PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Launch the engine and warm up it up to the working temperature.

Prevention

On the heated-up engine the system is under pressure therefore cover a stopper with a rag and remove it an outstretched arm.


3. Establish 1 tester 2 representing the manual piston pump with the manometer on a mouth of a broad tank.
4. Increase the tester pump the 2nd pressure in the cooling system to 0,1 MPas and wait 10 min.
5. If excessive pressure in system decreases during the specified time, so the system is untight. Find places of leak of cooling liquid and eliminate a leak.
