Trial runs


Devices and electric equipment


1. Check serviceability of functioning of monitors and electric equipment.
2. Make sure of adequacy of indications of measuring instruments, serially include everything consumers of the electric power.

Steering and suspension bracket


1. Try to reveal any sort the unusual feelings arising at driving. Estimate course stability of a vehicle.
2. Pay attention to unusual noise and the vibrations arising during movement and published by components of a suspension bracket and a steering drive.
3. Estimate controllability of the car - the steering wheel should rotate freely, without excessive люфта and breakthroughs. The suspension bracket during commission of turns and movement on roughnesses of a paving should not publish any extraneous noise.

Transmission line


1. Try to estimate efficiency of return of the engine and quality of transfer of rotation by components of coupling, a transmission and power shafts.
2. Pay attention to any unusual noise published by the engine and components of the transmission line.
3. Check stability of single turns of the engine. Estimate stability of turns during acceleration.
4. On models from RKPP make sure of smoothness and noiselessness of operation of coupling. The course of a pedal should not be excessive, and its squeezing to lead to emergence of extraneous sounds. Make sure of ease and noiselessness of inclusion of all transfers - the control lever should move freely, without breakthroughs and zakusyvaniye.
5. On models from AT make sure of serviceability of functioning of the lever of the selector and adequacy of switching of a box.
6. Listen to the sounds which are starting with a forward part of the car at a slow movement in a circle with a steering wheel turned out against the stop. Check should be made for both directions of turn of wheels. Existence of a metal gnash will testify to wear of hinges of equal angular speeds (CV JOINTS) of power shafts. In case of identification of signs of wear the defective CV JOINT is subject to replacement (see. Head Power shafts).

Check of serviceability of operation and efficiency of functioning of brakes


1. Make sure of preservation of course stability of the car during braking. Sharp braking should not cause premature blocking of wheels.
2. Make sure of absence of emergence of vibrations in a steering wheel during car braking.
3. Check serviceability of functioning of the parking brake. The car should keep reliably on a bias even at moderate raising of the lever.
