2.11. Check of system of cooling

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

The cooling system is checked on the cold engine. Check system to a trip, or after not less than 3 hours after an engine stop.

1. Turn a radiator stopper to the left against the stop. If hissing (that testifies to residual pressure) a stopper do not get before full dump of pressure is heard. Now press a stopper a palm, tighten to the left and get a stopper. Carefully wash out a stopper pure water, wipe a mouth of a radiator pure rags. Remove all traces of corrosion. The cooling liquid in a radiator should be transparent. If the cooling liquid is painted in colour of a rust system it is necessary to wash out and replace a liquid. If level of a cooling liquid below edge of a jellied mouth add a water and antifreeze mix (see subsection 2.5.2).
2. Check up a condition of the top and bottom hoses of a radiator and heater hoses. 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 out if a hose to press. Irrespective of a condition of their hoses it is recommended to change each two years.
3. Be convinced of durability of all connections. Leak of a cooling liquid can be found out on a touch of white or brown colour near to a place of infringement of tightness. If hoses are fixed by wire collars it is necessary to replace the last with collars with screw fastening.
4. Compressed air or a brush remove from intercostal spaces of a radiator and the condenser of the conditioner the rests of insects, plants and extraneous subjects, thus do not damage a radiator or condenser edge. Be careful, as edges have sharp edges.
