Daily maintenance mainly includes inspection of the main components of the vehicle and filling tanks.

Wheel check

Before the trip, you need to check the condition of the wheels, tire pressure.

Tire pressure should be checked when the wheels have cooled down after a ride.

After driving a car for a distance of several kilometers, the tires heat up and the pressure in them increases.

Tire pressure should be checked periodically

Tire pressure depending on the load

It is best to use a foot pump with a pressure gauge or a compressor.

It is advisable to rearrange the tires after a run of 15,000 km so that there is uniform tread wear.

Rearrange the wheels in accordance with the scheme

Also every 15,000 km it is necessary to balance the wheels

To check the tire pressure, unscrew the cap from the valve

Connect a pressure gauge and check the tire pressure

At low pressure, connect the hose tip to the valve and inflate the tire, controlling the pressure on the pressure gauge.

If the pressure is higher than required, you need to release some of the air, and control the pressure on the pressure gauge.

By repeating these operations, we bring the pressure to normal.

If the pressure in the wheel constantly drops, you need to check with a soapy solution for air leakage through the spool.

Using a cap with a key, you can try to tighten the spool.

The picture shows a protective cap with a key for unscrewing and tightening the spool.

It is necessary to screw the protective cap onto the valve, protecting the spool from contamination.

If during the check the spool passes air, then we unscrew the spool using a cap with a key and put another spool.

We measure the residual tread depth with a caliper.

If the tread depth is less than or equal to 1.6 mm, you need to replace the tire

The tread depth can also be checked visually by the tire wear indicators in the form of continuous transverse stripes on the tread.

The indicator locations are marked on the sidewall of the tire with a triangle.

Also spelled TWI (depending on tire manufacturer)

Check the tightness of the wheel bolts. Bolt tightening torque 105 Nm

Checking the engine oil level

Before checking the oil level after a trip, turn off the engine and wait 5-10 minutes for the oil to drain into the sump.

Add oil of the same brand, viscosity and quality class as the one used previously.

The oil level in the engine crankcase must not exceed the upper mark on the indicator, otherwise there may be leaks through gaskets and seals, increased oil consumption.

Check the level with the vehicle on a level surface.

The oil level indicator "A" and the oil filler plug "B" are located on the right side of the engine compartment next to the air filter.

We take out the probe

Ежедневное техническое обслуживание Рено СандероЕжедневное техническое обслуживание Рено Сандеро

Wipe the dipstick with a clean rag and reinstall

We take out the probe again. The oil level must be between the lower MIN and upper MAX marks on the gauge.

If the level is below or close to the lower mark, add oil.

Ежедневное техническое обслуживание Рено СандероЕжедневное техническое обслуживание Рено Сандеро

To add oil, turn the oil filler cap counterclockwise and remove it.

Pour oil into the engine in small portions, controlling the level on the dipstick

Oil must be topped up with the same viscosity and class that was filled into the engine.

The engines of this model are filled with oil that meets the European ACEA A2 or A3 standard or the API SJ standard, viscosity grade 15W-40, 15W50 or 5W-50.

After the oil level reaches the required level, install the filler cap in place.

Adding engine coolant

Add coolant of the same brand as was filled.

It is necessary to add liquid on a cooled engine.

Above the MAX mark, you can not add liquid; when the engine is running, its volume will increase.

When starting the engine, the filler cap of the expansion tank must be closed.

Keep an eye on the coolant level. Its sharp decrease or increase should be a signal for an immediate check of the engine cooling system.

If the freshly poured antifreeze suddenly turned brown quickly, then you were sold a fake, in which they forgot to add corrosion inhibitors. Replace the fluid as soon as possible before it has had time to corrode the cooling system.

The expansion tank is installed under the hood on the left side

The level must be between the marks

If the liquid level is less, unscrew the tank cap

Add DOT-4 brake fluid to the MAX mark.

We twist the stopper of the tank.

Topping up the working fluid in the power steering reservoir

ELF RENAULTMATIC D3 fluid must be poured into the power steering reservoir

The power steering reservoir is located on a bracket in the front of the engine compartment.

The tank body is marked MIN and MAX.

When the engine is warm, the fluid level should be near the upper mark.

With a cold engine, the fluid level should be above the lower mark.

You need to check the level on a cold engine.
