Periodically check the oil in the car, can help us in traffic. This is an essential task of the process of maintenance of the car. If the oil level is not properly, your engine is subjected to unwanted stress and can be seriously affected. Generally this happens when you do not expect and puts you in a situation quite annoying. You should check the oil every 1,000 km or, to be calm before a long way.
To perform proper control, it is better to switch off the engine (for those who do not know During operation, the oil sump is taken on the piston, helping with the anointing corresponding hole of the chamber pistons and piston. Each of us She rubs her hands when we are cold. This happens in motor, but the oil is to ease the movement.)
This process is not very difficult. Generally all cars are equipped with a dipstick – which is a metal or plastic rod – In general at the end with a visible ring with which you can take out of the hole specifically designed for it. At the other end is a bookmark. This marking helps us realize if the oil level is correct or not. Usually about 3-5 cm from the bottom (from entering the motor) has hatched a notch or consists of several lines. The minimum level is reached when the oil reaches only gradation that are for the lower end of the dipstick. To have a proper level, it should not exceed the maximum level. Level should be, generally between the two lines.
Not only should the level interest us. As creams hands are different, as well as engine oils. Each one has different viscosity. Each engine manufacturer prescribes (a doctor) suitable for motor oil manufactured by it. After a certain time of operation, the oil loses its viscosity.
This can be seen when you put a finger on the dipstick, the place where it has a splash of oil (generally on the bottom) and the petting begin with the thumb, oiled. We can see “thick” oil by this method. Those familiar with this know that the viscosity of oil refers to its relative flow resistance at various temperatures. An oil should not only be sufficiently “thin” that it would run well at low temperatures, but must also be sufficiently “thick” can maintain adequate protection at high temperatures.
