Replacement of impellent oil and the oil filter


On some models for отдавания a drain stopper of the pallet картера the key of square section trying on the size can be necessary. Keys of this kind always can be got in the firm service-centre of company Citroyon.

Regular change of impellent oil and the oil filter is one of the most important procedures of routine maintenance which are subject to performance by own forces of the owner of the car. Eventually engine oil is exposed разжижению and to pollution that conducts to increase in speed of deterioration of internal components of the engine.


1. Before to start procedure performance, prepare all necessary tools and materials. Make sure available near at hand enough of pure rags and old newspapers for gathering of the spilt oil. In an ideal the engine should be preliminary heated-up, as hot oil possesses большей fluidity and is better washes away шлам. Working under the car, try not to touch hot surfaces of components of system of release (in particular to каталитическому to the converter) and the power unit. In avoidance ошпаривания and for protection of hands against harmful cancerogenic influence of impellent oil to perform work is better in rubber gloves. For simplification of access to the components located under the bottom the car should be lifted over the earth and to establish on reliable props, or to tyre out on a platform / a viewing hole. The car should occupy such position that the drain stopper has appeared in the lowermost part of the pallet. At a corresponding complete set it is necessary to remove also protection картера.

2. With the help накидного or a face key with a collar turn on on a half-turn a drain stopper of the pallet картера

3. On some models the stopper reversing can be made only by means of a special key of square section

4. Establish under a drain aperture capacity approaching on volume, then definitively turn out a stopper.

At last stage, turning out a drain stopper manually, all time press it to an aperture. When the carving will end, sharp movement clean a stopper, trying, that the oil stream has got to the prepared capacity, instead of to you in a sleeve.

5. Remove from a stopper a sealing ring.
6. Allow oil to follow during some time from the pallet картера, in case of need move in appropriate way drain capacity that the weakening stream has not started to spill by.
7. After all oil will be lowered, wipe pure rags a stopper and a surface of the pallet round a drain aperture. Replace a sealing washer. Screw a stopper into place and strongly tighten it.
8. Move drain capacity under the oil filter located on a forward part of the block of cylinders, under the inlet pipeline.

9. For initial отпускания the oil filter most correctly to take advantage of a special chain or tape key.

10. Then it is possible to turn out the filter hands.

11. Let out oil from the filter in drain capacity.

As the removed filter usually is not subject to a reuse, it can be turned out from the block, having taken advantage of the big screw-driver to which should pierce the filter through sideways.

12. Pure rags wipe a surface of the block of cylinders interfaced to the filter, completely having removed from it traces of oil and шлама. Having examined the removed filter, make sure that its sealing lining did not remain stuck to a block surface. If the such has occurred, cautiously remove a lining.
13. Slightly grease a sealing ring of the new filter with pure impellent oil and screw the filter on the regular place. By hand strongly tighten the filter. At all do not use for a tightening of the filter any tool in order to avoid lining damage.
14. Take from under the car drain capacity and the tool. Establish into place protection картера (track durability of a tightening of fixture) and lower the car on the earth.
15. Take measuring probe, then turn on and uncover a jellied mouth on a cover of a head of cylinders. Through a mouth fill in in the engine necessary quantity of fresh engine oil of a demanded grade (Weekly checks see). In avoidance проливания oils most correctly to take advantage of the butterdish equipped with a nouse, or a funnel. At first fill in half of nominal volume of oil and wait for some minutes, having allowed to oil to flow down in the pallet картера. Continue to fill in oil in the small portions until its level will not rise to the bottom mark in an edge measuring probeа. For lifting of level from the bottom mark on probeе to top it is required about 1.5 l of oil. On termination of establish into place measuring probe and tighten a cover of a jellied mouth.
16. Start the engine and allow to it to work within several minutes, then examine on presence of signs of leaks the oil filter and a drain stopper of the pallet картера. Remember that at the first start of the engine after oil change the control lamp of pressure of oil will go out with a delay in some seconds during which there will be a filling of oil galleries of the engine and a cavity of the new oil filter.
17. Muffle the engine, wait for some minutes, having allowed to oil to flow down in the pallet картера, then repeat level check, in case of need make corresponding updating.
18. The churned impellent butter is subject to recycling when due hereunder.

It is indecent and illegal to merge the fulfilled oil in the water drain — it is necessary to hand over it in special places of acceptance, - consult on the nearest car repair shop.
