Check 10 items of maintenance. Car maintenance should pay attention during the Spring Festival.
The Spring Festival is coming soon. In the cold winter, how to maintain the car has become a topic of concern to car owners. After the vehicle has passed the warranty period, some faults will inevitably occur. Cars need “three-point repair, seven-point maintenance”, which is to find and eliminate some initial, potential, and hidden faults through active inspection and maintenance. Especially in the cold winter after the sudden drop in temperature, the maintenance of the car is very important. Experienced people in the industry believe that as long as you can do the following 10 car maintenance, I believe that your car will ride through the cold winter.
1, lubricating oil
In winter, the lubrication requirements of the car are high. If the oil is used in summer, it must be replaced. For longer use, the color is black, and the oil with poor adhesion should be replaced to ensure the smooth start of the engine.
The amount of antifreeze must be appropriate. The freezing point and type of antifreeze should be paid attention to in different regions and different models. The antifreeze used for more than two years should be replaced. The mixed antifreeze must be replaced in one year. Note that products of different brands and different models should not be mixed.
3, the battery
The electrolyte in the battery can not be deficient. It is better to keep the plate flooded by 10 mm. Check the specific gravity of the electrolyte and keep the charge. If the battery is not fully charged, it will easily break in the cold.
Pay attention to whether the brake fluid is sufficient, whether the quality is deteriorated, and should be added or replaced as needed. Pay attention to whether the brake is weakened, deviation, high-speed pedaling force of the brake pedal and the position of the wheel lock when braking. Clean the piping section of the entire brake system if necessary.
5, four wheel alignment
Winter roads are prone to ice and snow, while rubber, metal, plastic and other materials become hard at low temperatures, the control system also becomes heavier, the road feeling is weakened, and the four-wheel alignment is not easy to affect safety.
In winter, the rubber becomes hard and relatively brittle. Not only does the friction system decrease, but it is also easier to leak and tie the tires than in other seasons. In the winter, the inclusions in the tread are often cleaned. Try to avoid using tires that have been replenished more than once. It is also not negligible to replace tires with large wear and different brands and different patterns.
7, warm air
Check the heater line and fan, especially pay attention to whether the defrosting air outlet under the windshield is normal, whether the heat is enough, and there is a problem in the windshield defrosting air outlet. In winter, driving will bring many troubles and unsafe factors.
8, glass cleaning fluid
The use of glass cleaning in winter is obviously less than other seasons, but it can not be ignored. Some people use water and clean water instead of other seasons, but in the winter, the substitutes often freeze, so it is not allowed in winter. Use, be sure to put on the glass cleaning solution that is not afraid of freezing, or add alcohol or white wine to the water to lower the freezing point.
9, air conditioning
Winter air conditioning is not used, but in the winter must check whether the air conditioning system is clean, there is no blockage of water, and must be opened for about 5 minutes a week, so that the parts can be lubricated to prevent the hose from hardening.
After the winter, the number of times of freezing and brushing the vehicle will be reduced, so waxing at the beginning of winter is the best strategy for maintaining the paint. In addition, the waxed body is not easy to get wet, and it is not easy to show condensation in the winter.
