2.11. Check of the cooling system


Typical damages of hoses

1. The ground hose

2. A softening because of internal defect

3. Perezhatiye of a collar

4. Swelling because of oil hit

1. The cooling system should be checked on the cold engine therefore it is better to carry out the procedures described below either before a trip, or after a trip, not less than three hours later after an engine stop.
2. Carefully turn off a stopper of a radiator and carefully wipe rags from the inside. Wipe a radiator mouth, existence on a mouth of traces of corrosion or oil indicates changes of cooling liquid the need (presence of oil testifies to violation of tightness of laying of a head of cylinders). Liquid in a broad tank and a radiator has to be rather pure and transparent. If liquid is painted by a rust, or has an oily film, merge liquid, wash out system and fill in the fresh cooling mix in the necessary proportion.
3. Carefully check hoses of a radiator and a heater on all their length. At detection of swellings, cracks or mechanical damages replace hoses. Cracks on a hose are better visible at its bending. Pay special attention to collars which hoses to cooling system details fix.
4. Check existence of traces of dribble on all details of the cooling system (including hoses, demountable connections, etc.). Traces of a leak of liquid are usually shown in the form of a white raid or a rust. At detection of such traces on details of system replace a detail or laying. Replace all shplintovy (wire) collars with collars with a screw inhaling.
5. Clear forward part of a radiator of insects, the leaves, etc. which took root into a lattice. Be careful not to damage a radiator tube.
