Why I no longer put the crankcase to my car, and I do not advise you.


Today in our country to protect the engine crankcase for motorists, almost mainstream. As a rule, when the car leaves the conveyor, the Carter goes without protection. Drivers simply buy it separately and install on their cars in the hope of obtaining a number of advantages.

For this reason, the task of engineers to construct the car in such a way that at the moment of such a collision the engine went to the «floor».

When installing metal protection of the crankcase, the engineering base of the engine, developed in production, is disturbed, which later may lead to negative phenomena. Protection from plastic will simply crack, also there is no one to drive anyone when driving around rough terrain.

In addition, when installing the crankcase protection decreases the car clearance. It all depends on its design features, on average, the lumen between the road and the car decreases by two or three centimeters. Sit on the «belly» in winter with such protection can be in two bills.

Most metal protection do not have due qualities. Corrosion is quickly formed on them, which later goes further along the bottom and body body.
