2.4. Check of level of oil and liquids


Engine oil

Probe arrangement for check of level of oil
The probe for check of level of oil (it is specified by an arrow) is located on the right back side of the engine. Level of oil needs to be checked before a trip on the car or in 15 minutes after switching off of the engine.

The probe for check of level of oil


Get the probe and wipe the end of the probe. Insert the probe up to the end into a tube and again get it. Level of oil has to be between two lines on the probe. The difference in number of oil between marks in the probe makes about 1 liter.

Bulk mouth

To add oil twist the cap of a bulk mouth located on a cover of a head of cylinders, insert a funnel (it is specified by an arrow) into a mouth and fill in oil.

Cooling liquid

Regularly check the level of cooling liquid in a tank by means of the probe or marks in a tank wall. When the engine is heated-up, the level of liquid has to increase to the top mark. Add cooling liquid if it is necessary.

Tank for cooling liquid
Check that the level of cooling liquid was between the marks Full and Low. If necessary add the necessary amount of antifreeze and water.

When checking level of cooling liquid also check a condition of the liquid. If liquid gained brown or rusty color, it is necessary to replace and wash out it the cooling system.

The washing liquid

Tank for liquid of washers

The tank for liquid of washers of a windshield is located in the right forward corner of a motive compartment. Check that the level of liquid was near the top mark in a jellied mouth.

In warm climate fill in a tank only on two thirds, and in a frigid climate, use solution of special nonfreezing liquid. Do not use antifreeze as it can damage car paint.

Liquid of the hydraulic drive of brakes and coupling

Check that the level of liquid was between the marks MOVE and MIN located on a tank wall. Add liquid of the required type if it is necessary.

Check a condition of the liquid if at it there are parts of dirt or a droplet of water, liquid needs to be merged and filled system with new liquid.
