Check the condition of the car before driving, pay attention to mileage and climate

"Pre-vehicle inspection? What can be inspected?" When it comes to doing pre-vehicle inspection before driving, if you disdain it, you are wrong. In fact, driving safety starts from the moment you prepare to drive. There are standards, methods, and evidence for inspections before driving.

Pre-vehicle inspection

1. Inspection around the car body: including obstacles, personnel, dangerous goods, etc. around the car body

2. Vehicle condition inspection: including whether there is liquid leakage, whether the body itself is abnormal, etc.

(1) The inspection should be started during the far and near process before boarding the vehicle. Go around for a week and check for liquid leaks, including coolant, lubricant, and fuel leaks. For example, the air conditioning condensate seeps quickly after landing, and there is no trace of floating. If it floats, it may be lubricating oil or fuel oil, and there may be potential safety hazards.

(2) Tires should focus on checking the air pressure, damage, wear and other conditions. When the tire pressure is normal, there are no more than 5 patterns on the ground. More than 5 patterns indicate that the air pressure is too low, and less than 3 patterns indicate that the air pressure is too high.

Unconventional inspection

Unconventional inspections are special inspections based on mileage, roads, and areas. If you need to drive continuously for more than 5 days in a cold zone above -18 degrees Celsius and a high temperature zone above 30 degrees Celsius, or drive a mileage of more than 800 kilometers, special inspections are required.

For long-distance driving, visiting relatives and friends during the Chinese New Year, and traveling, you must go to the 4S shop for professional inspection. For example, from Beijing to Mohe, because the local temperature is extremely low, both antifreeze and motor oil need to be replaced. If you want to go to Tibet, you need to add some equipment, such as oxygen cylinders. In addition, it is necessary to determine the degree of tire wear and engine braking, etc. based on mileage.

Before departure, the vehicle's lights (turn signals, brake lights), tire pressure, and emergency equipment (spare tires, tools, fire extinguishers, warning signs) must be checked.


Earlier, a court tried a case. The couple took the children home, and the man sent his wife home and went out again. When he returned to the car and stepped on the accelerator in gear, he suddenly felt something was rolling.

It turned out that the 3-year-old son squatted behind the car to play, because he did not check before getting on the car, he actually crushed his son to death.

Comment: If the man can consciously conduct a pre-vehicle inspection, he can avoid the tragedy. In the final analysis, the security awareness is weak. Form good driving habits, take the initiative to reduce the risk factors before getting on the bus, and be responsible for yourself, your family and society.

Answer reader questions

Q: How to check whether the oil is normal?

Answer: You can open the cover to check whether the oil is normal before departure. If you want to check the car during driving, you can only check whether the oil is normal after parking for half an hour.

After opening the cover, you can also check whether the battery fluid, coolant, brake fluid, etc. are normal. This inspection does not need to be done every day, it is recommended to do it once a week.

Q: Sometimes I feel a bit crooked during driving, what should I do?

Answer: This again shows the necessity of pre-vehicle inspection. It is necessary to walk around the car before boarding. Check whether the exposed screws on the car are complete or loose, whether the accessories on the body are complete, and whether the body is balanced without tilting.
