Check of level of cooling liquid

In order to avoid a scalding, do not uncover a broad tank before full cooling of the engine at all. Do not leave unguarded the open container filled with toxic cooling liquid.


1. Need for regular addition of cooling liquid for systems of tight type is absent. If it is necessary to add liquid too often, components of the cooling system should be checked for existence 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, regardless of a climatic season, all the year round refueled only mix of the correct structure. Remember that excessive fluidifying of antifreeze leads not only to increase in a freezing point of mix, but also reduces its anticorrosive properties.

3. Level of cooling liquid constantly changes together with change of temperature of the engine. At the cold engine the level of liquid has to be between two marks in a translucent wall of a broad tank. With an engine warming up the level of liquid will increase due to its thermal expansion, gradually approaching the top mark (MOVE). At full warming up of the engine the level of liquid can rise slightly above the top mark.

4. In need of performance of adjustment of level of cooling liquid wait for full cooling of the engine. Slowly turn off a cover of a jellied mouth of a broad tank counterclockwise to the first emphasis and dump residual pressure in system. When emission of steam stops, finally uncover.

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