Check of level of cooling liquid

At least, once a week when the engine is switched off also cold, it is necessary to check the level of cooling liquid in a broad tank (2, see rice. A motor compartment of the car with the petrol engine).

The broad tank is located on the right side of a motor compartment. The level of cooling liquid seen through transparent walls of a tank has to be at height of the sign "max". In case of need it is necessary to fill amount of cooling liquid after unscrewing of a stopper in a broad tank.


In case the engine hot, the cooling system is under pressure. Therefore at first it is necessary to unscrew a little a stopper, to wait so far pressure in a broad tank will not be leveled with atmospheric, and then to unscrew a stopper completely.

Control bulb of the minimum level of cooling liquid

In some versions of equipment in a middle part of the forward panel, under average nozzles of system of ventilation, the control bulb which lights up if the level of cooling liquid falls below minimum is located. It is necessary to fill immediately amount of cooling liquid, being guided by the above-stated instructions.

Check of a state and tightness of connections of pipelines

Each 10 000 km of a run of the car it is necessary to check visually a state and tightness of connections of pipelines of the cooling system.

Replacement of cooling liquid

Each two years washing of the cooling system and replacement of cooling liquid is recommended.
