On the cold engine level of cooling liquid should be not less bottom level. At the working engine cooling liquid extends, taking into account it the tank should have enough place. At the warm engine the system of cooling is under pressure. Liquid add on the cold engine. On the hot engine, when opening a cover of a broad tank, there is a danger to scald. Do not add liquid above a maximum level. You can add a small amount of liquid at the warm engine ( the Fig. 35 ).
