A multimedia guide to car repair and maintenance of Skoda Octavia (1996 to date).
Skoda Octavia from 1996-a multimedia user guide/instruction on repair, maintenance and operation of the vehicle.
As with every product that we use, about your car, I would like to know at least the most basic. To have information about its technical parameters, how it arose, design, maintenance, use, and operational capabilities of convenient not only from a security standpoint drive and use all the features of the car, but, taking into account economic aspects of operation, the durability of the vehicle. Cars Skoda type Octavia are a favorite brainchild of designers and engineers of the firm "SKODA-AO automobile plant" VW (Volkswagen). As in all other large automotive corporations, VW uses proven constructively committed manufactured in large series of components, at the same time for most types of car its related brands. Unification allows to reduce the price of the items, and also to reduce the number of spare nodes and thereby improve the service.
Appearance (design) of the car body Octavia fully established stylists "SKODA-AO automobile plant". Constructive arrangement was also developed at the centre experienced production using computer systems CAD/ CAM VW and other companies. The body meets the high requirements of aesthetics, as well as the highest safety requirements, shocks and torsional rigidity. The bottom of the body developed in conjunction with the VW strategic concept and body Skoda Octavia even more optimized, especially in the spars and attachment points related to the chassis.
The mentioned decision of the body, chassis and engines in cars number Octavia was achieved highest structural level, high value car, environmental friendliness and high level of production and repair technologies and, most importantly, the overall quality level comparable with the European standard.
A number of parts of the car, of course, is made known specialized firms, suppliers, local and foreign. It must be emphasized that all data presented in subsequent chapters are of an informative nature only. I hope they will be useful to readers interested in getting acquainted with the structure and design of the Skoda Octavia. For maintenance and repair must only be used by service Skoda.
Description and main technical data
We must remember that all subsequent information given in the book, obtained in the process of formation of production, i.e. during 1996. The specified range of types and modifications, as bodies and engines, and gearboxes manufacturer will eventually change and expand.
Hire Skoda Octavia have a bearing body made of steel forgings. The engine is placed across the front of the body and drives the front wheels. This concept corresponding to global trends, allows to expand the range of bodies with minimal changes in production technology and spare parts.
In the process of formation, i.e. in the second half of 1996, was started manufacturing car with unified sedan / saloon in three models: LX, GLX and SLX. At this time the services were offered three engines: two petrol engines (1.6 to 55 kW and 1.8-92 kW) and one diesel (1,9 TDI 66 kW). All engines in the exhaust tract are the catalyst for exhaust gas. Gearbox - manual control; on vehicles equipped with engine 1.8-92 kW, it is possible to install automatic gearbox.
Review equipment uniform modifications are provided in the following sections of this Chapter. Main technical parameters are summarized in the table. So here we give only a brief approximate description of the car.
