Car with 3-5 years, the following 7 rubber parts must be checked and replaced.
1.Engine foot glue
The purpose of the engine foot glue is to isolate the engine vibration from the cockpit and fix the engine foot and frame with rubber pads, so as to achieve a certain damping effect and make the engine work smoothly.
Usually the engine is oxidized when the driving distance exceeds 50,000 kilometers or the driving time exceeds 5 years. The elastic corpse reduces the damping effect of the engine and can not effectively isolate the vibration of the engine from the frame so that the vehicle leaves the vehicle. Now the boom is loud, but it's fast or abnormal. Many toll collectors often overlook this problem, when the engine appears, think about it, first check the engine itself, but ignore the foot glue oxidation. Replacing the foot glue is not complicated, to the roadside general automobile repair shop can be replaced, the cost is only a few hundred dollars, you can solve the car engine abnormal sound idle jitters problem.
2.Suspension swing arm rubber bearing
The suspension swing arm rubber bearings are common in the McPherson front suspension which is now used in driving vehicles. Because of its mechanical characteristics, rubber bearings are needed to cushion and limit vibration and play a supporting role. Many consumers are very strange to suspension swing arm rubber bearings, because it is possible to love the car will not be replaced, but it does affect our car driving experience. Thanks for the help and support of Chongqing Feilong jiangli’s Technical department.Many consumers will feel that after a few years old cars are no longer as easy to drive as new cars, suspension jump response is not very sensitive, and even the road conditions are not very good road surface, the body will jump very seriously, steering at high speed and the stability of the vehicle at high speed is reduced, these are the impact of aging suspension brackets.
Replacing the rubber bracket of the suspension arm requires the use of a professional lift, so consumers had better go to a professional body for replacement.
3.Shockproof top rubber bearing
The rubber bearing of the shock absorber roof is a cushioning mechanism which can alleviate the vibration of the suspension when the suspension jumps and transmit to the fulcrum of the frame. The early rising part of the vehicle, the inverted suspension is fixed and manufactured. Instead, it uses insomnia so that the body can be used only after the stability of the road surface is reduced. The rubber is used as the material of manufacture, but the design life is five years left. Right. Vehicles passing through the bumpy road caused by suspension ministries to issue abnormal sound, or suspension jump ten people response, not very sensitive, usually suspension too much vibration, resulting in a reduced sense of carriage ride.
4.Crankcase rear oil seal
Crankcase oil leakage is a problem many owners will encounter, especially in the use of several years of old cars, crankcase oil leakage let many owners are very distressed. Usually the main reasons for oil leakage of crankcase are: first, there is no use of professional lubricant seal in the manufacturing process, in the use of the process of vibration displacement caused by oil leakage. Secondly, because of the engine oil seal design problems, the use of a period of time after the force caused the deformation of the oil seal groove, and ultimately oil leakage. The above two are the quality problems of the manufacturer, but after more than five years of engine life, crankcase tank with aging aggravated, will produce small cracks, will also lead to oil leakage.
5.Drive shaft damping rubber
For some rear-drive and four-drive vehicles after several years of use will encounter the need to replace the transmission rubber shock absorber, the replacement of shock absorber rubber is very time-consuming, labor-consuming, very high, but if not replaced in time will cause permanent deformation damage to the transmission shaft, causing resonance in the front and rear transmission of the car, affecting the line. The car is safe. In our normal driving process, the transmission shaft vibrates with the body and this traditional process is not smooth, so the need for such damping rubber to prevent the transmission shaft should be centralized vertical damage, so the transmission shaft needs transmission rubber shock absorption.
6.Frame sealing strip
The replacement of the frame sealing strip is also a problem that many car owners will ignore. The frame sealing strip is pressed on the special rail groove by external force. Exposed to oxidation outside the car, the sealing of the car body will decrease. The infiltrated rain will penetrate into the car body through the crack. The acid rain will corrode the car body inside, and eventually lead to the corrosion. The rust inside the car body is very difficult to deal with. The strength of the car body gradually decreases, and eventually the car body may be rusted through. Therefore, changing the frame seal strip in time is one of the main measures to protect the body from rust.
7.Rubber hose for engine oil circuit
The oil pipeline of the engine needs to withstand the high temperature and pressure of the engine, so the consequences are very dangerous once it aging and finally ruptures. Usually the service life of the engine input pipeline is about four years, and cracks will appear on the surface of the aging pipeline as time goes on, which is very easy to spontaneous combustion in the high temperature environment of the engine compartment. Once the driver smells a smell of gasoline through the air conditioner, he must be on the alert.

When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.
Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.
You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.
Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.
The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.
Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.
Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.

According to foreign media reports, sales of light vehicles in the United States last year (2018) were not only higher than those in 2017, but also exceeded analysts' expectations, with a total of 17.3 million vehicles sold. However, analysts and industry observers again said that due to a variety of economic factors, the U.S. light vehicle market will show a downward trend in 2019, but the decline is relatively small.
Many analysts expect U.S. light vehicle sales to range from 16.5 million to 17 million in 2019. J.D. Power expects between 16.9 million and 17 million vehicles, with retail sales of light vehicles between 13.6 million and 13.7 million.
As in 2018, the relative strength of the U.S. economy masked concerns about new car prices and rising interest rates. But in addition to these, there will be other problems in 2019, such as the impact of tariff and tax reform.
As a auto parts supplier, Chongqing Feilong Jiangli will keep up-to-date information on new information and new energy industries.
