4.1. Cooling system


On all models the cooling system of the closed type including a radiator, the water pump receiving the drive from a gas-distributing belt, the electric fan of cooling, the thermostat, a broad tank and connecting hoses is installed.

Precautionary measures

1. Do not open a cap of a broad tank and do not disconnect water hoses of the cooling system when the engine hot as you can be scalded by steam.

2. You watch that antifreeze did not get on skin or the painted surface of the car. If it happened, immediately wash away antifreeze a large amount of water.

3. If the engine hot, the fan of cooling can turn on even if the engine is switched off. Be careful.
