1.6. Diagnostics of malfunctions of knots and systems of the car

The owners of cars performing procedures of routine maintenance of the vehicle it agrees the schedule provided in the Head Routine maintenance will be extremely seldom forced to address materials of this section. Reliability of the knots and components installed on modern cars is so high that at timely performance of replacement of the materials of details which are worn out and failed as a result of aging the probability of their sudden refusal is extremely small. Refusals seldom happen spontaneously and usually are a consequence sometimes of long development of defect. In particular, failure of mechanical components practically is always preceded by emergence and development of the characteristic symptoms which are shown sometimes for many thousands of kilometers of a run to the full. The same components which can fail unexpectedly usually are not vital for functioning of the main knots and systems of the car, or are easily replaced in road conditions.

Fundamental step at identification of the reasons of any refusal is the choice of a point of the beginning of searches. Often the reason is lying on a surface, however in certain cases it is necessary to work, making small investigation. The motorist who produced half-dozens of casual checks of replacements and corrections quite has chance to find a cause of failure (or its symptom), however it is impossible to call such approach reasonable, in view of its labor input and aimlessness of expenses of time and means in any way. There is a quiet logical approach to search of the failed knot or component much more effectively. Surely it is necessary to take into account everything preceding breakage, sometimes insignificant, symptoms and the guarding signals, such as loss of the power developed by the engine, change of indications of measuring instruments, emergence of unusual sounds and smells, etc. Do not forget that failure of such components as safety locks or spark plugs can be only a symptom more deeply of the hidden violation.

In this subsection rather simple scheme of diagnostics of the most often found refusals is given below. The reasons of violations and their symptoms are grouped in a sign of the relation to functioning of any concrete unit or system: "Engine", "Cooling system", etc. In brackets references to the corresponding Chapters and sections of the Management concerning functioning of the components suspected of malfunction are given.

Regardless of the refusal nature investigations of its reason are always taken the identical basic principles as a principle:

Make sure of correctness of definition of symptoms of refusal. Told means confidence in delimitation of the area of searches that it is especially important with the help in refusal diagnostics to other motorist who cannot adequately state symptoms of the violation taking place.

Try not to miss obvious violations. For example, if the engine is not started, do not hesitate to check availability of fuel in a gasoline tank (at the same time it is not necessary to take on trust statements of the owner of the faulty car). In case of refusal electric equipments first of all it is necessary to check a state and reliability of fastening of terminal connections of an electrical wiring, only after it it makes sense to get diagnostic units.

Try to remove a cause of failure, but not its symptom. Replacement of the discharged battery new will help to make start of the engine, however the reason of a discharge of the old battery taking place will remain not eliminated that will lead to bystry failure and new. Also replacement of the spark plugs thrown by oil will allow to restore serviceability of functioning of the engine for some time, however the refusal by all means will soon repeat (if the reason lay not just in application of candles not of that type).

Do not take on trust any statements. Remember that the "new" component can also be faulty, in particular if it long time lay in a luggage carrier — it is not necessary to exclude a component from the list checked only for the reason that it is new or is recently established. In case of neglect it is not necessary to be surprised with implementation of this recommendation when the cause of failure established, at last, is lying on a surface from the very beginning.

Diagnostics of malfunctions of AT

In view of complexity of a design of AT it will be difficult to average amateur mechanic to carry out enough precisely diagnostics of its refusals and recovery repair. In case of problems, excellent from listed below, the owner of the car should ask for the help specialists of car service. It is also not necessary to hurry with demontazhy faulty transmission as its many checks are made by in situ (on the regular place).


Leakages of ATF

ATF usually differs in dark red color. It is not necessary to confuse traces of its leaks to those from motive oil (the last can communicate on a transmission case the running air stream).

For identification of a source of leak, first of all, it is necessary to clear a case of transmission and surfaces surrounding it of dirt and lubricant. Use qualitative degreaser or execute steam cleaning of the unit. Make on the car a short trip with a low speed of the movement (that traces of the leak taking place did not communicate far from its source). The car also establish to Poddomkratta it on props. Examine a transmission case, visually revealing leakage sources of ATF.

Most often act as those:

  • Transmission case pallet: tighten fixture and/or replace sealing laying;
  • Back lengthening of transmission: tighten fixture and/or replace an epiploon;
  • Jellied mouth: replace a rubber cuff in the place of an entrance of a mouth to a transmission case;
  • Ventilating tube: transmission is crowded and/or water got to a case;
  • Speedometer junction point: replace a sealing ring in the place of an entrance of a driving cable to a transmission case.


ATF has brown color or smells of ashes

  • The ATF level fell in transmission, or liquid burned and needs replacement.

  • The sensor switch of permission of start is faulty, or its adjustment is broken.


Transmission "comes off" the chosen situation, switches hardly or with noise, or does not provide progress of the car forward or back

There is a set of the possible reasons listed refusals however only one of them - violation of the ATF level gets to the sphere of competence of the average amateur mechanic. Check, in case of need make adjustment level / replacement of liquid and the filter, in parallel check a condition of ATF. In all other cases the car should be driven away for diagnostics and recovery repair / replacement of transmission on car repair shop.

First of all check balancing of wheels and pressure of a rating of tires.

  • Establish a tachometer in interior of the car and during the movement try to define engine turns at which vibration reaches the maximum intensity, then switch transfer and bring engine turns to the same value.
  • If vibration arises and reaches the maximum intensity at the same turns of the engine, irrespective of the chosen transfer, its source is NOT the driveshaft as the frequency of its rotation depends on the choice of the transfer relation.
  • If switching of transfer leads to disappearance of vibration or noticeable decrease in its intensity (at the same turns of the engine), it is necessary to pass to checks of a state cardan вала:.
  • Check the driveshaft for existence of signs of a bend and other deformations, in case of need make replacement
  • Carefully clear a shaft. The stuck dirt can be a balancing cause of infringement.
  • Estimate degree of wear of bearings of cardan hinges, in case of need make replacement of assemblies.
  • Check balancing of the driveshaft or its connecting flange. Make sure of presence on the places of balancing small weights, remove a shaft and establish it, having turned on 180 °. If vibrations do not disappear, give a shaft to balancing.
  • Check reliability of tightening of fixing bolts / nuts.
  • At the corresponding complete set of the car estimate degree of wear of the central bearing.
  • Check a condition of back plugs of transmission.

  • Existence of noise at the choice of the modes 4H and 2H and absence in the mode 4L tells them about existence of malfunction of internal components of the transfer case.
