This Head is made to help the amateur mechanic to support the car in a condition of maximum efficiency of operational parameters, profitability, safety and reliability. Further you will find the full schedule of procedures of routine maintenance of the car, and also the Sections devoted to the description of service of its separate systems in Head. Descriptions of visual checks, adjustments are included in Sections, replacements of components and other good advice. Illustrations with types of an impellent compartment and the car bottom (will help to define a site of separate components see. Undressed the Schedule of routine maintenance). Serving the car according to the kilometrazhno-time schedule and following the detailed remarks provided below, you receive the accurate program of the service, capable to provide long and reliable service of your car. Remember that this plan is exhaustive, and performance of its separate points and neglect others will not give expected result.

Current leaving

In the course of car service you are convinced soon that is possible - and it is necessary - to combine many procedures in view of similarity of actions on their performance. For example, if the car is raised over the earth for chassis greasing, follows at the same time while you are under the car, to examine system of production of the fulfilled gases, a suspension bracket, system of a steering and fuel system. If wheels are removed for carrying out other works, there is a sense to check brake mechanisms. And at last, suppose, that you had to borrow or hire a dinamometrichesky key. Even if it is necessary to you only to tighten a spark plug, you can check at the same time efforts of a tightening of so many critical nuts and bolts, on time how many will suffice.

The first step in implementation of the program of maintenance of the car is self-preparation. Attentively study materials of all Sections relating to the forthcoming procedures, then prepare all necessary materials, the equipment and tools. If you are afraid to face problems at performance of any concrete works, consult at the expert or at the person who was already carrying out this work.

HUNDRED in addition, at each service, by means of the device for poll of memory of malfunctions read out data from memory of malfunctions of electronic monitors of the engine, ABS, a safety cushion and anticreeping system. It is for this purpose recommended to address through certain periods on HUNDRED. Thus it is necessary to mean that some malfunctions, for example the failed sensors of a control system of the engine, do not lead to appreciable decrease in characteristics of the car. Monitors have a mode of emergency functioning or work at the average values of parameters brought in memory that cannot be revealed by the driver. Poll of memory of malfunctions is carried out via the diagnostic socket.

Service is carried out according to a certain term and car run.
