If these six fluids are not replaced in time, the car will be scrapped in advance!
If you use the power steering oil for too long or with poor quality, it will affect your driving feel and increase the steering force. Take an exaggerated example: in the past, a cannon could easily turn the direction with one hand. Now I need two hands to "pull" the steering wheel and eliminate mechanical faults. Most of it is because there is a problem with the booster oil. For novices, it may be difficult to feel the change of steering force, so I'll go directly to "see". The power steering oil is usually in the engine compartment. Find the "steering wheel" sign below, which is the power steering oil. Check whether the oil position is too low, or put forward some oil to see the color. Normal booster oil is generally transparent and the color is red. If it is cloudy and black, it should be changed. Oh, by the way, only mechanical hydraulic power and electronic hydraulic power can get power oil. Pure electronic power is not needed~
If the brake oil is not replaced for a long time, the braking effect will be affected, and in serious cases, the brake will fail. When to change the brake oil, we usually do it according to the cycle specified in the maintenance manual. However, the maintenance manuals are generally "conservative". You can adjust them appropriately according to the intensity of your car. For example, we usually drive very sparingly, so we can run 10000 kilometers more than the specified, which is no problem. As for how to replace the brake oil, cannon suggests that you should go to a reliable garage to complete it. After all, the actual operation is very difficult, and there may be hidden dangers.
The frequency of changing transmission oil depends on whether your car is in automatic or manual gear. Automatic transmission oil usually does a lot of work. In addition to lubrication and heat dissipation, it also needs to use oil pressure to shift. If it is not changed for a long time, it will lead to slow shift and a sense of frustration (double clutch frustration has nothing to do with this ~). The manual transmission oil is mainly used for lubrication, and the replacement time is usually longer ~ whether it is manual or automatic, you can refer to the maintenance manual or that sentence. What the manual says is conservative, and we can adjust it appropriately according to our driving habits.
Antifreeze is used to cool the engine. Once there is a problem, it is easy to "boil the water tank" in summer or freeze in winter, resulting in the car lying down and unable to drive. In case of a new car, the problem of antifreeze is generally not considered; The driving time is quite long, or the "freezing point" of antifreeze should be tested for used cars to see if it can achieve the purpose of "no freezing in winter and no boiling in summer". Antifreeze should form the habit of regular inspection, especially for old or used cars (3 ~ 5 years). Open the engine compartment, you can see the antifreeze pot: first, compare the scale line above to see whether the antifreeze is within a reasonable range. If it is lower than "Min", you should add some of the same model. If the situation is urgent, you can also add some purified water or distilled water appropriately, not tap water or mineral water. The second is to check the "freezing point" and "boiling point", which is checked by professional repair shops with the help of professional instruments. If the "freezing point" of antifreeze is too high and the "boiling point" is too low, replace it as a whole.
