The openings on the rotary valve vary the cross-sections of the different coolant ducts as a function of the rotational angle of the rotary valve. The following graphics schematically represent the various engine operation phases, from cold start to maximum cooling requirement.


 Cold-start phase

Point A in the heat management module circuit diagram designates the cold start with an engine that has completely cooled down. Cold-start phase, Bx8TU engine In the cold-start phase, the coolant c
