Some leaks, for example leakage of fuel, appear only at operation of the engine. As fuel quickly evaporates, especially in a hot motor compartment, its leak to find very difficult until it does not become essential. It is most easier to find leak right after start-up of the cold engine.
Attentively check all rubber hoses and metal pipelines. Reveal weakening of connections, wear of hoses, twisting and corrosion of pipelines and other damages. At wear, damage of hoses and pipelines or corrosion of pipelines replace them. At detection of traces of brake liquid on pipelines of brake system it is necessary to check operability of system.
Because of a leakage of a vacuum hose of the amplifier of brakes efficiency of braking decreases. In this case it is necessary to replace it.
