Thanks to the experience gained throughout our working lives asexperts in valuation, expert opinion and advice on repairs of damaged vehicles http://clautoandtow.com now we can give you some tips so you can avoid and know the main causes surrounding the fire in a vehicle.
Obviously a clear cause of fire is external, by condition of any heat source nearby (another fire, vandalism, accident, etc) sometimes unlikely, but equally difficult to avoid. You can always choose to get along with everyone and to park nearby, which also do so with others.
Also the external cause, it can be internal, how many cigarette butts and other things that are no butts, incandescent, have caused outbreaks of fire in seats, upholstery or carpets (that surround the cabin). To avoid this it is as simple as not smoking.
One of the most likely causes, especially in old (and not so old) cars, and lack of maintenance are the losses of fuel or oils (fáeasily flammable), which accumulation and / or direct contact with mechanical components withstand high temperatures, such as exhaust manifolds, which are often “maliciously” located in the lower vertical sleeves and take many oil and fuel, reaching temperatures above 800 ° C. Remember that in the motor is easier than most of the components exceed 100 ° C, so any detached from plastic, cardboard, dry leaves or the like component may also ignite. Only 10min glimpse of a mechanic can avoid many “setbacks”.
The most common causes today are due to defects in electrical installations or overload them, usually after a careless handling of some “friend understood” in placing an electronic accessory. I still remember that car that caught fire after sitting someone rear seat (under the same had been installing a power amplifier) cutting the cables of “+” and shorting the body mass acting “-“.
Nor can we forget that fires in vehicles, electrical reasons, can be caused by simple manipulation of a workshop (unprepared) to sever damages or desubique an original vehicle wiring by a body repair. The same can happen with a single headlamp improperly installed. Quality does matter.
Less likely would be self breakdown of some electronic element, as they tend to be properly protected with a fuse. Anyway, let not attend the workshop if you notice any malfunction, avoid irremediable something.
We cannot fail to mention, now that summer arrives, the objects left inside the cabin, elements that may be sensitive to sunlight and / or multiplying its effects, prescription glasses, mirrors, toys (how many things we burned with a magnifying glass the sun), aerosols, lighters, etc … Note that a carrier bare and hours more solar incidence can reach temperatures around 50 ° C. You have to be sorted and protect the interior with a Parasol, even gift.
Other preventable cause and can force a fire is circular or park in areas with high grass or scrub and dry even worse. It would also be fair to say that we must be especially careful driving on neglected areas where a plastic bag or similar can hook the car. By low our vehicles and externally thereto are always found the exhaust, now also in most modern cars is also the catalyst, both with fluctuating temperatures between 300 and 500 ° C. So be very careful Dry Cleaning and want to stop in “the field, the field”. Not the least of the temperature can reach brake discs, which is similar to the above.
We hope not to be alarmed too much and have helped themselves to take better care of your car.
