Check of a condition of components of a power supply system

(each 24 000 km [15 000 miles] of run or time in 12 months)

It is worth to remember that gasoline is flammable liquid in the highest measure! At service of components of a power supply system observe all taken measures of fire safety. Do not smoke, do not come nearer to a venue of works with naked flame or the carrying unprotected by the lamp shade. Do not make service of system in the room equipped with the heating devices working at natural gas and equipped with a control torch (such as vodogre and dryers for clothes). Do not forget that gasoline is among the cancerogenic substances promoting development of a cancer - try not to allow hits of fuel on open sites of a body, use protective rubber gloves At casual unforeseen contact carefully wash out hands warm water with soap. Immediately collect the spilled fuel and do not put the rags impregnated with fuels and lubricants near sources of naked flame. Remember that the system of injection of fuel constantly is under pressure. Before starting a detachment of fuel lines, dump residual pressure. At service of components of a power supply system put on goggles. Constantly hold near at hand the class B fire extinguisher!


1. At emergence in salon of the car of a smell of gasoline during the movement or after the long parking on the open sun it is necessary to make immediately careful survey of all components of a power supply system.
2. Uncover a jellied mouth of a fuel tank and check it for existence of damages and traces of corrosion. On all perimeter of sealing laying has to pass a continuous trace of dense pressing it to a tank mouth. In case of detection of defects replace a laying/cover.
3. Check lines of giving and return of fuel for existence of cracks, cuts and other mechanical damages. Check reliability of a tightening of nipple connections of metal lines and collars of fastening of fuel hoses.

All models considered in the present manual are equipped with system of injection of fuel, and therefore before disconnecting fuel lines or to remove any components of a power supply system, it is necessary to dump residual pressure in system.

4. Whenever possible, examine injection injectors on existence of traces of leak of fuel. In case of need replace the damaged sealing rings.
5. As power supply systems, many of components (such as a fuel tank and part of fuel pipes) are located under the car, for performance of check of their state it is necessary to lift the vehicle over the earth, having hung out it on the winch, having tired out on a platform, or having established on props. Take care of reliability of fixing of the car in the lifted situation.

6. Check a fuel tank and its jellied mouth for existence of punctures, cracks and other damages. Pay special attention to survey of a place of a joint of a mouth with a tank. Sometimes rubber of a mouth starts passing fuel owing to weakening of fixing collars, or as a result of material aging (see an accompanying illustration). Here only those from possible problems are listed, diagnostics and which elimination of the reasons lies within qualification of the average amateur mechanic.

Do not make attempt of independent repair of a fuel tank at all (except for replacement of its rubber components) - contact containing even in carefully aired tank of residual fuel evaporations with a torch of a gas torch or any other source of an open flame can cause their detonation!

7. Attentively examine all rubber hoses and metal tubes of fuel lines going from a gasoline tank (see an accompanying illustration). Check a condition of material of tubes/hoses and reliability of fastening of all nipple connections. Also check the fuel pipes going to system of injection of fuel. Make necessary repair, replace defective components.

8. Components of system of catching of fuel evaporations can also be a source of emergence of a smell of gasoline. The problem of system includes branch of fuel evaporations from a gasoline tank a coal adsorber in which they accumulate during the parking of the car, and from where after start of the engine are removed in the inlet pipeline for the purpose of burning in combustion chambers.

9. The most right symptom of violation of serviceability of functioning of system of catching of fuel evaporations is emergence of a strong smell of gasoline in a motive compartment. Check a state located under the car (in its back part) a coal adsorber and hoses brought to it (see an accompanying illustration).
