Useful tips

Check of serviceability of a radiator of a heater

Sometimes, the radiator gives hot air only the first several seconds after turning on of the fan of a heater, and then air remains hardly warm. Malfunction can be caused by the shift of a rubber partition which divides a tank into two parts. For check we merge cooling liquid from the cooling system. We put the radiator removed from the car vertically, branch pipes down. We connect a hose with water from a water supply system to one of branch pipes and slowly we start up a stream. On a faulty radiator water will at once run from other branch pipe. The serviceable radiator will be filled, considerably will grow heavy, and only then water will begin to flow from other branch pipe.
