how to change the engine oil and filter on a peugeot 205 diesel part one
The original heat-hatch\' -
Due to their styling, performance, and flexible handling capabilities, they have been very popular since the launch in 1983.
The reliability of the diesel version is legendary, and there are a lot of good
The example was set on the road today.
In the past decade, the cost of driving a car has increased significantly, and even car owners like diesel 205 need to minimize unnecessary spending as much as possible.
An easy way to do this is to change the oil yourself.
The 205 diesel engine is known for being almost unbreakable, but only if the oil and filter are replaced every 6000 miles.
It\'s an easy job to do and it only takes about half an hour.
Oil and filters can be purchased cheaply under any car factor or carparts shop.
I suggest you use half
Synthetic oil, because it is more durable than ordinary mineral oil, and only a little more expensive.
Be sure to assemble everything you need before you start. These are:1)
5 liters and half
Synthetic oil for diesel engine
New oil filter (FRAM part No. PH5566A)3)
Plug 4 of New 16mm copper gasket oil bottom shell)Old washing-up bowl5)Latex gloves6)Newspaper7)Kitchen paper8)
Tools for oil bottom plug (
17mm sockets or 8mm square meters for turbine engines)9)
StrapI also likes to flatten a carton and let it kneel down.
First of all, the car should be parked on the ideal plane and level in the garage, but if you do not choose the days when the wind does not blow.
Start the engine so that it is close to the normal operating temperature and turn it off.
This is because the old oil will drain faster when it is warm.
Next, wear gloves, open the hood and release the refueling cap on top of the engine.
It\'s orange. There are two springs.
Clip it and dip-
The stick went down through the middle.
The fuel cap is located in the highest part of the engine.
Now spread out the newspaper under the car, grab any drops of water, and put the washed things in --
Bowl under plug of oil bottom shell.
It is located at the bottom of the engine.
If you are lucky enough to have the turbo version, use the 8mm square tool on the socket to reverse the oil pan plug
Clockwise, otherwise, you need a 17mm ring wrench or socket.
Be very careful here.
The oil may be hot enough to burn you, and when you remove the plug, the oil will spray out quickly.
The oil will stop dripping in a few minutes.
Meanwhile, move the washing machine carefully
Lift the bowl slightly to you so that it is also under the oil filter now. On the non-
The turbo engine can touch the filter well and you can easily get around it, screw it down and turn the back againclockwise.
Please note that when the hot oil is removed it will overflow from the filter and should remain upright until you can drain it into the washup bowl.
This is not the case with turbine engines, however.
The opportunity to get into the oil filter is very limited and I find that I am unable to remove it in the normal way.
The way I remove the filter sounds fierce, but it works.
What I did was, lean against the engine compartment, gently tap on two slender screwdrivers, go through the top of the filter, down to the bottom, completely opposite each other, and as close as possible on both sides, which can be filtered.
Then I put a short metal stick on top of the filter and put it around the counter
Clockwise until it touches the two blades of the screwdriver.
By keeping the screwdriver handle vertical with one hand, I have enough money to turn the filter with the other hand and release it.
Once relaxed, it rotates with my fingers.
If you check it after the filter is turned off, you will find that this method does not cause any damage to the engine.
You\'re half done now. . .
Now is the time to put it all back together.
First clean the oil pan plug, then install the new copper washer on it.
Now, wipe the plug hole with kitchen paper before screwing the plug back (clockwise)until hand-tight.
Tighten It 3/4 more with this tool and you\'ll be done.
Don\'t tighten any more because you may distort the metal and cause oil leakage.
Next, wipe any old oil from around the filter housing and be careful not to introduce dirt into the groove.
Take a new filter from the box and look below.
You will see a thick black rubber seal ring.
It must be lubricated with a little fresh oil before installation.
The easy way to do this is to dip the gloved fingertip into the new oil and then \"apply\" around the rubber ring until it looks obviously greasy.
Open the new filter now (clockwise)
Be careful not to cross-
Thread it at the beginning.
Continue to gently turn the filter with your hands until you feel the resistance and then turn another 1/2.
There is no need to tighten again, doing so will only make it difficult to remove within the next service interval.
At this point, you are ready to put the new oil into the engine.
The engine needs 4.
A total of 5 liters of oil, so you will find it useful to put 4 liters of oil right away.
It can be difficult to pour a whole bottle of oil without spilling any oil, so go slowly and give the oil time to drain from the filling hole, otherwise it may bubble and splash to the side.
You have to be very careful if you use the funnel because it\'s easy for you to lose the whole funnel
It\'s all because of this effect.
After you enter the first 4 liters, it\'s time to start the engine and allocate new oil inside the engine.
Before the new filter is full, there will be a slight delay in the oil pressure of the building, so the oil warning light may last for a few seconds at the beginning.
Run the engine for one minute, then turn it off and keep it for at least 5 minutes.
This gives the time for the oil to return to the oil bottom shell, and then you can make a proper reading of the dipstick.
Stick from the refueling cover and carefully wipe it clean on the kitchen paper.
Stick all the way to its slot and take it out again.
This time you will be able to see how far the new oil has risen between the two gaps. The dip-
The stick looks a bit like a thin flat wire band
To get real reading, be sure to look at both sides.
Reading at any position between the upper and lower mark means that the engine has enough oil to run without damage, but you should always try to keep the oil in the upper mark or
This is for two reasons: more oil means more fresh oil in the engine, but the oil also helps to cool parts in the engine that cannot be used with water.
Therefore, oil plays two vital roles in the engine: lubrication and cooling.
Make the oil to the right level on the dip
Persistence can be a bit tricky and you have to be careful not to overdo itfill with oil -
In the best case, the engine blows out the excess oil through its breathing tube and enters the air filter;
In the worst case, it causes the oil seal to break and then leak.
Just go ahead and add a little oil and let it settle for a minute before wiping off the stick and checking again.
It helps to know what you see.
Windows through the sides of the oil bottle are marked in the 1/4 liter section, so you know how much the engine already has.
Don\'t just pour 4.
Still, 5 liters go straight into the engine because there is still a little bit of old oil left in the engine.
It\'s time to sort it out.
Wipe any oil spilled on the engine with kitchen paper and put it in a plastic bag with an old filter.
I then pour the used oil into the old plastic bottle ready for shipment to the recycling center.
The same is true of the newspapers and cardboard I used.
In any event, oil or anything contaminated by oil shall not be dumped as domestic waste or any drain pipe.
It must be handled properly. That\'s it now.
Clean your tools, wash your hands and drive.
Please note how the engine sounds smoother and pulls more eagerly --
You may think this is saying thank you!
You just saved yourself a lot of money and put in the best oil! Enjoy. . .
