2.8.4. Service of the cooling system



Do not allow hit of antifreeze on skin or on the painted body details. At hit of antifreeze on skin or eyes immediately wash out a large amount of cold water. Antifreeze is very poisonous that does it dangerous at hit in a gullet. Do not leave antifreeze in an open vessel or spilled on a floor in the form of pools. The children and animals attracted with a sweetish smell of antifreeze can drink or lick it. Concerning utilization of the fulfilled antifreeze consult in competent authorities. In many settlements there are collection points in which will take care of safe utilization of this liquid.

Periodically it is necessary to wash out the cooling system and to replace cooling liquid. It is necessary to prevent corrosion and scaling because of which efficiency of cooling decreases and wear of the engine amplifies. At service of the cooling system it is necessary to check and if necessary to replace all hoses and a stopper of a jellied mouth of a radiator.

Liquid draining

1. Put the car on the emergency brake and block wheels. If the engine hot, then wait several hours that the engine completely cooled down.
2. On the cold engine turn off a stopper of a jellied mouth of a radiator.
3. Almost on all cars for access to the drain crane of a radiator located in the lower part of a radiator it is required to uncover. Substitute under a drain opening of a radiator a vessel of suitable capacity for reception of the merged liquid.
4. Dress on the drain union a hose with an internal diameter of 9,5 mm for the direction of a stream of liquid in a vessel (on some cars such hose is provided by a design) then open the drain crane (for what it is possible to use flat-nose pliers).
5. After a drain of all liquid from a radiator rearrange vessels under a drain stopper of the block of cylinders. Turn off a stopper (it is specified by an arrow) and merge liquid from the block of cylinders.
6. While liquid flows down check a condition of hoses of a radiator, a heater and collars (if necessary see subsection 2.6.5).
7. Replace all damaged hoses and collars.

Washing of the cooling system

1. After draining of cooling liquid wash out a radiator flowing water, having inserted a garden hose until from the lower branch pipe clear water does not begin to flow. Washing with water will remove all deposits from a radiator, but will not clear the engine and pipelines of the cooling system of deposits of a rust and scum.
2. These deposits can be removed with chemical influence of a cleaner. Use a cleaner according to the instruction of the manufacturer. At strong pollution of a radiator, existence of mechanical damages and a leak, the radiator should be removed (see subsection 4.9) and to take to repare.
3. Disconnect a hose from a broad tank. Merge liquid from a tank and wash out it clear water then attach a hose.

Gas station of the cooling system

1. Turn and tighten a stopper on the block of cylinders, densely close the crane on a radiator.
2. Transfer a rychazhok of management of a heater to the extreme situation corresponding to completely open crane of a heater.
3. Slowly fill in the fresh cooling liquid consisting of water and antifreeze (in the ratio 50/50), before filling of a radiator. Add liquid in a tank so that level was above the lower tag.
4. Remove a stopper of a radiator and start the engine (in well ventilated room), warm up the engine until the thermostat opens (liquid will begin to circulate through a radiator and the top hose will become hot).
5. Stop the engine and let's cool down. Add liquid to bottom edge of a mouth of a radiator.
6. Squeeze the top hose to force out air, and if necessary add liquid. Put into place a radiator stopper.
7. Start the engine, warm up and check existence of dribbles.
