Wait, while the engine will cool down before the beginning a slitiya. Watch that cooling liquid with antifreeze did not get on skin or the painted surface of a body.

The reason of many characteristic engine failures is malfunction of system of cooling. On cars with automatic transmission the condition of system of cooling which cools also transmission liquid, essentially influences durability and non-failure operation of work of transmission.

1. The system of cooling is checked on the cold engine. Check system to a trip or not less than 3 hours later after an engine stop.
2. Turn a radiator stopper to the left against the stop. If hissing (that testifies to residual pressure in cooling system) is heard, a stopper do not get before complete dumping of pressure. Now press a stopper a palm, tighten to the left and get a stopper. Carefully wash out a stopper pure water, wipe a radiator mouth pure rags. Remove all traces of corrosion. Cooling liquid in a radiator should be transparent. If cooling liquid is painted in color of a rust, system it is necessary to wash out and replace liquid. If level of cooling liquid is lower than edge of a jellied mouth, add a water and antifreeze mix.
3. Check a condition of the top and bottom hoses of a radiator and hoses of a heater which conduct from the engine to a wall of a motor compartment. Examine hoses on all length, at detection of swelling of hoses, cracks and the general deterioration of a condition a hose replace. Cracks are easily found if a hose to press. Irrespective of a condition of hoses it is recommended to change them each two years.
4. Be convinced of durability of all connections. Leakage of cooling liquid can be found on a raid of white or brown color near a place of violation of tightness. If hoses are fixed by wire collars, it is necessary to replace the last with collars with screw fastening.
5. With the compressed air or a brush remove from intercostal spaces of a radiator and the conditioner condenser the remains of insects, plants and extraneous subjects, thus do not injure a radiator or condenser edge. Be careful, as edges have sharp edges.
6. At the subsequent check or in case of abnormal work of system of cooling check a condition of a stopper of a radiator and pressure in system. In the absence of a manometer it is necessary to address in car-care center service where this service will render for the minimum payment.
7. Remove a cap of a broad tank.
8. Remove a protective guard from below the engine if it is necessary, and establish the container for collecting cooling liquid.
9. Turn off a drain cap (shooter) and merge cooling liquid.
10. Establish a cap into place.

Washing of system of cooling

If the system of cooling got littered, it is necessary for washing out.

Radiator washing

1. Disconnect all hoses from a radiator.
2. Insert a water hose into the top branch pipe of a radiator and wash out it pure water or clearing solution.

Engine washing

1. Remove the thermostat and temporarily establish a thermostat cover into place. Connect the top hose of a radiator.
2. Insert a water hose into the top hose of a radiator and wash out the engine pure water.

The gulf of cooling liquid

1. Check a condition of all a hose and collars of system of cooling.
2. Remove a cap of a broad tank and slowly fill in cooling liquid to a mark of KALT/COLD in a tank.
3. Twirl a tank cap.
4. Start the engine and warm up it to normal working temperature.
5. Muffle the engine, wait, while it will cool down, and check level of cooling liquid.

Cooling liquid with the content of antifreeze

Regularly replace cooling liquid with the content of antifreeze as over time antifreeze loses the anticorrosive qualities.
