Oil is the lifeblood of an engine, but you might be surprised at just how accurate this statement is. The engine oil protects the most expensive components on your car to repair or replace. It lubricates, clean the engine and absorbs heat, allowing the internal parts to work effectively without overheating. Over time, engine oil breaks down, reducing its ability to lubricate the engine, transfer heat and protect the internal engine components. Long overdue service schedules often result in engine oil breaking down and turning into engine sludge. It is severe and almost irreversible damage that occurs when engine oil degrades.
At KarPro Tyre & Auto, we recommend changing engine oil every 6 months or 10,000km to keep all engine components lubricated and the internal moving parts free of contaminants, thus avoiding engine sludge and prolonging engine viability. However, if you drive an older car or drive in harsh conditions, it is recommended that you have it serviced every 3 months or 5,000km.
Synthetic oils contain chemically compounded lubricants that provide:
Designed to trap foreign particles suspended in the oil and prevent them from getting to the engine bearings and other parts.
The Automatic Transmission Fluid is responsible for lubricating mechanical parts, maintaining fluid pressure, cooling, preventing oxidation, conditioning the gasket, and preventing rust.
A hydraulic fluid that is used to transmit pressure through the brake lines in a brake system and also protects the hydraulic components like brake calipers and Anti-Lock brake pumps.
Removes harmful airborne particles so they are not introduced to an engine’s combustion process.
Used to maintain the engine’s temperature throughout operation.
