Ford Focus>> System of greasing of the engine>> Check уровеня oils
Check oil level after every third filling or a long trip. During a trip or at old engines with a high consumption of oil) it is recommended to check oil level each 1000 km. Add oil before level of oil will be established in the middle of two labels. In this case in your car there are no about 0,5 l.
Check of level of oil carry out in the following sequence:
- check oil level, whenever possible, on the cold engine, before its start-up. Your car should stand on an equal surface. To measure oil level on the hot engine, muffle the engine and let's to it stand at least 5 minutes that oil gathered in an oil case;
- take out the index of level of oil. Be careful, after operation of the engine it can be very hot. Wipe the index rags without small knots or a paper napkin, insert into an opening, wait a little and again take out;
- if level of oil is in the top quarter between marks «мin» and "move", everything is all right. If level is in the middle between labels, add 0,5 l. If level is below «min» label, immediately add oil to necessary level, it is about 1 l.
- pour oil so that its level never exceeded labels "move". Our council: always support level in the top quarter. Too much oil harms to your engine: it starts to look for a free exit through consolidations that leads to a zamaslivaniye of coupling, a pulley of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units, or to get to system of ventilation of a case;
- oil add, using a pure funnel.
For the majority of engines of the Focus car replacement of oil is provided after 15 000 km of run. If you go on big distances, can increase this interval by 5000 km. If go in the city or on short distances, it is recommended to change oil more often. In the winter it should be changed after 6000 km of run or times in half a year.
