In a society with rapid economic development, people's lives have been greatly improved, and everyone has a car is no longer a distant dream. Nowadays, everyone has their own car. Many car owner friends do not know much about car maintenance, which leads to inadequate maintenance of the car. Excessive maintenance may also “fix” the bad car, which not only increases the cost of car maintenance. , And will indirectly cause unnecessary damage to the car. Today, I will share some practical car maintenance tips with my friends, so that my friends will be more healthy while reducing the cost of car maintenance.
Scientific and reasonable maintenance and repair of your car
Car maintenance cycle refers to the mileage or time between car maintenance. Although high maintenance frequency is not a bad thing, it is recommended that friends refer to the maintenance cycle recommended by the car manufacturer, so as to more effectively guarantee the performance of the vehicle. The initial use of the vehicle is mainly normal maintenance, and the cost is relatively low; when the vehicle is used for a certain number of years or after driving a certain mileage, it will enter the maintenance period, and the cost is relatively high.
According to the technical condition of the car itself and the actual conditions of use, the maintenance cycle should be appropriately adjusted. Generally, if the vehicle is in good condition, the maintenance period can be appropriately extended; while if the vehicle is in poor condition or in bad conditions, the maintenance period should be appropriately shortened.
Reasonable oil change
When a car travels for a certain number of kilometers, it is necessary to change the oil. How to choose the right oil for your car is the most headache for the owner. It can be selected according to the motor oil level specified in the vehicle instruction manual. If there is no motor oil of the same level, only a higher level of oil can be used, and a lower level of oil must never be used instead.
Too high pursuit of high standard oil
The gasoline label is only a parameter for calibrating the anti-knock performance of gasoline. It is not necessarily related to whether the gasoline is clean and fuel efficient. It is not that the higher the gasoline label, the better. Even high-end cars are not equal to the higher-grade gasoline. Some owners feel that high-grade gasoline is good gasoline. The instructions indicate that gasoline No. 92 is used. The official oil standard is based on the compression ratio coefficient and gasoline anti-knock coefficient of the automobile engine, so it is not necessarily good for the car if it is not a high standard oil.
Don't overwash and wax
Many car owners "bath" their cars as soon as they have free time. They wash them a few days a week, and wash them a week. Maybe these people like their cars very much. In fact, this will increase the deterioration of the paint brightness. It is recommended that you wash the car once a month, and you should use a neutral detergent and a car wax that does not contain abrasives when waxing.
Air filter replacement
The air filter element and the engine life are also closely related. As a device for filtering impurities in the air, after a long time of use, the filter will be blocked, the intake air volume will be reduced, and the engine power will be reduced, which will also cause more carbon deposits. Generally, it should be replaced in less than one year, and the mileage does not exceed 15,000 kilometers.
Refueling when the yellow indicator light is on
I believe this is also the habit of many small friends. When the fuel tank is almost exhausted, it is reluctant to refuel. This will often cause the upper part of the fuel pump in the fuel tank to not be cooled by fuel, and it is easy to heat and burn. It takes hundreds of RMB to replace a fuel pump. The use of this method to control oil consumption is caused by small losses.
Long-term Geothermal Vehicle
For a long time, the in-situ hot car not only consumes fuel but also damages the engine. Some people think that "the longer the hot car is, the better the engine is." In fact, this is wrong, but you cannot start the car as soon as you get on the car. The car's idling speed is quite high when it is just started, and it is more appropriate to let the car start under natural idling conditions until the water temperature starts to rise and the idling speed returns to normal level.
