Tip & How-To about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
Your engine will last a lot longer as far as the main engine components if you 1)change your engine oil at vehicle recommended mfg intervals.TIP: if you live in hot climates you should change your oil more often and at less miles .2500 to 3000 ml. every 3 months because the climate the hot temperatures break down oil viscosity at a higher rate thus needed more frequent oil changes for the best engine engine lasting performance.2) always use the recommended weight example (5/30w)TIP: Also for best results the recommended rating of the oil for example on the back of the oil bottle is a rating 2 or 3 letters in a circle .Older vehicles use a different rating than newer vehicles and some times they are not interchangeable this information should be available at your local parts store.3)TIP;: Always use the recommended (brand) oil filter.With the way cars are now especially ones with overhead cams and chains ,aftermarket filters might not supply the same pressure aspects of the original oil filter, So as far to have less or more pressure than that is needed to maintain these components correctly with the correct pressure.
Thanks hope this helps
