Check of level of a cooling liquid

In avoidance ошпаривания, do not uncover at all a broad tank before full cooling of the engine. Do not leave without supervision the open container filled with a toxic cooling liquid.


1. Necessity for regular addition of a cooling liquid for systems of tight type is absent. If to add a liquid it is necessary too often, components of system of cooling should be checked up on presence 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, without dependence from a climatic season, all year long refuelled exclusively a mix of correct structure. Remember that excessive разжижение antifreeze results not only in increase of a freezing point of a mix, but also reduces its anticorrosive properties.

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

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

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