3.3. An engine sink

In due course oil, a dust and проникшие insects unite in a motor compartment of yours Mondeo and form an unattractive mud film which covers not only the engine and other knots, but also a radiator. Thus, the engine sink is not only aesthetic, but is identical also a technical problem: the closed system of cooling can lead to engine "boiling" and by that to large damage. And besides: the come winter with rich road salt and other rubbish does not pass by a motor compartment and its interiors. Thus, take in a habit – begin spring cleaning with a thorough sink of the engine.

Corrosion acceleration – from hydrochloric crusts

Salt for посыпки roads is not only means for successful struggle against snow and ice on roads, but also with interiors of your car. Through cracks and mines salt deeply gets into a motor compartment and is besieged on a radiator, edges and body edges, and also in cable plaits, electric drives and штекерных sockets. Salt crusts connect a moisture and by that promote corrosion formation. An engine sink, naturally, it is necessary to make only there where sewage "is disinfected" by an oil separator. This procedure is better for spending or at automatic washing station, or on a washing place it is direct at factory or transfer the given work of a specialised workshop.

After an engine sink check up, whether all details and knots under a cowl (draught of a pedal of gas, draught of deenergizing of coupling, adjusting engines, the rotary lever and so forth) work in «a dry condition». Everywhere there, where on moving details the oil film "has disappeared", it is necessary after a sink by means of a manual butterdish or a small amount of lamellar greasing completely to restore it.


    The engine should be as it is possible more coldly – differently the engine cleaner can evaporate, without having had time to execute the mission. Stop work of the engine and switch off ignition. Protect sensitive details, such as ignition system, the generator and fuel system, rags or plastic bags. Otherwise there can be troubles in system of ignition or onboard the electrician. In the beginning undertake an inside of a cowl of a motor compartment. Wash out its considerable quantity of water, then work as a sponge and shampoo and again wash out. Do not forget about edges and double profiles, the dirt can always nest in them. Wash out a lattice of a radiator a considerable quantity of water from a direction «a motor compartment – outside». Preliminary remove the rests of insects by means of the means deleting fiber (for example, means for ware washing), and then wash out from a direction of a motor compartment. Attention: do not process a lattice of a radiator a rigid brush and water under a high pressure is can lead to deformations of segments of a radiator and by that to lower capacity of cooling. Carefully wash out "shower" all folds, holders and not protected places. Strongly polluted details of the engine and motor compartment wash out a cold cleaner. After small time of influence it is possible to wash off the dissolved dirt a strong stream of water. Motor compartment, the engine and all auxiliary units cautiously dry. On car washes or авторизированных washing stations it is possible to meet a network of giving of compressed air more often. Precisely also here it is possible to borrow and a pneumatic pistol.

    Gently to the purpose: direct a water stream of a high pressure under probably "stupid" corner to the big surfaces.


Surface hermetic sealing – a varnish for engine protection

Already after the given sink think of the following sink and consequently герметизируйте the engine – together with technical periphery – especially heat resisting protective motor varnish. Then with confidence it is possible to tell that the following mud film will stick less intensively, than just removed. In motor compartments where «plastic sarcophagi» for visual registration dominate, it is quite enough to use preserved an aerosol or tinned wax.
