PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Install the car horizontally.
2. Turn off a stopper of a control opening which is sideways on a check point case, a six-sided key. Level of oil has to be on bottom edge of a control opening.
3. If oil level insufficient, then add oil by means of the syringe, or squeezing out from a bottle. Keep in mind that on a part of the last and the distributor of zazhiganiyaskorostny models in the manual transmission liquid for automatic transmission is filled in. On such units there is a special plate near a control opening.
