1. Change the engine lubricating oil from time to time
Under normal circumstances, the manufacturers of naturally aspirated engine models sold in China will require users to change the lubricating oil when driving 5000 km-15,000 kilometers, while the supercharged engine models require replacement when driving 5000 kilometers. If the car does not drive too much Or it has been in a stopped state, and it is best to change the oil every six months. Of course, if your environment and oil quality are good, you can extend the oil change interval and time appropriately.
2, replace the oil filter from time to time
The function of the oil filter element is to filter impurities, so it must be replaced with the oil. If it is not replaced, the oil will not be filtered, which will cause the internal parts of the engine to wear out due to the impurities in the oil.
3. Replace the air filter from time to time
If the filter element is severely clogged, the air intake resistance will increase and the engine power will decrease. At the same time, due to the increase in air resistance, the amount of gasoline sucked in will also increase, resulting in an excessively rich mixture ratio, which will worsen the engine’s operating state, increase fuel consumption, and easily produce carbon deposits. Usually, you should get into the habit of checking the air filter element frequently.
4. Change the brake oil from time to time
One characteristic of brake fluid is that it absorbs water in the air, and the brake hydraulic system must allow the brake fluid to communicate with the atmosphere in order to function normally. Over time, the brake fluid will absorb water and turn into bubbles at high temperatures. If air bubbles appear in the battery, the braking performance will decrease. Therefore, the brake fluid should be replaced on time by checking its quality and performance according to the climate, operating environment, seasonal changes and working conditions.
General recommendation: Replace every two years or when driving 50,000 kilometers, and remember when selecting and replacing brake fluids: Do not mix different types and brands of brake fluids. Due to different formulas, mixing brake fluids will cause brake fluid indicators to drop.
5. Replace the antifreeze from time to time
If the antifreeze fluid is not changed for a long time, its anti-corrosion, anti-rust and anti-scaling functions will be reduced, which will cause the cooling system to malfunction or even rust. Generally speaking, the antifreeze is generally replaced every 1.5 to 2 years.
