Does Tesla need maintenance?

As a leader in new energy vehicles, Tesla is well recognized by consumers from all over the world. Since domestic production, the sales volume in my country is second to none. As a new energy vehicle, from the perspective of the structure of pure electric vehicles, pure electric vehicles do not need to change the oil. Pure electric vehicles are composed of three power units, batteries, motors, and vehicle electronic controls to form the power unit components of the vehicle. From the point of view, there is no need for this work, that is to say, all electrical components do not need to replace the oil. Then the additional maintenance is mainly for the inspection of the "three-electric system", which are motor system, power battery and electronic control system. . In addition, the regular maintenance except for the replacement and maintenance of vulnerable parts such as brake pads, wipers, air-conditioning filters, tires, etc. The regular maintenance of the cooling system, braking system, and transmission suspension is similar to that of a traditional car. Regular maintenance is required.

For Tesla's maintenance, the manufacturer also gave specific instructions.

1. It is recommended that you replace the cab air filter every 12 months. ,Air Conditioning System. This is for the health of the car owner. The air contains a lot of dust, silt and other substances, which are easy to adhere to the air filter when using the air conditioner. If it is too dirty, it will breed bacteria, reduce power, and deteriorate performance. Therefore, regular cleaning is necessary. This fuel truck also needs to be replaced regularly.

2. It is recommended to check the tires every 16,000-20,000 kilometers. This can help us understand the specific conditions of vehicle tires. According to the tire's wear condition, determine whether it is necessary to perform tire rotation, dynamic balance and four-wheel alignment, thereby prolonging the service life of the tire and steering components.

3. It is recommended to check whether the brake fluid is contaminated every 2 years and replace it according to the specific situation. This is the same as a fuel car. The brake fluid is changed regularly to ensure the safety of daily driving.

4. For some models, the battery coolant needs to be replaced regularly. We all know that new energy vehicles are powered by a large battery. While working, they will definitely generate heat. Therefore, there must be coolant to absorb heat and maintain battery temperature. In the early days, Tesla advised customers to replace the battery coolant in 4 years or 80,000 kilometers, but now this item no longer exists on the official website. There should be new technical means, which should not be needed in new cars. However, if the manufacturer has suggestions, it should be maintained and replaced according to the manufacturer's recommendations.

In addition to the suggestions given by the manufacturer, in daily driving, we must also pay attention to all aspects of the state of the vehicle. We must pay attention to the following aspects.

The first is the correct use of batteries. During use, you should accurately grasp the charging time according to the actual situation, refer to the usual frequency of use and mileage, and grasp the frequency of charging. During normal driving, if it shows that it needs to be charged, you should stop using it and charge it as soon as possible, otherwise the battery will be over-discharged and its life will be seriously shortened. The charging time should not be too long, it shows that the battery is full, it is best to unplug the power immediately. The battery is charged for a long time, causing the battery to overheat. When conditions permit, try to choose slow charging, which is more conducive to battery maintenance. In normal use, pay attention to the cruising range. If the charging time becomes longer or the cruising range suddenly becomes shorter during the use of the battery, it is necessary to consider whether there is a problem with the battery. Go to the designated place for inspection in time to avoid greater losses.

Avoid violent driving and protect the motor. When the electric vehicle starts, carries people, or goes uphill, try to avoid slamming and accelerating to form an instantaneous high current discharge. High current discharge will easily lead to lead sulfate crystals, which will damage the physical properties of the battery plates. A large current flows through the motor, causing the motor to be overloaded. If things go on like this, the motor may strike early.

Pay attention to the prompt information on the vehicle display. In addition to batteries and motors, electric vehicles also have vehicle controllers. As the "brain" of the vehicle, the vehicle controller needs to detect and direct all the actions of the vehicle. If there is a problem with the vehicle, it will be reflected on the display, and the vehicle will make correct judgments based on the prompts.

In summary, new energy vehicles are increasingly recognized by everyone, not only Tesla, but also other new energy vehicles. In daily driving, we must pay attention to maintenance to better serve our owners.
