Pay Attention to Engine Maintenance

Jun. 01, 2020

The engine is the source of power and the core component of the truck. For the truck, it is actually as important as the human heart, so maintaining the engine is a very important task. The Hyundai Cylinder Head factory introduces you to:

1. Unscheduled maintenance

The regular maintenance of the engine is very important. Many professional maintenance masters said that the failures caused by poor engine maintenance account for 50% of the total failures in the vehicles they handle. It can be seen that engine maintenance can play a vital role in extending the service life of the vehicle. It is not only necessary to maintain the engine during the regular maintenance period. When driving through some particularly humid or dusty areas, it is necessary to do some inspection and maintenance of the relevant parts of the engine.

2. Deteriorated engine oil and poor oil filter

The oil quality of different grades of lubricating oil will change during use. After the vehicle travels for a certain distance, the performance will deteriorate, which may cause various problems for the engine. When the oil passes through the pores of the oil filter element, the solid particles and viscous substances in the oil are accumulated in the filter. If the filter is clogged, the engine oil cannot smoothly pass through the filter element, it will swell the filter element or open the safety valve, pass through the bypass valve, and still bring the dirt back to the lubricated part, which will accelerate the engine wear and accelerate the internal pollution. Therefore, regular replacement of the oil filter element is equally important. Do n’t add less oil, but do n’t add too much. The more expensive the international famous brand oil, the better. The oil suitable for your car is the best.

3. The air filter is clogged

The air intake system of the engine is mainly composed of an air filter element and an air intake pipe. According to different usage conditions, the air filter element should be cleaned regularly. The air filter element should be replaced with a new one after cleaning three times. The cleaning cycle can be determined by the air quality in the daily driving area. It is also important to purchase genuine air filters from original manufacturers of good quality.

4. The intake pipe is too dirty

If the vehicle is often driven in a road area with a lot of dust and poor air quality, you should pay attention to cleaning the air intake duct to ensure smooth air intake. The intake duct is very important for the normal operation of the engine. If the intake duct is too dirty, it will lead to a decrease in efficiency, which will prevent the engine from operating within the normal output power range and aggravate the wear and aging of the engine. Try to avoid areas with a lot of dust as much as possible. At the same time, the air conditioner should also be replaced.

5. Excessive sludge in the crankcase

During the operation of the engine, the high-pressure unburned gas, acid, moisture, sulfur, and nitrogen oxides in the combustion chamber enter the crankcase through the gap between the piston ring and the cylinder wall, mixing it with the metal powder generated by the wear of the parts together, they form sludge. A small amount of sludge can be suspended in the oil. When the amount is large, it will be separated from the oil, blocking the filter and the oil hole, causing difficulty in engine lubrication, and thus aggravating the wear of the engine. Selecting high-quality fuel and synthetic diesel engine lubricants are particularly important to reduce sludge generation. Therefore, it is recommended that vehicle owners purchase synthetic diesel engine lubricants and fuels that are suitable for your car through formal channels as much as possible. In addition, please check the oil level of your car frequently, and replenish it as soon as possible.

6. Improper maintenance of the fuel system

The maintenance of the fuel system includes replacing the fuel filter according to the maintenance requirements, removing the sediment in the fuel filter, and properly maintaining the fuel tank and the pipeline.

7. Rusting and scaling of the water tank

To avoid the rust and scaling of the engine water tank, it is necessary to pay attention to the selection of coolant. Some car owners do not pay attention to the use and quality of the coolant, and usually, only ordinary water is added to the water tank. The most common problems in the cooling system are rust, scaling, and corrosion. The main reason for this is the lack of good coolant. A good coolant not only has a low freezing point, but also has additional components for various functions, which can inhibit foam, rust, electrolysis, and waterproof scale, etc., so we still remind the majority of vehicles to carefully choose the coolant that is beneficial to the water tank.

8. Poor cooling system

The OEM SUZUKI Alternator factory believes that: The most common engine failures, such as piston pulling cylinders, cylinder cavitation, severe noise caused by rough work, and accelerated power drop, are due to abnormal operating temperature and pressure Too large, caused by poor cooling system conditions. Poor cooling system conditions will directly cause the engine to fail to operate at normal temperatures, which in turn will result in the above-mentioned serious malfunctions. Therefore, it is necessary to regularly use the strong and efficient cleaning agent of the water tank to clean the rust and corrosion in the water tank and the cooling system and then add the appropriate cooling liquid. Only in this way can the engine work properly and the overall life of the water tank and engine be extended.

Only regular maintenance of various parts can extend the life of the vehicle.
