Regular Maintenance Can Help You Protect Your Vehicle Investment
After the 55 and Over Luncheon at church this month there was not a dry eye in the house. After a prayer and the meal a local charitable organization explained their efforts to connect single mothers with reliable used cars. The presenter explained the vetting process that helps find the best candidates for the used cars that have been first given to the group and then repaired by local mechanics. Even more impressive than the gifted cars themselves, however, might be the after care program. Monthly meetings that include daycare and family dinners focus on educating the new vehicle owners about the best ways to make sure that they know how to care for their new car after the six month warranty expires.
The six week sessions focus on all kinds of car maintenance tips, including checking for levels on synthetic lubricants, as well as checking the air pressure on tires.
Finding the Most Reliable Synthetic Lubricants Can Help Lengthen the Life of Your Car
Whether you have the chance to own a used car for the very first time or you have recently bought another new car, it is important to follow through on the manufacturer’s maintenance directions. Both industrial lubricants and the high end specialty lubricants are known for their special purposes. Forgetting to change the oil and check the tire pressure in your car can help you keep your vehicle for many miles. Consider these facts and figures about the maintenance products that keep all kinds of machines running in this country:
- 2.5 million metric tonnes of metalworking fluids were sold across the globe in 2016, according to Future Market Insights’ report.
- Cost reductions from recycling metalworking fluids can be significant. In fact, research shows that they can have a potential 8% volume reduction when compared to a non-recycling system.
- Cooling, lubrication, chip removal, and corrosion control are the four main functions of metalworking fluids.
- While pure synthetics contain no oil whatsoever, semi-synthetic lubricants contain less than 30% oil content in concentrate.
- 89% of lubrication professionals consider an oil’s viscosity index when selecting a lubricant, according to a recent survey.
- Typically, a substantial flow of fluids is used in the metal removal process. Most often between four and 20 liters per minute, which is an indicator that metalworking lubricants, coolants, and fluids play a vital role in the machining process.
Whether you need heavy duty lubricants for a semi truck or you are looking for a standard oil change for the new family car, regular maintenance is always important.
