1.1.25. Driving receptions

At a strong lateral wind reduce speed that will raise controllability.

Call in on borders or barriers slowly, it is desirable at right angle. Avoid arrivals on acting sharp subjects and potholes. Otherwise tyre cover rupture is possible.

At a parking on an abrupt slope turn forward wheels against the stop in a border that will exclude spontaneous movement накатом. Put the car on a manual brake and put the lever in position Р (on automatic transmission) or include the first transfer (on a manual transmission). If necessary substitute under wheels колодки.

At a car sink, or at movement on pools, water can get to brakes. Check up water hit in brakes, slightly having pressed a pedal (having convinced of absence of transport). If weak braking, brakes wet is felt. To dry brakes include a manual brake and, moving on small speed slightly press a pedal. If work of brakes is not restored, it is necessary to move down on a roadside and to cause the technical help from car-care centre service.

Before a start of motion be convinced that the car is removed from a manual brake and the control lamp has gone out.

Do not leave the car with working engine without supervision.

During movement do not hold a foot on a brake pedal, otherwise there is an overheat and deterioration of brakes, profitability falls.

At long movement under a bias or at congress from abrupt slopes reduce speed and include a hill-climbing gear. Keep in mind that at too frequent using brakes there is their overheat and efficiency of braking falls.

At driving on slippery road be careful at dispersal, inclusion raised or a hill-climbing gear and at braking. Sudden dispersal or braking by the engine can lead to car drift.

Movement with wet brakes as the brake way increases is not supposed and uniformity of braking is broken. Besides, the manual brake will not keep the car.

Avoid movement on the big pools. Penetration of a considerable quantity of water into a motor compartment will result to an exit of the engine and (or) electric equipments out of operation.

Features of driving of cars with the wheel formula 4х4

Tyres of all wheels should be identical type and the size. Pressure in tyres should correspond to norm.

For preservation of efficiency of a drive on all wheels deterioration of tyres of all wheels should be uniform. Periodically rearrange wheels.

For passableness increase at movement on a dirt, sand or on snow on forward wheels dress chains.

Right after overcomings of almost impassable road (a dirt, waters, etc.) check up work of brakes.

At driving under trying conditions it is necessary to reduce terms of periodic service.

Features of driving in winter conditions

The cooling system should be filled by antifreeze on a basis этиленгликоля.

It is forbidden to apply antifreeze on spirit to a basis.
Check up a condition of the battery and power cables.

At low temperature the battery capacity goes down. Therefore, for engine start-up in winter conditions the battery should be completely charged and serviceable.

Be convinced that viscosity of oil in the engine corresponds to an operation season.

Application of summer marks of oil with the raised viscosity complicates engine start-up. Consult in service of car-care centre concerning a choice of mark of oil for a winter season.

Take measures against обмерзания locks of doors.

For this purpose drip in chinks special means against an icing of locks or glycerine. Before door unlocking heat up a key.

In a tank стеклоомывателя fill in a liquid containing special antifreeze.

It is not supposed to use for washing of glasses antifreeze from system of cooling of the engine which destroys body colouring.

At frosts do not put the car on a manual brake.

At a parking include the first transfer or translate the lever in position Р (on automatic transmission). At freezing of the got moisture, the mechanism of a manual brake can not release a wheel.

Do not suppose a congestion under wings of snow and ice which complicate turn of wheels. At driving in snow weather off and on stop and check a snow congestion under wings.

At driving in the winter under trying conditions it is recommended to carry with itself certain accessories: chains, a shovel for snow, a sack with sand or with salt, alarm rockets, starting cables, etc.
