Lubrication is the number one thing that all engines need.
Engine bearing clearance, is very important and can cause early failures if not correct. Engine bearings should operate with, the least amount of engine bearing clearance as possible. So, tighter oil clearances, produce less peak […]
Zinc additives in engine oils, have been recommended by most engine manufacturers for years. So, why do we have lower zinc and phosphorus levels, in modern engine oils. Consequently, the American Petroleum Institute (API), has […]
Suddenly, an engine oil pressure warning light or a low oil pressure reading, appears on your dash. At that point, the engine oil pressure warning, is the only thing you should be thinking about. Above […]
Your typical oil filter has to perform, a crucially important job. The oil filter removes, solid contaminants, such as dirt, carbon and metal particles from the engine; before they can damage, bearings and cylinder wall […]
Firstly, a poor maintenance routine, is the biggest cause, of engine lubrication problems. Secondly, extended oil change intervals, are partly responsible for low engine oil levels and subsequent, engine lubrication problems. Consequently, excessive engine oil […]
The first indication of trouble, may be a flickering oil light or a low engine oil pressure reading. Consequently, a loss of engine performance, excessive engine noise and even poor starting; can all be caused […]
Engine sludge, forms as engine oil oxidizes and breaks down; leaving behind deposits recognized as, engine sludge. Engine oils break down, during oxidation and combines with dirt, fuel, metallic particles, water, gases, and coolant. So, […]
