In this section you will find useful information on vehicle maintenance and repairing

Useful information for our clients. Do your homework.

Today vehicles are high-tech miracles with digital panels, oxygen sensors, computers and other complex mechanisms. They serve better, longer and more effectively than earlier made models.

But when we need repair, nothing changes. Several advice that you can use in the future:

  1. Do homework before transition of the car to repair.
  2. Read the maintenance guide of your car and get known its main components.
  3. Follow recommendations of the manufacturer about terms of car service.
  4. Fill in the card of technical service.

 

Preventive measures.To avoid unforeseen expenses.

You know your car better than anybody else. Every day you drive it and hear all its sounds, feel, when everything is fine. Therefore always pay attention to unusual sounds, noise, vibrations.

Examine your car as often as possible. Possible signs of malfunction:

Unusual sounds, smells, liquid drops under the car, smoke, alarm signs on the dashboard, inexact rates of a manometer.

Deterioration of acceleration or operation of the engine, increase of fuel consumption, change of liquids level.

Worn-out tires, belts, hoses.

Problems during driving, vibrations at braking, difficulties in control.

Pay attention when does the problem appear:

Does the problem appear periodically or constantly?

Does the problem appear when the engine is cold or warmed?

At movement on any speed?

Only at dispersal?

At a stop?

At gear shifting?

When did you notice the problem for the first time?

When you visit our garage be ready to describe symptoms of the arisen breakage:

Make the list of malfunctions that you can give to our master.

Don't give up to a temptation and don't insist on a certain repair in advance. Behave as with your doctor, tell, where, what and how it hurts, it will allow to diagnose correctly the breakage and to select right repair.

Participate in repair process - ask questions.

Ask as many questions, as you need

If you don't know or don't understand anything, please ask.

Don't hurry the master. Before the beginning of any works the master will contact you and give you more information on breakage, sequence of repair and expenses.

Before departure be convinced that you completely understand what was repaired, what works were carried out, for what and how much was paid.

Don't forget to leave your phone number that we could contact with you.

According to the latest researches, 5 percent of all road accidents happen because of wrong care of the car. This simple schedule of preventive checks will considerably prolong vehicle service life, will provide safe driving and even will be useful for environment.

- Revise obligatory the maintenance guide of a vehicle, there the service schedule will be specified for your car. Requirements can vary depending on the manufacturer of a vehicle. A good rule is that the oil filter is necessary to change regularly each 5000-7000 kilometers.
- Check all liquids (brake liquid, steering booster, transmission, a washer of glass and antifreeze). These liquids play an important role in safety of your car and efficiency of its work.
- Check up pressure in tires. Deflated tires can lower efficiency of fuel use. The rubber rest should be checked up once a month.
- Try to look after the engine. Dirty spark plugs or clogged fuel injector can lower the efficiency of fuel consumption for more than for 30 percent.
- Often check and grease suspension bracket elements. It will strongly increase terms of operation of your car.
- Check the accumulator, cables and connections. If there is a need, remove the appeared corrosion. Accumulator liquid also should be checked and filled in case of it is absence.
- Check the light system (upper and lower beam, turn signals, back lamps, signals of braking, a backing and fog lamps).
- Check screen wiper elastic bands, there should not be cracks and splits on them. Replace them at least once a year or more often if there are problems of glass cleaning.
- Periodically check engine belts. Worn-out belts can worsen operational characteristics and even result in full worthlessness of the engine. Check existence of cracks or absent bit sections.
- Check the air filter of system. It is necessary to check the air filter each time when you replace the oil filter in the engine. This system guarantees that the car will work at full capacity.

Information for travelers. Prepare for safe travels.

Is your car ready to a long journey?

            The majority of mechanical damages can be connected with bad service of the car. According to the statistical data, one of the most frequent mechanical breakages is overheat of the engine. Problems with overheat of the engine would not appear, the main thing is to watch some simple things such as: antifreeze level, correct belt tension, integrity of hoses and radiator.

Before a trip check pressure in tires. Not pumped or over pumped tire can burst in the way, that will lead to very sad consequences, check all external lights, your safety depends on the road depends on it.

 Discussion topic for each driver. Fuel prices.

Advice on fuel saving:

  1. The unoriginal or broken stopper of a fuel tank can lead to fuel evaporation.
  2. Not pumped tires have the same effect as driving with the switched-on hand brake, consumption can increase approximately on 0.5 liters for each 100 kilometers.
  3. Worn-out spark plugs: the vehicle can have four, six or even eight spark plugs which give a spark nearly 2 million times for 1000 kilometers, dirty plugs can be the reason of bad operation of the engine and increase fuel consumption. New spark plugs should correspond to recommendations of the manufacturer.
  4. Dirty air filter – the air filter clogged by dirt, dust and insects, reduces air hit in the engine and leads to a "great" fuel mix. Too big ratio of fuel to air essentially reduces engine capacity. Replacement of the air filter can increase efficiency of fuel use to 10 percent.

 

Rules of driving for fuel saving:

  1. Don’t be an aggressive driver - aggressive driving can reduce efficiency of fuel use to more than 33 percent.
  2. Avoid the engine idling - you stand at the same place and fuel is spent. For engine warming only several minutes are enough.
  3. Observe a high-speed mode - fuel consumption sharply increases when speed of the car exceeds 100 km/h (on different models differently). In order that to support constant speed on the road it is recommended to use cruise control.
