Pay Attention to These Eight Points when Using a Car in Summer!

Jul. 29, 2020

In summer, the temperature rises, and the hidden dangers of car use also increase a lot. Today, China TOYOTA distributor supplier will take you to sort out the problems that may arise in summer cars.

1. Tire pressure problem

Due to the principle of thermal expansion and contraction, many people believe that the tire pressure of the vehicle should be lowered in summer to ensure driving safety. But doing so may backfire. If the tire pressure is too low, it will increase the contact area between the tire and the ground, making it easier to increase the temperature of the wheel, and the probability of a tire blowout will increase. The correct way is to set the appropriate tire pressure according to the vehicle's instructions.

2. Spontaneous combustion

Under normal circumstances, the older the vehicle, the more likely it is to cause spontaneous combustion due to short circuits. If you smell mushy during driving, you must stop and check. There is also a private modification of the car, which may exceed the line load and cause a short circuit to catch fire. In this case, even if you buy spontaneous combustion insurance, you will not get compensation. If spontaneous combustion occurs in a new car, then you have to find the manufacturer for theoretical theory.

3. Use of air conditioner

After the sun is exposed, many people will turn on the air conditioner immediately after starting the car. This is a very incorrect approach. Not only the cooling effect is not good, but the pressure on the engine is also increased. The correct approach is to open the door for ventilation first and use the door fan method to fan out the hot air in the car before turning on the air conditioner. In addition, remember to turn off the air conditioner before turning off the vehicle to prevent the engine load from becoming too large before the next start.

4. Prevent "boiling"

The high temperature in summer, coupled with long-term driving, may cause the water temperature in the water tank to rise sharply, and it is likely to "boil". If this is the case, it will be serious. Therefore, when driving, pay attention to the water temperature gauge. If there is any abnormality, be sure to park in a cool place to check.

5. Prevent "explosion"

Many people leave dangerous items like lighters in their cars at will, and under the sun, they will explode and cause unnecessary losses. In addition to lighters, there are perfumes, hair sprays, power banks, and more.

6. Do not drive in slippers

In summer, many people want to be convenient and cool and drive directly in slippers. This is a big safety hazard. In the event of an emergency, the slipper does not follow your foot when you step on the accelerator or brake, it is likely to delay the brake timing and cause a traffic accident.

7, sunglasses essential

The sunlight is too strong to see the road conditions clearly. At this time, you need a pair of good quality polarized sunglasses to filter out the strong light and improve driving safety. In addition, you can improve your appearance and do two things with one stone.

8. Insulation film

In summer, it is very important to have a good heat insulation film, which has the functions of preventing damage from splashed glass, anti-ultraviolet, and anti-glare. At the same time, it also reduces the cooling time of the air conditioner and reduces energy consumption.
