Keep the Wheels Turning: On Proper Lubrication

A car wouldn’t be able to go far without the use of lubricants. Without motor oil, the various moving parts in your car would overheat and your engine will break down. The proper application of lubricants can ensure that your automobile works in top condition. Here are a few tips on how to do just that.

  • Use High-Quality Lubricants. The best way to ensure that your car is lubricated properly is to use the best products available. High-quality lubricants like those from Shell are often pure and work in a variety of conditions. You don’t want oil that evaporates in high temperatures or coagulate in cold weather.
  • Pay Attention to When You Last Had a Change. Regular oil changes should be the norm. Lubricants can get overused and eventually lose their beneficial qualities. A good rule of thumb is to change your oil every 10,000 miles.
  • Don’t Overlook the Small Stuff. Your engine isn’t the only part that needs lubrication. The squeaky parts of your vehicle like the doors or the wheels need a bit of oil to make sure that they operate smoothly.

A properly lubricated car is a great thing. It can provide you with a pleasant ride and function for a long time. With less friction, your vehicle’s moving parts won’t have a lot of stress placed on them. Heed the above tips to ensure that your car is well cared for and performs as it should.
