In the oil pan there is oil for engine oiling. It is located on the block-crankcase of the engine in the bottom of the engine block. Depending on the model in the oil pan of the car can be from 2 to 8 litres of oil. Use the oil dipstick to measure the filling level. To do this, stop the engine. When changing the oil you need to open the oil plug that is usually on the surface facing the roadbed. It is necessary to pour the total oil into the container for oil collection.
If the oil pan is full, the oil gets into the crankshaft. Because of this appears a problem as the oscillation causes the formation of small air bells that are present in the oil for a long time. These air bells reduce lubricating action of the oil. In the worst case the oil foams that greatly reduces its lubricating action. In any case do not pour too much oil into the oil pan. Do not pour oil above the maximum mark on the oil dipstick.
If the oil pan is damaged, the oil will flow out. To repair the pan it is necessary to dismantle it and to weld the hole up. But it is cheaper to install a new oil pan. It is necessary to check the oil pan before dismantling to reveal the cause of leak. Perhaps the reason is damaged oil drain plug.
