1.23. Instructions on driving
Amplifier of the brake drive
At the idle engine the amplifier of the brake drive stops the action after 2-3-fold pressing a brake pedal. At the same time brake action does not decrease, however the bigger effort is required when pressing a brake pedal.
The steering mechanism with the amplifier
If the amplifier of the steering drive fails, for example, during towage with the idle engine, then the car continues to be operated, however application of great efforts is demanded.
The movement in mountain conditions, towage of the trailer
The cooling system fan – electrodriving. Therefore, its efficiency does not depend on the frequency of rotation of a shaft of the engine. With a high frequency of rotation of a shaft of the engine a lot of heat is generated, at low – respectively it is less.
Therefore, when overcoming rises not to switch to lower transfer until the car is able to master quietly rise on higher transfer.
Diesel engine: on rises with a bias in 10% and not to exceed the speed of the movement on the 1st transfer any more – 30 km/h, on the 2nd – 50 km/h.
The movement with load of a roof
Not to exceed a permissible load on a roof. For safety reasons evenly to distribute and to reliably fix freight fixing belts. To bring pressure in tires to the value specified for full loading. Not to exceed the speed of 120 km/h. More often to check and tighten fastening.
At very high temperature of cooling liquid, for example, after driving in mountain conditions to allow the engine to work on idling about 2 minutes that there was no stagnation of heat.
After an engine stop the fan of the engine can continue some time the work for cooling of knots of the engine.
Mode of compulsory idling
During the mode of compulsory idling fuel supply is automatically turned off, for example, during driving under a bias or when braking. During the mode of compulsory idling not to "increase speed" and not to switch off coupling that the system of shutdown of supply of fuel worked.
Frequency of rotation of a shaft of the engine
In all road conditions to drive the car in the optimum range of frequencies of rotation of a shaft of the engine.
Warming up of the engine
To warm up the engine at the movement of the car, but not on idling. Not "to give full gas", not to be established working temperature yet.
After launch of the cold engine the automatic transmission switches to higher transfers only with a bigger frequency of rotation of a shaft of the engine. Thus, the catalyst quickly heats up to temperature demanded for optimum process of reduction of harmful substances.
Timely gear shifting
On idling and the lowest transfers you do not bring the frequency of rotation of a shaft of the engine to too high values. Too high speed on separate transfers or steps, and also driving with frequent stops increase wear of knots of the car and fuel consumption.
Switching to the lowest transfer
At reduction of speed to switch to lower transfer not to revolve coupling with the increased frequencies of rotation of a shaft of the engine. It is especially important during the movement in mountain conditions.
To press a coupling pedal at full capacity to prevent difficulties at gear shifting and not to damage the transmission. Around pedals there should be no rugs.
Do not use a coupling pedal in the course of driving as a support for a leg, otherwise the accelerated wear of clutch plates is possible.
Safety of the rechargeable battery
During driving at a small speed or stops, for example, at the movement in the city, at short-term trips and stoppages whenever possible to disconnect consumers of the electric power (glass heating, additional headlights, etc.).
At launch of the engine to switch off coupling to avoid resistance of idling of the transmission, to unload a starter and the rechargeable battery.
