Technical maintenance of cars is necessary for the reliability of their operation
Finally came true dream of your new car andhe is now with you. In the joys, at first you do not part with him at all. Therefore it is made imperceptibly, as on its speedometer the figure of 2000 kilometers is typed. Here at this moment and should be careful. Although almost all motorists know that the first maintenance of cars should be carried out after 10 or 15 thousand kilometers (depending on the manufacturer's requirements), there are a number of works that it is desirable to perform after a run of 2000 kilometers.
First of all, you need to inspect the car,check its general technical condition and tighten, if necessary, the attachment of units. Inspect the condition and the battery. To check the coolant level, it is necessary to inspect the expansion tank, the level should not exceed the "MAX" mark and be 3-4 cm above the "MIN" mark. It is also mandatory to monitor tire pressure and check external lighting devices. Such unscheduled maintenance of the car will give you confidence in its reliability and safety of its operation.
In the future, during operation, it is necessaryundergo regular maintenance of cars. This service consists in the fact that a whole complex of mandatory service operations is required, which are provided by the manufacturer. Maintenance should not only provide, but also guarantee the safety, comfort and environmental friendliness of the car. Typically, the frequency of service and the amount of operations required to perform operations depend on the number of kilometers of run, as well as on the period of time elapsed since the previous maintenance.
However, very important in our time is alsohave the conditions in which the car is operated. Great value is played by driving on dusty and dirty roads, exploitation with high loads: driving on mountain roads or with frequent stops (city cycle). Also it is necessary to take into account the towing of the trailer, participation in sports, exploitation in regions with high humidity and at extreme temperatures, all this affects the length of the period in which the maintenance of cars is to be carried out.
Typically, the timing of this serviceare indicated in the service booklet. Most cars have a special indicator that lights up after the inter-service interval established by the manufacturer, that is, takes into account the mileage after the last "reset" of the indicator. But already in many new car models such indicators are able to take into account not only the mileage, but also the time, as well as the conditions in which the car is operated. In this case, it will be necessary to focus not on the distance that the machine passed, but on the indications of this indicator.
Regulations on which the technicalcar maintenance, require two types of procedures. The first group of procedures includes the replacement of consumable fluids and materials: engine oil and air filters, fuel filter, filters of other car systems if necessary, spark plugs, engine oil and oil in other units, brake and transmission fluids. The second, no less important group of procedures is the mandatory control of the condition of all units, assemblies and components for the safety of car operation. This is primarily a brake system, engine, steering, suspension and transmission. Full maintenance of the car is the performance of both types of specified procedures, they are its mandatory and integral part. For example, there will be no sense in replacing the brake fluid if the brake discs are worn out above normal. That is, only the mandatory performance of all the foreseen works guarantees the reliability of the operation of the car.
