About this Management


This manual was formed with the purpose to help the owner of the car to receive from it the maximum return. Performance of this task is reached in several ways. The data collected and given below allow the owner of the vehicle to be defined in what works on its service and when have to be executed and also whether it makes sense to try to execute them independently, or it is necessary to address to dealer office of manufacturing firm or a workshop of car service. The Management included descriptions of procedures of obligatory routine maintenance of the car and the schedule of their performance is provided. Besides, information on performing diagnostics of malfunctions of knots and systems of the car (in case of their refusal), and also ways of elimination of their reasons is offered.

The management is made proceeding from the assumption of independent performance of the most part of procedures of service of the car by its owner. Many of simple works can be executed by own forces of the motorist much quicker, taking into account time necessary for delivery of the vehicle in a workshop of car service, load of the schedule of work of workshops and a trip to a workshop behind the car. Except that probably it is much more important, independent performing procedures of service and repair allows to reduce significantly the material inputs connected with it, not to mention feeling of self-satisfaction from successfully performed work.

Instructions for use Management

The management is divided into Chapters. Each Chapter is broken into the Sections, in turn, consisting of the paragraphs which are (consistently numbered).

The text brought to attention of readers is followed by the illustrative material (drawings and pictures) opening an order and a way of implementation of these or those procedures of each of Sections. The procedures once considered in the text usually do not repeat further. Instead, in case of need, a reference to appropriate section of the corresponding Chapter where this procedure was already mentioned is made.

References to the provision of knot or component at the left or on the right on the car are based on the assumption that the reader is in the driver's place, face forward.
