Replacement of impellent oil and oil filter


On some models the key of square section suitable on the extent can be necessary for an otdavaniye of a drain stopper of the pallet of a case. Keys of this kind always it is possible to get in firm Citroёn company service center.

Regular change of impellent oil and the oil filter is one of the most important procedures of routine maintenance which are subject to performance by own strengths of the owner of the car. Eventually engine oil is exposed to a razzhizheniye and pollution that conducts to increase in speed of wear of internal components of the engine.


1. Before starting procedure performance, prepare all necessary tools and materials. Make sure available near at hand enough of pure rags and old newspapers for collecting the spilled oil. In an ideal the engine should be heated-up previously as hot oil possesses bigger fluidity and better washes away шлам. Working under the car, try not to touch hot surfaces of components of system of release (in particular to the catalytic converter) and the power unit. In order to avoid an oshparivaniye and for protection of hands against harmful cancerogenic effects of impellent oil to perform work it is best of all in rubber gloves. For simplification of access to the components located under the bottom the car should be lifted over the earth and to establish on reliable props, or to tire out on a platform / a viewing hole. The car should occupy such situation that the drain stopper appeared in the most lower part of the pallet. At the corresponding complete set it is necessary to remove also protection of a case.

2. By means of a cap or face natural a collar unscrew on a half of turn a drain stopper of the pallet of a case

3. On some models the reversing of a stopper can be made only by means of a special key of square section

4. Establish under a drain opening capacity suitable on volume, then finally turn out a stopper.

At the last stage, turning out a drain stopper manually, all the time press it to an opening. When the carving will end, sharp movement clean a stopper, trying, that the stream of oil got to the prepared capacity, instead of to you in a sleeve.

5. Remove from a stopper a sealing ring.
6. Allow oil to follow for some time from the case pallet, in case of need move as appropriate drain capacity that the weakening stream did not start to spill by.
7. After all oil will be lowered, wipe pure rags a stopper and a pallet surface round a drain opening. Replace a sealing washer. Screw a stopper on a place and strongly tighten it.
8. Move drain capacity under the oil filter located on a forward part of the block of cylinders, under the inlet pipeline.

9. For an initial otpuskaniye of the oil filter it is most correct to use a special chain or tape key.

10. Then it is possible to turn out the filter hands.

11. Let out oil from the filter in drain capacity.

As the removed filter usually is not subject to a reuse, it can be turned out from the block, having used a big screw-driver to which should pierce the filter through sideways.

12. Pure rags wipe a surface of the block of cylinders interfaced to the filter, having completely removed from it traces of oil and шлама. Having examined the removed filter, make sure that its sealing laying did not remain stuck to a block surface. If the such occurred, carefully remove laying.
13. Slightly grease a sealing ring of the new filter with pure impellent oil and screw the filter on the regular place. By hand strongly tighten the filter. At all do not use for a filter tightening any tool in order to avoid laying damage.
14. Take from under the car drain capacity and the tool. Establish into place protection of a case (track durability of a tightening of fixture) and lower the car on the earth.
15. Take measuring щуп, then turn on and uncover a jellied mouth on a cover of a head of cylinders. Through a mouth fill in in the engine necessary amount of fresh engine oil of a demanded grade (see. Weekly checks). In order to avoid a prolivaniye of oil it is most correct to use the butterdish equipped with a nouse, or a funnel. At first fill in a half of nominal volume of oil and wait some minutes, let's to oil flow down in the case pallet. Continue to fill in oil in the small portions until its level will not rise to the bottom mark in an edge measuring щупа. Level lifting from the bottom mark on щупе to top will need about 1.5 more l of oil. On termination of establish into place measuring щуп and tighten a cover of a jellied mouth.
16. Start the engine and let's to it work within several minutes, then examine on existence of signs of leaks the oil filter and a drain stopper of the pallet of a case. Remember that at the first start of the engine after oil change the control lamp of pressure of oil will go out with a delay in some seconds during which there will be a filling of oil galleries of the engine and a cavity of the new oil filter.
17. Muffle the engine, wait some minutes, let's to oil flow down in the case pallet, then repeat level check, in case of need make the corresponding adjustment.
18. The merged impellent oil is subject to utilization in accordance with the established procedure.

It is indecent and illegal to merge the fulfilled oil in the sewerage — it is necessary to hand over it in special places of acceptance, - consult at the next car repair shop.
