Visual check of tightness of the cooling system


  1. To check hoses of cooling liquid for existence of cracks, to replace the hardened hoses.
  2. Hoses have to be put on unions rather deeply.
  3. To check durability of landing of hose collars. If necessary to establish screw collars instead of former tightening collars.
  4. If the level of cooling liquid often falls, and places of leak do not manage to be defined, to make check on the warm engine. For this purpose to warm up the engine and to leave to idle until the fan turns on. To watch at the same time whether cooling liquid in the field of the water pump acts.
  5. Obvious loss of cooling liquid and/or availability of oil in cooling liquid, and also white exhaust cloud at the warm engine indicate defect of laying of a head of cylinders.

If to find the place of leak it does not work well, recommended to make check under pressure, see the Section Check of Tightness of the Cooling System. At the same time it is possible to check also perepuskny the cover valve.
