Special tools and equipment for the cooling system
This system, in simple terms, is responsible for cooling the motor. The purpose of the cooling system is to maintain the optimum thermal state of the engine by removing excess heat from the parts and supplying a cooling medium to them.

Equipment for diagnostics and repair of the cooling system: tools, testers and other devices
Depressurization of the cooling system is a problem that occurs most often. It leads to leakage of coolant, the formation of air plugs and other troubles. As a result, the cooling system stops normal functioning and cannot cope with its tasks.

We recommend using professional equipment to check tightness. With the help of testers of the tightness of the cooling system, you can check: expansion tank, radiator, cylinder head gasket, water pump, plugs, connections and hoses.

The radiator is connected to a special equipped manometer. device that creates pressure in the system. Most of the devices for testing the tightness of the cooling system are designed for universal use, so they are completed with adapters for cars of various manufacturers. There are devices for specific brands – BMW, Mercedes, VW, Audi, etc. The use of this equipment for other brands and models is possible with the use of special cone-shaped adapters.

The pump creates a working pressure, the value of which is indicated on the radiator cap or in the technical specification. If the gauge needle does not fall and the readings are stable, then the cooling system is tight and working properly. External leaks immediately manifest themselves, but with the internal situation is somewhat more complicated. The coolant can flow not only outwards, but also into the engine, in which case a thorough diagnosis will be carried out.

Also check the pressure relief valve installed in the stopper of the expander tank and radiator. When the pressure exceeds the allowable rate, it should be released and return to the working indicator. If this does not occur, the pipes and the radiator may be damaged. Reduced pressure system operation is another symptom of this part’s malfunction.
Included with this equipment is a pump with a pressure gauge, adapters for different size plugs and a thermometer. First of all, the pump is connected to the cork. Pressure is applied at which the valve should operate. If this does not occur, or the pressure is not kept at all in the system (watch the indicators of the pressure gauge), urgently change the defective part.
. It is determined by the tester of exhaust leakage into the cooling system, which is mounted on the expansion tank of the cooling system or on the radiator. The upper chamber of the device is filled with indicator liquid. The car’s engine starts and steam from the cooling system enters the lower test chamber. The vapor is then transferred to a chamber with tracer liquid. If the gas leakage tester fluid changes its color to yellow-green, then unpleasant news awaits the car owner. Contact with combustion products in the jacket of the internal combustion engine clearly indicates serious problems: misalignment of cylinder heads, block cracks and so on.
