2.1.4.4. Hoses and connections

Check on existence of leaks

COOLING SYSTEM

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Check radiator and oven hoses on all length. Replace worn-out hoses. Check reliability of collars and a condition of hoses under them.
2. Examine all elements of system of cooling on existence of leaks. Deposits of white or rusty color testify to leak existence in system of cooling in the field of leak. Replace the corresponding elements or laying if it is necessary.

POWER SUPPLY SYSTEM

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Lift the car and examine a fuel tank and a hose of a jellied mouth on existence of punctures, cracks and other damages. Check reliability of connections.
2. Check all rubber hoses and the metal tubes going from a fuel tank. Check reliability of connections and fastenings.

ENGINE OIL

PERFORMANCE ORDER
Examine area round a cover of the klapanny mechanism, a head of the block of cylinders, the oil filter and an oil case on leak existence. Replace the corresponding laying or consolidations.

LIQUID OF THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

PERFORMANCE ORDER
Examine hoses of cooling liquid of an automatic transmission on existence of damages or leaks.

SYSTEM OF THE HYDRAULIC BOOSTER OF THE STEERING

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Check a condition of the hoses connecting a tank of hydraulic liquid, the pump and the steering mechanism.
2. Check reliability of connections and an inhaling of collars.

CENTRAL AIR COOLANT

PERFORMANCE ORDER
Central air is filled with a liquid coolant under pressure. At leak detection from central air immediately address to experts.

BRAKE LIQUID

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Examine area round connections of brake tubes on the main brake cylinder and the basis of a tank of brake liquid on leak existence. Check connections of tubes on the ABS hydraulic module.
2. Check supports of brakes and brake tubes under the car bottom.

OIL OF THE MECHANICAL TRANSMISSION

PERFORMANCE ORDER
Examine area round a driveshaft epiploon behind a transmission on existence of traces of leak. Check level of oil and replace an epiploon if it is necessary.

LIQUID OF THE MAIN TRANSFER

PERFORMANCE ORDER
Examine area round consolidations and epiploons of the driveshaft and semi-axes on leak existence. Check level of oil and replace epiploons if it is necessary.

Definition of a source of leak and liquid type

If at once it is difficult to define a source of leak and liquid type, leave the car for the night and put a piece of a pure cardboard under an expected place of leak. Next morning even small leak will be appreciable.

VACUUM HOSES

Under the influence of high temperatures in a motor compartment gradually there is a hardening and destruction of the rubber and plastic hoses which are ensuring functioning of various units of the engine and system of decrease in toxicity of exhaust gases. It is necessary to check periodically a condition of hoses, existence on them of cracks and hardening, weakening of connections, tightness violation.

Part of hoses fasten by means of collars. Check durability of an inhaling of collars as weakening of fastening leads to tightness violation. In those places in which collars are not provided, check reliability of consolidation of a hose on unions, elasticity loss in such connections owing to swelling or hardening of hoses is not allowed, tightness of connection otherwise is broken.

Vacuum hoses can be distinguished on color or on the color strips pasted on them. For various systems of the engine vacuum hoses with various in the thickness of walls, resistance to compression by atmospheric pressure and thermal stability are used. At replacement track that new vacuum hoses in accuracy corresponded to the replaced.

Often the hose can be checked only after removal from the car. If some hoses act in film, previously put labels on interfaced the union and hoses subsequently not to break their relative positioning.

At check of a condition of vacuum hoses at the same time examine also plastic tees. Check existence on them of cracks, and also hose deformations in a prileganiye place to the union of a tee which can cause tightness violation.

For check of leaks on a characteristic sound it is possible to use a piece of a vacuum hose with internal diameter about 6,0 mm. Having put the hose end to a checked place, listen through an opposite opening in a hose. Characteristic "hissing" will indicate leak existence.

FUEL HOSES

Check a condition of rubber fuel hoses, existence on them of wear tracks or appearance deterioration. Especially attentively check hoses in places of excesses and near connections, for example, in a junction with the fuel filter.

At replacement of the fuel highway on injector engines the new highway should correspond in accuracy applied in fuel system of engines of this type.

For fastening of hoses of the fuel highway spring collars which lose over time elasticity are usually used. When dismantling connection such collar is necessary for unbending, then elasticity is lost finally. At replacement of hoses always replace spring collars with collars with fastening by the screw.

METAL TUBES

Metal tubes are usually used in the fuel highway for connection of the fuel pump with a regulator of pressure of fuel on a comb of nozzles. Check existence on tubes of the sdeformirovanny (braided) sites and small arising cracks.

At replacement it is necessary to establish only seamless steel tubes. Tubes from copper or aluminum do not approach, as do not maintain vibrating loadings from the engine.

Check a condition of metal tubes and unions of system of a hydraulic actuator of brakes in a junction with the main brake cylinder and the batcher (if it is provided), existence of cracks and the weakened connections is not allowed. At detection of any signs of leakage of brake liquid immediately carefully check all contour of system of a hydraulic actuator of brakes.
