6.5. Addition of a protection frame from замерзаниядо–30 °C

For our widths it is quite enough to have protection from промерзания to–30 °С. On the basis of concentrate Ford it corresponds 50 %-s' mixes. If level of a cooling liquid is regulated from time to time by water addition concentration of means from freezing for cold temperatures it will be possible insufficiently. Check up a mix with the help ареометра, means from freezing. As Faust's rule fairly: approximately 3/4 litres of a cooling concentrate raise protection against a cold approximately on 10 °С. In case of doubts it is possible to check up structure of a cooling liquid at the dealer Ford.

 Attention: the original cooling liquid cannot be mixed with other products – after that corrosion protection and compatibility with easy metals are not guaranteed any more. In case of doubts it can lead to major repairs of yours Mondeo. If you all the same wish to add a liquid with a product of an unknown origin it is better to replace all cooling liquid.

Filling total amount – the mix relation (to–30 °С)

    Lower pressure in system by means of запорной covers of a broad tank. Be cautious at нагретом the engine: danger обваривания. Establish pure reception capacity under a radiator and open a collar of the bottom hose of a cooling liquid, disconnect a hose from a branch pipe or turn away the drain screw of a tank. That the cooling liquid flew down is better, turn on запорную a cover of a broad tank. Merge approximately 1–2 litres of a cooling liquid in reception capacity and close it. Mount the bottom hose, if necessary using a new fixing collar or the drain screw with a new sealing ring. Fill a compensatory tank in necessary volume of a cooling concentrate, then add residual volume with the merged cooling liquid. Do not forget to close a broad tank.

    Check: For check of the corresponding relation of a mix of a cooling liquid it is necessary to have ареометр (a density measuring instrument). This device works as with the measurement index, and – as is shown in drawing – with плунжером.


The engine loses cooling liquid

If during movement you Mondeo loses great volumes of a cooling liquid, at all do not add cold water: the hot engine can receive «a cold shock». As a last resort, the block of cylinders or a head of the block of cylinders of the engine can be broken off. The broken off engine ahead of schedule will be transformed to scrap iron, and the warped head of the block of cylinders any more does not condense cylinders: cooling means obviously follows, mixes up with engine oil, forming lubricant эмульсию. Allow Mondeo to be cooled thoroughly and pour only water. In each case of the reason of loss of a cooling liquid the expert should establish.
