According to the regulations of this car, the engine oil and oil filter are supposed to be replaced after 15 thousand km
Some vehicle configurations have a signaling device that warns of the oil change period.
Of course, this period implies that the engine will be operated under normal conditions, when filled with marked, conditioned oil.
In aggressive environments and dusty operating conditions, it is imperative to reduce this period, regardless of "very high-quality oils".
It is necessary, at least by the color of the oil film on the dipstick, and by smell, to determine the difference in color and smell of the oil that is in the engine crankcase and in the canister, as well as the viscosity of the oil.
K4M 1.6 L engine oil quantity of the oil system is 4.8 liters. F4R 2.0 L engine oil quantity of oil system 5.4 liters.
The oils used are motor oils with API quality class: SM; SL and SAE viscosity: 5W30; 5W40; 5W50; 0W30; 0W40.
You need to check the oil level daily or during a long trip after 300-400 km of the car.
It is necessary to add oil of the same brand as it was filled in. Do not mix oils, especially synthetic oils with mineral oils.
If the vehicle has an F4R 2.0 L engine
Open the hood and remove the oil level dipstick.
We wipe the probe with a clean cloth and insert it into the guide tube until it stops.
Remove the pointer again and use the edge of the oil film on the dipstick to determine the oil level in the engine sump.
The oil level should be between the dimples on the dipstick, approximately in the middle.
If the vehicle has a K4M 1.6 L engine
In a K4M engine, the oil level must be between the top and bottom of the shaded area
If the level is insufficient, then
Turn and remove the oil filler cap
Add oil little by little. After waiting a bit for the oil to merge into the crankcase, we check the oil level again.
Changing engine oil and filter
Preparing the car for work.
Tools will be required: an 8 square, an oil filter remover, a container for drained oil and rags.
We remove the protection of the power plant (article - Removing the protection of the engine, wheel arch liners and mudguards Renault Duster).
You can of course not remove the protection of the power plant, a technological hole is provided for this operation. But here it must be borne in mind that part of the oil can get into the protection, especially when removing the oil filter. And this can affect the determination of the tightness of the lubrication system.
Remove the oil filler cap.
We substitute a container for draining the oil.
Unscrew the drain plug and drain the oil into a container.
A sealing washer is installed on the drain plug, in case of damage it can be replaced with a copper gasket.
Remove oil drips and tighten the drain plug.
To approach the filter, remove the fuel rail protection for this:
On the F4R engine, through the channels with a head of 13, unscrew the two nuts of the studs securing the ramp protection
We take it out of the engine compartment
In the same way, we take out the ramp protection on the K4M engine
Loosen the filter with a puller
Unscrew and remove the oil filter by hand
We clean the filter seat from dirt and oil drips
Lubricate the rubber gasket of the new filter with a thin layer of oil and wrap the filter until it comes into contact with the seating surface.
Tighten the filter another 2/3 of a turn. Fill the engine with oil through the oil filler neck.
Close the oil filler cap. We start the engine for 2 - 3 minutes.
We make sure that the emergency oil pressure indicator in the instrument cluster has gone out.
Check the tightness of the connection between the oil filter and the drain plug.
We stop the engine, and after a short period of time we check the oil level.
If necessary, tighten the oil filter and drain plug.
Install all parts in reverse order.
If the car has an oil change warning system every 15 thousand kilometers, then you need to initialize the system.
You need to turn on the ignition and within 10 seconds, pressing the gas pedal, hold it down, press the brake pedal three times.
After that, the indicator should go out.
If the indicator does not go out, repeat the system initialization.
If we change the oil before the indicator lights up, then in order for the indicator not to light up after reaching 15 thousand km, it is also necessary to initialize the system.
In this case, the indicator should light up for about five seconds.
