after the mileage of approx. 5,000 KM. More engine oil might be consumed under the high-load of
engine.
Stop your vehicle on a level surface before the engine oil check. Turn off the ignition switch and
wait for a few minutes to let the engine oil flows into the oil pan (it may spend more time if the
exterior temperature is low or the temperature of engine does not reach the normal working
temperature). Before the engine oil check, please DO NOT start up the engine in the cold state. Pull
out the dipstick and clean it with a flannelette-free cloth, and then fully insert the dipstick into the
tank and pull it out again.
If the oil level is between MIN and MAX marks at the lower of dipstick, DO NOT refill the oil. The
hot engine oil may exceed the upper mark several millimeters due to its thermal expansion.
7.2. Method to replace the engine oil
In case that the engine oil is replaced, it is necessary to wait until the engine cools down to the
normal temperature, and then replace the engine oil according to the following procedures:
Ø Stop the vehicle over a jack, and then unscrew the filler cap (the cap is shown in the figure
below);
Ø Lift the vehicle up to an appropriate height, unscrew the drain plug with a torque wrench,
and flow the used engine oil into a container at the same time.;
Ø Then, tighten the drain plug with the torque wrench to the specified torque (25±3Nm);
Ø Jack down the vehicle, and then refill proper quantity of new engine oil according to the
specifications;
Ø Screw up the filler cap.
The oil refilled shall not
exceed the upper limit.
Note: Please refill the engine oil conforming to the CHERY’s specifications only to the level
between MIN and MAX marks.
8. Transmission Oil Check
8.1. Oil level check
Shut down the engine and wait for several minutes, and then lift up the vehicle with a jack, unsrew
the oil limiting plug with a torque wrench, and check the transmission oil level. If the distance
between the oil level and filler opening is large, please appropriately refill the transmission oil (until
the oil level increases up to the filler opening), and then tighten the oil limiting plug with a torque
wrench to the specified torque. (The tightening torque of 44Nm for QR513MHA, and tightening
torque of 30Nm for QR512.)
Oil Limiting Plug
Drain Plug
8.2. Method to replace the transmission oil
Shut down the engine and wait for several minutes, and then lift up the vehicle with a jack, unsrew
the refiller plug with a torque wrench, and then carefully unscrew the drain plug and collect the used
transmission oil with a container. In case that the used transmission oil nearly drains away, tighten
the drain plug with a torque wrenchto the specified torque; and then refill the transmission oil
specified by the CHERY Company (until the oil level increases up to the filler opening according to
the specified quantity). Then tighten the refiller plug with a torque wrench to the specified torque.
9. Trouble Diagnosis of Electronic Control System
Please utilize the CHERY Company’s special diagnostic testers X431 and K81/K61 to diagnose the
electronic control system, and the updated version of program of the diagnostic testers is also
required at the same time.
10. Lubrication and Maintenance of All Hinges and Door Locks
All the hinges and door locks are the maintenance-free products. Please make certain that the bush
of any hinge is in good condition. If damaged, replace it in time.
11. Wiper System Check
11.1. Wiper blade check and maintenance
Check wiper blade
Slide the tip of your finger on the edge of a wiper blade to check the roughness of the blade. The
butter, silicone resin and fuel may enable the wiper blade not to normally work. It is recommended
that the glass cleaning fluid is applied to clean the wiper blade.
Replace the wiper blade
Lift the wiper arm and make it perpendicular to the wiper blade. To remove the wiper blade, press
down the retaining clip according to the arrow as shown in the figure, loosen the wiper blade and
then pull out the wiper arm in the reverse direction.
11.2. Nozzle check and adjustment
Keep the nozzle clean. If the spraying angle is improper, please insert the needle-like article into the
nozzle to adjust the spraying angle. If the spraying angle can’t be adjusted to its proper position,
adjust it again.
12. Coolant Check
QQ6 engine has a main radiator and an auxiliary radiator.
Check whether the auxiliary radiator’s coolant level is between the MAX and MIN marks. If below
the MIN mark, please refill the coolant.
CAUTION: Please DO NOT refill the coolant when the engine is in hot state. Please refill the
coolant after the engine cools down.
When refilling the coolant, pay attention to the following methods:
Method to refill the coolant at the filler cap: In case of the engine’s cold state and standstill, turn
the filler cap in the clockwise direction and apply the pressure on the cap to open it, and then refill
the coolant until it can be seen viewing from the filler opening. Tighten the filler cap in the
anticlockwise direction, start up the engine and let it operate at the idle speed for about 1 minute,
and then shut down the engine. Open the filler cap and continuously refill the coolant until it can be
visiable viewing from the filler opening.In case that the engine’s water temperature is high or in
case of each maintenance, note that the coolant is refilled in time from the filler cap.
Method to refill the coolant into an auxiliary radiator: In case of the engine’s cold state and
standstill, pull upwards and open the auxiliary radiator filler cap. The capacity of coolant refilled
must exceed the MIN mark and below the MAN mark. Regularly observe the capacity of coolant in
the auxiliary radiator. Refill the coolant in time if below the MIN mark. The coolant level can be
checked through the semi-transparent auxiliary radiator. When the engine is in the cold state, the
coolant level shall be between the MIN and MAX marks.
If it is necessary to refill the coolant when the engine is hot, wait for 10 minutes first to cool the
engine. Loosen the filler cap one quarter turn to release the pressure. Wait for a period of time, and
then fully open the cap to refill the coolant which conforms to the specifications of this vehicle.
Using the coolant with the proper concentration can’t only protect the engine free from be frozen in
winter, but also provide the corrossion protection all the year around. Now, the engine can operate
under very high temperature but the bad coolant can’t provide the cooling system the proper
corrosion protection. So, please use the coolant conforming to the CHERY’s specifications. DO
NOT substitute the coolant with the main water.
If refilling the antifreeze fluid into the vehicles in the cold region, please select the antifreeze fluid
which has proper antifreezing capacity.
Antifreeze fluid testing tool: T10007 refractometer
Directions for use of T10007 refractometer 明:
Refer to the user’s manual, properly dip the T10007 refractometer into the antifreeze fluid and
directly read out the temperature of antifreeze, and then refill the proper antifreeze fluid according
to the antifreezing temperature required.

13. Check and Maintenance of Windscreen Cleaning Fluid
The windscreen cleaning fluid is a kind of consumptive fluid. Please regularly check the fluide
(every two weeks or one month). If shortage, please refill the fluid (up to approx. 10 cm away from
the opening). If ncessary, refill the clean water and windscreen cleaning fluid according to the
concentration of (1: 20). Please close the cover of reservoir after refilling.
14. Tire Check
14.1. Pattern depth check

15. Timing Belt Check
Check its wear and tension of the timing belt, and regulate or replace it if necessary. The tension
requirement after the timing belt is regulated: In the intermediate position of two wheels at the
timing belt pulled side, when the timing belt is pressed down approx. 5 mm by hand, the force
required is: 19.6 - 29.4 N (2.0 - 3.0 kg), and its schematic diagram is shown below;
16. Check and Maintenance of Engine Accessaries’ Belts
Wedge belt: Check its tension, and regulate or replace it if necessar. Refer to the “Timing belt” for
the requirement on tension after regulating;
17. Check and Adjustment of Clutch
Check whether the travel of clutch pedal is proper. If not, regulate the clutch control cable under the
transmission to adjust the travel of pedal. The regulating position is shown in the figure below:
Regulate this nut
The regulating method.: The clutch control cable regulating nut is a lock nut. In case of
regulating, push outwards the control cable to make the regulating nut have a proper clearance away
from the clutch separation arm. In this case, the travel of clutch can be adjusted only. Turn the nut in
the clockwise direction to reduce the free travel; and turn the nut in the anticlockwise direction to
increase the free travel.

23. Check and Maintenance of A/C System
In case of the maintenance of the vehicle A/C system, the following procedures shall be conducted:
first, listen; second, look; third, touch; and fourth, check. Its specific content is:
First, listen:
Determine the operating condition of compressor according to the sound from the compressor. For
the normal operating, only the even valve plate motion sound from the compressor can be heard. If
the slap sound can be heard, it is generally the fluid slugging sound or hammering of the coolant. If
a serious friction sound is emitted from the machine body and the clutch sometimes gives out the
friction sound and is heated, it is caused due to the excessive load of compressor, shortage of
lubrication oil or oil-break, and the slippage of the clutc. If there is a slap sound in the exterior of the
vehicle, it is caused due to either the belt loose, or the serious wear.
If the continuous impact sounds of the motion parts in the machine body can be clearly heard during
the shutdown of the machine, it is caused due to the serious wear of interior motion parts, which
results that the clearance between the shaft and bearing, piston and cylinder body, and connecting
rod and shaft is large or loose.
Second, look:
Check the cleanness of surface of the condenser first, avoid that the foreign materials and mud
acttach to the condenser, which may make an influence on the cooling effect. In general, regularly
rinse the condenser with water. CAUTION: When the condenser is rinsing, DO NOT touch the fins
to deform them. For the deformed fins, carefully correct them with a long nosed pliers.
At the air inlet of vehicle air conditioner’s evaporator, some air filters are generally installed.
Regularly check the evaporator every week, clear the foreign materials, and clean the mud from the
evaporator surface with the high-pressed air so as to avoid that the heat transfer coefficient falls
down and the A/C air is contaminated. The contents checked regularly are:
Ø Check whether there are some oil stains in all connecting sections of the A/C cooling system. If
there are some oil stains, it indicates that the leakage may occurs here. Immediately remove the
trouble A.S.A.P. For the cooling sytem, the leakage position(s) must be mainly inspected. The
mainly-inpsected positions also include: compressor shaft seal, front and rear cover plate
gasket, safety valve and etc.
Ø Check the wear, ageing, blister, crack and leaky oil stains of all hoses. Since the vehicle’s
cooling and heating systems adopt a lot of rubber hoses, these hoses may be worn due to
contact with the vehicle body during the vehicle is traveling and vibrating. The brake hoses in
the engine compartment are subject to the high temperature ageing, and easily have alligatoring
symptom, which may result that the brake fluid and coolant drain out but the moisture, air and
dust enter into the hoses to damage the compressor and all parts. So, it is very important to
regularly check these rubber hoses. If it is found that the rubber hose contact the engine,
separate the rubber hose from the engine in time, and reliably secure the rubber hose. The
rubber hose goes across the metal plate, in general, with a protective sleeve. Otherwise the
metal may cut the rubber hose.
Third, touch:
Touch the pipes and all parts of the A/C system which is working, and determine its temperature. In
the normal condition, the temperature of pipes at the high pressure end shall be 55℃ - 65℃ while
the low pressure pipes are in the low temperature state and there are some water dews on the parts,
pipes and joints at the low pressure end. Touch the high pressure area, especially the metal parts at
the high pressure end, such as compressor’s exhaust pipe, condenser, stock fluid dryer and etc, and
find these sections are hot. Be care! If you touch these positions and find that your hand is hot but
doesn’t feel burning, it is normal; and if your hand feels hurning, check whether the condenser is in
the good cooling conditio, the surface of condenser is clean without foreign materials, and etc.
If your hand feels that the temperature is not high at the high pressure end, it indicates that the
coolant level is low; and if there is no temperature which can be felt by your hand, it indicates that
the coolant fully leaks.
If the frosting symptom or water dews can be found on the fluid reservoir, it indicates that the
dessicant is broken and blocks the pipe from which the coolant flows and the temperature of high
pressure area at the front end of this reservoir is very high. In this case, solve the clogging problem
A.S.A.P, replace it with a new dryer and clean the system at the same time.
The temperature of the expansion valve is special when you feel it by hand: its coolant inlet joint is
hot while its outlet joint is cold, with some water dews. If the frosting symptom is found at the
outlet of the expansion valve, it indicates that the expansion valve port is clogged. It may be caused
due to either the foreign materials or the ice generated by the moisture which enters into the cooling
system. The trouble must be handled immediately: either clean the system, replace it with a new
dryer and expansion valve, or revacuumize it and remove the moisture.
Touch the low-pressure reservoir and find your hand feels cold, with water dews but without
frosting symptom. If there is the frosting symptom, it indicates that the system has trouble. Find out
the reason. Touch the intake and exhaust pipes of the compressor, and find that the temperature your
hand feels shall be considerably different. If not, it indicates that the coolant has fully leaked; and if
the difference is not big, it indicates that the coolant level is low.
IMPORTANT: When the A/C system is touched by hand, absolutely pay more attention to the
safety, and avoid the injured by the belt and other motion parts.
Fourth, check:
1. Check the tensile force of belt first. The tensile force of new and old belts is different. Even if it is
a new belt, its tensile force may also change considerably after the use of 5 minutes. As a
newly-installed belt, it must be regulated twice: After the first installation of the belt, its tensile
force must be regulated to the specified value; and after it operates for 30 minutes, it must be
regulated for the second time.
2. Check the magnetic clutch
3. Check the A/C blower
4. Check the high/low pressure switch and overheat protector
5. Check the heating system
6. Check the expansion valve
With the check above-metioned, make certain that the A/C system is in good working condition.
24. Check and Replacement of Three Filters
The three filters means the air cleaner, oil cleaner, and gasoline filter. These three filters are checked
and replaced as follows:
Air cleaner
Remove two screws as shown in the figure below with a cross screwdriver, take off the element of
air cleaner and then replace the element, and then reinstall the air cleaner after the replacement of
the element.
Engine oil filter
Fully drain out the engine oil, and then remove and replace the filter with a special oil filter spanner.
To ensure the sealing effect, it is best to appropriately apply a little of engine oil on the screwed end
of the new oil filter, and then reinstall it.
Fuel filter
Remove the bolts as shown in the figure below, take off the clamp from the gasoline filter, and then
remove the oil pipe joints from the both extremes, install a new gasoline filter in the reverse order.
