The best way to overcome mud or a deep puddle to go around it. But if this is not possible? Then, having collected will in a fist and with maximum concentrating the attention, the roads will have to overcome.
Travel deep puddles and areas with dirt
The main requirement for overcoming deep puddles, however, as other types of off-road is the need to preserve uniformity of motion and stability of the engine speed. Not worth it to fly into a puddle with overclocking – it is fraught with the ingress of water into the intake manifold of the engine and may end hydraulic punch, and no one knows what lies under the water: a deep hole or decent size stone.
Moving to the second, and even better in first gear, move in a puddle without releasing the gas pedal, not the engine stalled, but also do not press down on it sharply, to prevent slippage of the drive wheels. Avoid "figure driving" on the puddle to keep the wheel straight.
If the puddle was much deeper than anticipated and the engine stalled in the middle of the puddle due to the ingress of water into the exhaust pipe, do not waste time and energy on trying to run it. The only solution in this situation would be pulling the car onto dry ground, followed by the removal of water from the exhaust system. It's enough to put the car on the front of a natural hill. If the terrain is flat, and will jacking the front end and wait until the exhaust pipe does not drain out all the water.
driving on the track
Very often it happens that in the midst of impassable dirt has more or less groomed track. She needs to use it, safely letting your car on it wheels. It is very important to feel the real dimensions of the car and get the wheels exactly on track.
The gas pedal should be used in the same way as with the passage of deep puddles, not too to press, but not release. Transfer – the first or the second. And no need to turn the wheel from left to right, the wheel itself will find the way to the track.
To leave the gauge is better on the turn. If the rotation in the near proximity is not observed, and leave the gauge is necessary to add a little gas, briefly turn the steering wheel slightly in the direction opposite to the direction of the exit, and then confidently turned the wheel in the desired direction, to get out of the rut.
If the car is still "sat"
If, despite all efforts, the car still stuck in the mud is to not panic. Believe me – it happens pretty often, and not only with beginners but also with the automotive Asa.
Well, if in the car except the driver have companions or passengers – in this case the car after a short (or long) "Hey, uhnem!" will be on a dry place. Otherwise, you need to get out of the traps of the road alone.
There is a sense to try to leave the mud in reverse, turning the wheel and moving the wheel on the track. You can try to get out, rocking the car by alternately shifting from first gear to rear and back. If it failed and the drive wheels helplessly floundering in the mud, you need to stop trying to travel through the power of the engine. Otherwise you can burn the clutch or "kill" the automatic gearbox, and the car finally and irrevocably bury the wheels into the ground.
If the machine has not sat on the bottom, you need to dig up the shovel the drive wheels, and then dig ahead in the direction of track length of about one meter. Dug a rut, it is desirable to strengthen small stones, sand or small twigs. In particularly difficult cases necessary to raise the car Jack to put under the slipping wheel of the same stone or a branch. Personally, I once helped out of a mud cabin rubber mats placed under Sawasdee the wheel, because no stones, no sticks were not around.
If the car confidently sat on the belly have to be jacking it to put under the drive wheels planks, logs – everything that will not allow the wheels to sink into the mud. To the Jack when not immersed in the mud, should be under the socket of the Jack to dig and to strengthen it by any means at hand.
Getting out of the mud and arriving to your destination, you need to clean and wash the underbody of the vehicle, because the clogged dirt on the brake pads pretty soon can fail, and the bottom of the body will collapse because of corrosion.
Good you care! No nail, no wand!
