PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. On the engine established in a motor compartment of the car, check levels of engine oil and cooling liquid. Check that all earlier removed wires and hoses are established on the places.
2. On cars with petrol engines disconnect the electric socket from the block of ignition and remove the relay of the fuel pump. Turn the engine a starter until the control lamp of pressure of oil will not go out, then connect the electric socket to the block of ignition and establish the relay of the fuel pump.
3. On cars with diesel engines include ignition and immediately turn a cranked shaft of the engine a starter (that glow plugs did not manage to get warm) while the control lamp of pressure of oil will not go out.
4. Start the engine. Start of the engine can be more long, than usually because of shutdown of fuel system.
5. At operation of the engine idling check existence of leakages of the fuel, cooling liquid and oil. At this stage of operation of the engine the smell and a smoke from warm parts of the engine can be observed at burning out of the oil which has got on the engine at assembly.
6. The engine should idle until cooling liquid will not heat up that will be felt through the top hose of a radiator. Then switch off the engine.
7. After cooling of the engine check level of oil and cooling liquid.
8. At installation in the engine of new pistons, piston rings or bearings of a cranked shaft it is necessary to make the engine during run of the first 800 km. Do not maintain the engine with completely open butterfly valve or under big loading at low frequency of rotation of the engine. It is recommended to replace oil and the oil filter at the end of the running in period.
