Advice 1: How to replace antifreeze in the Field

It is recommended to pay attention to the condition of the antifreeze every six months. It happens that the coolant does not meet the desired density and requires replacement. In addition, if the antifreeze is discolored, it is also necessary to replace him.
How to replace antifreeze in the Field
You will need
  • - 8-10 liters of antifreeze;
  • - the key is "13";
  • - capacity with a capacity of 10 l;
  • plastic bottle;
  • - the hose.
Instruction
1
Find heater valve radiator and open it by sliding handle to the right until it stops.
2
Under the hood, remove the surge tank cap and the filler tube of the radiator.
3
On a plastic bottle cut the bottom to get a deep watering. One end of a hose put on the neck of the watering can, and the second will drop into a container. In the lower left corner of the radiator there is a drain plug. Substituting the watering can, Unscrew it and drain the antifreeze.
4
Undo the belt fastening of the surge tank and lifting it up, drain any excess fluid through the radiator. Tighten the drain plug on the radiator and put the tank back in place.
5
On the engine block, below the candle of the fourth cylinder, find the brass tube under the key "on 13". Put it under the funnel, remove and drain any excess coolant from the cylinder block. Then screw a stopper and tighten it with a key.
6
Start to fill the cooling system, pouring antifreeze into the radiator. Ensure the fluid level is between the lower and upper mark. Pour antifreeze in expansion tank. The liquid should be poured into the neck of the radiator. Periodically prosemite fingers radiator hoses to fill the system without air pockets. Screw the cap back on the reservoir tank and radiator.
7
Start the engine and let it warm up. Turn on the heater, and through him, got to go warm the air. After starting the second round of the cooling, the antifreeze will sharply fall through the system. Stopping the engine, add it to the coolant reservoir to the upper mark.

Useful advice
A few days after the replacement of antifreeze is necessary to monitor its level. If necessary top up. Sometimes in the cooling system formed an air tube. To remove, jammed the engine and allow it to cool. Then you need to Unscrew the filler tube of the radiator, start the engine and let it run for about 5 minutes. Thereafter, the tube can be closed. Before the winter period it is worth checking the alcohol content of the antifreeze. If the density is below forty percent, the liquid must be replaced.

Advice 2: How to install heater antifreeze VAZ

Pre - heater antifreeze – an indispensable device to facilitate engine starting in the most severe frosts. For cars VAZ this is especially true since they "don't like" to start in the winter. Installation of the antifreeze heater is a good solution to this problem, is feasible on its own.
How to install heater antifreeze VAZ
You will need
  • - pre-heater;
  • - coolant (antifreeze);
  • - capacity for gathering of antifreeze;
  • - import the clip;
  • - reinforced hoses of the cooling system.
Instruction
1
Disconnect all the wires from the battery terminals. Drain the coolant in in advance prepared capacity. Subsequently, gaining experience in installation of similar systems, you can mount the heaters without draining the antifreeze.
2
Remove the plug with the dispensing fitting of the fuel pump and install on it the fuel hose from the kit to the heater. To avoid air pockets, all connections of fuel pipes need butt.
3
Mounting set bolt front suspension support of the engine. To do this, loosen the nut on the bolt, install the mounting bracket of the heater and secure it with the regular nut. To the bracket attach the heater unit. Tighten nut to a torque of 42-52 Nm.
4
To connect the heater to the cooling system remove the surge tank cap. Close the heater valve (turn it to the left). Disconnect the inlet hose of the stove from fitting the engine and connect it with an outlet of the heater. The connection clamp.
5
The inlet of the heater connect with the inlet of the coolant pump. Connection clamp. Hose lay along the right mudguard of the front wing and the bulkhead.
6
The power to the heater on the car VAZ with a fuel-injected engine move from the drain pipe. To do this, Unscrew the drain hose, attach it fitting with a gasket, fitting – filter. Filter and fuel pipe connect the heater hose. Secure all connections with clamps.
7
Connect power supply to carburetor engine VAZ run to the inlet fitting of the fuel pump, using an algorithm similar to that described.
8
On the exhaust fitting of the heater slip pipe exhaust. The connection and secure with clamp. The pipe itself point in the direction opposite to the movement of the vehicle and secure it by bolting on the mounting bracket to cylinder block.
9
Similarly install the heater pipe air intake. When installing it make sure the tip of this pipe stood as high as possible, but not interfere with the free closing of the hood.
10
The remote control device, install on the dashboard or any other convenient location. Secure it with screws or with screws. Route the leads from the control panel to the heater through holes in the bulkhead. Contacts insert the wires into the socket pads on the heater.
11
Connect the power supply of the heater to terminals 1, 2, 3, and 4 pads ХЅ4 according to the wiring diagram of the car VAZ. Every time carrying out work on the connection / disconnection of the remote control, disconnect the power supply to the heater.
12
Pour antifreeze in the cooling system. Connect the wires to the battery terminals. The heater valve open by turning it as far right as possible. Start the engine and check all the installed hoses for leaks. After stopping the motor, fill the cooling system antifreeze to the desired level.
Note
While installing heater antifreeze remember safety when working with toxic (antifreeze) and combustible (diesel) substances. All hoses and piping route so that they did not have kinks.
Useful advice
When installing the heater, it is recommended to use branded clamps imported. Regular hoses for the coolant, replace imported reinforced.
