Removal in the Engine Lubrication System chapter).
Check the oil screens [A] carefully for any damage, holes,
and broken wires.
If the screen is damaged, replace it.
Clean the screen of the oil strainers with a high flash-point
solvent and remove any particles stuck to them.
While cleaning the screens, check for any metal parti-
cles that might indicate internal engine damage.
Gasoline and low flash-point solvents can be
flammable and/or explosive and cause severe
burns. Clean the screen in a well-ventilated area,

appliance with a pilot light. Do not use gasoline or
a low flash-point solvent to clean the screen.
