5.4. Washing of system of cooling

GENERAL INFORMATION

If replacement of cooling liquid was made irregularly or in cooling liquid the antifreeze handheld transceiver decreased концент, overall performance of system of cooling will be reduce on because passableness of channels and hoses of system of cooling will decrease because of education on their walls of a raid of a rust, a deposit or other precipitation. In this case the system of cooling is necessary for washing out.

The radiator is necessary for washing out irrespective of the engine.

For washing of a radiator merge cooling liquid from cooling system, then disconnect hoses from the basis and the top tank of a radiator. Insert a garden hose into the top branch pipe of a radiator and pass water through a radiator while water will not leave pure a branch pipe in the radiator basis. If the radiator is strongly polluted, wash out it with use of a special cleaner. Also the radiator can be washed out in the opposite direction, inserting a garden hose into the bottom branch pipe of a radiator.

Washing of the engine carry out as follows.

L models 1,4 and 1,6 except С16 NZ2

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove the thermostat, then temporarily establish a thermostat cover.
2. Disconnect the top and bottom hoses from a radiator, then insert a garden hose into the bottom hose of a radiator and pass water via the engine until water will not leave pure the top hose of a radiator.
3. After washing of the engine establish into place the thermostat and connect hoses to a radiator.

L NZ2 1,8 and 2,0 C16 models

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove the thermostat in collecting and covers.
2. Disconnect from a radiator the bottom hose, then insert into it a garden hose and pass water via the engine until water will not leave pure a thermostat casing. In order that following water was not sprayed on the engine and elements of a motor compartment, establish under a thermostat casing the plastic screen.
3. After washing of the engine establish the thermostat in collecting and covers, then connect the bottom hose of a radiator and remove the plastic screen.
