5.2. Engine cooling system

Cooling liquid - general information

Do not allow hit of antifreeze on open parts of the body and the painted surfaces of the car. Immediately wash away casual splashes a plentiful amount of water. Remember that antifreeze is extremely toxic liquid and its hit in an organism even in small amounts is fraught with the most serious consequences, up to a lethal outcome. Never leave antifreeze stored in leaky closed container, immediately collect the cooling liquid spilled on a floor. Remember that the sweetish smell of antifreeze can draw to itself attention of children and animals. About ways of utilization of the fulfilled cooling liquid consult at experts HUNDRED, - in many regions of the world special points on different reception of working off are equipped. Do not merge working off in the sewerage and on the earth at all!

Recently nontoxical grades of antifreeze are developed, nevertheless, they also had to be utilized in an organized order.

The cooling system has to be filled all the year round with mix of water, antifreeze and rust-preventing agent that interferes with corrosion development, to adjournment of salts and, besides, increases temperature of boiling of cooling liquid. Additional increase in a boiling point of the heat carrier is provided due to expansion of liquid when heating. Growth of excessive pressure is limited to the double-thread valve which is built in in a radiator cover opening with a pressure of 1.05 kgfs/cm2 (103 kPa) and providing pumping of excess of liquid in a broad tank.

Excess of a boiling point leads to formation of the steam traffic jams breaking normal circulation of liquid in a cooling path. Considering told, for gas station of the cooling system has to it is necessary to use only mix of the required structure at all seasons of the year (see Specifications of the Head of the Cooling system, heating, ventilation and air conditioning).
