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



1. Examine outside interfaced surfaces of the power unit, paying attention to traces of leaks of oil and a cooling liquid. It is necessary to give special attention to joints прокладочных surfaces of a cover of a camshaft, a head of cylinders, the oil filter and the pallet картера. There are no bases to worry concerning presence of lungs потеков which occurrence is quite natural eventually. Should guard only traces of really serious leaks at which revealing it is necessary to make replacement of a corresponding lining/epiploon (see more low in the corresponding Chapter).
2. In parallel check up 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 тросовыми bandages, collars and intermediate clamps. In order to avoid wiping of lines replace the broken clamps new.
3. Attentively examine радиаторные hoses and hoses of system of heating of salon on all their length. At revealing of cracks, swellings or traces of ageing of a material make replacement of a defective hose.

Cracks come to light at перегибании a hose is easier. Carefully check up 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. The failed collars of braided type will replace most correctly more practical screw or worm.

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

Remember that leaks of a cooling liquid usually represent порошкообразный a touch of white or reddish colour.

5. In case of need replace a defective component or the damaged lining (see the Head of System of cooling, heating).
6. At a corresponding complete set check up also a condition of hoses of a path of cooling ATF.
7. Having raised the car over the earth, check up 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 presence of cracks, punctures, traces of ageing of rubber and other defects. Sometimes leaks start to develop as a result of weakening of fixing collars.
8. Attentively check up a condition of all rubber and metal fuel lines connecting a petrol tank with the engine. Pay attention to dents, flattening, перекручивания and other etc. 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 up a condition passing under the bottom of the car of lines of a hydraulic path.
9. In an impellent compartment check up reliability штуцерных connections of fuel, vacuum and brake lines. Estimate a condition of all hoses.
