In terms of car maintenance, car owners have their own habit of maintaining their cars. Generally, they change oil, three filters and other consumables, and then wash and wax their cars often. In fact, this is basic car maintenance. Cars have many fragile parts, if they are not checked, repaired and maintained frequently.
It may break down on the way. Isn't it painful. Let's introduce the places that are easy to ignore in car maintenance~
Hidden danger of steering rod deformation
When parking, if the steering wheel is not aligned, the wheel will drag the steering rod and cannot return to its position. At the same time, the gear of the steering wheel and the rack of the steering rod are also under stress, which will cause accelerated aging or deformation of these parts over time. During maintenance, this part must be carefully checked. The method is very simple: hold the pull rod and shake it hard. If there is no shaking, it means that everything is normal. Otherwise, replace the ball head or pull rod assembly.
Car owners have been staring at the brake shoes and pay little attention to the brake disc. Over time, it will directly affect the braking. If there are clear scratches on the brake disc, it is recommended to replace it with a new one. Generally speaking, the brake disc should also be replaced after the brake shoe is replaced 2 to 3 times.
The exhaust pipe rusts and the sound becomes louder
The car's exhaust pipe is rusted, corroded and broken, resulting in increased noise and power loss. The main reason is that it is not maintained. If the muffler changes color in the exhaust pipe, and the exhaust pipe enters water when driving on deep-water roads, and then the engine shuts down, then this damage is fatal to the car. Therefore, the exhaust pipe is one of the easily damaged parts under the vehicle. Don't forget to take a look during maintenance, especially the exhaust pipe with three-way catalyst. It is recommended that the new car should be maintained once after the license plate is installed, and it should be maintained every six months at ordinary times.
Insufficient lubrication of generator bearings
Automobile generator is an important part of automobile electrical appliances. Its function is two parts: to supply the needs of each electric part; Charge the battery. If you want to keep the generator in a constant and stable power generation state during driving, you should properly adjust the tightness of the generator belt, fix the calibration screw as needed, and pay attention to the wear degree of the bearing. If you find insufficient lubrication, you can drip oil from the mouth of the oil cup. Generally speaking, when the car travels 60000 to 80000 kilometers, check and repair the generator once.
Shock absorber affects driving stability
Shock absorber is a vulnerable part in the process of automobile use. The working quality of shock absorber will directly affect the stability of automobile driving and the service life of other parts. If the vehicle vibrates violently during slow driving and emergency braking, it indicates that there is a problem with the shock absorber. Of course, due to the influence of different factors such as bearing capacity, service time, road conditions and driving methods, the shock absorber will attenuate to varying degrees.
Improper maintenance of wiper reduces service life
If you drive in the heavy rain, the unclear vision must be the hidden danger of * * and the importance of the wiper appears. If the wiper can't wipe off the rain well, it will bring great danger to the driving. As the material of the wiper blade is mainly rubber, which will age and harden over a long time, the owner can buy a rubber curing agent from the automotive supplies store and spray it on the rubber part of the wiper blade every month, which can prolong the service life of the rubber strip by at least half. If the blade is aged, hardened or cracked, it shall be replaced in time. The work of replacing blades is not complicated and you can do it yourself.
The instrument panel should also be cleaned according to different places. In order to improve the brightness of the instrument panel, after cleaning, add a few drops of walnut oil or olive oil to the rag, and then polish the parts.
