Many drivers of manual transmission models either want to save themselves trouble or because newbies are not accustomed to constantly shifting gears on road. In fact, this low-speed and high-speed approach increases load on engine and causes great damage to engine. Do not be lazy behind wheel and change gears frequently depending on speed of car.
Long time in semi-coupled state
Some drivers are accustomed to depressing clutch with their left foot all time while driving, thinking that this is best way to maintain control of car, but in fact this practice will cause great damage to clutch disc. Especially when vehicle is moving at high speed, long-term condition of clutch half causes clutch disc to wear out quickly. In addition, practice of starting in second gear also leads to premature clutch failure. Starting in first gear is good for any car.
●Shifting gears without fully disengaging
When we normally drive, we can always see some impatient car owners busy shifting when clutch is not fully depressed. Fatal injury. Although automatic transmission model does not have problem of depressing clutch to shift gears, many drivers rush into P before vehicle comes to a complete stop.
A car's shock absorbers, springs, and suspension are usually difficult to observe, but they are also vulnerable parts of a car. Braking early when crossing ditches and ridges instead of flipping car over sharply not only improves ride comfort but also protects shock absorbers, springs and suspensions. Many car owners jumped on curb to show off their superior driving skills. In fact, maybe one day car's damping or spring will no longer interact with your operation. In same way, absence of g-forces not only improves fuel economy, but is also a kind of caring for car parts such as suspension.
Use combo switch often
The flickering of car headlights pleases car owners, but what they don't know is that frequent switching increases chance of damage to combination switch. Because at moment switch is turned on, current through switch contacts is much higher than usual, and if ignition works in a half-closed and half-disconnected state, then contacts can be burned by electrical sparks.
Force water jet on
If temperature is low in winter and water nozzle is frozen, owner should not forcibly spray water on glass. This will only choke water pump and car owner can wait for car to start, car's temperature to rise, and frozen water nozzle to thaw before spraying water. The same applies to wipers: frozen wipers will not have proper cleaning effect.
Tire rubbing against steps
There have been many reminders about tires, but another thing to note is that side of tire is thinnest, so owner must pay special attention to protecting side of tire when climbing stairs or crossing. A side collision is more destructive than a frontal one.
Press and hold power window control
Many car window electric switches do not work or glass does not go up and down in place, which is also due to daily operation errors. When using power window to raise glass, when glass falls to bottom or rises to top, you need to let go in time, otherwise motor will naturally have to kill itself when it competes with mechanical parts of car.
Drive with handbrake applied
Experienced drivers said that when controlling speed of a car, you need to use more gears, anticipate, shift gears more often and brake less. Especially when descending, give engine braking, sometimes supplemented by a brake, do not apply brake when descending to protect brake pads. Before car starts, be sure to release brake. Driving with handbrake on is one of ways in which brake pads wear most.
Steering wheel turned too far
Because booster pump is often used, it is also a vulnerable part of car. When driver turns direction, turn back a little when hitting your head, and keep booster pump under tension for a long time, which will help prolong life of booster pump.
