Automobile is an important means of transportation for people to travel. With the continuous improvement of people's living standards, automobile has become a necessity of life. It is also necessary to use it too much. Many people do not pay much attention to it at ordinary times, which may lead to major problems. How to deal with the high temperature at the root of gearbox failure?
The reason why 4S stores or special repair shops can't fix the gearbox failure and often take surgical overhaul is that they don't know what caused the gearbox failure. It's not uncommon to treat the symptoms but not the root cause.
According to the data of the automatic transmission repair Association, "more than 90% of all automatic transmission failures are caused by high temperature and overheating." Soon after the car starts, the temperature of the automatic transmission oil will rise. In case of climbing, high temperature environment, continuous ultra-high speed driving and stop and go in the urban area, the automatic transmission oil temperature will exceed the safe temperature (80 ℃).
High temperature will damage the quality and friction characteristics of the automatic transmission oil, increase friction and wear, and the transmission noise will follow. At the same time, oil sludge (impurities or dirt) will also be generated inside the transmission (such as valve body and control pipeline), resulting in the collapse and impact of the transmission.
If the temperature exceeds 120 ℃, the rubber sealing material will begin to harden and age, and the seal is not tight and leaks, resulting in hydraulic pressure drop after comparison. If the temperature is higher, the transmission begins to slip, which in turn causes the temperature to rise higher. (Audi and other high-end models will alarm and enter the transmission protection mode) if it is not solved in time, the transmission will be scrapped.
黔西南自动变速箱维修人员参考一个定理： 在正常的80℃工作温度下， 温度每上升10℃，自动变速箱油的使用寿命会减半。例如，90℃时，自动变速箱油的使用寿命会降到75000公里。
At 100 ℃ (this temperature often occurs in many gearboxes), the service life is only about 35000 km. At 120 ℃, it is 15000 kilometers. When the temperature rises by another 10 degrees Celsius, the service life is only 7500 kilometers. When the temperature exceeds 146 or 148 ℃, the automatic transmission will burn out before 1500 or 2000 km.
