1.7.21. Check of level of liquid in a tank of a hydraulic actuator of the amplifier of steering

Fig. 1.183. Tank of a hydraulic actuator of the amplifier of steering



Liquid level in a tank of a hydraulic actuator of the amplifier of steering needs to be calibrated daily. During conducting this check the ignition key is installed in the provision of "OFF". Liquid level has to be in a tank of a hydraulic actuator of the amplifier of steering between marks in a tank "MOVE" ("Maximum") and "MIN" ("Minimum").

NOTE
Right after start of the engine at very low temperature (below – 20 °C) the crunch proceeding from the pump of the hydraulic booster of steering can be sometimes heard. If in process of warming up of the engine the crunch disappears, the amplifier means works normally. It is caused by feature of properties of liquid at very low temperatures.

NOTE
Do not start the engine if the tank of a hydraulic actuator of the amplifier of steering is empty.

Hoses of a hydraulic actuator of the amplifier of steering
It is recommended to check connections of hoses of a hydraulic actuator of the amplifier of steering through the intervals specified in the service book. At detection of cracking, stretching or spots of wear hoses of a hydraulic actuator of the amplifier of steering need to be replaced. Bad technical condition of hoses can lead to premature breakage of the hydraulic booster.
