Motor oil, engine oil, or engine lubricant is any of various substances (comprising oil enhanced with additives, for example, in many cases, extreme pressure additives) that are used for lubrication of internal combustion engines. The main function of motor oil is to reduce wear on moving parts; it also cleans, inhibits corrosion, improves sealing, and cools the engine by carrying heat away from moving parts.1
Motor oils are derived from petroleum-based and non-petroleum-synthesized chemical compounds. Motor oils today are mainly blended by using base oils composed of hydrocarbons, polyalphaolefins (PAO), and polyinternal olefins2 (PIO), thus organic compounds consisting entirely of carbon and hydrogen. The base oils of some high-performance motor oils contain up to 20% by weight of esters.3
In many cases, the maintenance of vehicles made by a real expert in the field of electronics or auto mechanics is essential. Many people, however, will perform the repair at his own expense, using commonly available knowledge in this area. In this case, the preferred embodiment may be used to purchase a car parts. Admittedly, car parts, which have already been used can be a bit tired, but they tend to be several times cheaper than new equipment. No wonder that the automotive aftermarket is booming, and the exchange between the owners of auto parts may be getting more efficient, for example, thanks to the Internet.
The reasons for the rare visits to our car
As you know, most of the people going to the car service decides to take this step due to the sudden emergency situation and still persisting problems with the car. Of course, there are also compulsory inspection of cars, but apart from a cursory check the performance of our car hardly anyone decides on a thorough diagnosis of the car. This is primarily associated with costs that have to be incurred in connection with the sometimes very costly repairs and replacements of car parts. Often the repair turns out to be also unprofitable, because it exceeds the value of the car. In such cases, the best solution would be to sell the car.
