Routine maintenance of the car - diesel models

Schedule of routine maintenance

Intervals of routine maintenance of the car offered in the present section are calculated on independent performance of all procedures by the owner of a vehicle. Duration of intervals was defined proceeding from a condition of daily operation of the car. Constantly to support a vehicle in the dives of a form some of procedures at will of the owner can be carried out in more intensive mode. Originators of the real Management are sure that receiving from the power unit of the car and its other knots and systems of the maximum return can achieve only under condition of a conscientious attitude of the owner to care of the vehicle. It is worth to remember as well about maintenance of a trade dress of the car on a case of its resale.

At car operation in the conditions of strongly dusty district, frequent towage of the trailer or continuous moving in an intense city cycle, intervals of performance of procedures of routine maintenance should be whenever possible reduced to a minimum.

Servicing of a new vehicle should be made in the conditions of a workshop service center of the trade mission of the company manufacturer of the car in order to avoid violation of factory guarantee certificates.

Through each 20 000 km (12 000 miles) run

In addition to the checks listed in the previous subsection:
•  At the corresponding complete set check a condition of a coolant of central air of air (see. Check of a condition of a coolant of central air of air).
•  Check installations of turns of idling and turns of prevention spontaneous останова the engine (see. Check and adjustment of turns of idling and prevention spontaneous останова engine).
•  Check a condition of components and connecting hoses of system of decrease in toxicity of the fulfilled gases (see. Check of serviceability of functioning of systems of decrease in toxicity of the fulfilled gases).
•  Check a condition of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units, in case of need make its replacement (see. Check of a condition and replacement of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units).
•  Grease the mechanism of management with a coupling drive (see. Greasing of the mechanism of a drive of switching off of coupling).
•  Check serviceability of functioning of the parking brake (see. Check of serviceability of functioning and adjustment of the parking brake).
•  Make trial runs of the car (see. Trial runs).

Through each 30 000 km (18 000 miles) run

In addition to the checks listed in the previous subsection:
•  Make replacement of the fuel filter (see. Replacement of the fuel filter).
•  Make ATF replacement (see. AT transmission liquid replacement).
•  Check a condition of blocks/boots of brake mechanisms of lobbies and back wheels, in case of need make replacement (see. Check of a condition of blocks of brake mechanisms of lobbies and back wheels).

Through each 60 000 km (36 000 miles) run

•  Make check of a condition and, in case of need, replacement of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units on models with manual adjustment of a tension of a belt (see. Check of a condition and replacement of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units).
•  Make replacement of hydraulic LHM liquid and returnable filters (see. Replacement of hydraulic LHM liquid and returnable filter).
•  Make replacement of the air filter (see. Replacement of a filtering element of an air purifier).
•  Check RKPP transmission oil level, in case of need make the corresponding adjustment (see. Check of level of transmission oil (model with RKPP)).
•  Check a condition of brake supports, disks and hydraulic hoses (see. Check of a condition of brake supports, disks and hydraulic hoses).
•  Make replacement of a belt of a drive of GRM (see. Replacement of a belt of a drive of GRM) *.
•  Grease all locks and loops (see. Greasing of locks and loops).

In spite of the fact that according to the schedule of routine maintenance replacement of a gas-distributing belt should be made through each 120 000 km (72 000 miles) run, originators of the real Management recommend to cut this interval by half for the cars maintained in the conditions of increased intensity. Remember that the damages of the engine connected with an exit of a belt out of operation in operating time can lead to incommensurably big expenses!

Through each 120 000 km (72 000 miles) run

In addition to the checks listed in the previous subsection:
•  Make replacement of a belt of a drive of GRM (see. Replacement of a belt of a drive of GRM).
•  Make check of a condition and, in case of need, replacement of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units on models with automatic adjustment of a tension of a belt (see. Check of a condition and replacement of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units).

Time in two years (regardless of run size)

•  Make replacement of cooling liquid (see. Replacement of cooling liquid).

General information

This Head was made to help on purpose to the owner of the car to support the vehicle in a condition of the maximum readiness for operation, receiving from it effective return with observance of requirements to profitability and safety.

At the beginning of Head the schedule of routine maintenance of the car is provided. The sections devoted to a detailed statement of an order of performance of each of procedures of service separately below are offered. Descriptions of visual checks, adjustments, procedures of removal and installation of components are included in a material of sections, and also various good advice and recommendations. Given above an illustration with the image of types of an impellent compartment, suspension brackets and a steering will help the reader to deal with placement on the car of components subject to service.

Serving the car according to the kilometrazhno-time schedule, and following the detailed recommendations provided below, the reader will receive the accurate action program, capable to provide long duration and reliability of service of his vehicle. Remember that this program is made on a complex basis and performance only with neglect others will not lead its separate points to desirable result.

In process of performance of service of the car the reader will soon be convinced that many procedures can, and should, to be united in the general groups in view of similarity of the nature or proximity of an arrangement of components. For example, if the car for any reason is lifted over the earth, it is necessary to use a case and at the same time to check a condition of components of system of production of the fulfilled gases, a suspension bracket and a steering.

The first step in vehicle service always is self-preparation of the performer of works. Attentively familiarize with a material of the present Chapter, then make the list of components needing attention, prepare the necessary tool and outline the short plan of the forthcoming works. In case of emergence resistant to solution of problems address for the help to specialists of car-care center.
