The parking spaces in the community are narrow, and they are all on the side of the flowerbeds. There is no way that you have to turn the steering wheel on the spot to park in place. I heard that turning the direction on the spot hurts the tire and the steering wheel. What should I do? How to avoid it? Discuss.

Of course it hurts the car very much. It is recommended to carry out meticulous maintenance according to the following car maintenance manual mentioned on the Internet. My car is a second-hand car that I bought for 90,000 yuan. There is no malfunction. The paint is as bright as new. In the garage, when I need to go out, the whole family is pushing behind. When I pass the speed bump, I will find a few people to carry it. I will rotate the tire half a circle every day to prevent long-term compression and deformation of the same part of the tire. In a few days, I will use a car lift to lift the car up to prevent uneven stress on the suspension. The air conditioner has never been turned on. I am afraid that the condenser inside will become moldy. I also stir the oil several times a day. I am afraid that it will damage the oil seal of the engine oil pan after a long time. I also sealed the gaps between the doors and windows with glue, fearing that small advertisements stuffed by others would jam the glass lifter. I always disassemble the windshield wipers and put them in the quilt. I am afraid that the windshield wipers will deteriorate due to prolonged exposure to the sun. I also apply Luhua 5S extra-pressed peanut oil to the door frame sealing strips every day, fearing that the glue sticks will become hard due to oxidation. I also disassemble and recharge the battery every day, fearing irreversible vulcanization due to long-term self-discharge of the battery. I don’t want to turn on the turn signal when I turn, because I make people gesturing behind for fear of burning out the bulb. I measure the tire pressure every two steps I take. I’m afraid that the tire pressure will be too high or too low and the tire life will be attenuated. Every few hundred meters I have to get out of the car to pick up the pebbles caught in the tire pattern, for fear of puncturing the tire. Every time I needed to make a big turn, I hired a few people to lift the front of my car to turn, fearing that the steering wheel would be killed and the booster pump would be damaged. I change the engine oil every ten miles or so. I am afraid that the metal impurities in the engine oil will wear the cylinder wall. I will change all the tires when I go to high speeds. I am afraid of punctures. When parking, I always use a laser level to measure whether the ground is level, fearing that the uneven ground will cause the vehicle frame to be distorted. I didn’t dare to pull the handbrake. I used bricks to pad it. I was afraid that the handbrake cable would be stretched for a long time and it would cause irreversible elastic failure. In the summer, I also use my sunscreen clothes to cover the tires, fearing that the strong light will accelerate tire cracks. When parked under a tree, I would place a bird repellent on the roof of the car, fearing that bird droppings would corrode the paint. At the same time, I will wax the car once a day to prevent the paint from degrading and discoloring. When washing the car, I never use a towel. I am afraid that the towel will be mixed with small sand particles and wear the paint. I just lick it directly with my tongue. Okay, let’s not talk about it. I drove 20 kilometers in one breath just now, but I feel so distressed. I want to change the oil of my car again, and pick up the pebbles on the tires by the way.

No matter how many directions you need to make at a time, as long as it is an ordinary household, I am sure that the intensity of the steering gear of your car for a month is not as strong as our driving school for a day. And under our use intensity, it takes three to five years for the hydraulic steering gear to have problems. The electronic steering gear is hard to say. The oldest electronic steering gear has been five years old, and there is no large-scale problem. So with the strength of the home, you really don’t have to consider the steering machine when you turn the direction in place. You don’t have to worry about the tires too much. The front wheels of a trainer car will be bald in about three months. However, if you turn on the spot hundreds of times a day, ordinary household tires may take nearly three years to change them (usually around 60,000 kilometers). The wear has reached the upper limit). Wheeling on the spot several times a day will not greatly shorten the life of the tire. The wear is mainly from daily driving.

As an engineer with ten years of experience in the machinery industry and a teacher of vehicle engineering with three years of experience, I can tell you clearly: “Don’t worry about it, just work hard.” Tires are consumables. Change it anyway. The steering gear is an important component related to safety. Once a problem occurs, it is often a car crash. Therefore, it must be designed so that it will not have serious failures under the worst conditions of use. That is to choose the highest safety factor and the highest service life requirement. To put it simply, under normal conditions of use and normal service life, it will not be damaged by any tossing. If a designer designs the steering gear to turn the direction on the spot, it will be broken, and his boss will fire him as soon as possible. Because this guy is not competent at all.

This operation may damage the two parts of the car. The tires and steering gear tires are vulnerable parts and have a useful life, and the appearance is easy to judge and easy to replace. Without special discussion here, we will mainly discuss the power steering gear hidden inside the car body. The steering gear is responsible for amplifying the force exerted by the driver on the steering wheel and transmitting it to the front wheels to control the steering of the vehicle. In the steel-like structure of the electronic steering gear, we imagine the most extreme situation: in a static state, the wheels are completely locked (for example, the car is parked on the side of the road crocks), but the driver does not know it, and uses full force to steer the direction. Even in this case, the steering gear designed by the car factory will not be damaged. Make a simple estimate: the maximum torque of the steering gear design is generally 110NM, and the steering wheel diameter is calculated according to 35cm. That requires 628.5N of force on the steering wheel, which is equivalent to the force of a 63kg adult standing on the steering wheel, usually sitting on the arm. The strength of is definitely not able to reach this order of magnitude. In this process, the most easily damaged is the motor, mainly because the instantaneous load power is too large and the motor is burned. In the motor controller, an algorithm will be added to consider the instantaneous current rise speed, and based on the vehicle speed and the force applied to the steering wheel, determine whether it is in an abnormal situation. If it is, it will actively reduce the current input to the motor. In order to avoid damage to the motor, after the motor is protected, it is necessary to rely solely on human power to break the steering shaft, which almost requires a force of 15-20KN and a weight of 1.5-2 tons. It is far beyond the limit of human beings. Since instantaneous power can’t destroy him, does it mean that he will lose his life if he often turns the steering wheel on the spot? Before the steering gear is delivered to the OEM, a large number of bench tests will be done to ensure the durability of the product. Let’s take a look at the harsh bench test: at room temperature, the steering wheel is at a temperature of 800-1000 degrees per second. The speed is from the far left to the far right to the far left, and the speed is 5 hours in rapid succession. In the case of minus 30 degrees or 65 degrees, the steering wheel rotates back and forth at a speed of 800-1000 degrees/sec for 30 minutes. The longest single routine test time can reach 30 days. This extremely harsh test environment of 24 hours ensures that if only It is a short time to turn the steering wheel on the spot, and it is almost harmless to the steering shaft. However, there is a case, if some old cars use hydraulic power steering. Since the hydraulic system cannot identify the working conditions, it has been full output before the pressure relief valve is opened. When the steering wheel is continuously turned on for more than 20 minutes, the temperature of the liquid may increase, thereby accelerating the steering hydraulic pump and the rubber in the oil pipe. Aging speed. Under normal conditions, this is almost impossible. Therefore, steering on the spot will not cause any damage to the steering booster.

I am a rookie driver. I got my driver’s license at the age of 61. I often turn the steering wheel on the spot. But my entire strategy for buying a car is that if I could buy a luxury car of 300,000 yuan, I want to buy a domestic car of 100,000 yuan. The saved 200,000 yuan is also assumed to be spent, that is, it is all spent on gasoline money, parking fees, and maintenance fees. The repair cost is above, so in this respect, a local tyrant with no shortage of money. For example, the first time a tire is punctured, I ask for a new tire when I drive to a 4s shop. I think safety is the first thing. If something is not pleasing to the eye, change it. Every time the time is up, I must maintain it, and I persuade and encourage the 4s shop to see it. Anything that is not pleasing to the eye must be replaced by me! But the 4s shop resolutely refused to change the tires for me, saying that it was enough to replace the tires. If the tires were not changed like this, I had to admit that it was just a replacement. For example, if I go to Beijing for a holiday, I drive to the underground parking lot of Xianyang Airport and get on the plane. After more than ten days, I return from the parking lot and drive home. My colleagues are surprised. Yeah! My answer is, me! Local tycoon! Not bad money!

Conclusion: The car is not that fragile. Driving in place will cause some loss but basically no effect on the car, but it is best to avoid it. For example: the teaching of driving in the driving school is the teaching password. When I was learning to drive, I remembered that there was a password that was “The car is turning back to the right and slowly falling”. No curse. (The coach actually cherishes the car. If the car is broken, it will affect the performance and waste time by going to the car repair shop of the driving school. If it really has a big impact on the car, the coach will definitely not be like a teacher.) In other words, every The coach cars are endlessly “ravaged” by pure novices every day. Basically every day, they have to turn the direction and operate like this, and the number of times is not only single digits, and I haven’t seen the coach car getting old and broken. Mainly affected parts: 1. Wheels: tires and rims. Tires: the friction of the tires in the same direction will greatly increase, which will have a certain impact on the life of the tires. (Main impact) Wheel hub: When the tire rotates on the ground, the rotation axis of the wheel is not in the center of the wheel, so the tire has forward and backward forces when turning on the ground. This is a “contradictory force”. The wheel hub also has a slight impact. 2. When the suspension system is stressed, it can be seen that the front wheel rotation axis is not on the wheel, but is biased toward the car body. At this time, the steering wheel is also moving forward and backward, plus the kingpin inward and backward. Almost all the suspension system and the body are involved when the steering is affected, which is why you will feel the front of the car moving slightly when you turn the direction on the spot. 3. The steering system is stressed. The steering system of the car has great resistance to turning on the spot. The steering wheel power-assisted system requires the hydraulic pump to output more power to obtain a relatively large power. The steering system must bear a greater load when the steering system receives a correspondingly greater force. . Therefore, the car is not that fragile, and steering in place has little effect on the car, but it is best to avoid it. Avoidance method: Develop the habit of steering the vehicle after it moves. We should develop the habit of steering the vehicle after it moves. You can turn the direction quickly when the wheels turn slightly to achieve the same purpose as steering the vehicle on the spot. Reduce the frictional resistance between the tire and the ground, reduce the excessive load of the steering machine and the excessive wear of the direction linkage system.

My car was made in 2006. Never go to a 4s shop for maintenance, change the oil once every 10,000 miles (1w5km), never wash the car, never warm up the car after starting up and drive directly to 90km/h. When accelerating, the speed will reach 3k5. The tires are never maintained. Use an inflator to inflate to maintain tire pressure. When you get out of the parking space, you always turn the steering wheel on the spot. Refueling is always the cheapest. Now in 2020, a total of 11w miles (170,000 kilometers) have been driven. There is no problem with the mechanical system. The long-distance trip was 1,500 kilometers in the first two days. I’m not a professional car maker, but I think that the car has been developed to the present, it is very resistant to build, easy not to break, there is no need to over-cherish it.

I used to do a test with a buddy who was doing component tests in my first company. At the beginning, he wanted to do a quick and durable verification test on the steering system. Although he also did a test on the components of the steering gear on the bench, But after all, it is difficult for the bench test to fully simulate the load of the real vehicle, so this test is available. There are many items in the experiment, such as how fast and slow the steering wheel can turn on the concrete floor. For example, the direction of the fast hitting direction hits the shoulder of the road, such as the steering wheel is killed quickly while driving. These working conditions are all designed by me. All in all, basically, you can come across all kinds of steering conditions in your life, and not occasionally, but continuously (my hands were rubbing smoke at the time, the buddy was in the car I’m almost vomiting), you can imagine how much pressure is on the steering system. Finally, due to some of my personal reasons, I left the job before the experiment was completed. I don’t know if he still did it. However, judging from the data collected during the experiment at that time, it’s important to talk about the impact. The power received is indeed the greatest, but even after being abused by me in various ways. The car is still strong, so occasionally you should hit hard in such conditions. If it breaks, you can blame me

Recommend related popular science videos at station B. Especially I remember that there was a bald-headed up (yes, brother Miao), he mentioned this problem, it will hurt, but it is minimal. Turning the steering wheel in place mainly wears out the tires of the car, but it does not have much impact on other parts of the car. The design was originally designed for you to turn the steering wheel in place, otherwise you can’t get through many places in the car. Even the tires wear a little bit. Many old drivers don’t like to turn the steering wheel on the spot because they have good skills, but when they encounter a troublesome parking space and adjust the angle, they boldly turn on the steering wheel on the spot. As long as the quality is not too bad, There is basically no problem.

Uninvited! Nowadays, all cars are power steering wheels, hydraulic or electronic power. So you don’t have to worry about wearing parts like the steering gear when you turn the direction on the spot, only the tires are injured. I often turn directions on the spot, because parking spaces are tight everywhere. Turning directions on the spot can reduce at least one U-turn movement, which is more fuel-efficient, because the car is the most fuel-intensive every time it starts. As for the tires, I don’t feel much, because the tires must be replaced in 4-6 years according to their own regulations. Even if they often turn the tires on the spot and have never changed the tires before and after, the tire pattern after 3 years is still in a safe state. As for the front wheels wear faster than the rear wheels, even if you don’t do this, the same is true. If you want to solve this problem, you can change the tires once a year. Under normal circumstances, how can a set of tires last for 4 years (because of some reason, the tires Except for eccentric wear, but it does not matter with the direction of the spot).

Since I have a car, I have cherished it very much. I usually put them in the garage, and when I need to go out, I push them behind to reduce the load on the engine; when the speed bump is over, I will call a few brothers to lift them to prevent the shock absorption deformation; when the car is parked, I I will rotate the tire half a circle every few hours to prevent the tire from being deformed during the same part of the tire; every few days, I will use a lift to lift the car to prevent uneven force on the suspension; the air-conditioning in the car I never open it, because I am afraid that the condenser and pipes inside will become moldy. I manually stir the oil several times a day. I am afraid that the engine oil sump oil seal will be damaged by standing for a long time. I use glue to seal the gaps in the car windows, and I am afraid that others will plug advertising cards. I live on the glass elevator; I remove the car’s wipers and save them in a cool place. I am afraid that the rubber strips will be aging due to prolonged exposure; I remove the battery every day for charging, and I am afraid that it will discharge itself for a long time and cause reversible vulcanization; I don’t do it every time I turn. Turn on the turn signal and get out of the car, gesturing for fear of burning the light bulb; every kilometer I drive, I also get off to measure the tire pressure, fearing that the tire pressure will be over or over and the tire life will be degraded; every five hundred meters I will get out of the car to pick the tire pattern The trapped stones are afraid of affecting the life of the tire; I remove the engine every night and clean it every day to prevent dust from entering and affecting the life of the engine. (The above source is from network integration) Regarding this kind of “damaged car” and other issues, you only need to grasp one principle: “China has 330 million motor vehicles. These car owners don’t know how much more stupid they will do. As long as what I do is not stupid and angry, it must be within the expectations of car designers and manufacturers.”
