3.2.3. Replacement of a cooling liquid
At opening of a cover of a broad tank on the hot engine be careful. Leaving steams can lead to strong burns. For this purpose close a cover of a broad tank a thick layer of a fabric and slowly unscrew a cover before occurrence of a hissing sound. After the hissing termination slowly unscrew and uncover a broad tank.
Establish under the engine the reception pallet for gathering of a cooling liquid.
Merge cooling liquid in a following order:
Fig. 3.80. Removal of a cover (1) broad tanks and a detachment of the bottom hose of a radiator (2)
- Disconnect the bottom hose of a radiator 2.
Place the used cooling liquid in special capacity for storage of a cooling liquid. Never pour out the used cooling liquid on the earth. Antifreeze (этиленгликоль) — strong poison. At antifreeze hit in the water drain or ground waters environment becomes soiled.
Connect the bottom hose of a radiator.
Remove a broad tank
and clear an internal surface of a tank of pollution.
Fill in pure water in a broad tank
before filling of system of cooling.
Start up the engine and warm up it before thermostat opening. You can be convinced that the thermostat is opened, when both hoses of a radiator will be hot to the touch.
Stop the engine and disconnect the bottom hose of a radiator for water plum.
Repeat these operations until merged water will not contain a rust.
Fill cooling system through a broad tank
with a solution этиленгликоля
and waters. Concentration of antifreeze should be at least 50 %, but no more than 60 % for operation in cold regions.
Never use antifreeze with the maintenance этиленгликоля more than 60 %, and water less than 40 % as the solution temperature raises.
Fill a broad tank
to a mark "MOVE" on an outer side of a broad tank.
Establish a cover of a broad tank.
