Check of the ATF AT/CVT level (each 4 800 km of run or time in three months)

Correctness of the ATF level is one of critical operational parameters of the models equipped with AT/CVT. Lowering of the ATF level can lead to pro-slipping of the converter of rotation whereas the excessive amount of liquid conducts to its foaming, to formation of leaks and is fraught with a transmission exit out of operation.
Check of the ATF level has to be made on the car parked on an equal horizontal platform with minute switching off of the engine.

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Take the measuring probe located in the lower part of a case of transmission near the right partition of a motive compartment (see an accompanying illustration). Fingers remove traces of ATF from a probe edge and estimate its condition.


2. Carefully wipe an edge pure rags and enter the probe back into the directing tube, having densely put a mouth cover.

3. Again take the probe from a mouth and determine the ATF level in a transmission case by the size of the moistened site of an edge (see an accompanying illustration). In case of need make the corresponding adjustment, having added to transmission through a funnel liquid of the demanded grade (fill in liquid directly in a mouth of the directing tube of the measuring probe).


4. Rise in the ATF level from the lower bound of working range of the probe to top requires about 1 l of liquid – the flood is made in the small portions in stages, every time checking level.
5. Along with level it is necessary to check as well a condition of ATF. If the liquid moistening the end of an edge of the probe has a dark red-brown shade, or smells as ashes, ATF should be replaced (see Check and adjustment of turns of idling (each 48 000 km of run or times in 24 months)). In case of absence of confidence in correctness of an assessment of a condition of transmission liquid compare it on color and a smell to the fresh.
