Check of level ATF and liquids of forward differential of automatic transmission

Check of level ATF and liquids of forward differential avtoma-ticheskoj transmissions (each 4800 km
Run or once a month)


1. Correctness of level ATF is one of critical operational parametres of the models equipped АТ. Excessive falling of level ATF can lead to proslipping of the converter of rotation whereas the excessive quantity of a liquid conducts to its foaming, to formation of leaks and is fraught with a transmission exit out of operation.
2. Check of level ATF should be made at разогретой to normal working temperature of transmission (16 20 km of run, 72 80 С).

It is not necessary to make check of level ATF right after car operation on high speeds, in the conditions of a city cycle in hot weather, or after trailer towage, - preliminary allow liquids to cool down within nearby 30 minutes.

3. Park the car on an equal horizontal platform with a firm covering, strongly cock a lay brake. If the engine cold, start it and warm up to normal working temperature on single turns. At the working engine squeeze out a pedal of a foot brake and serially spend selector AT lever through all positions, in summary having returned it in position “Р”.
4. Without suppressing the engine, take from a directing tube measuring probe. Fingers remove from an edge probeа traces ATF and to the touch estimate its condition.
5. Carefully wipe an edge pure rags and enter probe back into directing tube, densely having planted a cover on a mouth.
6. Again take probe from a mouth and on length of the moistened site of an edge define level ATF in картере transmissions. The liquid of automatic transmission has high factor of thermal expansion, therefore its level strongly depends on temperature. On an edge probeа it is put two scales of the control of level: for measurement on cold (COLD) and on hot transmission (NOTES).

Composers of the present Management recommend to make measurement on heated-up to normal working temperature АТ (after a short trip with movement in various high-speed ranges).

7. In case of need make corresponding updating, through a funnel having added in transmission a liquid of a demanded grade, - fill in ATF directly in a mouth of a directing tube measuring probeа.
8. For lifting of level ATF from the bottom border of a working range probeа to top it is required about 0.6 l of a liquid - add ATF in the small portions in stages, each time checking level.
9. Simultaneously with level it is necessary to check as well condition ATF. If the liquid moistening the end of an edge probeа has a dark red-brown shade, or smells as ashes, ATF it is necessary to replace (the Section Replacement ATF of automatic transmission) see. In the absence of confidence of correctness of an estimation of a condition трансмиссионной liquids compare it on colour and a smell with fresh ATF.
10. Check of level of oil of differential АТ is made in a similar manner. Measuring probe it is symmetrized probeу measurements of level ATF rather ДП трансмиссионной assemblages. Measurement should be made on hot transmission, after approximately 15 minutes after engine deenergizing, on an edge probeа one measuring scale with two labels is put only: L and F between which oil level should be supported.
