3.7.1. Check of the lubrication system

1. Open a cowl. You do not hurry to check oil level in the engine at once — let's it flow down in an oil case, it will take two-three minutes. During this time attentively examine the engine — whether there are no fresh potek of oil on it.
2. Glance under a forward part of the car — whether the oil case of the engine is punched whether there is no leak there.

Good advice
If leak of oil from the punched oil case is found, try to close up temporarily it on the place. For this purpose it is possible to use an inner tube, a piece of rubber, a rag, a wooden stopper, etc.

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

Prevention
During the work it is possible to burn about hot details of the engine therefore put on gloves and clothes with long sleeves.

4. Take out the oil probe, wipe it with a pure rag and insert into place. Once again get the probe and check oil level. Level has to be between tags "0" and "П".
5. If the level of oil is lower than a tag "0", add oil to norm.
Launch the engine. If at normal level the lamp of emergency pressure drop of oil went out, it is possible to continue the movement. If the lamp all the same burns, check serviceability of the sensor of pressure of oil. For this purpose unscrew the regular sensor of pressure of oil and install the mechanical manometer on its place. If pressure at normal rate of rotation of idling more than 0,065 MPas (0,65 kgfs/cm2) also increases with growth of turns, the sensor or its electric chain are faulty. If after elimination of all visible reasons oil pressure in the engine insufficiently (the alarm lamp of emergency pressure drop of oil burns), diagnostics and repair of the engine are required (see. "Repair of the engine").
