PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Visually examine adjoining surfaces of the engine, laying and epiploons on existence of traces of leakage of cooling liquid or oil. Pay special attention to areas round connections of a cover of a head of the block of cylinders, heads of the block of cylinders, the oil filter and an oil case. Do not forget that through certain time through connections a small amount of oil can start to filter. It is normal. If you find serious leak, replace passing laying or an epiploon (see subsection 9.1.5 and subsection 9.2.5).
2. Also check reliability and a condition of all tubes and engine hoses, and also tubes and hoses of brake system and power supply system tubes. Check, that all clips and arms were on a place and were in a good condition. If clips are broken or are absent, hoses, tubes or wires will dangle and be used up about surrounding elements that can lead to more serious problems in the future.
3. Carefully check hoses of a radiator and oven hoses on all their length. Replace hoses which burst, were inflated or wore out. Cracks are better visible if to compress a hose. Pay close attention to shlangovy collars which hoses to elements of system of cooling fix. Collars can jam or puncture with Shlangovye hoses that will lead to leakage of cooling liquid. If twisting collars were used, it is recommended to replace them with standard coupling collars.
Prevention

It is possible to measure only a thickness of brake slips through an opening on a support of a forward brake quicker


4. Check all elements of system of cooling (hoses, connections etc.) on existence of leaks.
5. If system of cooling any of elements it is faulty, replace it or laying, being guided by the instructions provided in subsection 4.12.
6. Having lifted the car, examine a fuel tank and a jellied mouth of a fuel tank on existence of punctures, cracks or other damages. It is necessary to pay special attention to connection between a jellied mouth and a fuel tank. Sometimes the rubber tube of a jellied mouth or a connecting hose can proceed because of the weakened fixing collars or wear of rubber.
7. Carefully examine all rubber hoses and the metal tubes going from a fuel tank. Check reliability of connections and check, that there were no the worn-out hoses, the broken tubes or other damages. Pay special attention to ventilating tubes and hoses which often turn around round a jellied mouth and can be pressed or broken. Check a condition of tubes on all length to a forward part of the car. Replace the damaged sections if it is necessary. While the car is lifted, use a case to check also tubes and the hoses of brake system located under the bottom of a body.
8. In an impellent compartment check reliability of fastenings of all fuel, vacuum and brake hoses and connection of tubes, and also check, that hoses were not pressed, used up or damaged.
