What kind of malfunction does the car have and it can't be driven?
During normal driving, regardless of the type of vehicle, there will be some problems and situations where the car malfunctions. Many major faults develop from minor ones, and if discovered and repaired early, only a small amount of maintenance costs are required. But if you don't pay attention and continue driving, it will develop into a major malfunction, and the maintenance cost will be very high. Many beginners are like this. If a car has a small malfunction, they cannot detect it in a timely manner. As long as the car can move
During normal driving, regardless of the type of vehicle, there will be some problems and situations where the car malfunctions. Many major faults develop from minor ones, and if discovered and repaired early, only a small amount of maintenance costs are required. But if you don't pay attention and continue driving, it will develop into a major malfunction, and the maintenance cost will be very high. Many beginners are like this. If a car has a small malfunction, they cannot detect it in a timely manner. As long as the car can move, they will continue to drive until it can no longer move, only then will they know that the malfunction has occurred. Newcomers often ask this question: What should I pay attention to when driving? What phenomenon occurs and cannot be continued to drive? Today, let's talk about these issues?
In fact, there are very few malfunctions that cannot be opened, and most of them can continue to be opened. Let's talk about them one by one. There are generally three types of faults that are commonly encountered in daily life: 1. The fault light is on; 2. There is a strange noise; 3. Weak acceleration, vehicle shaking, and significant decrease in power. First of all, let's talk about the issue of the fault light being on. Just remember the color of the fault light. If the red fault light is on, it cannot be turned on. If the yellow fault light is on, it can still be turned on, but it should also be checked in a timely manner. The yellow light is on, under what circumstances cannot it be turned on? If you feel severe shaking or loud noise while driving, and the second or third situation occurs, you cannot continue driving and should stop in a timely manner. Only when it feels normal to drive can it continue. In most cases, when the yellow light is on, there is no significant abnormality when driving.
Next is the situation of abnormal noise. If there is any abnormal noise, it is necessary to roughly determine whether it is from the engine or elsewhere. The method of judgment is to stop the car and see if the noise still exists. You can increase the throttle and listen again. If there is a noise, it is a strange noise from a certain component on the engine. If the noise is no longer present, it is a strange noise from elsewhere. Generally, if there is abnormal noise in the engine, do not continue to drive it. If there is abnormal noise in other areas, it depends on the size of the noise. If the noise is loud, do not drive it anymore. If the noise is small, continue to drive it, but immediately drive it to the repair shop. There is a type of abnormal noise to pay attention to, which is the abnormal noise in the brake system. As the brake system has a significant impact on vehicle safety, it is best to check it in a timely manner when stepping on the brake.
The last scenario is that there is a problem with the engine power system. Severe shaking and weak acceleration indicate that the engine must have damaged components. If this situation occurs, regardless of which component has a problem, continuing to operate will cause the malfunction to worsen. Taking the simplest malfunction as an example, if the spark plug of a certain cylinder is broken and only three cylinders of a four cylinder engine are working, there will be shaking phenomenon. If the engine continues to operate, it will first cause severe carbon buildup in the cylinder. Secondly, due to insufficient power, it will increase the burden on the engine, causing other cylinders to work poorly during acceleration, and even causing cylinder knocking, damaging the engine. So we can't continue driving. In fact, there is severe shaking, which looks like a serious malfunction, and the vast majority of drivers dare not drive on their own.
To sum up, as long as there is no red fault light on, driving feels like there is no significant change in power, no major abnormal noise, and the water temperature is not high, it indicates that the basic functions of the car are normal and can be driven normally. Even if there are other minor issues, you can still take it to the repair shop by yourself. If one of the above situations occurs, you cannot drive to the repair shop on your own and should call for a rescue trailer.
