Errors that can kill your car


Cars, as you know, not a luxury but a means of transportation. But ask any car owner, and he tells you about his anxious attitude to the "iron-friend."
What we just did not do to gloss over his favorite: buy blankets for the passenger compartment, wipe the glass panels and special doily, regularly visit the car wash and car wash ... However, ignorance of the simplest rules of operation can negate all our efforts. The drivers sometimes make stupid mistakes that lead to a reduction in term of operation of the car.

8 mistakes that can kill you car

You are exactly "kill" your car if:

1. Parking without using the hand brake

Yes, the little lever under the right arm, which you never use, is actually a very useful thing. Parking on a small slope or level ground without ruchnika, you move the entire load on the transmission. The device inside the transmission, which keeps the car in the balance, called "focus gears blocker gearbox - it is most susceptible to deterioration. If you start to use the hand brake when parking, you take off the load with the transmission and add many years of life to your car. Just do not forget to remove the car from "ruchnika" before re-start on the road.

2. Leave the slides on the brakes

Going down with the slides, and want to release the brakes and enjoy a quick ride. However, many cautious drivers prefer to creep down hills, constantly pressing the brake pedal. Such action leads to rapid wear of bearings. During the descent, alternately press and release the brakes to avoid overheating the brake pads.

3. Do not change the oil

Complete replacement of engine oil you need to carry out at least after every 5 thousand kilometers. The more often you change the oil, the longer you served for your car.

4. Washes the engine under pressure

It is quite understandable desire to wash dirty engine using large quantities of soapy water under pressure can damage your car. Agree, that dirty, but the engine is working much better clean, but deactivated. The engine of modern car - a complex mechanism, some fragile parts of which can easily damage the strong pressure of water. Instead of washing under stringent water pressure to regularly clean the engine with the help of napkins, rags and other cleaning products.

5. False start

Sit down in the car and the first case include climate control, heated seats, radio, and only then start to have a car? Wrong! With these actions, you expose the car engine wear. If you begin to create and then to include other devices, engine wear will be much smaller. Another common misconception drivers: progrevanie machines in winter supposedly helps the engine to function at low temperatures. This assertion is absolutely untrue. Despite the fact that the actual temperature of the engine actually increases, a sharp jump in temperature and lack of oil in the system when the driver begins "gazovat, standing on the spot, leads to rapid wear of engine.

6. Ignore the sounds of
Remember, once and for all: a strange, unfamiliar, foreign sound, which produces car certainly deserves your utmost attention. Creaking brake signal that it is time to change pads, metal skrezhetanie warned of the need to replace the brake disc, while ignoring all of these sounds may lead to an accident, and well, if it affected only the vehicle.

7. Do not go in the cabin

The rhythm of life forces us to eat on the go, as in the case of ?????????????? - right in the car. Doev regular baguette with cheese, do not rush throw the remains of food in the package and left in the cabin, even if you are late for an important meeting. Spend a few minutes and bring debris to the nearest urns, otherwise you risk once and for all to spoil the atmosphere in your own cabin. And no air fresheners will not be able to help you. In general, remember: in the car must be cleaned. Shake out the ashtrays, vacuum carpets, throw rubbish, clean the upholstery interior. The only way to combat bad smell - do not allow them to appear.

8. Traveled with an empty petrol tank

In approving that should never bring the level of petrol in the petrol tank to zero, there is a great truth: gasoline residue from the bottom of the tank into the engine and clog the fuel injector. An alternative view: the fuel injector does not clog, but causes direct damage to the fuel pump, cooling, which occurs at the expense of fuel. Interesting fact: Most modern cars have enough fuel for another 100 km after the fuel gauge needle stops at zero. Automakers call this extra amount of petrol "buffer zone" car. In American-made cars "buffer zone" - the largest in the world: the drivers need a "backlash" to get to the nearest gas station, which can be located quite far away. The German riders, by contrast, want to know the level of petrol in his car with an accuracy of almost until milliliter, and the "buffer zone" of the German automotive industry is very small.
