Running a new car

Along with the purchase of a new car owner immediately raises a number of questions. For example, you start to operate the machine, to serve for a long time and remain reliable? In other words – if there are any features of the running of the new car? Generally, the running-called special mode of operation of the new equipment. This is due to the fact that in the process of working arrangements burnished parts to one another, the individual components during operation may slightly change its location (professionals call this process is still lapping), and with increased wear of the new units. In the case with the new car we can talk about how to begin to exploit the new engine, new transmission, new wheels and tires and other equipment and systems. It needs in principle to a new modern automobile technology in any particular mode of operation? Despite the seeming obviousness of the answer to this question is no consensus on this issue is not even the experts. And that’s why.
Firstly, the accuracy of manufacture of individual parts for vehicles is currently rather high. Especially this distinguished German and Japanese automakers. So, according to many, some special lapping or burnishing them is not required. Secondly, each new internal combustion engine before the misses with the motor compartment cars being tested on the stand. In addition, each car is also being tested, which suggests that the break-in process was carried out by the manufacturer. Third, the consequences of improper themselves break power unit will eventually reduce to increased oil consumption. There is no evidence of exit from the system of the internal combustion engine due to improper break-in and guaranteed life (usually – it is 100 000 km) it will work even if the break in his wrong. In addition, manufacturers of motor vehicles themselves in the technical documentation for new vehicles directly claim that the machine does not require special run-in and they immediately can be operated normally. But their arguments, there are those professionals who are in favor of the need for the running of the new car. Besides the already mentioned lapping cylinder-piston group, there are other considerations. There is no denying the fact that the factory running of new technology – it is much less than the traditional couple of thousand kilometers of careful driving. Consequently, even well-fitting to the details of the plant will anyway get ground for some time, which may not be visible to the naked eye but which, nevertheless, a considerable amount of chip is the smallest in the engine oil. If it is not replaced in time, it may well affect the operation of the engine. Moreover, in violation of the manufacturer’s operating regulations, jamming of engine parts it often happens in the new units, which is an additional proof for the necessity of the running.
The data that neobkatannogo engine life is only a third of the resource engine, run-in in accordance with all the rules and guidelines. So on which side the truth? As it happens almost always turn out to be the right kind of both sides. Even in Soviet times, it was believed that the running machine -. It is 5 or even 10 thousand km oil change after every 1000 km (or more often), during which a new car should be operated in a special mode. Naturally, the need for a run-in has long disappeared. However, long and serviceable car service depends on compliance with the manufacturer’s instructions in this regard. And most of them are considered to be sufficient to mention only in the technical documentation of the need for compliance with the “gentle treatment”. What is meant by this and how long it should be done? There are some general tips that are not only not hurt, and definitely will extend the service life of all the systems, if they are to comply with in respect of the new vehicle. They relate to a variety of systems. The power unit (internal combustion engine) – it is, of course, the main mechanism in the car. The following guidelines are applicable in relation to the running of the new (or last overhaul): – Avoid sudden acceleration; – Compliance with speed limits will prevent jamming of the new engine; – duration of the “gentle treatment” usually specified in the manual (usually 300 – 1 500 km) – Avoid driving at the same speed with the same RPM for a long time; – it is unacceptable that the engine for a long time worked at idle (except the required warm-up) – Do not tow (including trailers) and a large load; – before and after the running-change oil and filters; – after running load mode to increase gradually. To earn extra new brake pads, you will need somewhere three hundred kilometers. At this time it is not necessary to brake sharply and otherwise seriously their burden.
Running transmissions require that switching to produce seamlessly. Jerks and jolts of the lever should be avoided. Otherwise synchronizers damage can be quite probable. Of course, these tips are relevant for the entire life of the vehicle. However, during the first thousand kilometers should be especially careful. With regard to the running of tires can be a long talk. If we confine ourselves a few tips, you should remember the following. In the new car tires always a protective lubricant layer which is on the form of the casting. This grease reduces some traction tread with roadbed. That she has worn off, you need to drive a couple of hundred kilometers (for summer tires – less winter – more). This should avoid abrupt maneuvers and braking. Vehicles with a diesel engine run-in much the same. Is it necessary to follow the work of glow plugs and start the engine only after the light goes out “candle light work”, while they themselves try to keep pace minimal. In conclusion, it must be emphasized once again – running a new modern car in the sense that invest in this concept in the Soviet era, is no longer required. But the first couple of thousand kilometers a new car, regardless of the manufacturer, should be operated accurately, avoiding critical loads, aggressive driving style and other unwanted things.
