Common mistakes in car maintenance

Some car owners always take good care of their cars, but many riders use the wrong maintenance methods, and the results are naturally counterproductive. Below, the editor brings you a few wrong maintenance methods, quickly compare and quickly correct it.

1. Too much oil is added

When the engine oil is insufficient, the bearings and journals will have poor lubrication, which will aggravate the wear and even cause the burning of the bush shaft. However, if there is too much oil, the engine also needs to malfunction. That is, the crankshaft and the large end of the connecting rod will violently agitate during operation, which will increase the internal power loss of the engine, and will increase the amount of oil splashed on the cylinder wall, resulting in burning oil. malfunction. Therefore, the oil should be controlled between the upper and lower engraved lines of the oil dipstick.

2. Blindly like imported tires

Some riders particularly like "imported" tires, but tires suitable for European road conditions are often difficult to perform well in China, especially the side's impact resistance is particularly "squeaky", which is likely to cause side wrapping. In fact, many foreign brands of tires have added a layer of cord fabric on the side of the tires according to the domestic road conditions after the domestic joint venture production, thereby increasing the impact resistance of the sidewalls.

3. The equipment in the car is increased at will

To a car owner, a car is like a mobile home, and it is understandable to pursue comfort and luxury in the car, but many car owners like to install various equipment in the car. This modification, if not handled properly, will affect the performance of the car. And operation, it is easy to leave sequelae or affect driving safety.

4. Car wash and car paint under the sun

After washing the car in the sun, the body will soon dry, but at the same time it is also easy to damage the car paint, because under the sun, the convex lens effect formed by the water will cause local high temperature phenomenon in the top layer of the car paint. Will lose its luster. Car washing and waxing are best carried out under shelter, or in the morning or evening on cloudy or sunny days.

5. Water tank "boiler" is busy adding water

The water tank "boiling", many drivers worry that the engine temperature will rise again, immediately turn off the fire and add water. This is wrong. The correct method is to stop the engine immediately and stop the engine after the cooling water temperature has dropped. At this time, if the cooling water is insufficient, it should be added slowly.

6. Long-term non-use or short-distance use

After the cost of using cars increased, many car owners began to drive less, and some only drove during holidays. In this way, the surface of the transmission parts such as the engine and gearbox will be rusted because they are often in direct contact with the air. The best way is to let the car run for thirty or forty minutes every few days. In addition, long-term short-distance vehicles are also easy to hurt the car, you should run long-distance in a timely manner.
