Keeping your vehicle properly lubricated can have an impact on its lifespan and performance. Read through this post to learn more about how you can lubricate your vehicle effectively. 

How to Lubricate Your Vehicle Properly

A properly lubricated vehicle is one that is sure to run smoothly, perform strongly, and work perfectly for a longer period of time. That's why it is imperative that you know what kind of lubrication your vehicle needs and how to maintain it effectively. To help you out in this department, in this post you'll find more information about your vehicle's lubrication needs.

The Engine Oil

Needless to say, your vehicle wouldn't be anything without its engine. Well, the engine wouldn't be anything without its synthetic oil. This means that if you want your vehicle to continue running, you need to do a good job at changing its oil on a regular basis. This is because the engine oil is in charge of coating the moving components inside the engine, making their performance smoother, and ensuring they aren't damaged by the constant friction that goes on between them.

Keep your engine healthy and strong with the use of AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil. Call Maints Tech Sales and Service at (843) 224-1454 to place an order for the most effective synthetic oil in Charleston, SC.

The Transmission Fluid

Continuing with key vehicle components that wouldn't be able to do much without their fluid, the transmission system. As you may be aware, the transmission system helps you control and deliver the power in your vehicle, meaning it helps you change gears and speeds as you go. As you can imagine, this is a tough and important job, without which, you wouldn't have much use for your vehicle. That's why it is essential that you provide changes for the transmission fluid as well, since it helps the system remain in perfect working condition.

The Brake Fluid

Having faulty brakes can be incredibly dangerous, which is why, as General Automotive Servicenter states, you should have your braking system check if it's making loud noises, taking longer to stop, or leaking brake fluid. Said brake fluid is crucial to the system's protection and its proper functioning, as it is a hydraulic fluid responsible for helping it stop or slow down as you need it.

The Power Steering Fluid

If you can't steer while you drive, you won't be able to get very far at all. That's why the power steering system exists, so you can change you direction depending on your needs. But, like the others systems in this post, this one also needs a special fluid (the power steering fluid), to remain in mint condition, and to transfer power to help you steer.

The Grease

The oils and fluids that work with the systems mentioned above do wonders for them. However, other moving parts in your vehicle (such as the wheel bearings), need a lubricant with a thicker consistency and a stickier quality than the one oil has. For those special components, grease is the way to go to keep them protected.

Be sure to stop by AMSOIL's online store to purchase top performing synthetic oils, greases, or other essentials for your vehicle's lubrication. You can also call Maints Tech Sales and Service in Charleston, SC at (843) 224-1454 to place an order.

The Gear Lube

As you can probably imagine, heavy machinery and heavy duty vehicles (for example, big trucks), also require lubrication and protection for their moving parts. However, a simple oil won't do. A gear lube is what they need, since it is more resistant to extreme conditions, which powerful vehicles are constantly under.

The Penetration Lubricant

Not every lubricant you will use in your vehicle will be intended for protection purposes or to smooth out processes. In fact, you will need to use lubricants for those cases in which you need to get a component "unstuck" (like a bolt). Luckily, penetration lubricants have a thin consistency that allows them to get into every nook and cranny.

The Dry Lubricant

Certain components in your vehicle may need fixing, but you shouldn't use penetration lubricants in them (like the door lock), since they work with a lot of moisture. For those cases, you will have to turn to dry lubricants (such as graphite) which, as their name suggests, are completely dry and work great for those areas with special needs.
