Check of level of cooling liquid

In order to avoid an oshparivaniye, do not uncover at all a broad tank before complete cooling of the engine. Do not leave without supervision the open container filled with toxic cooling liquid.


1. Need for regular addition of cooling liquid for systems of tight type is absent. If to add liquid it is necessary too often, components of system of cooling should be checked on existence of signs of leaks. Attentively examine a radiator and joints of all components. Eliminate the revealed defects.

2. It is important to watch that the cooling system, regardless of a climatic season, all the year round refueled only a mix of the correct structure. Remember that the excessive razzhizheniye of antifreeze leads not only to increase of a freezing point of a mix, but also reduces its anticorrosive properties.

3. Level of cooling liquid constantly changes together with change of temperature of the engine. At the cold engine level of liquid should be between two marks in a translucent wall of a broad tank. With an engine warming up level of liquid will raise at the expense of its thermal expansion, gradually coming nearer to the top mark (MOVE). At complete warming up of the engine level of liquid can rise slightly above the top mark.

4. In need of performance of correction of level of cooling liquid wait complete cooling of the engine. Slowly unscrew a cover of a jellied mouth of a broad tank counter-clockwise to the first emphasis and dump residual pressure in system. When emission of steam will stop, finally uncover.

5. Add in a broad tank of demanded structure an antifreeze mix with water, having lifted liquid level to the middle of the site located between two marks. Establish a cover on a place and densely tighten it.
