Replacement of impellent oil and the oil filter
Impellent oil can be sucked away by means of a special probe (is available on filling stations) through a tube probe measurements of level of oil. After that it is necessary to fill system with oil, as a rule.
Do not pour out the fulfilled oil together with a household waste or otherwise. It can cause environmental contamination.
Expediently at oil replacement to fix on the engine a label with mark of oil and its viscosity.
Application of oils of various types adversely affects engine work. It is not recommended to mix various marks of oils also. Impellent oils of the same type and mark, but various viscosity in necessary cases, in particular in inter-season period, can mix up.
It will be necessary for work for you:
- The tool for высасывания oils and capacity for oil gathering if oil is exhausted.
- If oil merges: the Viewing hole or the hydraulic garage lift with supports, and also a head for отворачивания stoppers of a drain aperture.
- The petrol engine: Tool HAZET 2169 for отворачивания covers of the oil filter.
- Capacity for gathering of oil in volume not less than 7 l.
Necessary operational materials/spare parts:
- Depending on the engine from 4.0 to 6.5 l of impellent oil. It is necessary to apply only the oil resolved by firm BMW, address to Specifications.
- Filtering element of the oil filter.
- Only if oil is not sucked away: the Aluminium lining for a stopper of a drain aperture. The stopper carving has external diameter of 12 mm, the lining has the size А12 x 15.5 and is sometimes delivered complete with the oil filter.
- Sealing ring for the case of the oil filter and depending on execution one or two sealing rings for the central bolt. The same variant of the engine can have two various executions of the filter. It is necessary to pay attention to it at purchase of spare parts.
Protect environment, at all do not pour out the fulfilled oil and do not delete it together with a household waste.
Removal of impellent oil
Impellent oil can or be removed through an aperture щупового the level index, or to merge from the pallet crankcase. For высасывания the special pump is required. Thus it is necessary to watch that the hose corresponded to a directing tube of the index of level. Devices for высасывания can be available on filling stations. However thus, as a rule, it is necessary to buy oil at the same station.
1 Warm up oil to working temperature. For this purpose pass on the car so that the index of temperature of a cooling liquid showed normal working temperature.
2 Establish the car on supports.
4 Substitute under the pallet crankcase
Replacement of the oil filter, execution with the central bolt
7 Uncover the filter-2 with the central bolt-1.
8 Wait, while will flow down oil from the filter case. After that take out filtering element-3. Wipe a rag flowing down oil.
9 Insert into the filter case a new filtering element.
10 Clear a cover of the oil filter.
12 Insert directly from above a cover of the oil filter and press it.
13 Tighten the central bolt the moment 25 Nm.
Replacement of the oil filter, execution with a carving cover
16 Insert into the case a new filtering element.
17 Replace rubber rings (with illustrations 6.15) on the central bolt and a cover. Grease new sealing rings with impellent oil.
18 Put directly from above a cover of the oil filter with маслопроводом and press it. Thus маслопровод enters into a corresponding aperture at the filter bottom.
19 Tighten a cover the moment 25 Nm.
Filling of system with oil
20 Screw a stopper of a drain aperture with a new sealing ring and tighten densely but so that not to press. The moment of an inhaling for carving М12 (“17”) makes a key 25 Nm, for carving М22 – 60 Nm.
21 Fill in new oil through a jellied branch pipe of a cover of a head of cylinders. The volume of filled in oil is resulted in Specifications.
22 Start the engine and allow to it to work on single turns until the control lamp will go out. Stop the engine.
23 Having waited for 5 mines, check up level of oil and if necessary add oil. The difference between marks of level of oil Min and Max corresponds to volume of 1 l.
24 Close заслонку in a cover of an impellent compartment under the pallet crankcase and turn a crosswise screw-driver запорный an element on 1/4 turns, having fixed, thus, заслонку.
25 Pass on the car and check up tightness of a drain stopper and the oil filter. If necessary cautiously tighten.
