In this Management the term "maintenance" belongs to set of carried-out works, instead of to concrete procedure.

If from the moment of acquisition of the new car in accuracy to observe a maintenance order, to carry out frequent checks of level of liquids and the details subject to strengthened wear of what it is insistently reminded in the Management, at the engine high operational qualities and volume of additional works will remain will be minimized.

However if maintenance to carry out irregularly, operation of the engine, most likely, will be unsatisfactory. Especially it concerns the engine acquired not novoy the car which was not exposed to regular checks. In such cases besides periodic maintenance it is necessary to perform additional adjustment works.

Any kind of works on maintenance or search of the reason of abnormal operation of the engine should be begun with compression check in cylinders. Compression check in cylinders gives valuable information relatively the general condition of many details of the internal device of the engine which can be used as fundamental both for the current maintenance, and for repair procedures. If, for example, a compression such is that strong wear of the engine is obvious, routine maintenance will not lead to restoration of normal operational qualities and all works will be reduced to an excessive waste of time and money.

Below the list of the works which performance often leads to restoration of normal operation of the engine is provided.

Primary checks:

  – clear, examine and check the accumulator;
  – check level of oil and cooling liquid;
  – check a condition and a tension of a driving belt;
  – replace spark plugs;
  – check the air filter and replace it if it is necessary;
  – check the fuel filter;
  – check a condition of all hoses and examine them on leak existence.

If specified above operation appeared are not effective, execute secondary checks – all operations listed above, plus:

  – check system of additional charge of the accumulator;
  – check ignition system;
  – check a power supply system.
