The prevention

If the system of prestarting heating just worked or the engine was just switched off, candles накаливания will be very hot.

1. Disconnect the negative plug of the accumulator.
2. Remove system of pipes of an air inlet and disconnect a ventilation hose картера from маслозаливной mouths.
3. Unscrew a fastening nut (it is specified by an arrow) токовой tyres to a candle накаливания. Pay attention that the feeding wire is connected to токовой to the tyre on a candle накаливания the cylinder № 2.
4. If necessary displace aside any pipes and wires to improve access to a removed candle накаливания.
5. Unscrew a candle накаливания and take from the block of cylinders.


1. Check up each candle накаливания on presence of mechanical damages. The reason of that candle tips накаливания are burnt or destroyed, there can be a bad stream of dispersion of fuel an atomizer. If there is such damage, it is necessary to check up and if necessary to replace fuel atomizers.
2. If candles накаливания have no mechanical damages, check up their electric resistance which should be less than 1 Ohm.
3. Working capacity of candles накаливания can be checked up, submitting on them of 12 volt. Thus they should heat up in regular intervals and for a demanded interval of time.
4. Thus it is necessary to observe safety measures:
      – To hold a candle накаливания a special clip or flat-nose pliers;
      – The electric feed circuit of a candle накаливания should have the fuse;
      – After check the candle накаливания should be cooled within several minutes.
5. The candle накаливания in a good condition heats up to reddening of a working tip within 5 seconds. At longer heating or heating in an average part, instead of on the candle end, the candle is faulty and is subject to replacement.

1. Installation is made in sequence, return to removal.
2. Thus it is necessary to grease a carving part of a candle антипригарным with structure on the basis of copper.
