4.4.5. Replacement of a cooling liquid
According to the manufacturer recommendation it is necessary to replace cooling liquid through 40 thousand in km of run or 4 years of operation (depending on that will come earlier).
It be required to you: a cooling liquid, a pure rag, capacity for a merged cooling liquid capacity not less than 10 l, пассатижи.
Apply cooling liquids on a basis этиленгликоля (antifreeze).
Replace cooling liquid only on the cold engine.
The cooling liquid is toxic, therefore be cautious at work with it.
At start-up of the engine the stopper of a broad tank should be closed. Wrap a tank stopper densely. The cooling system at the working engine is under pressure, therefore at poorly wrapped up stopper from under it the cooling liquid can begin to flow.
1. Establish the car on an equal horizontal platform.
2. Turn away a stopper of a broad tank.
3. Substitute capacity under the drain crane of a radiator of system of the cooling located in the bottom part of the left tank of a radiator, and, having turned away the crane, merge a liquid.
Antifreeze is mortally poisonous for all live. Not to pollute environment, merge it from a radiator through a funnel (for example, made of a plastic bottle for soda water).
4. For maintenance full plum of a liquid from system and the guaranteed removal of air from it at refuelling compress short moustaches of a collar of fastening of a hose of heating of throttle knot, shift a collar on a hose …
5. … also remove a hose from the union of throttle knot.
6. Wrap the drain crane.
7. Wash out cooling system for what establish into place a hose of a supply of a cooling liquid to throttle knot and slowly fill system with water through a broad tank to level пароотводной tubes.
8. Start up the engine and allow to it to work till the moment of inclusion of the electrofan.
9. Muffle the engine and merge water.
10. Wash out cooling system, pure water yet will not start to merge.
11. Again disconnect a hose from the union of throttle knot.
12. Fill system of cooling of the engine, filling in cooling liquid in a broad tank until it will not start to pour out from the union on throttle knot and from the removed hose. At the moment of the beginning вытекания liquids establish a hose into place and fix a collar.
13. Start up the engine and warm up it to working temperature (before fan inclusion). After that stop the engine, check up level of a cooling liquid and if necessary add it in a broad tank to a label MAX.
At engine work watch temperature of a cooling liquid under the index. If the arrow has reached a red zone, and the radiator fan has not joined, include a heater and check up, what air through it passes. If the heater submits the warmed-up air the fan and if submits cold air, most likely, is faulty, means, in system of cooling of the engine the air stopper was formed. For its removal muffle the engine, allow to it to cool down and turn away a stopper of a broad tank. Start up the engine, allow to it to work during 3–5 mines and wrap a tank stopper.
For the best filling of system without air stoppers periodically прожимайте hoses of a radiator a hand.
In some days of operation of the car after replacement of a cooling liquid check its level. If necessary fill level.
If through very short time colour of a fresh liquid became brown, means, you have filled in a fake in which the manufacturer "has forgotten" to add ингибиторы corrosion. Besides, one of fake signs is sharp full decolouration of a liquid. Dye of a qualitative cooling liquid very much racks and only darkens in due course. The liquid tinted by a linen blue becomes colourless. It is necessary to replace such "antifreeze" faster.
