Regular service

If from the moment of acquisition of the new car the owner carefully adheres to the schedule of routine maintenance, rather often to make checks of levels of liquids and a condition of components subject to raised wear, the power unit of a vehicle will reliably serve during many and many thousand kilometers of run. Thus need for performance of additional repair and recovery operations will be minimized.

On the other hand, it is very probable that in case of neglect performance of procedures of regular routine maintenance, enough soon there will come the moment when efficiency of return of the engine considerably will fall. Told in a special measure treats cases of acquisition of the car which was in the use which previous owner carelessly treated care of it. Thus the new owner will not manage to avoid need of carrying out additional recovery operations.

In case of suspicions on wear of the engine, a lot of useful information about a condition of its internal components it is possible to receive, having inspected kompressionny pressure in cylinders (see appropriate section of Head engine Repair). Based on the results of testing it is possible to estimate volume of the forthcoming recovery operations rather precisely. For example, if check of a compression revealed signs of considerable internal wear of the engine, implementation of the usual list of procedures of the service given below in this Chapter, will not lead to restoration of parameters of the unit and is only waste of time and means. Here it is necessary to make complete major maintenance of the engine before.

Below the list of checks, settings and the adjustments, capable to restore working parameters of the engine which has lost the initial characteristics is provided.

Preliminary settings

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Clear the storage battery and check its general condition (see. Weekly checks).
2. Check levels and a condition of all concerning functioning of the engine of liquids (see. Weekly checks).
3. Check a condition and effort of a tension of a driving belt of auxiliary units (see. Check of a condition and replacement of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units).
4. Replace spark plugs (see. Replacement of spark plugs).
5. Check a condition of a filtering element of an air purifier, in case of need make replacement (see. Replacement of a filtering element of an air purifier).
6. Check a condition of the fuel filter (see. Replacement of the fuel filter).
7. Check a condition of all hoses, try to reveal taking place leakages of liquids and to eliminate their reasons (see. Check of a condition of hoses, and identification of sources of leaks).
8. Check installations of turns and quality of a mix of idling (see. Check and adjustment of turns and quality of a mix of idling).

If performance listed above checks and adjustments does not give desirable result, make listed below procedure.

Secondary settings

In addition to procedures of primary settings execute the following:

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Check serviceability of functioning of system of a charge (see. Start and charge systems).
2. Check serviceability of functioning of system of ignition (see. Ignition system - petrol models).
3. Check serviceability of functioning of a power supply system (see. Head of the Power supply system and release).
4. Replace VV of a wire of system of ignition (see. Check of a condition of system of ignition).
