Regular service

If from the moment of acquisition of the new car the owner carefully adheres to the routine maintenance schedule, often enough to make checks of levels of liquids and a condition of components subject to raised deterioration, the power unit of a vehicle will reliably serve during many and many thousand kilometres of run. Thus necessity for performance additional repair and a recovery work will be shown to a minimum.

On the other hand, it is rather probable that in case of neglect performance of procedures of regular routine maintenance, soon enough there will come the moment when efficiency of return of the engine considerably will fall. Told in a special measure concerns cases of acquisition of the car which was in the use which previous owner carelessly concerned care of it. Thus the new owner will not manage to avoid necessity of carrying out of an additional recovery work.

In case of occurrence of suspicions on deterioration of the engine, it is a lot of helpful information on a condition of its internal components it is possible to receive, having inspected компрессионного pressure in cylinders (the corresponding section of the Head engine Repair see). Based on the results of testing it is possible to estimate volume of a forthcoming recovery work precisely enough. For example, if compression check has revealed signs of considerable internal deterioration of the engine, performance of the usual list of procedures of the service resulted more low in the given Chapter, will not lead to restoration of parametres of the unit and is only waste of time and means. Here it is necessary to make before full major repairs of the engine (Removal and engine major repairs see).

The list of checks, options and the updatings, capable to restore working parametres of the engine which has lost the initial characteristic is more low resulted.

Preliminary options

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Clear the storage battery and check up its general condition (Weekly checks see).
2. Check up levels and a condition of all concerning functioning of the engine of liquids (Weekly checks see).

6. Check up a condition of all hoses, try to reveal taking place leaks of liquids and to eliminate their reasons (Check of a condition of hoses, and revealing of sources of leaks see).
7. Believe installations of turns of idling and prevention spontaneous останова the engine (Check and adjustment of turns of idling and prevention spontaneous останова the engine see).

If performance listed above checks and updatings does not give desirable result, make listed below procedure.

Secondary options

1. Check up serviceability of functioning of system of a charge (start and charge Systems see).
2. Check up serviceability of functioning of system of ignition (the preheat System - diesel models see).
3. Check up serviceability of functioning of the power supply system (see the Head of the Power supply system, decrease in toxicity and release of the fulfilled gases).
