Check of level of engine oil
When the engine is heated to working temperature and switched off, check oil level on the bayonet index of level.
For obtaining the right indication the car has to be stopped on the flat platform. After switching off of the engine wait several minutes in order that oil flew down back on an engine bottom.
Take the bayonet index of level and wipe it with a pure rag.
Again insert the bayonet index of level – press it those a time until it enters, otherwise the indication will be wrong.
Take the bayonet index of level and look at oil level on its end.
