The intervals of routine maintenance of the car offered in the present Section are calculated on independent implementation of all procedures by the owner of the vehicle. Duration of intervals was defined proceeding from conditions of daily operation of the car. Constantly to support the vehicle in dive of a form, some of procedures for desire of the owner can be carried out in more intensive mode. Authors of the present manual are sure that receiving from the power unit of the car and its other knots and systems of the maximum return can achieve only on condition of a conscientious attitude of the owner to care of the vehicle. It is worth to remember as well about maintenance of a trade dress of the car on a case of its resale.

At operation of the car in the conditions of strongly dusty area, frequent towage of the trailer or continuous movement in an intense city cycle, intervals of performing procedures of routine maintenance have to be whenever possible reduced to a minimum.

Servicing of the new vehicle has to be made in the conditions of a workshop service center of the trade mission of the company manufacturer of the car in order to avoid violation of factory guarantee certificates.

This Chapter was formed with the purpose to help the owner of the car to support the vehicle in a condition of the maximum readiness for operation, receiving from it effective return with observance of requirements to profitability and safety.

At the beginning of the Head the schedule of routine maintenance of the car is provided. Below the Sections devoted to a detailed statement of an order of performance of each of procedures of service separately are offered attention of the reader. Material of Sections included descriptions of visual checks, adjustments, procedures of removal and installation of components, and also various useful tips and recommendations. The illustrations given above with the image of types of a motive compartment, suspension brackets and steering will help the reader to deal with placement on the car of the components which are subject to service.

Serving the car according to the kilometrazhno-time schedule, and following the detailed recommendations given below, the reader will receive the accurate action program capable to provide long duration and reliability of service of the vehicle. Remember that this program is made on a complex basis and implementation only of its separate points with neglect others will not result in desirable result.

In process of performance of service of the car the reader will soon be convinced that many procedures can, and have to be united in the general groups in view of similarity of the nature or proximity of an arrangement of components. For example, if the car for any reason is lifted above the ground, it is necessary to take an opportunity and at the same time to check a condition of components of system of production of the fulfilled gases, a suspension bracket and steering.

The first step of service of the vehicle is always self-training of the contractor. Attentively get acquainted with material of the present Chapter, then make the list of the components needing attention, prepare the necessary tool and outline the short plan of the forthcoming works. In case of emergence resistant to solution of problems ask for the help specialists of car service.
