1. To merge a liquid follows on the cold engine.
2. Unscrew a stopper of a broad tank, having turned it counter-clockwise.
3. Substitute a vessel under the bottom hose of a radiator, disconnect a hose (it is specified by an arrow) and merge a liquid.
4. In the block of cylinders of a separate stopper it is not provided, therefore the liquid completely does not leave.

Before refuelling the system should be washed out.

Washing of system of cooling

1. Remove the thermostat. Put into place the case of the thermostat and put on a hose.
2. Insert промывочный a hose into the bottom disconnected hose of a radiator and fill system with pure water while water not begins to follow from a radiator mouth. Continue to wash out during 10–15 mines, pure water yet will not start to follow.
3. If the system is strongly polluted, wash out it in the opposite direction, having inserted промывочный a hose into the bottom branch pipe of a radiator. If there are doubts in cleanliness of a radiator it should be removed and washed out, simultaneously stirring up. Then in addition wash out system a stream of water before installation of the thermostat and joining of hoses.
4. In extreme cases application of special additives for clearing of considerable adjournment of a scum is supposed, thus be guided by the instruction of the manufacturer.
5. If the liquid varied regularly necessity of washing, as a rule, disappears.


1. Check up a condition of all hoses and connections. Attach the bottom hose.
2. Fill in a liquid through a broad tank. At first the concentrated antifreeze in the necessary quantity, and then – water is filled in.
3. At refuelling periodically squeeze the big hoses not to admit formation of air stoppers.
4. On большей parts of cars are provided the small ventilating hoses connected to a broad tank. If these hoses are absent, turn away the ventilating union (it is specified by an arrow) on a knee of the thermostat and when through it the liquid will start to follow, wrap the union.
5. After filling, warm up the engine, stop and on the cold engine again check up liquid level. If necessary add.
6. Check up reliability of fastenings of hoses after refuelling and after some hundreds kilometres of run.


Antifreeze represents a mix of the distilled water with a concentrate этиленгликоля. Antifreeze provides protection of system of cooling against corrosion and increases a boiling point of a cooling liquid. The quantity этиленгликоля in antifreeze depends on weather service conditions of the car and makes from 40 to 70 %.
