Replacement of cooling liquid

Depletion of the cooling system

Before starting implementation of the procedure, wait for final cooling of the engine. Do not allow hit of antifreeze in eyes, on open parts of the body and the painted surfaces of body panels. Immediately wash away casual splashes a plentiful amount of water. Do not leave antifreeze unguarded in an open container at all - its sweetish smell can easily draw attention of children and animals. Remember that hit of antifreeze in an organism can lead to a lethal outcome.


Models of 1.3 l

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Having waited for full cooling of the engine, firmly cock the parking brake, then a front of the car and establish to a poddomkratta it on props.

2. Uncover a jellied mouth of a broad tank (having turned a cover counterclockwise to the first emphasis, dump residual pressure in system, then uncover finally). Install a reception container under the drain stopper screwed in the basis of the metal tube passing under a pulley of a bent shaft.

3. Turn out a drain stopper and lower cooling liquid in the prepared capacity.

4. When the effluence of liquid stops, move capacity under a drain stopper in a forward part of the left end face of the block of cylinders, directly under the oil pressure sensor switch. Turn out a stopper and merge the remains of cooling liquid in capacity.

5. If depletion of system is made not for the purpose of replacement of cooling liquid, check a condition of the last. Make sure that the merged liquid fulfilled no more than three years. If everything is all right, liquid can be reused though authors of the present manual also do not recommend to adhere to similar practice. Prepare replaceable sealing washers of drain traffic jams.
6. Clean a carving of traffic jams and put on them new sealing washers. Slightly grease traffic jams with fresh sealant, then screw them on the regular places and tighten with the required effort.


Models of 1.6 l

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Having waited for full cooling of the engine, uncover a jellied mouth of a broad tank. Establish suitable drain capacity under the union of the lower hose of a radiator.
2. Release a fixing collar, disconnect the lower hose from a radiator and merge cooling liquid in the prepared capacity.
3. If depletion of system is made not for the purpose of replacement of cooling liquid, check a condition of the last. Make sure that the merged liquid fulfilled no more than two years. If everything is all right, liquid can be reused though authors of the present manual also do not recommend to adhere to similar practice.
4. When the effluence of liquid stops, connect a hose into place and fix it by a collar.


Washing of the cooling system


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. At the negligent relation to performance of regular change of cooling liquid, and also in case of strong fluidifying of antifreeze as a result of frequent addition in system of simple water, there is a gradual decrease in efficiency of cooling of the engine owing to adjournment on walls of channels and galleries of system of a scum and products of corrosion. Restoration of initial productivity of the cooling system can be made by its washing.
2. Washing of a radiator is made separately from a cooling path of the engine in order to avoid risk of pollution of all system.


Radiator


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Disconnect from a radiator the top and lower hoses of big section, and also all the other, concerning functioning cooling systems hoses (see the Head of the Cooling system, heating).
2. Insert into a reception branch pipe of the top hose on a radiator a garden hose and include water supply. Continue washing until the water following through the lower branch pipe does not gain absolute transparency.
3. If it is not possible to achieve transparency day off of a stream, it is necessary to use for washing of a radiator of one set of the patent cleaners produced now. In cases of especially serious pollution the radiator should be removed from the car and to subject to obratnopotochny washing.


Engine block


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Remove the thermostat (see the Head of the Cooling system, heating), then temporarily establish into place its cover.
2. Having disconnected the top and lower hoses from a radiator, pass throughout the first end of a garden hose and pump water. Continue washing until the stream following through the lower hose does not become absolutely pure and transparent.
3. Having finished washing, install into place the thermostat and restore initial connection of hoses of the cooling system (see the Head of the Cooling system, heating).


Gas station of the cooling system


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

Before starting gas station of the cooling system, make sure of serviceability of a state and reliability of fastening on the unions and branch pipes of all hoses concerning its functioning. Do not forget that the system has to refuel the antifreeze mix with water demanded structure at all seasons of the year. Otherwise bystry development of corrosion of internal walls of channels of a path will begin.


Models of 1.3 l

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Make sure of reliability of tightening of both drain stoppers.

2. Lower the car on the earth and turn out the sensor of temperature of cooling liquid (CTS) from the top part of a casing of the thermostat (see the Head of the Cooling system, heating).

3. Uncover a jellied mouth of a broad tank and slowly begin to fill in in a tank mix of the required structure (see below), watching a thermostat casing. When through an opening under the CTS installation mix, free from air bubbles, begins to follow, screw the sensor into place.
4. Having established to the place of CTS, continue to fill in mix until its level in a broad tank does not rise to mark MOVE in a translucent wall of the last.
5. Establish into place a cover of a jellied mouth, and strongly tighten it.
6. Start the engine and warm up it up to the normal working temperature (has to join and again be switched off the cooling system fan).
7. Kill the engine, let's it cool down, then double-check the level of cooling liquid in a broad tank. In case of need make adjustment.


Models of 1.6 l

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Make sure of serviceability of a state and reliability of fastening on the union of the lower hose of a radiator. Uncover a jellied mouth of a broad tank.
2. Uncover a jellied mouth of a broad tank and slowly fill in in a mouth mix of the required structure until its level in a broad tank does not rise to mark MOVE in a translucent wall of the last.
3. Establish into place a cover of a jellied mouth, and strongly tighten it.
4. Start the engine and warm up it up to the normal working temperature (has to join and again be switched off the cooling system fan).
5. Kill the engine, let's it cool down, then double-check the level of cooling liquid in a broad tank. In case of need make adjustment.


Configuration of cooling liquid

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Replacement of cooling liquid has to be made according to the schedule of routine maintenance of the car (see above). Only the regularity of change of antifreeze allows to minimize corrosion of a cooling path and to provide the required frost resistance of mix in winter season.
2. Use for mix configuration only antifreeze on the basis of ethylene glycol, best suitable for gas station of automobile cooling systems which path consists of diverse metals. Requirements to composition of mix, depending on the necessary level of protection, are provided in Specifications.
3. Before the beginning of gas station the system has to be completely emptied, washed preferably out, and the state and reliability of fastening of all hoses of a cooling path are carefully checked.
4. Having graduated from gas station of system, attach to a mouth of a broad tank a label with data on date of gas station and composition of the filled-in mix. At all subsequent adjustments of level only mix of the same structure has to be added that it is specified on information label to system.
5. Do not use the antifreeze intended for application in the cooling system as morozouporny additive to liquid of washing of glasses at all - such practice will inevitably lead to damage of a paint and varnish covering of body panels.
