Regular service

If from the moment of acquisition of the new car the owner carefully adheres to the schedule of routine maintenance, rather often to make checks of levels of liquids and a state subject to the increased wear of components, the power unit of the vehicle will reliably serve during many and many thousands of kilometers of a run. At the same time need for performance of additional repair and recovery work will be minimized.

On the other hand, it is very probable that in case of neglect performing procedures of regular routine maintenance, enough there will come soon the moment when efficiency of return of the engine considerably falls. Told in a special measure treats cases of acquisition of the car which was in the use which previous owner carelessly treated care of it. At the same time the new owner will not manage to avoid need of carrying out additional recovery work.

In case of suspicions on wear of the engine, a lot of useful information about a condition of its internal components it is possible to obtain, having carried out an inspection of compression pressure in cylinders (see the Head Remont of the engine, depending on car model). By results of check it is possible to estimate the volume of the forthcoming recovery work rather precisely. For example, if check of a compression revealed signs of considerable internal wear of the engine, implementation of the usual list of procedures of the service given below in this Chapter will not lead to restoration of parameters of the unit and will be only waste of time and means. Here it is necessary to make complete capital repairs of the engine before.

The list of the checks, settings and adjustments capable to restore working parameters of the engine which lost the initial characteristics is given below.

Preliminary settings


a) Clear the rechargeable battery and check its general state (see the Section Weekly checks);
b) Check levels and a condition of all liquids concerning functioning of the engine (see the Section Weekly checks).
c) Check a state and effort of a tension of a driving belt of auxiliary units (see the Section Check of a Condition of a Belt of the Drive of Auxiliary Units);
d) Replace spark plugs (see the Section Replacement of Spark Plugs - models of 1.3 l or Replacement of spark plugs - models of 1.6 l);
e) Check a condition of the filtering air cleaner element, in case of need make replacement (see the Section Replacement of the Filtering Air Cleaner Element);
f) Replace the fuel filter (see the Section Replacement of the Fuel Filter);
g) Check a condition of all hoses, try to reveal the leak of liquids taking place and to remove their causes (see the Section Check of a Condition of Hoses, and identification of sources of leaks);
If performance of the listed above checks and adjustments does not yield desirable result, make the listed below procedures.

Secondary settings


In addition to procedures of primary settings execute the following:

a) Check serviceability of functioning of system of a charge (see the Head Elektrooborudovaniye of the engine);
b) Check serviceability of functioning of system of ignition (see the Head Elektrooborudovaniye of the engine);
c) Check serviceability of functioning of a power supply system (see the Head the Power supply system).
