Novice drivers should be aware of the ten bad habits of wearing out a car
4hw.com.cn: the driving habits of the car greatly affect the service life of the car, including the wear degree of various parts, such as the manual gear. Many drivers don't like to shift easily, which often results in low gear and high gear. In fact, it has a great load on the engine.
1. Upshift and overtake
There is also a common misconception in driving that causes great damage to the engine, that is, to upshift and overtake. In fact, when the gear is higher, the engine torque is smaller, and the throttle response is not sensitive, which can not achieve the desired acceleration effect. The right way is to take the initiative to downshift when overtaking and speeding up. For the automatic transmission model, when the driver deeply steps on the accelerator, the driving computer will automatically make a judgment and downshift to provide enough torque to overtake the vehicle. But only if the driver pushes the gas deep enough.
2. Semi clutch for a long time
Some drivers are used to keeping their left foot on the clutch all the time in driving, thinking that this can better maintain the control of the vehicle, but in fact, this practice is very harmful to the clutch plate. Especially when the vehicle runs at high speed, the long-term semi clutch state will make the clutch plate wear rapidly. In addition, starting in second gear will also lead to premature clutch failure. First gear starting is beneficial and harmless for any model.
3. Shift without complete separation
Usually when driving, we can always see that some anxious car owners are busy gearing up when the clutch is not fully stepped on, so that not only the gear is difficult to engage accurately, but also the long-term operation is a fatal damage to the gearbox of the manual gear model. Although there is no problem of stepping on the clutch and shifting gears in the automatic gear model, many drivers rush to engage P gear when the vehicle does not stop completely, and the gearbox is also hard to bear the situation that the vehicle condition is inconsistent with the operation.
4. Gallop past
Usually it is difficult to observe the shock absorber, spring and suspension of the vehicle, but they are also vulnerable parts of the vehicle. Slow down in advance when crossing the ditch and the ridge, instead of letting the vehicle rush through. This not only ensures the ride comfort, but also protects the shock absorber, spring and suspension. Many car owners jumped on the curb to show their superb driving skills. In fact, the shock absorption or spring of the vehicle may not match your operation any more. Similarly, not overloading not only improves fuel economy, but also takes care of auto parts such as suspension.
5. Frequently operate combination switch
The flashing of vehicle lights makes the owner feel good about himself. However, frequent switching increases the probability of damage to the combination switch. Because when the switch is on, the current through the switch contact is much higher than usual. When the switch is half engaged and half separated, the electric spark may burn the contact.
6. Force the nozzle to work
When the low temperature spray nozzle is frozen in winter, the owner should not spray glass water forcibly. This will only damage the water pump, the owner can wait for the car to start, the temperature of the car will come up, and then spray water after the frozen spray nozzle is frozen. The same is true for wipers. The frozen wipers do not have the proper cleaning effect and will damage the wipers themselves.
7. The tires rub against the steps
There are many reminders about tires, but it is worth noting that the side of the tires is the thinnest. Therefore, when the car owners go up the steps or cross the curb, they should pay special attention to protecting the side of the tires. They should not scratch the side of the tires while the front does not collide. The side impact will destroy the tires even more than the front.
8. Hold down the window regulator
Many vehicle glass electric switches do not work or the window glass can not be raised and lowered in place, which is also related to daily operation errors. When the electric window regulator is used to lift the window, when the window is lowered to the bottom or raised to the top, it must be released in time, otherwise, the motor can only self destruct if it competes with the mechanical parts of the vehicle.
9. Pull the brake to start
Experienced drivers said that they should use more gears when controlling the speed, foresee as early as possible, be diligent in shifting and use less brake. Especially when going downhill, let the engine brake, and occasionally assist with braking. Do not step on the brake to go downhill, which can protect the brake pads. Don't forget to release the brake before starting. Driving with handbrake is one of the most worn brake shoes.
10. Steering wheel rotation angle is too large
Because it is often used, booster pump is also a vulnerable part of the vehicle. When the driver is turning the direction, turn back when the end is turned. Do not let the booster pump be in a tight state for a long time, which will help to extend the life of the booster pump.
