Like any machine, cars also require proper maintenance, which ensures smooth operation. All cars come with a manual for their upkeep and maintenance, where advice and tips were provided according to the characteristics of that specific car. For this you need to know how to observe your car in good condition.
The different auto maintenance tasks:
The main tasks of your car maintenance, oil changes are inflation of tires, fuel and tuned. These tasks ensure the smooth operation of the vehicle and extend its life.
The oil change depends on the quality. A high quality oil like Mobil 1, should be changed every 10,000 km, a lower quality as the Mobil Super S10w-4, should be changed every 7,000 km. Therefore, consult the manufacturer’s recommendations to meet each oil change frequency.
Level of air in the tires:
The air pressure in tires is a very important aspect, although at first glance may seem a trivial detail, since it depends on the bearing of the vehicle.
The air pressure should be controlled at least once a month. A tire with air deficiency or excess have uneven wear, which can cause overheating of the same, which could cause a blowout, which represents a serious risk, especially at high speed and on the road. They can also increase fuel consumption because of the defective bearing.
To check the air pressure, it should be measured on cold tires, as the pressure increases when the car has been running. Usually pressure is estimated between 28 and 34 pounds, and the front tires with a little less pressure than the rear, depending on the weight of the car transport.
If you find a loss constant pressure in the tires, means there may be a problem in assembly of the wheel or have a puncture. In this case, perform the query with the mechanic.
It is advisable to seek to save fuel, not only because of the high cost of it, but to contribute to the environment, avoiding the generation of noxious gases.
To save fuel, use the car only when necessary, accelerate gently, brake smoothly, too, both increase fuel consumption. Do not force the engine. The economic speed road is 90 km/h.
When spark plugs are not in good condition, you will experience difficulties to start the car, the power will be low and fuel consumption will be excessive. Replacement is necessary.
The wires of the spark plugs cause the automobile damaged to walk hopping, so change them.
To tune the engine clean the fuel injectors, changing air filters and benzene, change the spark plugs.
Tuning frequency depends on the brand of vehicle.
Caring for a new car:
The friction of the pieces of the new engine is much greater than those of a motor and used. The adaptation of the pieces depends on the way of driving the vehicle during the first 1,500 km.
To achieve a good running engine avoid sudden acceleration, will not exceed the 3,000 rpm, three quarters of the maximum speed of the vehicle.
New tires will not acquire its maximum adhesion to about 500km of shooting, you must drive at moderate speed.
The brakes do not have the most ability of friction to the first 200km, so it is advisable to brake smoothly to prevent slipping. Of course, unless an emergency.
