Are provided the description of the checks and adjustments necessary for maintenance of high operational qualities of the car, profitability, safety of the movement and durability in this chapter.

If the order of maintenance was not observed a long time, then the checks described below and adjustments should be carried out more often, or as required. The largest volume of adjusting and adjustment works as a rule is carried out on the engine. Especially it concerns the engine of the used car which was not exposed to regular or timely checks. In such cases besides periodic maintenance, it is necessary to perform additional adjustment works.

If there are suspicions on wear of the engine, then it is necessary to check a compression in cylinders and to obtain valuable information, concerning a condition of all main details of the internal device of the engine. On the basis of these data it is possible to gain an impression about the volume and degree of complexity of the forthcoming works. If, for example, a compression such is that obviously indicates strong wear of the engine, then routine maintenance will not lead to restoration of normal operational qualities and it is necessary to execute capital repairs with full dismantling. The list of works most of which often are required to be executed to improve steadily shown abnormal operation of the engine is given below.
