Visual check on oil leak


  1. At the engine covered by oil and a high expense of oil it is necessary to check where oil acts. For this purpose to check the following places:
    • To open a cover of a jellied mouth and to check laying for existence of damages and cracks.
    • To check durability of landing of a ventilating hose from a cover of a jellied opening to the air filter.
    • Laying of a cover of a head of cylinders.
    • Laying of a head of cylinders.
    • Ignition distributor flange junction.
    • Laying of an oil filter: The filter on a flange.
    • Stopper of a masloslivny opening (laying).
    • Laying of the pallet of a case.
    • Junction of the engine and transmission (laying on a flywheel or a shaft of the transmission).
  2. As at leakage oil spreads on the big area, at once to find the place of leak quite difficult. By search arrive as follows:
    • To make a wash of the engine. To cover the engine with a cold cleaner and after a while to rinse with water. Previously to cover the distributor of ignition and the generator with plastic packages.
    • To powder junctions and consolidations on the engine outside with talc or lime.
    • To check oil level, if necessary to add.
    • To make a trial trip. As oil when heating is diluted and therefore appears in places of leak quicker, a trial trip it is necessary to make on distance 30 km on the speedway.
    • Then, lighting the engine with a lamp, to define the place of leak and to eliminate malfunction.
