Initial start of the engine after end of its major repairs

Having established the engine on the car, check up levels of impellent oil and cooling liquid. Once again make sure of correctness of connection of all hoses, wires and other lines of communication. Clean from an impellent compartment all tools, rags and other extraneous subjects.

Petrol models

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Remove spark plugs and disconnect electroconducting from ECU systems of injection of fuel (the Power supply system - petrol models see).
2. Turn the engine a starter until the control lamp of pressure of oil in an instrument guard will go out. Establish to the place of a candle and connect conducting to ECU injection systems.

Diesel models

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Disconnect electroconducting from запорного the electromagnetic valve on ТНВД (the Power supply system - diesel models see) and start to turn the engine a starter, without leaving time for warming up of candles накаливания. Wait switching-off of a control lamp of pressure of oil, then connect electroconducting to запорному to the valve.
2. Fill the power supply system (the Power supply system - diesel models see).
3. Completely squeeze out a gas pedal, turn the ignition key in position "M" and wait switching-off of a control lamp of preheat.

All models

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Start the engine in the usual way (start can take away slightly more time, than usually as there should be a filling of a path of the power supply system).
2. Having left the engine working on single turns, check up it on presence of signs of leaks of a cooling liquid, oil and fuel. It is not necessary to panic at occurrence of a smell of burning and smoke occurrence is there is a burning out of the greasings used at assemblage.
3. If everything is all right, wait warming up of the top hose of a radiator, then muffle the engine.
4. Check up installations of a corner of an advancing of ignition (petrol models) / correctness of phases timing (diesel models) and idling turns, then muffle the engine.
5. Allow to the engine to cool down within several minutes, then make checks of levels of oil and cooling liquid (address to the Head Routine maintenance). In case of need make corresponding updatings.
6. If the tightening of bolts of fastening of a head of cylinders has been made according to the instructions resulted in corresponding section, necessity for fixture pulling is absent.
7. If replacement of pistons, piston rings or bearings of a cranked shaft has been made, it is necessary to make обкатку the engine as though about was new. I.e. throughout the first 800 km (500 miles) run should be avoided full opening throttle заслонки, to try not to move накатом and with small turns of the engine. It is recommended also upon termination of обкатки to replace impellent oil and the oil filter.
