5.6. Filling of system of cooling

1. Before filling of system of cooling check a condition of all hoses and collars of fastening of hoses. In system of cooling it is necessary to use antifreeze all the year round to exclude a korrodirovaniye of elements of the engine.
2. On l models 1,4 and 1,6 except С16 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 jams.
4. If replacement was made I cool liquid Russian cabbage soup, fill in at first in system of cooling about 1 l at its finest, then demanded amount of antifreeze then add pure water.
5. On l models 1,4 and 1,6, except С16 NZ2 after cooling liquid without air bubbles will leave 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 label on a broad tank.
7. Start the engine, warm up to normal working temperature, then switch off and cool it.
8. Check cooling system on existence of leakages of cooling liquid. Check level of cooling liquid in a broad tank and, if necessary, add liquid. Level of cooling liquid check on the cold engine. If it is necessary to add a large amount of cooling liquid, a dolivka make on the cold engine as as a result of thermoblow it is possible to damage a head of the block of cylinders.
