6.3.3. Check of level of oil in the transmission


An inspection of level of oil should be carried out directly after a car stop when oil is warmed, after the movement up to the normal working temperature (about 65 °C).

1. To install the car on a horizontal, plain and firm surface, to tighten the lever of the emergency brake and to press a brake pedal.
2. At the engine idling three times consistently to install the gear shifting lever in all provisions.
3. To install the gear shifting lever in situation "P" and to wait 1 minute.
4. In operating time of the engine idling to take the index of level of oil in the transmission, to wipe absolutely dry rag which is not leaving threads, to insert the index against the stop into an opening of a case and again to take. The trace from oil has to be between hyphens of "min" and "max".
5. In case of need to add amount of oil, adding it through an opening of the index of level in a case.


If the level of oil is below the sign "min", then it is necessary to check tightness of a radiator of oil and the transmission. Dark, and it is even worse black, color of oil testifies to considerable wear of tapes of brakes or disks of couplings of the automatic transmission. It is necessary to wash out or fine it at service station.
