Check of levels of liquids

Below some special procedures of service demanding performance of additional checks of levels of liquids are described also. Regularly look under the car, checking it on existence of signs of development of leakages of working liquids.

Check of levels of the main working liquids (the impellent oil, cooling liquid, liquid of washing of a windscreen, battery electrolit, liquid of system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel) should be made on a regular basis, is not more rare than once a month or through each 5000 km of run. The others - according to the schedule THAT (see. Undressed the Schedule of routine maintenance of Mitsubishi Galant/Mirage/Diamante cars).


Various liquids play a role of working bodies in systems of greasing, cooling, braking, coupling, heating and air conditioning, washing of glasses etc. In view of that all liquids are subject eventually to a razzhizheniye and development, and also during normal functioning of systems gradually become soiled, it is necessary to make their complete replacement periodically. Before starting correction of level or replacement, familiarize with the list recommended for use in the car of grades of liquids.

At check of levels of liquids the car should be parked on an equal horizontal platform, whenever possible with a firm covering.


Impellent oil

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Check of level of impellent oil is made by means of measuring щупа, passed in directing tube and lowered in the engine to the bottom point of the pallet of its case. Location measuring щупа is shown on the illustrations showing placement of components in an impellent compartment of the car and placed at the beginning of the present Chapter.
2. Check of level of oil should be made before the trip first in the present day, or about 15 minutes later after an engine stop. If to execute check immediately after engine switching off, its results will adequately not reflect a situation as the part of oil will appear distributed on internal galleries and engine components.

3. Take measuring щуп from a directing tube and dry wipe its edge pure rags or a paper towel. Insert щуп back into a tube against the stop, then again take. Having examined an edge щупа, estimate size of the site moistened with oil. Level of oil should be between the top and bottom marks in an edge щупа. In case of need add in the engine the corresponding amount of oil of a demanded grade.

4. For level lifting from bottom (MIN) of a mark on щупе to top (MOVE) is required slightly less than one liter of oil. Level lowering out of limits of the bottom border of an admissible range conducts to development of oil starvation of the engine fraught with serious mechanical damages of the last. Try not to pour also oil above the top mark as it can lead to a pelting of spark plugs or failure of epiploons of the power unit as a result of excessive increase of pressure.
5. To fill in oil in the engine it is necessary to remove the cover of a jellied mouth equipped with a carving. In order to avoid an oil razbryzgivaniye during its filling in the engine use a funnel, or a butterdish with a long nouse. Having filled in oil, screw and strongly tighten a cover of a jellied mouth, then start the engine and attentively examine on existence of signs of leaks a drain stopper and a surface of the oil filter interfaced to the block. Muffle the engine, wait about 15 minutes during which oil will merge in the pallet, then once again check its level.
6. Check of level of engine oil is important preventive procedure of service of the engine. Continuous decrease in level testifies to existence of leakages of oil as a result of failure of epiploons, damage of sealing laying, wear of piston rings or directing plugs of valves. If oil on color or a consistence reminds milk, or at it there are water drops, it speaks about possible damage of laying of a head of cylinders, or formation of cracks to a head body (ok) or the block. Check should be made immediately. During measurement of level of oil always check also its condition. Big and index fingers remove from an edge щупа oil traces, - in case of presence at it small metal particles oil is subject to replacement (see. Section Replacement of impellent oil and oil filter).


Cooling liquid of the engine

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

Do not allow antifreeze hit on open sites of a body and the painted surfaces of the car. Casual splashes immediately wash away a plentiful quantity of water. Remember that antifreeze is extremely toxic liquid and its hit in an organism even in small amounts is fraught with the most serious consequences, up to a lethal outcome. Never leave antifreeze being stored in leaky closed container, immediately collect cooling liquid spilled on a floor. Remember that the sweetish smell of antifreeze can draw to itself attention of children and animals. About ways utilization of the fulfilled cooling liquid consult with local authorities,-.во many regions of the world special points on different reception of working off are equipped. At all do not merge old cooling liquid in the sewerage and on the earth!


Recently nontoxical grades of antifreeze are developed, nevertheless, they also should to be utilized in the organized order.


1. All models of cars described in the real Management are equipped with system of cooling of the compensatory type, working at superfluous pressure. The broad tank of system of cooling made of translucent plastic is located in a forward corner of an impellent compartment closely to the battery and connected by a perelivny hose to the basis of a jellied mouth of a radiator. At engine warming up cooling liquid extends, and its surplus flows via the valve which has been built in in a cover of a jellied mouth of a radiator, in a broad tank. In process of cooling, liquid comes back on a hose back to a radiator that allows to support constantly in norm its level in system.

Do not uncover at all a jellied mouth of a radiator / a broad tank at the hot engine!

2. Level of cooling liquid in a broad tank is checked on a regular basis and should be supported between FULL and LOW marks put on stack of the tank made of translucent plastic. It is necessary to remember that level of cooling liquid depends on its temperature therefore it should be in a cold condition only slightly above bottom (LOW), and after engine warming up - to rise to FULL mark. In case of need make the corresponding adjustment, having added in a tank demanded quantity of a fresh mix.

For correction of level of liquid use only demanded structure a mix этиленгликоля and the distilled water (about 50/50). Remember that frequent application for this purpose leads idle time of water to a gradual razzhizheniye of antifreeze and an utrachivaniye a mix of frost resistance and anticorrosive properties. It is not necessary to abuse also various type additives.

3. Continuous falling of level of cooling liquid usually testifies to development of leaks in system. Check on existence of traces of leaks a radiator, connecting hoses, a cover of a jellied mouth, drain jams and the case of the water pump. If it is not possible to reveal any signs of leaks, it is necessary to make check of a cover of a radiator by pressure in the conditions of a car-care center workshop.

Do not uncover at all a radiator / a broad tank at the hot engine!

4. In need of removal of a cover of a radiator wait complete cooling of the engine, then wind a mouth with a thick layer of rags and slowly unscrew a cover to the first emphasis. If thus there is a steam emission, let's to the engine cool down a little more, after it finally uncover.
5. Besides level always check also a condition of cooling liquid, - it should be rather transparent. If cooling liquid is painted in henna-red color of a rust, the system of cooling should be emptied, washed out and filled with a fresh mix of antifreeze with water. Even if liquid outwardly is not exposed to any changes, inhibitors of corrosion entering into its structure are exposed eventually to development therefore cooling liquid should be replaced regularly according to the schedule of routine maintenance of the car (see. Undressed the Schedule of routine maintenance of Mitsubishi Galant/Mirage/Diamante cars).
6. Try not to allow antifreeze hits on open sites of skin or the painted surfaces of body components. Casual splashes immediately wash away a plentiful quantity of water.


Liquid for windscreen washing

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

Liquid for washing of a windscreen is filled in in the special tank made of plastic located in a forward corner of an impellent compartment of the car, an opposite corner in which the storage battery and a broad tank of system of cooling take place. In regions with a temperate climate as liquid for washing of glass pure water can be used, however it is not necessary to fill the tank more than on 2/3 for the purpose of compensation of expansion of water at its freezing during frosts. At car operation in severe climatic conditions to use only patent screen wipers providing the corresponding decrease in a freezing point of liquid. In order to avoid a glass obmerzaniye when washing in cold weather previously warm up it a way обдува passed via the heater heat exchanger air

Rules of configuration of a mix are usually printed to a container label. At all do not apply to addition in liquid of washing of glasses used in cooling system antifreeze, - the last is aggressive in relation to a paint and varnish covering of body panels!


Electrolit of the storage battery

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

Cars considered in the real Management are completed with the battery of tight type not needing service in which case only ventilating openings are provided. The case of the battery can be made of translucent plastic, - in this case electrolit level in its banks can be supervised for the purpose of obtaining indirect information on serviceability of functioning of system of a charge and current state of the battery. If in use a vehicle the battery for any reason was replaced on usual (served type), it is necessary to check from time to time electrolit level in its banks for what it is necessary to remove the top control/jellied jams. Especially attentively it is necessary to watch electrolit level in a warm season. For correction of level of electrolit it is necessary to use only the distilled water.


Hydraulic liquid of brake system and coupling drive

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. The main brake cylinder (GTTs) is fixed on the block of the servo-driver of the vacuum amplifier of brakes. The hydraulic cylinder of coupling is used on models from RKPP and fastens on a back partition of an impellent compartment in the neighbourhood from GTTs (location of tanks of both cylinders is shown on see the accompanying illustrations explaining an arrangement of components in impellent compartments of considered models at the beginning of this Chapter).
2. Liquid level in GTTs tanks and a drive of coupling is well looked through through translucent walls of the last and should be supported between marks of MIN and the MOVE, without reaching to top on 8 ÷ 9 mm.

3. In case of need corrections of level of liquid carefully wipe a cover of the corresponding tank and a surface round it pure rags in order to avoid hit in hydraulic system of dirt.
4. At a liquid flood in the tank watch that it was not sprayed on the surrounding painted surfaces of body elements. Add in each of systems only liquid of the grade stipulated by standard requirements (see. Specifications at the beginning of this Chapter), - mixing of two liquids of a various grade by no means is inadmissible and can lead to refusal of the relevant system!

Brake liquid is extremely chemically aggressive, - do not allow hit it in eyes and on the painted surfaces of body panels! Do not use for addition in system the hydraulic liquid which has staid of more than one year, or stored in leaky closed container. Remember that brake liquid is very hygroscopic, i.e. possesses ability to absorb moisture from air therefore efficiency of functioning of brake system can dangerously decrease!

5. At a stage of correction of level it is necessary to check also attentively a condition of liquid and internal walls of the tank. In case of identification of mud deposits, firm extraneous particles or water drops the system should be emptied and filled with fresh hydraulic liquid (see. Heads Coupling and transmission line and Brake system).
6. After the tank will be filled to demanded level, densely plant on it a cover.
7. Remember that level of hydraulic liquid in the GTTs tank in process of operation of frictional overlays of brake shoes gradually falls, however this decrease is always very insignificant. If liquid has to be added too often, therefore, in system the leak which source should be immediately revealed takes place, and the reason is eliminated, - attentively examine all brake lines and their shtutserny connections, including supports, wheel cylinders and the servo-driver of the vacuum amplifier (Check of serviceability of functioning of the vacuum amplifier of brakes for more details see in the Section). Falling of level of liquid in the tank of a hydraulic actuator of coupling testifies to development of leaks in a path, including the executive cylinder (see. Head Coupling and transmission line).
8. If during check of level of liquid in the main cylinders that fact is elicited that its tank is almost devastated, the relevant system should be pumped completely over (see. Head Coupling and transmission line or Brake system).


Liquid of system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. The tank of liquid of system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel is located in a forward corner of an impellent compartment behind the tank of liquid of washing of glass (see the accompanying illustrations explaining an arrangement of components in impellent compartments of considered models at the beginning of this Chapter).

2. The cover of the tank is equipped built in measuring the shchupy. A procedure for test standard for all measurements with the help щупов.

3. Try not to allow an exit of level of liquid out of limits of the bottom border of an admissible range.

4. In case of need make the corresponding correction of level, having added in a tank mouth hydraulic liquid of a demanded grade.

5. If need for correction of level of liquid arises regularly and often, check on existence of signs of leaks the steering pump, a case of reechny transfer, and also all connecting lines of a hydraulic path of system and their shtutserny connections.


RKPP transmission oil

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. The case of RKPP is not equipped measuring the shchupy. To Poddomkratta the car also establish it on props. Level of transmission oil in a transmission is checked by a reversing of a control/jellied stopper from a lateral wall of a case of RKPP.). Find a stopper and carefully wipe a surface of a case of a box surrounding it pure rags. By means of a cap or face key turn out a stopper, - level of transmission oil in a case should reach the bottom cut of a control/jellied opening, otherwise it is necessary to make the corresponding adjustment. If the car is lifted over the earth for the purpose of ensuring access to RKPP case before being appropriated for it make sure of reliability of fastening of props.

The car should be established strictly horizontally!


2. Having used a funnel with a suitable transitional nozzle, fill in in RKPP case demanded amount of fresh transmission oil. Continue to fill in oil until it will not start to be poured through bottom edge of a jellied/control opening.
3. Screw carefully wiped stopper on a place and strongly tighten it. Make short trial runs of the car after which make sure of lack of signs of development of leakages of oil through a stopper.


ATF

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Correctness of level of ATF is one of critical operational parameters of the models equipped with AT. Excessive falling of level of ATF can lead to pro-slipping of the converter of rotation whereas the excessive amount of liquid conducts to its foaming, to formation of leaks and is fraught with a transmission exit out of operation.
2. Check of level of ATF should be made at the transmission warmed up to normal working temperature (15 ÷ 20 km of run, 72 ÷ 80 °C).

It is not necessary to make check of level of ATF right after car operation on high speeds, in the conditions of a city cycle in hot weather, or after trailer towage, - previously let's liquids cool down within about 30 minutes!

3. Park the car on an equal horizontal platform with a firm covering, strongly cock the parking brake. If the engine cold, start it and warm up to normal working temperature on single turns. At the working engine squeeze out a pedal of a foot brake and serially carry out the AT selector lever through all provisions, in summary, having returned it to the situation "R".

4. Without suppressing the engine, take from a directing tube measuring щуп. Fingers remove from an edge щупа traces of ATF and to the touch estimate its condition.

5. Carefully wipe an edge pure rags and enter щуп back into directing tube, having densely planted a cover on a mouth.

6. Again take щуп from a mouth and by length of the moistened site of an edge determine ATF level in a transmission case. In case of need make the corresponding adjustment, through a funnel having added in transmission liquid of a demanded grade, - fill in ATF directly in a mouth of a directing tube measuring щупа.

7. Lifting of level of ATF from the bottom border of a working range щупа to top needs about 0.6 l of liquid - add ATF in the small portions in stages, each time checking level.
8. At the same time with level it is necessary to check as well ATF condition. If the liquid moistening the end of an edge щупа has a dark red-brown shade, or smells as ashes, ATF should replace (see. Section Replacement of ATF of automatic transmission and differential of the main transfer, check of a condition and AT filter service). In the absence of confidence of correctness of an assessment of a condition of transmission liquid compare it on color and a smell to fresh ATF.


Check of level of greasing in a transfer case (only all-wheel drive Galant)

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Park the car on an equal horizontal platform, whenever possible with a firm covering. Cock the parking brake, on models from AT transfer the selector lever to the situation "R".
2. Before starting check examine a case of a transfer case on existence of signs of development of leaks. Greasing level in a transfer case on all-wheel drive models should reach the bottom cut of a control/jellied opening from the back party of its case. For check enter into an opening a finger. In parallel, estimate to the touch a condition of the oil filled in in a box.
3. In case of need make the corresponding adjustment, having added demanded amount of oil through a jellied opening, - use a funnel or the manual pump.
4. Track reliability of a tightening of a stopper.


Greasing of differential of the back bridge (only all-wheel drive Galant)

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Park the car on an equal horizontal platform, whenever possible with a firm covering. Cock the parking brake, on models from AT transfer the selector lever to the situation "R".
2. Greasing level in differential also should reach the bottom cut of a control/jellied opening. For check enter into an opening a finger. In parallel, estimate to the touch a condition of the oil filled in in a box.
3. In case of need make the corresponding adjustment, having added demanded amount of oil through a jellied opening, - use a funnel or the manual pump.
4. Track reliability of a tightening of a stopper.
