1.3.1.3. Check of level of cooling liquid of the engine

GENERAL INFORMATION

Look at a transparent tank for cooling liquid when the engine is cold. Level of cooling liquid satisfactory if it is between the FULL and LOW lines on a tank. If level is lower, then add cooling liquid ethylene - the glycoleft type for appropriate protection of aluminum components against corrosion.

Level of cooling liquid in a tank will change depending on engine temperature. But, if level is below the LOW line, add cooling liquid. Increase level to the FULL line.

If the level of cooling liquid falls for a short time after replenishment, perhaps, there is a leak in system. Visually check a radiator, hoses, a cover of a bulk mouth of cooling liquid of the engine, a cover of a radiator and a drain stopper, the water pump.

If you do not find any leak, it is necessary to check cover pressure at the dealer and to find out whether there is no leak in the cooling system.


Prevention

To avoid a burn, do not uncover a radiator if the engine hot.
