3.9.1. Check of system of greasing

1. Open a cowl. Do not hasten to check at once oil level in the engine — allow to it to flow down in oil картер, it will occupy two-three minutes. In this time attentively examine the engine — whether is not present on it fresh потеков some oil.
2. Glance under a forward part of the car — whether it is punched oil картер the engine, whether there is no there a leak.

If the leak of oil from punched oil картера is found out, try to close up temporarily it on a place. For this purpose it is possible to use an inner tube, a rubber piece, a rag, a wooden stopper, etc. Good result can give application of modern repair materials of type cold welding, available in sale in autoshops.

3. Pay attention to the oil filter. Oil can leak from under a rubber lining of the filter if it is damaged or the filter is poorly tightened. Sometimes happens a little enough to tighten it clockwise.

About hot details of the engine it is possible to burn, therefore put on gloves and clothes with long sleeves.

4. Take out oil щуп, wipe its pure rag and insert into place. Once again get щуп and check up oil level. It should be between labels MIN and MAX.
5. If level of oil below a label MIN, add oil to norm.

In the absence of a funnel for доливки oils it is possible to use a funnel made of a mouth of a plastic bottle.

6. Start up the engine. If at normal level the lamp of emergency pressure drop of oil has gone out, it is possible to continue movement. If the lamp does not die away, check up serviceability of the gauge of pressure of oil. It is established below in a back part of the block of cylinders near to a pulley of a cranked shaft. Turn out the regular gauge of pressure of oil (Replacement of the gauge of an alarm lamp of emergency pressure drop of oil see) and establish on its place a mechanical manometre. If pressure at a normal rate of rotation of idling more than 0,1 МПа (1,0 kgs/sm2) also increases with growth of frequency of rotation, the gauge or its electric chain are faulty.

If you do not have manometre, it is necessary to check up only reliability of contact in колодке with wires of the gauge or to replace the gauge on obviously serviceable.

If after elimination of all visible reasons pressure of oil in the engine insufficiently (the lamp of emergency pressure drop of oil burns), carry out diagnostics and engine repair (section 5 "Engine" see).

Do not try to reach to garage — the engine will fail. Tow off for repair the car with the idle engine.

Before to start engine repair, check up a condition of the oil pump (Repair of the oil pump see).
