MOTORcheckUP is suitable for all 4-stroke engines, both diesel and petrol.
Using MOTORcheckUP step 1
Remove the cover sheet at the place marked.
Tip: Take care to keep the test field clean and dry.
Using MOTORcheckUP, step 2
Pull out the dipstick, or take the oil from the cap of the filling opening for motor oil. Sample just one drop of motor oil. The motor should be at operating temperature.
Tip: In contrast to measuring oil levels, you only need to extract the dipstick once.
Using MOTORcheckUP, step 3
Deposit only one drop on the test field.
Tip: The drops fall best when the stick is not touching the test field
Using MOTORcheckUP, step 4
Depending on the condition of the motor and the oil, the development time is usually between 1.5 and 8 hours. For best results, leave the test overnight so that the drop develops perfectly.
Tip: Carefully record the vehicle registration, mileage and running performance of the oil.
Using MOTORcheckUP, step 5
When the drop has developed, progress step by step, from the inside to the outside, for the evaluation. The completed result should be evaluated using the enclosed evaluation scale. Simply compare the colours and mark the result.
Tip: Use a magnifying glass. It will be even easier to identify small exhaust particles, for example.
