1.16.8. Expendables

All expendables, including antifreeze and hydraulic liquids in the drive of brakes and couplings, have the service life. If arise though the slightest doubts – it is not necessary to select a portion of the antifreeze which grew brown or become green from an old age from a radiator and to put it on test in a deep freeze. Replace antifreeze. Also do not save, buying doubtful medicines without labels and certificates – will be more expensive.

It is necessary to approach also the choice of nonfreezing washers of glasses not less carefully. It in rural areas at –20 °C – dry and pure snow under wheels. And in Moscow even into a hard frost – dirty fat swill which brushes willingly smear on glass, turning into an opaque whitish film. Therefore a liquid reserve in a washer reservoir – an indispensable condition of safe driving. But buying liquid with a temperature of freezing of -20 °C, be not under a delusion and do not take in head to dilute it even if on the street of -10 °C. Practice shows that on the run of liquid with a temperature of freezing of -40 °C stiffen on a windshield even in a ten-degree frost if not to warm glass (to a question of serviceability of system of ventilation and heating again).

Nonfreezing liquids for a washer, as a rule, contain additives which effectively delete dirt and purify glass. Some of them, however, excessively foam, but also they it is much better, than cheap vodka which last winter many preferred to pour in a tank. From it only began to smell in salon fighting, and it cleans glass badly...

Well, here, perhaps, and all. If you implement at least a part of these recommendations, your car will better feel this winter. And you together with it.
