Owners of domestic off-road vehicles "Chevrolet"Niva ", however, like all other cars of Russian production, in most cases prefer to repair their iron horses with their own hands. However, for such repairs to bring success, you need to know the stages of a process. Today we will just look at what periodicity and with what details it is necessary to repair the Niva Chevrolet with our own hands.
First of all, this applies to all liquids. Repair ("Niva Chevrolet") with their own hands in this case is not needed, just need topping up the necessary funds. Weekly it is necessary to check the oil level in the engine, and also to check the condition of the coolant in the expansion tank. Special attention should be given to the oil. In its absence, the engine will run "on dry", which means that the piston will simply lift up the surface of the cylinder, thereby causing the crank mechanism to become unusable.Some tests have shown that if you mergecompletely oil or fall asleep there a bit of sand, then the engine already after 3-5 seconds of such work stops and breaks down. Yes, oil forms only a small film between the piston and the cylinder, but its presence is very important for the car. What gives us a regular check of the level of the balance? And the fact that one day your car will not stop until the nearest exit of the tow truck. And no repairs ("Niva Chevrolet") with their own hands will not help you. Such a motor you are unlikely to restore or repair even at the service station. Therefore, if the probe showed a minimum level of oil (the liquid is consumed naturally, especially often it happens on GAZels), then fill it with a new one. But do not mix "synthetics" with "mineral water" and vice versa, this will only exacerbate the problem.
On this run, you may needrepair of the chassis "Chevrolet Niva", namely the replacement of shock absorbers. Also from the running it is worth noting the CV joint and anther, though they fail only after 100-120 thousand kilometers. Do not forget to adjust the gaps on the valves. Repair ("Niva Chevrolet") with the hands of this device is made every 40 thousand kilometers.
At least once every 15-20 thousand kilometerscheck the condition of the brake pads, discs or drums. The braking system is a very serious thing, and, probably, it is not necessary to explain what happens to the car when, after the next braking, the brakes stick to the disc or the brakes fail. By the way, in the latter case, it is regularly necessary to monitor the state of the liquid in the system. Specifically, the brake fluid.
Fortunately, Chevrolet Niva has much morequality body than its Soviet version - VAZ 2121. Whatever, and the hand of foreign colleagues still extended the life of the new "Niva". Its body is almost not corroded, so repair it or paint it soon after the purchase. The exact date is not here, as the operating conditions for all cars are different, but "anti-corrosion" after the acquisition in the cabin still need to be made so that there are no consequences.
