Title
(EN) A METHOD OF REPAIRING AN ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM
(FR) PROCEDE DE REPARATION DU SYSTEME DE REFROIDISSEMENT D'UN MOTEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A method of repairing a coolant system associated with an engine for a vehicle, including disconnecting a gooseneck connected to said engine and removing from said engine its thermostat; disconnecting a bottom radiator hose connected to said engine and flushing said engine with water; reconnecting said bottom radiator hose and reconnecting said gooseneck; refilling said engine's radiator with an antifreeze solution; opening a drain valve on said radiator and allowing a predetermined amount of coolant to drain out of said engine corresponding to a volume of a treatment composition to be added, said treatment composition comprising an aqueous silicate mixture comprising 50-80 % sodium silicate, based on a total amount of silicates in said mixture, and 50-20 % potassium silicate, based on said total amount of silicates in said mixture, said total amount of silicates comprising about 40-50 % of said mixture, a glycol in an amount of at least 10 % by volume of the composition and the balance being water; starting said engine when said engine is cold, and turning on said engine's heater; adding said composition to said radiator of said engine while said engine is cold and idling; running said engine until said composition causes leakage and/or vapor in said engine's exhaust stream is substantially stopped; and stopping said engine and allowing said engine to cool.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de réparation d'un système de refroidissement d'un moteur de véhicule qui consiste à déconnecter un col de cygne connecté audit moteur et à retirer dudit moteur son thermostat, à déconnecter une durite inférieure de radiateur connectée audit moteur et à vidanger le moteur avec de l'eau, à reconnecter ladite durite et le col de cygne, à remplir d'une solution antigel le radiateur du moteur, à ouvrir une soupape de vidange du radiateur et à laisser s'écouler du moteur une quantité déterminée de liquide de refroidissement correspondant au volume d'une composition de traitement à ajouter, cette composition contenant un mélange silicaté aqueux constitué de 50 à 80 % de silicate de sodium, sur la base d'une quantité totale de silicates dans ledit mélange, et de 20 à 50 % de silicate de potassium, sur la base de cette quantité totale de silicates. Cette quantité totale de silicates est constituée de 40 à 50 % dudit mélange et d'un glycol à raison de 10 % en volume de la composition, le reliquat étant de l'eau. Le procédé consiste ensuite à faire démarrer ledit moteur à froid et à allumer le chauffage de ce moteur, à ajouter ladite composition au radiateur du moteur pendant que ce dernier est froid et au ralenti, à faire tourner le moteur jusqu'à ce que la composition provoque une fuite et/ou qu'une vapeur dans le flux d'échappement du moteur disparaisse sensiblement, et, finalement, à arrêter le moteur et à le laisser refroidir.
