Advice 1: How to add water to maintenance free batteries

Most modern cars are equipped with maintenance-free batteries. In such batteries do not have to periodically add distilled water, since its expense is small. However, the need may still arise.
How to add water to maintenance free batteries
You will need
  • - distilled water;
  • - disposable syringe with a long needle;
  • - awl;
  • sealant.
Instruction
1
If your car was difficult to start, perhaps it's because of the battery. Have maintenance-free batteries, the housing is completely closed, hole for water is not. Labyrinth vapour recovery system condenses and back to the evaporating electrolyte. However, a small part of the water evaporates through the air vent. You may be able to return the health of your battery, top up distilled water.
2
Open the hood. Look at the eye of the density indicator. Green – battery is fully charged, black – requires recharging, white indicates a low electrolyte level.
3
Maintenance-free battery is completely sealed enclosure. Remove the sticker. Do not open the battery cover, because then it will be difficult to fix it still.
4
Through the transparent plastic cover is clearly visible internal structure of the chamber, partitions. You can determine the number of cells and therefore place the fill water or check the electrolyte density. Any assistant tool, for example a thin awl, make a hole. It must be done as accurately as possible.
5
With the help of a disposable syringe slowly (5 ml) refill through the hole in the Bank, where there is a density indicator, distilled water. After the appearance in the eye of the black or green add another 20 ml.
6
To determine the level of the electrolyte lower the needle into the banks and pull the rod back. As soon as the syringe began to take an electrolyte, check the level with a marker on the needle. If the battery is made of light plastic, it is possible to determine the level of electrolyte in the lumen. Measure it with a ruler.
7
Add the water to the other banks as long as the electrolyte level in them reaches the mark on the needle.
8
Seal openings with sealant or pick up the rubber tube. Gently shake the battery to the electrolyte mixed up.

Advice 2 : How to add water to the battery

When "boiling" batteries (battery) decreases the level and increases the density of the electrolyte. If time does not take the necessary measures, the battery will eventually lose its capacity. To restore these figures can, if you add water to the battery.

1
Clean the surface of battery
Surface cleaning of batteries is necessary for several reasons. First, the surface may be contaminated splashed sulfuric acid, that is unsafe for working and his clothes, and secondly, dirt may get inside the battery and cause it damage, thirdly, to work in clean pleasant. To clean the surface just gently wipe with a damp cloth, it is better moistened with a solution of baking soda. The deepening of upper lid, especially around the tubes (or water holes), clean better with a match.
2
Add water
Pour only distilled water in those banks where the electrolyte level below the minimum mark. To determine this in a semi-transparent battery can be "risks" on the sides of the body. Inside water holes tides, indicating the upper and lower levels. If no tag, you should focus on a higher level of 10-15 mm above top of plates. Add water to the battery is best using a blower, a large medical syringe, or by using aerometer (or rather outer bulb) to measure the density of the electrolyte.
3
To measure the electrolyte density
The density of the electrolyte after the flushed water is not restored immediately. This is because in a battery between the plates has a number of small intervals, and mixing of fluids is very slow (sometimes the density is equalized in a few weeks). So, after add water, the battery settles within a few hours. Only then, the densities closer to the real, and it can be measured. For accurate determination of density is necessary to make several measurements at equal intervals of time. And if the difference between the present and previous measurements is negligible, the battery is ready for operation after recharging.

Advice 3 : How to maintain maintenance free battery

Maintenance-free batteries are not designed to work with them: they have no holes for adding electrolyte. But this does not mean that they basically do not need maintenance. The fact that these batteries are designed to work under certain conditions, which in our country is not always feasible. So, the technique should help.
How to maintain maintenance free battery
You will need
  • - awl or screwdriver
  • a syringe with a long needle,
  • - distilled water.
Instruction
1
Look at the eye color of the battery indicator. If he is white, the battery urgently needs help, or even replacement. Disconnect the ignition and lighting of the car. Note that this can wear off the data radio, watches and other electronics. Take action against failure alarm.

To add electrolyte, tear off the sticker from the top cover of the battery. Using an awl, make holes in the center of the round soldered caps. Another option is using a screwdriver to tear off those plastic things to open the hole. Fill the syringe with distilled water, then slowly and gradually introduce her into the inner cell of the battery. When the electrolyte level reaches the desired, eye of the indicator should turn black. Then pour another 20 ml of distillate.
2
If the color of the eye black, the electrolyte requires quite a bit. Do the same opening, but each time only pour 5 ml of distilled water. To verify a sufficient level by using reverse rod syringe: if the distillate is extracted with a minimum dip of the needle, so the process can be completed.

Fill the resulting hole. Punctures Sheila pour conventional sealant. If you have done any large holes, then you can choose the suitable size of rubber tube. For greater reliability, glue them along the entire length of the circle. Shake the battery and connect to the terminals of the charger.
3
Maintenance-free batteries need regular care. Keep them in a temperature range from 0 to 27°C. Grease the terminals with special grease or petroleum jelly. Charge the battery, which stood for a long time without work. This should be done every 3 months, otherwise it will lose performance. Separate battery models require recharging during the year. To detect the decrease of battery power, check the drive belt tension.
Note
Maintenance-free batteries are designed to operate at positive temperatures.
Useful advice
Batteries, worked with a low level of distillate, it is better to replace.

Advice 4 : How to top up the oil in the box machine

Modern automatic transmissions do not require replacement or topping up the oil during the whole period of operation. For this reason, in their case of a missing fuel filler neck. In boxes of old design there is a need for periodic oil changes, spelled out in the instructions to the vehicle, and this procedure is significantly different from replace the engine oil. There is also a need to monitor and refill if necessary oil.
How to top up the oil in the box machine
Instruction
1
According to international standards for oils for automatic transmissions every 15,000 km (12,000 miles) you need to control the oil level in the box and refill it. If annual mileage is less than the specified digits, control the oil level at least 1 times a year. When you purchase a used car make sure to immediately replace the oil in the automatic transmission.
2
To check the oil level in the automatic transmission, set the car on a viewing hole or overpass or raise it on the lift. Switch off the engine and pick up the car from the bottom (so comfortable) and look on the pan control and the dipstick oil. Remove it, wipe dry and install in probe tube back. Then pull it out again and visually compare the oil level marked on the dipstick marks. The lowermost, dry place on the probe will correspond to the oil level inside the gearbox. While the top two marks you made on the dipstick (they may be the only) indicate the correct oil level for cold and warm condition of the transmission.
3
To check the level of oil should be used twice: on both cold and hot transmission. To warm up the automatic transmission, it is sufficient to drive the vehicle for about 15 km. The lower mark on the dipstick control is intended to approximate the amount of oil when changing. In addition, the control probe can carry information about the conditions of the control: the desired position of the selector automatic transmission and type of lubricant used.
4
Cars Honda and Acura oil you want to verify after reaching a predetermined operating temperature and with the engine off. On the cars equipped with automatic transmissions, Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Proton, Jeep Cherokee / Grand Cherokee oil level is monitored if it is set to the N position of the gear selector. The same condition must be observed for cars of Audi and Volkswagen with three-speed automatic transmission.
5
Many models of transmission, especially in Germany, have a test tube in the dipstick hole. The feature of the control procedures and adding oil is the inability to perform these operations without lifting the car. The good point to pour the oil in the box transmission is impossible. Five speed BMW boxes this tube is used for Gulf oil.
6
Make sure that the new oil is compatible with the existing. Refill the new oil to the level hole for the dipstick. After adding oil, check its level when muted and with the engine running. The gear selector must be in position P or N position, depending on the conditions of the procedure topping.
