Check of levels of liquids
(each 400 km [250 miles] of a run or weekly)
Various liquids play a role of working bodies in lubrication systems, coolings, heating and air conditioning, braking, washing of glasses, etc. In view of the fact that all liquids are subject to fluidifying and development eventually, and also during normal functioning of systems gradually become soiled, it is necessary to make their full replacement periodically. Before starting adjustment of level or replacement, study the list of the grades of liquids recommended for use in the car.
Motive oilCheck of level of motive oil is made by means of the measuring probe inserted into the directing tube and the pallet of its case lowered in the engine to the bottom. On all models the measuring probe is located in a forward part of the power unit.
Check of level of oil has to be made before the first in the present day trip, or not less than 15 minutes later after an engine stop. If to execute check immediately after switching off of the engine, its results will adequately not reflect a situation as a part of oil will be distributed on internal galleries and components of the engine.
Rise in level from the lower mark in the probe to top, requires about one liter of oil. A level exit out of limits of the lower bound of admissible range leads to development of oil starvation of the engine fraught with serious mechanical damages of the last. Try not to pour also oil above the top mark as it can lead to a pelting of spark plugs or failure of oil of epiploons of the power unit as a result of excessive increase in pressure.
Check of level of engine oil is the important preventive procedure of service of the engine. Continuous decrease in level demonstrates existence of leak of oil as a result of failure of epiploons, damage of sealing laying, wear of piston rings or the directing plugs of valves. If oil on color or a consistence reminds milk, or at it there are water drops, it speaks about possible damage of laying of a head of cylinders, or formation of cracks to a body of a head(s) or the block. Check has to be made immediately. During measurement of level of oil always check also its state. Big and index fingers remove oil traces from a probe edge, - in case of presence at it of small metal particles oil is subject to replacement (see the Section Replacement of Motive Oil and Oil Filter).
Cooling liquid of the engine
All models of cars described in the present manual are equipped with the cooling system of compensation type working with an excessive pressure. The broad tank of the cooling system made of translucent plastic is located in a motive compartment and connected by an overflow hose to the basis of a jellied mouth of a radiator. At an engine overheat cooling liquid extends, and its surplus flows via the valve which is built in in a cover of a jellied mouth of a radiator, in a broad tank. In process of cooling, liquid comes back on a hose in a radiator that allows to support constantly normal its level in system.
Continuous falling of level of cooling liquid usually demonstrates development of leaks in system. Check a radiator, hoses, a jellied cover, drain traffic jams and the case of the water pump for existence of traces of leaks. If it is not possible to reveal any signs of leaks, it is necessary to make check of a cover of a radiator pressure in the conditions of a workshop of car service.
In need of removal of a cover of a radiator wait for full cooling of the engine, then wind a mouth with a thick layer of rags and slowly turn off a cover to the first emphasis. If at the same time there is steam emission, let's the engine cool down a little more, only after it finally uncover.
Besides level check also a condition of cooling liquid, - it has to be rather transparent. If cooling liquid is painted in henna-red color of a rust, the cooling system has to be emptied, washed out and filled with fresh mix of antifreeze with water. Even if liquid externally is not exposed to any changes, the corrosion inhibitors which are its part are exposed eventually to development therefore cooling liquid has to be replaced regularly according to the schedule of routine maintenance of the car.
Try not to allow hits of antifreeze on open sites of skin or the painted surfaces of body components. Immediately wash away incidentally got splashes a plentiful amount of water.
Liquid of washing of wind and back glasses of the car
Hydraulic liquid of the brake system and drive of couplingThe Main Brake Cylinder (MBC) is fixed on the block of the servo-driver of the vacuum amplifier of brakes. The hydraulic cylinder of coupling is used on models with RKPP and is fixed in the neighbourhood with GTTs directly on a back partition of a motive compartment. On the models equipped with ABS in the right part of a motive compartment the tank of the hydraulic modulator of anti-blocking system settles down.
In case of need adjustments of level of liquid carefully wipe a cover of the corresponding tank and a surface around it with pure rags in order to avoid hit in system of dirt.
At a liquid flood in the tank you watch to spraying it on the surrounding painted surfaces of body elements. Add to each of systems only liquid of the grade stipulated by standard requirements. Mixing of two liquids of various grade is inadmissible by no means! At adjustment of level of liquid in the GTTs tank you do not bring it to the top mark approximately on 20 mm, - after installation of a cover level will automatically return to normal. Attention: Brake fluid is extremely chemically aggressive, - do not allow hit it in eyes and on the painted surfaces of body panels! Do not use for addition in system the hydraulic liquid which staid more than one year, or stored in leaky closed container. Remember that brake fluid is very hygroscopic and has ability to absorb moisture from air then its efficiency considerably decreases!
At a stage of adjustment of level it is necessary to check also attentively a condition of liquid and internal walls of the tank. In case of identification of mud deposits, firm foreign particles or drops of water the system has to be emptied and filled with fresh hydraulic liquid (see the Head Stsepleniye and power shafts or the Brake system).
After the tank is filled to the required level, densely put on it a cover.
Remember that the level of hydraulic liquid in the GTTs tank in process of operation of frictional overlays of brake shoes slowly falls, however this decrease is always very insignificant. If liquid has to be added too often, so in system leak which source has to be immediately revealed takes place, and the cause is removed. Attentively examine all brake lines and their nipple connections, including supports, wheel cylinders and the servo-driver of the vacuum amplifier (for more details see in the Section Check of the Brake System). Falling of level of liquid in the tank of the main cylinder of coupling indicates existence of leaks in system of a hydraulic actuator of the last (see the Head Stsepleniye and power shafts).
If during check of level of liquid in GTTs the fact that its tank is almost devastated is elicited, the brake system has to be pumped completely over (see the Head the Brake system).
