How outbids quickly hide serious engine problems and fool buyers

A large number of used cars with various power unit defects have appeared on the Russian car market. And all thanks to cunning dealers who very skillfully hide the shortcomings of the “iron horses” in order to quickly get rid of them. However, recognizing the deception is very real. And how exactly to do this, says the portal “AvtoVzglyad”.

If the car has serious technical problems, for example with the engine, it can be sold quickly, only at a steep discount. But resellers do not need additional discounts, and therefore, without a twinge of conscience, they proceed to dishonest “shamanization” of the engine.

Take, for example, low compression in the cylinders. There can be many reasons for the “disease”: rubbing of the same cylinders, stuck piston rings, loose valves. But the result is always the same: the engine is sent in for an expensive overhaul. What do overbids do to hide such a “nuance”?

To equalize the pressure, the seller pours a little thick oil through the candle wells. So the lubricant fills the scuffs and scratches, and even a special device shows the norm. Usually it is 10-15 kg / cm2 for gasoline engines, but this indicator does not hold constantly. After a while the fat is gone and the customer discovers a surprise.

Wait for the engine to idle so as not to step on the “bait”. After about ten minutes, you can assess his condition: troit or working unevenly – it is better to refuse such a car.

Another problem is several grease streaks on the drive unit housing. Usually they are removed in various special ways, but something is missing. For example, if even small dirty spots are visible around the oil filler neck, it is likely that the crankcase gas system has not been cleaned for a long time. This is not a sentence, but this operation is not cheap, since it involves partial disassembly of the front of the car.

However, if the engine compartment is all sparkling with cleanliness, then this is also a reason to be wary. The fact is that “moidodyr” is not recommended by many car manufacturers (for example, Ford). A motorcycle that has not been climbed into must be covered with a dry layer of road dust, but without black stripes.

Finally, also inspect the exhaust system. Outbids sometimes clean it too, which is a bad sign. Therefore repeat the check after warming up the car and a test drive. If you see heavy soot in the pipe, there may be problems with the coupling of the phase regulator or a malfunction of the gas distribution phases. These failures are expensive to repair. In addition, there may be “malfunctions” of the electronic control unit that are not felt while driving. Due to incorrect commands from the “brain”, the fuel mixture turns out to be too rich, as a result of which gasoline does not burn out completely.
