Check of level and addition of transmission liquid

For addition and filling of AT it is necessary to use only hydraulic liquid of the recommended grade (see size tables and adjustments at the end of the Management).

Level of transmission liquid should be checked regularly according to the schedule of routine maintenance of the car. Check of level of transmission liquid each time when filling car by fuel becomes a useful habit.

Precisely to define level of transmission liquid it is impossible at car operation in hot weather, during a long high-speed trip, and also at car towage. In all listed cases before starting check of level of liquid let's transmissions cool down within not less than 30 minutes.

Level of liquid can be checked with use of a range of COLD on an edge measuring щупа after engine warming up before a trip, however then it is necessary to repeat check in a range of NOTES after trip end.


    Warm up transmission to normal working temperature, having banished the car on the road about 5 km.
    to equal horizontal platform with a firm covering also cock the parking brake. Carry out the selector lever serially through all provisions, in end having established it in the situation "R". Leave the engine working at single turns during the whole time of check.
    Carefully wipe the top part of a tube measuring щупа / a jellied mouth and a surface round it in order to avoid hit in transmission of extraneous subjects, garbage and dirt at extraction щупа. Location щупа in an impellent compartment is shown on an accompanying illustration. On an insert measured marking of an edge щупа is shown.
    Take щуп and wipe its edge pure неворсящейся rags. Again completely insert щуп into a tube of a jellied mouth. Repeatedly take щуп and by height of the moistened part of an edge determine level of transmission liquid. The upper edge of the moistened site should be in a range of NOTES of an edge. At the same time check liquid on pollution, decolouration and existence of a smell of burning.

For a guarantee of accuracy of measurement repeat check of level of liquid several times, examining an edge щупа from both parties. Pollution and liquid decolouration, and also presence of a smell of burning speak about existence of problems of the mechanical plan and need of display of transmission to the expert.

    If necessary add in transmission the necessary amount of liquid of a demanded grade through a tube measuring щупа. Finish liquid level to hit it in a range of NOTES on an edge measuring щупа. In order to avoid removal of false testimonies before making check allow liquid to flow down completely from tube walls.

Do not overflow transmission as it can lead to foaming in liquid and to decrease in efficiency of functioning of transmission. If addition of liquid has to be made regularly and often (or a large number), it is necessary to check transmission on existence of signs of leaks and immediately to eliminate their reason.

    Establish measuring щуп into place, having tracked, that in transmission dirt was not brought.
