2.40. Replacement of oil in the automatic transmission


Arrangement of traffic jams of discharge of oil from differential and the transmission

Over time there is a transmission oil aging. At the same time its greasing properties inevitably worsen. Therefore it is necessary to carry out, as a rule, with certain intervals oil replacement.

When replacing oil the car has to stand in horizontal position and, as well as when checking level of oil. Besides, the transmission has to be heated-up that oil was rather liquid, and foreign particles were still mixed with oil, that is that they left with oil. Therefore before replacement of oil it is necessary to pass several kilometers for warming up of the transmission. Sometimes oil of the automatic transmission becomes very hot so observe extra care if right after driving put the car in repair.

1. Install the car over a viewing hole. Beware of a hot exhaust pipe when you work under the car.
2. Install the corresponding container under a drain stopper of the automatic transmission and unscrew a drain stopper.  
3. After discharge of oil from the automatic transmission establish a masloslivny stopper into place.
4. Through a pipe for the probe of measurement of level of oil in the automatic transmission fill in oil in the transmission.
5. Start the engine and move the selector lever from situation P in L, then again to situation P and tighten the emergency brake.
6. During the operation of the engine idling check oil level in the automatic transmission.
