    How much oil to pour into the engine?

    Timely replacement of engine oil can save the engine from damage. This fact is known to every motorist, but few know about how much oil to pour into the engine. This article is primarily focused on those who are new and have not yet figured out the device of the car. In it, we consider how much engine oil should be poured into the engine.

    How much oil is needed for the engine

    First of all, we note that the amount of engine oil depends on the engine size. Consider a specific example that illustrates a novice car enthusiast's dependence of engine size on the required amount of oil.

    As an example, take a 1.6 liter engine.

    For such an engine, as a rule, from 3, 2 to 4 liters will suffice. oils. Since most canisters have a volume of 4 liters, it is recommended to fill in the engine not all the oil at once, otherwise there will be a high load on the engine seals. It is best to buy a canister with 4 liters of engine oil for a given engine size,pour into the engine at the rate (for each model of the car has its own standards for the volume of engine oil, so we recommend to refer to the operating instructions for clarification), and then top up the remaining oil.

    Engine oil should be poured into the engine carefully. In this case, be sure to follow the readings of the probe. The dipstick is specifically designed to show the amount of engine oil in the engine.

    In general, the engine oil should be poured so that the readings of the probe were at a level slightly above average. In this way, you will be able to provide the optimum amount of engine oil to your engine and at the same time avoid stressing the oil seals. You can also drain the old oil, see how much it takes, and pour a little more than the resulting volume.

    The important point is the choice of engine oil, but this is a topic for another article.
