Selection on lubrication oil and maintenance on long-time no use cars
It is well known that auto repair and maintenance service in 4s shop or garage takes more than that by DIY auto repair and maintenance. Actually, I do benefit from my DIY auto repair and maintenance with and without OBD2 scanner that are suitable for DIYers.
As I have so many experience, so I am going to share with you one by one, or maybe two aspects is OK. And today is mainly on maintenance on long-time no use cars and selection on lubrication oil, actually aiming at choosing good quality one.
Maintenance on long-time no use cars first:
Keys and engine inspection
People might have the opinion that if you do not use one thing, it will be not something wrong it. In fact, this is an inaccurate opinion, especially cars and some electric stuff like refrigerator. In this case, better have vehicle engine started once a month at least and to check whether it is well or not, if not, amend it right now.
It is still consuming battery voltage when vehicles in no use. Thus, it is very important to have them checked, and I often use BST-460 Battery Tester to have it tested if I park my car for a long time.
Inspection on easy-to-rust parts
Keeping vehicle surface clean and park in places keeping ventilation is a good way to avoid vehicle parts rusted.
Inspection on interior decorations
It is pretty important to keep vehicles interior decoration well, dry and clean to avoid germ.
Better protection on rubber products
Direct and strong shines are risk to rubber parts on vehicles, which is getting aging easily under shine.
As too many selection rules on lubrication oil are observing color, with or without sediments, and experiment verifications.
Observation on color and sediments
Quality one is clear and shows yellowish-brown and without sediments.
First one: drop lubrication oil on metal or emission tube above 110?; with detonans, it means the oil is mixed with water.
Second one: burn the oil. Burns smell not good; it is premature oxidation or mixed with other oil products.
That is all about today’s topic, more maintenance tips and methods will be released in this article, please pay attention!
