1500 kilometers is break-in period for a new car. During this period, we try not to overload, otherwise it will lead to wear of engine, transmission and other components. quality lubricating oil with low viscosity to reduce wear Degree. In process of driving, you should not be greedy for speed, because excessive speed and steep driving on road will increase load on body and power system, which will have a very detrimental effect on health of car.
What should I pay attention to during first service?
Remove iron filings created during break-in period
Attentive car owners will find that there will be some iron filings in oil during break-in period of car. I don't know if there is something wrong with car. But this is actually because some foreign matter will be generated during operation of car, and iron filings will be one of them, and iron filings can make it difficult to start car and lead to a lack of fuel.

The most important elements
1. Care of painted surface
Paint care is one of most important things because car paint has a very strong effect on car. It's just bought and paintwork hasn't aged yet. It looks very glamorous, but in fact, after car leaves factory, paint surface will begin to be more or less damaged and corroded, so this is first thorough maintenance of car. If you want to open wax on surface paint, you should choose a relatively high-quality wax solution.
Second, change engine oil
Many car owners are not very sensitive to engine oil. They often have misconception that it is better to change it when it is almost same. Know health of car, because color depth and viscosity of oil oil can well reflect wear and workmanship of car .
Third, change spark plug
The spark plug is in ignition system, which generates electrical sparks and then ignites gas mixture to generate power for car. That is, if spark plug is not replaced in time, this will affect quality of ignition or it will not ignite at all, that is, car will not be able to start. It will also result in insufficient fuel combustion in vehicle, resulting in increased fuel consumption.
Fourth, replace and clean air filter.
The car's air filter element is a very important part of car's "breathing system". It is responsible for blocking foreign particles attached to outside air and ensures that fresh, clean and sufficient air enters engine cylinders. engine. Dirty filter elements will reduce inhalation of outside air, air and exhaust gases generated by car will not circulate, and it will be difficult to alternate, which will affect normal gas injection and combustion quality, so that fuel consumption will be relatively increased, wasteful In addition to energy, it does not contribute to normal operation of car.
Five, change petrol filter
The function of a gasoline filter, as name suggests, is to filter impurities in gasoline and keep engine running smoothly. If gasoline filter is clogged or dirty, its filtering function will be weakened, so gasoline will not be filtered well, and amount of impurities will increase, and more seriously, black or gray smoke will appear in exhaust pipe. in some cases, engine will still make harsh noises and it will be difficult to start car if it continues to develop and seems to have no power.
Beginners should pay attention to following points:
When driving on a rough road, be careful not to scratch chassis, otherwise oil pan may be damaged, resulting in oil leakage. Of course, when such a situation arises, a red oil pot and a water wave logo will be displayed on dashboard. At this time, stop immediately and turn off engine to check. If a novice driver does not understand situation and continues to move forward, there will be a big problem, as a result of which engine will fail.
When parking, pull handbrake
New car owners not only need to get used to dashboard, but also learn how to shift gears and use handbrake. Some car owners habitually put shift lever in neutral when parking, in fact, this habit is not good, as it is easy to force shift lever into forward gear, which can create danger.
From a safety standpoint, new car owners should pull on handbrake when parking, especially on slopes, to avoid hazards such as reversing car. Similarly, once car is about to move, handbrake must be in place before it can be activated. Many beginners and new car owners often ignore this problem when they change to a new car. They don't realize it until car has been running for a while. As everyone knows, if handbrake is not in place, it will do a lot of damage to car.
Pay attention to abnormal vehicle noise at any time
During driving, driver must pay close attention to sound of every part of car. Once you find that there is an abnormal sound in car, you must first determine exactly whether sound is coming from inside or outside car. If abnormal sound comes from outside vehicle, you should pay special attention and stop for inspection.
If engine does not turn off, if sound disappears, it can be judged that this is an abnormal sound while driving. Owners of new cars should carefully listen to which side and in which direction sound is coming from: it could be a wheel hub, a tire, a gearbox, a propeller shaft, a suspension, a tire could be nailed or stuck with stones, it could be brake pads This is a normal abnormal sound caused by high density of parts, etc. For various reasons, car owners may first evaluate and check for themselves.
Of course, if sound persists, problem may be in engine. At this time, it is necessary to pay attention to whether quality of oil affects operation of hydraulic and lubrication systems. Generally speaking, new cars use original engine oil, but after break-in period of a new car has passed, it is recommended to change engine oil according to its own car condition and road conditions, such as in cities (quotes < /p>
