6.3. Check and доливка a cooling liquid

Constant check


    Check level of a cooling liquid in a broad tank only at the cold engine. The cooling system in this case is not under pressure and the liquid extends "normally". Even if level settles down below the bottom marks, it is not necessary to add a liquid as at нагретом the engine cooling means extends automatically. In a tank there should be enough place for such "superfluous" liquid. Thus, it is impossible to be deceived мнимо by prospective low level. For доливки open cautiously запорную a cover. At нагретом the engine the tank is under pressure. Therefore preliminary impose a cover round a thick rag.
    If it is precipitate to open a cover there is a danger обваривания – the cooling liquid a hot key beats from a tank. Add cooling liquid in a tank, level should not rise above the top label. Small volumes of a liquid can be added easy at нагретом the engine.

    Liquid replenishment: As liquid level in a compensatory tank should exceed a label “MIN” it is necessary to fill up a tank with preliminary mixed liquid. At opening of a tank pay attention to formation of vials and oil шлама is testifies more often to a defective lining of a head of the block of cylinders.
