This section is intended to provide correctness of carrying out maintenance of the car, to help to support the car in proper condition and to prolong its service life. If maintenance was not held regularly, bad operation of the engine (incomplete return of power, strange behavior of the engine, etc.) an investigation of it can become. In that case it is necessary to execute the following actions:

 – check all liquids connected with the engine;
 – clear, examine and check a condition of the accumulator;
 – check the cooling system;
 – check a state and a tension of auxiliary driving belts;
 – check a condition of high-voltage wires;
 – replace spark plugs;
 – check and, if necessary, adjust idling turns;
 – check a condition of the air filter and filter of ventilation of a case;
 – check a condition of the valve of ventilation of a case.

If these actions were not effective, execute the following actions:

 – check fuel system;
 – replace the fuel filter;
 – check and, if necessary, adjust valvate gaps;
 – check system of repeated burning of exhaust gases;
 – replace high-voltage wires;
 – replace the air filter and the filter of ventilation of a case;
 – replace the valve of ventilation of a case;
 – check installation of a corner of an advancing of ignition;
 – check system of charging.
