3.3. Composition of mix of cooling liquid


Content of antifreeze in cooling liquid should not exceed 60% that corresponds to protection against freezing to –40 °C, otherwise the protective and cooling properties of cooling liquid will decrease.

It is not recommended to use earlier applied mix of antifreeze and G11 rust-preventing agent which has green color.

It is forbidden to mix anticorrosive means of G11 and G12 as it can lead to serious damages of the engine.

If in the cooling system the cooling liquid which is not recommended by the producer was filled in merge it from the cooling system. Fill in clear water in the cooling system and turn on the engine on idling turns for 2 minutes. Merge water from the cooling system and through a broad tank blow the engine cooling system compressed air. Fill in the fresh cooling liquid recommended by the producer.
