Check of a condition of hoses, and identification of sources of leaks



1. Examine outside interfaced surfaces of the power unit, paying attention to traces of leakages of oil and cooling liquid. It is necessary to give special attention to joints of prokladochny surfaces of a cover of a camshaft, a head of cylinders, the oil filter and the case pallet. There are no bases to worry concerning existence of lungs потеков which emergence is quite natural eventually. Should guard only traces of really serious leaks at which identification it is necessary to make replacement corresponding a laying/epiploon (see below in the corresponding Chapter).
2. In parallel check a condition and reliability of fastening on the unions of all hoses and the metal tubes concerning functioning of the engine. Track reliability of fastening of lines hummock bandages, collars and intermediate clamps. In order to avoid wiping of lines replace the broken clamps new.
3. Attentively examine radiatorny hoses and hoses of system of heating of salon on all their length. At identification of cracks, swellings or traces of aging of a material make replacement of a defective hose.

Cracks come to light at a hose peregibaniye easier. Carefully check a condition of collars of fastening of hoses on connecting branch pipes of components of system of cooling. Do not forget that often hoses fray and wear out in installation sites of collars. It will be most correct to replace the failed collars of braided type more practical screw or worm.

4. Attentively examine on existence of traces of leaks all components of system of cooling (the hoses, interfaced surfaces, etc.).

Remember that leakages of cooling liquid usually represent a poroshkoobrazny raid of white or reddish color.

5. In case of need replace a defective component or the damaged laying (see. Head of System of cooling, heating).
6. At the corresponding complete set check also a condition of hoses of a path of cooling of ATF.
7. Having raised the car over the earth, check a condition of a jellied mouth of a fuel tank. The site of a joint of a mouth with the tank case is especially critical. Pay attention to existence of cracks, punctures, traces of aging of rubber and other defects. Sometimes leaks start to develop as a result of weakening of fixing collars.
8. Attentively check a condition of all rubber and metal fuel lines connecting a fuel tank to the engine. Pay attention to dents, flattening, a perekruchivaniye and other other defects. Make sure that ventilating hoses and tubes are not overwound round a jellied mouth of a tank. Make necessary corrections, replace defective sections. Do not forget to check a condition passing under the bottom of the car of lines of a hydraulic path.
9. In an impellent compartment check reliability of shtutserny connections of fuel, vacuum and brake lines. Estimate a condition of all hoses.
