It is recommended to fill the cooling system with ES Comleat or Cool Stream Premium coolant
The volume of filling into the cooling system is 15 liters.
It is recommended to replace the fluid in the cooling system after five years of operation, but if the fluid has changed its color to reddish, it must be replaced.
Discoloration indicates the development of anti-corrosion additives and the fluid has become aggressive towards the cooling components.
We prepare the car for the job.
With the ignition on, turn the handle of the supply air temperature regulator to the maximum mode.
Turn off the ignition and disconnect the negative terminal of the battery.
Remove the air filter housing.
We put a piece of hose on the drain tap fitting and bring it under the car.
We put the container under the hose to collect the drained liquid.
We unscrew the radiator valve plug by two or three turns.
We unscrew the cap of the expansion tank and drain the liquid.
After all the liquid has drained, close the radiator valve plug.
Fill the liquid through the expansion tank.
If the liquid level in the expansion tank has stopped dropping, squeeze the lower radiator hose several times.
To remove air on the pipeline from the water distributor to the heater radiator, unscrew the drain plug.
When liquid appears from the hole, screw the plug into place.
The presence of air in the system does not allow to completely fill all the liquid.
To completely fill the coolant, start the engine and add fluid.
We close the expansion tank.
We warm up the engine to the thermostat opening temperature, let the engine run in different modes.
Bring the coolant level back to normal.
After a few days of operation, check the level again, add coolant if necessary.
