5.5. Plums of cooling liquid

1. Establish the car on an equal horizontal platform and open a cover of a broad tank. If the engine hot, close a cover of a broad tank a thick layer of a fabric and slowly unscrew a cover before emergence of a hissing sound. After the hissing termination slowly unscrew, and uncover a broad tank.
2. On models with DOHC engines remove the bottom protective plate of the engine.
3. Establish the corresponding container under connection of the bottom hose of a radiator, then weaken a collar and remove the bottom hose from a radiator. If the hose densely sits on a radiator branch pipe, pull and at the same time turn it. Merge cooling liquid in the container.
4. The block of cylinders of the engine plum of cooling liquid therefore the part of cooling liquid remains in cooling system has no stopper.
5. If cooling liquid is strongly polluted, wash out cooling system. As cooling liquid невозмож but to merge completely from cooling system therefore it is recommended to wash out each time at plum of cooling liquid cooling system.
