Experts on the Russian Autonews portal talked about common mistakes committed by private car drivers that could cause serious damage to a car engine
The experts said the classic internal combustion engines are all about. Experts recommend using an engine tachometer, as it allows monitoring of the engine’s operating systems.
And they recalled that the car should, after testing the engine’s natural system and its average rotation speed, use the natural system. They said that excessive pressure on the engine in the event of a high speed of rotation may lead to rapid wear and tear of the piston group and the need for general repair sometimes.
The slow rotation of the engine may also damage it. In this case, the temperature in the combustion chambers does not always reach its optimum values, which leads to the appearance of carbon deposits on the walls of the cylinders and spark plugs, which can cause engine failure.
And the gate reminded that the car needs to warm up the engine in any season. For example, you must wait one minute in the summer before starting to walk. In winter, it is necessary to wait for at least 3 minutes. This time is sufficient for the pump to distribute oil in the engine and parts that are subject to friction. The gate advises drivers to drive the car cautiously in the first kilometer or two of the drive so that the gearbox and other engine components get warm.
An overheating of the engine can also lead to many malfunctions. One of the most common of these mistakes is negligence in washing the refrigerant. Failure to maintain it may cause water to boil while parking the vehicle in traffic jams.
And errors in the maintenance of the coolant can lead to engine failure. Experts advise replacing the antifreeze liquid every year, as it loses its properties after 2 or 3 years. Water should not be added to the coolant, which could cause it to malfunction and then cause more serious engine problems.
Experts do not recommend using all types of cleaning additives (recombinant materials), as some may not be useful for the engine.
