5.6. Filling of the cooling system

1. Before filling of the cooling system check a condition of all hoses and collars of fastening of hoses. In the cooling system it is necessary to use antifreeze all the year round to exclude corrosion of elements of the engine.
2. On l models 1,4 and 1,6 except C16 NZ2 disconnect the electric socket and unscrew the sensor of temperature I cool liquid Russian cabbage soup from an inlet collector.
3. Uncover a broad tank and slowly fill in cooling liquid to exclude formation of air traffic jams.
4. If replacement was made I cool liquid Russian cabbage soup, fill in at first in the cooling system about 1 pure l, then the required amount of antifreeze then add clear water.
5. On l models 1,4 and 1,6, except C16 NZ2 after cooling liquid without air bubbles comes out an opening for the sensor of temperature of cooling liquid, screw in the sensor of temperature of cooling liquid in an inlet collector.
6. Add cooling liquid to COLD tag on a broad tank.
7. Start the engine, warm up up to the normal working temperature, then switch off and cool it.
8. Check the cooling system for existence of leak of cooling liquid. Check the level of cooling liquid in a broad tank and, if necessary, add liquid. Check the level of cooling liquid on the cold engine. If it is necessary to add a large amount of cooling liquid, you make a dolivka on the cold engine as as a result of thermal shock it is possible to damage a head of the block of cylinders.
