What##Q##s Wrong With My Car? – Troubleshooting Problems
Technical revision is made annually to a car – or as implied in contract terms or the dealer terms / your personal consultant. The costs of technical revisions may be between 100$ and 5,000$ depending on the problems diagnosed and what kind of parts must be replaced!
First, a technical revision involves a correct analysis to the proper vehicle, in terms of electronics and mechanical.
It is adviceable to do the technical revision in time – to avoid problems – chain of parts and mechanisms where there is a unworkable system in the parameters (engine, suspension components).
Technical inspection is performed using computer systems (the tests) and mechanical / manual check (validation) in the direction subassemblies.
If the problem is not diagnosed and repaired, (analyzed), check and displays the results provided by the sensors. Software tester can not always identify the problem claimed by the owner of the car.
The analysis and revisions to take into account – the last exchange made, levels of fuel and supplies to be used and replaced.
We recommend that you write a book to note any change – parts or supplies – keeping the car##Q##s history if you do not have a book service.
As you can see what has changed, what needs to be changed or not do not forget to take into account the investment in the car.
The check on the power engine with tester (through the trip computer) and also each electronic component:
Internal components of the machine:
# Indicators and sensors onboard
# Headlights, indicators
# Position lights, signals, fog lights and remote sensors
# Alarm system, central locking, interior lights and indicators
# Heating, cooling system (climatronics)
# The onboard computer # and error messages returned
# Other electrical / electronic components
# Do the compression test
# Check their equivalent mileage and trip computer / display
# Level and spark parameters
# State files
# Status of the battery / electric motor (starter)
# How to load and the electrical / mechanical
# Timing belt kit and water pump roller
# Alternator belt
# Checking the box steering fluid, brake fluid, coolant and windshield liquidity
# Check the condition freon
# Belts and hoses must be intact
Liquid supplies engine components:
# Concentration of antifreeze
# Oil Leaks
# Change the air filters periodically, fuel, oil and pollen
Direction of the mechanical components:
# Status of the steering joints (rod ends, bolts, connecting rods and anti-roll direction, bushings, etc.)
# Check and make steering angle
# Check convergence and camber
# Check the variables of the brake pads and brake discs
I hope these tests and checks will be useful to consider it appropriate for your needs. We are waiting for your comment(s) – useful to develop this guide – for new drivers!
