The maintenance of a car is related to all aspects. When performing maintenance operations, clear operation signs should be set to prevent other people from being injured by misoperation. Let’s introduce to you several aspects that need to be paid attention to when car maintenance, so that you can be safer in car maintenance.
1. Avoid mechanical damage.
The maintenance of a car is related to all aspects. When performing maintenance operations, clear work signs should be set to prevent other people from being injured by misoperation. When starting the car, pay attention to the gear position of the transmission to prevent the car from accidentally moving and hurting people. When working under the hood, other people should be allowed to leave the cab to prevent the sudden rotation of the engine or the action of other people’s control mechanisms, which may cause accidental injury. If you need to work under the car, you should set up obvious signs and cover the car with a car cover. When using a jack to support the truck, the jack should be placed steadily. Before driving, you should prepare driving tools (driving stool). It is forbidden to use fragile objects such as bricks. When installing the assembly, never try to test the screw holes, keyholes, etc. with your hands to avoid breaking your fingers. When testing the engine, do not work under the vehicle.
2. Avoid fire.
When maintaining a car, it is often necessary to use flammable and explosive materials such as oil and cleaning agents. Don’t forget the fire fighting measures at this time, and prepare a fire extinguisher just in case. Do not smoke near the fuel tank and the battery, because the combustible gas escaping from the fuel tank and the hydrogen escaping from the battery are easily ignited.
3. Avoid burns.
The engine that has just turned off, because the temperature of the engine’s various parts (water tank, exhaust pipe, power steering fluid tank, spark plug, etc.) are relatively high, you must be careful to contact it to prevent burns. If the engine temperature is high, never remove the water tank cap or release the water switch to prevent burns.
4. Avoid damaging the car.
Brake fluid has a damaging effect on the paint film of automobiles (including the paint film of leather shoes), and it can quickly dissolve the paint film. Brake fluid is harmful to the eyes. If it splashes into the eyes, it must be rinsed off with clean water immediately.
5. Avoid carelessly rotating parts and the protection of automobile road tests.
When the engine is running, pay attention to the hands, clothing and tools must be away from the rotating fan and fan drive belt (*good to remove wearing rings, watches, neckties and other items). During the test run, the conditions of all parts of the car should be able to ensure safe parking and effective steering. The car for road test must have a clear test sign. During the test drive, personnel must ride safely and proceed on a special test track.
6. Avoid not paying attention to the cleaning of the workplace.
When closing the engine cover or other assembly covers, check whether the tools, rags, and removed parts are forgotten, and can only be closed after confirmation.
