Car bottoming incidents occur from time to time, some of which are minor and have no impact on the car, and do not require maintenance. Some of them are quite serious, with damage to the chassis components, and the car was directly reported for insurance repair. After the bottom line is reached, we need to know in a timely manner whether it is serious? Can it be opened? Decide whether to apply for insurance to repair the car. Otherwise, if you drive away recklessly, it may cause the dam

Car bottoming incidents occur from time to time, some of which are minor and have no impact on the car, and do not require maintenance. Some of them are quite serious, with damage to the chassis components, and the car was directly reported for insurance repair. After the bottom line is reached, we need to know in a timely manner whether it is serious? Can it be opened? Decide whether to apply for insurance to repair the car. Otherwise, if you drive away recklessly, it may cause the damage to expand. Secondly, if you want to apply for insurance again, there will be no accident scene left and the insurance will not be fully covered. Today, let's talk about how to check on your own after providing a bottom line?

Bottom impact (1)

The larger the obstacle and the faster the vehicle speed, the greater the damage to the vehicle's bottom support. When supporting the bottom, there will be a loud noise, and experienced drivers can roughly know the impact force by listening to the sound. Car chassis components, some can withstand relatively large forces with little impact, while others cannot withstand too much force and are easily damaged. So when getting off the car, besides checking the size of obstacles, one should also check the location of the injury. There are several chassis components with a relatively high damage rate, including the water tank and water tank frame, engine oil pan, transmission oil pan, and exhaust pipe.

Bottom impact (2)

After bottoming out, get off the vehicle to check the damaged area. If the obstacle is large and the vehicle speed is slightly faster, it may damage multiple components of the chassis. The above-mentioned components are all likely to be damaged and there is a high possibility of not being able to continue driving. When the engine and transmission oil pan are hit, they are usually damaged and leak oil, while when the water tank is damaged, it will leak coolant. After bottoming out, no matter how big the obstacle is, first check if there is any oil or water leakage in the chassis. If there is any oil or water leakage, you must not continue to drive, and it must be a significant damage. Just report it directly to the insurance company. Whether replacing the water tank or oil pan, the cost is quite high, and it may also involve plastic surgery. One thing to be careful of is not to treat the air conditioning water as a liquid leak. The dripping point is exactly behind the engine and close to the right side. People often ask about the constant dripping of water under their cars, and there are many people who are unaware of the air conditioning water.

If the bottom position is not in the oil pan, there will be no liquid leakage. Then, lie down and search for the bottom position to see if there is any significant deformation, which can be seen at a glance. For example, if the water tank frame is deformed, it can be easily seen that the exhaust pipe is deformed, the stabilizer rod is deformed, and the triangular arm is deformed. If the obstacles are not large and the vehicle speed is not fast, there may be no oil leakage or visible deformation. So you can continue to drive forward and try getting off the car to see if there are any abnormalities. Because some components have slight deformations that cannot be seen with the naked eye, but they can be tested during testing. Common abnormalities include deviation, abnormal noise, and difficulty in steering. Step on the brake again to see if it is normal. The brake oil pipe also passes through the chassis to the rear wheels, and the bottom support may also be injured. In short, it is important to check if there are any abnormalities when driving. If there are no abnormalities, the vehicle can be driven normally without any injuries. If there is an abnormality while driving, you cannot continue driving. If you cannot determine the cause of the abnormality yourself, call for rescue directly.
