Toyota RAV4>> Maintenance>> Check of levels of operational liquids>> Cooling liquid
Do not allow hit of cooling liquid on clothes and a paint and varnish covering of a body. Otherwise wash out a surface a large amount of water.
Collect and utilize the merged cooling liquid.

The liquid cooling system of the engine closed, has the broad tank located in front at the left in a motor compartment as a compensation element. The broad tank is connected by a hose to the basis of a jellied mouth of a radiator. During the operation of the engine cooling liquid due to heating extends, and a part of liquid through gets to a broad tank. When cooling the engine the volume of cooling liquid decreases, and it from a broad tank comes back to the cooling system, providing optimum level.
Regularly check the level of cooling liquid. It has to be between tags of FULL and LOW on a broad tank. Level of liquid changes depending on engine temperature. At the cold engine level has to be about a tag of LOW or slightly above it. After warming up of the engine level has to be about a tag of FULL or slightly below it. Otherwise remove a stopper from a broad tank and add cooling liquid. Use only cooling liquid on the basis of ethylene glycol and the distilled water. Do not use additional inhibitory and other additives. If only the small amount of cooling liquid is required, it is possible to add the clear distilled water.
Do not pour cooling liquid above the mark FULL: excess liquid at expansion will follow from the cooling system via the safety valve located in a stopper.
Bystry falling of level of cooling liquid indicates a leak and need of its elimination. Check a condition of a radiator, the water pump, hoses, connections and traffic jams of discharge for existence of dribble traces on them. If leaks are not found, check for service stations pressure of opening of the valve in a radiator cover.
At big loss of cooling liquid add only it after cooling of the engine to avoid an exit it out of operation because of sharp cooling.

When opening a cover of a radiator on the hot engine be careful as the coming-out vapors can lead to severe burns. Close a radiator cover a thick layer of fabric and slowly turn off a cover to the hissing sound. After the hissing termination slowly turn off and uncover a radiator.

When checking level of cooling liquid check its state. Liquid has to be pure and transparent. If cooling liquid has brown color or color of a rust, merge liquid, wash out the cooling system and fill in fresh cooling liquid.
Without fail change cooling liquid after carrying out any works on cooling system elements with discharge of cooling liquid. If at repair the head of the block of cylinders, laying of a head of the block, a radiator or the heat exchanger of oil was replaced, fill in fresh cooling liquid in the cooling system. It is connected with the fact that anticorrosive additive in cooling liquid during the operation of the engine is besieged and creates anticorrosive protection. In the cooling liquid which was in operation, anticorrosive additives are insufficiently active to form a protective layer on again established details.
