Most of the procedures are for checking the state of parts, fluid levels, among others and I name them below:
Review of fluid levels and color of:
-> Brake League
-> Link of the clutch actuator (if it has hydraulic system)
-> Box oil (if the box is automatic).
-> Steering oil (if you have hydraulic power steering)
-> Windshield washer fluid.
In this procedure revision of levels it is important to complete up to the maximum mark of the element. In the cases of the brake league if I clarify that the level helps us to identify the degree of wear of brake pads and shoes, so, if there are no leaks, it is normal to see how the level goes down as increases the wear of these parts. When you are approaching the minimum brake level, it is important to check the brakes. It is not recommended to complete the link for the brake container because we would not know how to wear them.
For hydraulic steering, remember to complete with the cold engine. Usually when the hydraulic oil is heated, it expands. So be careful with this.
Rubber status check of:
-> Engine bases
-> Bases of the box
More than all this procedure is to look for cracks in the protective gums of dust, symptoms of expiration (cracking, small cracks, dryness) of gums of bushings. If it is possible to reactivate these gums with petroleum jelly or petrolatum, apply it in very little quantity to avoid sticking the powder.
Adjustment and revision of screws of:
-> Engine bases.
-> Bases of the Box.
-> Ball joints.
-> Bases and flexible exhaust pipes.
The adjustment of the tightening of the fastening screws helps to prevent fatigue wear of material by movement, apart from the fact that it keeps the steering, exhaust and the motor firm.
Review and / or change of:
-> Line gasoline filter.
-> Engine air filter.
-> Indoor air filter.
-> Engine oil.
Usually to change the air filter of the engine or the air inside it is necessary to check its status. If they look very black for the city or reddish for the field, it is advisable to change them. If there is no good air absorption, the spark plugs are carbonized and the engine runs abnormally.
The same fuel filter, usually depends on how contaminated your dealer's gasoline is. If the service station is up to date with its filters, our gas filter will last a long time. This is why we must remove it and see the color with which the gasoline comes out when we make a reverse blow to our filter.
For the oil change is more or less the same, you have to see more than all the color. There are good brands of oils that last much longer than the recommended 5mil km. Remember, dear reader, that today we are going for a world that is more aware of the environment, making less oil changes and consciously using the resources to take care of the planet, it is the only one we have.
Usually this procedure comes in the car service manual. It is a series of steps to be performed on the board that allow without the need for a scanner, turn off this service light.
It's all for the time friends, I'll be adding more muted service lights.
