Repair B3-B4/Passat B3-B4 Volkswagen Passat>> Ekspluatatsiiya of the car>> System of cooling of the engine
       PREVENTIONS
1. When opening a cover of a broad tank (fig. 1.57) on the hot engine be careful, as leaving hot pairs can lead to strong burns.
2. Do not allow hit of cooling liquid on skin, clothes and a paint and varnish covering of a body, otherwise to wash out a surface a plentiful quantity of water.


Fig. 1.57. Broad tank of system of cooling


Level of cooling liquid. For normal operation of the engine level of cooling liquid should be between marks of "MIN" and «MAX» of a broad tank. On the cold engine level of cooling liquid in a broad tank should be up to standard of "MIN" label, on hot – «MAX». In a broad tank there is a sensor of level of cooling liquid which at emergency decrease in level of cooling liquid includes an alarm lamp in combinations of devices. Under normal conditions car and tightness operation the cooling system practically does not need additional maintenance. As cooling liquid apply antifreeze on an etilenglikolevy basis with corrosion inhibitor.
Check of tightness of system of cooling. It is possible to determine places of leakages of cooling liquid by existence of a raid of white color. Bending and compressing hoses and sleeves, check their elasticity and existence of cracks. Check reliability of fastening of hoses and system sleeves.
Fast decrease in level of cooling liquid, availability in it of oil, and also emergence of a white smoke from an exhaust pipe testify to "burn-out" of laying of a head of the block of cylinders which it is necessary to replace.
The fan of cooling of the engine turns on automatically on a signal of the sensor of temperature of cooling liquid. After a stop of the hot engine the electric fan can work about 10 more minutes. After ignition switching off probably automatic turning on of the fan at engine temperature increase.

       PREVENTION
If the temperature of cooling liquid high, and the fan does not join, it is necessary to check and if necessary to replace the fan fuse. If the fan again does not turn on, address on service station and car repairs.
