You probably poured motor oil incorrectly, here it is: video
The most useful life hack 2018: how to pour liquid from the bottle?
Replacement of engine oil for the average car produces several times a year. Hardly anyone changes the oil themselves, today drivers prefer a little overpay and to use the services of a HUNDRED masters. Perhaps this is correct, less problems and hassle.
The remaining small percentage of motorists are independent of those who prefers to change the oil independently, are often faced with unexpected and unpleasant phenomenon. When all is done and only left in the motor to fill it with new oil, suddenly it is poured across the surface of the engine. The bottle makes a distinctive “Gluck” and splashes a viscous synthetic content somewhere in the hood space.
You are trying to rehabilitate, trying to reduce the intensity of Gulf lubricants in the engine, but again heard “Gluck” and the oil re-enters the MIM filler. It can continue long enough with the engine after such a Gulf may be in the oil a little less than full. It is unpleasant, it’s messy, it’s dangerous. You will have to spend time cleaning, and it is a pity spent oil because it’s cheap.
Fortunately, there are a few simple ways to avoid this problem, which you might not know. One stop, the second fits a specific container.
Method number one
It’s very simple: before filling the engine with oil, make sure you hold the container sideways. Here it is:
In this embodiment, the oil would not splash, and the stream will be smooth and hit your target.
Method number two
Suitable for such containers:
As you can see from this bottle, the upper beveled area, there lies the root of the difficulties. Be sure to hold the bottle in such a way that the bevel was during the fill at the bottom (not the top, when he’s at the top is a mistake).
In both cases, you will avoid splashing of the liquid for the reason that the air entering into the bottle during the Gulf oil will not accumulate in the top of the slope, periodically blocking the flow of fluid, leading to this unpleasant phenomenon, and will be in the tank, above the liquid. Here and so. Physics!
Sketchy about the issue
Observant motorists will have noticed that there is a third option of packaging, for which, in principle, no matter how you pour the oil. It is usually larger cans with handles. Yes, that’s right, they are made in such a way that from two convenient options to use (the upright with the filling hole from the bottom and horizontally) will not cause unpleasant consequences:
The explanation for this lies in the packaging design. Handle it is hollow, which does not allow air traffic to build up in the corner, blocking the current engine oil from the canister, and the stream will be smooth and predictable.
