Check of pressure of oil

The case of the oil filter

2 — a cover bolt
9 — a sealing lining of the case of the filter
10 — a fastening bolt

11 — the case of the oil filter
12 — the gauge-switch of the relay of pressure of oil

If at the working engine and correct level of oil the signalling device of level of oil does not die away, it is necessary to stop immediately the engine and not to start it before malfunction elimination. If pressure of oil deviates demanded value, address to Section Diagnostics of malfunctions.


 CHECK

HUNDRED instead of a cover of the oil filter at petrol engines establish special tool BMW with joining for a manometre. As in most cases such tool available is not present, check is spent with application of the dismantled gauge of the relay of pressure of oil.

1 Check up oil level, if necessary add.
2 Start the engine and warm up it. The oil temperature should be nearby +80С.
3 Gauge of the relay of pressure of oil-12 is on the case of the oil filter-11. Turn away a bolt-2 and uncover the oil filter that oil from the filter has merged in the engine. There is other execution of the oil filter with a screw cover. Turn away a cover of the filter and remove it, address to Section Replacement of impellent oil and the oil filter.

The flowed out oil wipe a rag.

5 Instead of the gauge of the relay of pressure of oil screw a corresponding manometre.

7 Start the engine and allow to it to work on single turns until the control lamp will go out. Value of pressure is resulted in Specifications.
8 Increase engine turns. Check up pressure of oil upon 5000 rpm.
9 Turn away a cover of the filter and remove it that oil has flown down in the engine.
10 Insert the gauge of pressure of oil with a sealing ring and fix the moment 20 Н•м. Join a socket and fix it.
11 Replace sealing rings on a cover of the oil filter and the central pipeline. Fix a cover on the case of the oil filter the moment 25 Н•м, address to Section Replacement of impellent oil and the oil filter.
