WHY DO YOU NEED A SPOILER ON A CAR

Often on passing cars you have to see a spoiler installed on the trunk lid, or as it is also called a wing. Surely, you wondered why this spoiler is needed, does it perform any function, or is it just a decorative body element and is installed in accordance with the preferences of the car owner? It is to this question that we will try to answer you in this article.

Two spoiler functions

Spoilers can be installed on the vehicle by the manufacturer or by the vehicle owner. Oddly enough, but the car spoiler has 2 purposes - functional and decorative. In the first case, the spoiler literally pushes the rear of the car to the ground when it is moving at high speed. As a result of the action of such a force, the car holds the road better, has full adhesion of the wheels to the road surface. In the second case, some cars really look much better with the installed wing. That is why the manufacturer himself offers cars with an already installed wing.

Based on what has been said, we can conclude that there are 2 types of car spoilers: those that really work, have their effect on handling (but often such spoilers look very sloppy, cumbersome) and those that are created as decoration (they are more beautiful, but they do not carry any functional usefulness).

Spoiler in action

Very often, a spoiler is installed on sports cars, the purpose of which is to drive at unimaginable speeds. At speeds above 100 km / h, the air flow, filling the space that the car cuts, creates vortices behind the car, which, in turn, leads to a decrease in the stability of the car. The spoiler, as an aerodynamic element, holds the car through the air vortices and prevents them from rocking the car. However, in many situations, especially if the car is rear-wheel drive and if it is able to move very quickly, installing a rear spoiler alone has a small effect in improving handling, on the contrary, with a leading rear axle and a spoiler installed, the front of the car rises, as a result of which the car will much less responsive to steering.

To avoid loss of controllability on a rear-wheel drive car, experts recommend installing 2 spoilers - one on the trunk lid, the second on the front of the car. In common people, the front spoiler is called a body kit, its function is similar to that of the rear spoiler.

Why does the Vaz-2107 stove not heat up

And again the weather threatens with cold weather. For those who are not all right with the heater, the most important question was how to make the “stove” warm? First of all, we will determine the cause of the malfunction. The culprit may be a subcooled engine, an “airy” cooling system, or a malfunction of the heater itself. If the stove fan does not spin - the wiring is faulty - see here.

Often, the reason for the cold in the cabin is a subcooled engine

Signs - temperature on the gauge in the white zone, the engine takes a long time to warm up. Normal warming up at a temperature of -20 looks like this: we start the engine, in 8-10 minutes at idle the engine should warm up to 40-50 degrees (the very beginning of the white sector of the temperature indicator scale). If the temperature rises higher, good, less is bad. The thermostat is defective. Further, we go in 1-2 gear, and in 5-8 minutes the temperature rises to 80 (the border of the white and green zones). The replacement thermostat has not warmed up to 80! Temporarily, you can do with the insulation of the radiator with cardboard or something else. But do not forget that if the engine is given a load (stuck and skidding), it may boil. Therefore, the cardboard should be easily and quickly pulled out.

Air in cooling system

First of all, we check the level of antifreeze in the expansion tank, the serviceability of the radiator plug. If the antifreeze is diluted with water, it is bad, it will harden, it must be replaced. If the radiator plug is faulty, air will remain in the system, and this will lead to poor circulation and cold in the cabin. We buy and put a new plug, add antifreeze and the shortage disappears.

The air lock may remain even after the repair of the cooling system. Air is removed by driving the car, preheated to 80 gr. engine, up a hill to raise the front. Then, having removed the radiator plug, the engine is driven at 2000 - 3000 rpm for several minutes. After the air is released, it remains only to top up the antifreeze and close the radiator cap.

Next, check the position of the fuser control levers

Blue - controls the air supply. Red - antifreeze supply tap. They must be open (to the right as far as it will go). Sometimes the faucet turns sour. Find it under the glove compartment and check - it should open all the way, you can help with your hand, simultaneously with the lever. Only, work carefully, the parts are delicate, fragile, you can break. It is convenient to move the lever with your left hand, and turn the tap with your right hand.
