Parts you can not take apart
With the electric controlled engine getting popularized, maintaining it correctly is getting more and more important. But you don’t want to disassemble oil pipe connections on the high pressure side when the engine is still working, like high pressure oil pipe or common rail oil pipe.
The pressure of common rail oil pipe is extremely high, please separate it after shutting the engine down. Normally the pressure can be at more than 2000 bar when the power is on. It’s like the pressure that a limousine is on a area sizes a piece of nail. Once the oil connection get disassembled the high speed fuel would be like sharp knife. What if the stream of oil pump into human eyes?
Right way: Waiting for a while after the engine dies you can check and separate the part.
A potential killer- tire bugle
Tire bugle is a big potential danger especially the front tires. Because it will cause an accident. So check and change tires as soon as you find a bugle on your tires.
Normally most drivers ckeck tires with a stick hitting on the tire after stopping the truck straight away. However it’s dangerous because the tire is still hot and the inner pressure is high. Using a stick hitting tires would cause a explosion.
Right way: Using a pro pressure meter and change tires if it has a bugle.
Be careful to open Radiator lid
Lots accidents cause by opening the radiator straight away after the car stops. The temperature could be very high after the car driving for several hours,especially in Africa countries like Ghana, Kenya, if you open the radiator lid right after the car stops, the steam will burn your skin.
Right way: Waiting for the engine cool down and decompression then open the radiator meanwhile using a wet towel for the protection.
Don’t lose screw with violence
Most of people worry about the immobility when they install tires or tie goods. As a result, people will stamp on the crowbar to tighten it. But you will get hurt once your foot get slipped.
