5.2. Antifreeze

PREVENTIONS
Do not allow hit of antifreeze on open sites of skin and a paint and varnish covering of the car. At hit of antifreeze wash out affected areas a large amount of water.
Immediately wipe the antifreeze spilled on a floor in a garage or traces of its course on a broad tank.
Always you store antifreeze in hermetically closed container, immediately eliminate leaks from the engine cooling system.

The cooling system of the engine needs to be filled with the cooling liquid consisting of ethylene glycol solution in water (a freezing point to –9 °C). The proportion depends on weather conditions. Concentration of ethylene glycol in water has to be not less than 50%, but should not exceed 70%.
Cooling liquid contains also anticorrosive and antifoamy additives. Each two years it is necessary to make replacement of cooling liquid with obligatory washing of the cooling system. Antifreeze operation can lead longer term to corrosion, scaling in system that involves damage of the engine. Before a dolivka of antifreeze check all connections of hoses, tighten bolts of fastening of a head of the block of cylinders. Antifreeze has the increased fluidity and can follow even through very small openings.
