SYNTHETIC OIL – EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

 

Why should you pay more for synthetic oil? Is synthetic motor oil better than conventional motor oil? If you wonder why synthetic motor oil is so popular among motorists, you have come to the right place. Synthetic motor oil is made of artificial chemical compounds which include a base oil, a carrier oil, and powder additives. The carrier oil ensures the even distribution of additives to offer better engine protection and last longer than conventional oils.

Here are some of the many benefits of using a premium synthetic motor oil for your car instead of conventional motor oil.

Synthetic motor oils are extremely clean with a consistent molecular structure to offer superior lubrication to the engine of your vehicle. Conventional motor oils are only lightly refined and may include impurities such as sulfur and waxes to varying degrees. The crude for synthetic oil is refined and processed to achieve extreme cleanliness and resist oil breakdown and offer better engine protection over time. High-quality synthetic oils include superior base oils and state-of-the-art additives to protect your engine for long periods compared to conventional oils.

Synthetic oils can easily withstand higher temperatures without breaking down or oxidizing. While conventional oils have an upper limit of 250-300 degrees F, synthetic oils can handle up to 450 degrees F. or higher. In fact, some oils can handle up to 700 degrees F. That is why synthetic oils are ideal for all types of vehicles in hot climates and heavy-duty or turbo-charged engines. The oil also can flow freely at lower temperatures – pouring easily even at -40 or -50 degrees F where conventional oils become thickened. That way it helps reduce engine wear in your vehicle.

Synthetic motor oils experience less boil-off compared to conventional motor oils. A quality oil will lose only about 4% of its weight when the engine runs at 400 degrees for six hours. But a conventional motor oil will lose at least 30% of its weight under the same circumstances. The lower evaporation rate means the engine uses less synthetic oil than conventional motor oil to help you save money in the long run.

Synthetic oils cost more than conventional oils because they are more expensive to manufacture. Some people may question the economics of switching to the higher-priced synthetic lube. But the higher price is always justified by improved mileage, better engine protection, and reduced maintenance costs in the long run.

UNDERSTANDING CAR HEATING AND COOLING PROBLEMS

While the heating and the air conditioning systems in your car are connected, they are two different systems and function separately. Nonetheless, like every part or system in a vehicle, car owners need to take care of the heating and A/C systems. Regular maintenance is of utmost importance to keep both systems in good working order and extend the lifespan of your car. Importantly, scheduled maintenance negates the risk of nagging gremlins affecting your vehicle’s heating and A/C system.

Being vehicle heating and cooling systems experts, we understand and appreciate the value of taking care of these systems. As such, we use our comprehensive multi-point check procedures and processes to ensure every part or subsystem in the A/C or heating system functions effectively and efficiently. Whether your car A/C stopped working suddenly, or you face a problem that gradually gets worse, we will get to the bottom of the issue and solve it.

Common Issues With The A/C System

  • Low Refrigerant– This is one of the most common issues that a vehicle A/C system faces. A sign of low refrigerant levels is the car air conditioner making noise and not cooling. Depending on the refrigerant level, the A/C might blow cool or even warm air, but not cold. Facing such a situation during summer is not a pleasant experience. You need a coolant top-up. Depending on your vehicle’s make and model is either R-12 or R-134a.
  • Clogged Or Leaking Condenser– When the A/C does not have ample refrigerant coursing through the system as per the OEM design, you will not get any cooled air coming from the vents. Condenser leaks can reduce the effectiveness of the A/C. Additionally, crud build-up at the front of the condenser will restrict the flow of refrigerant. Consequently, the car air conditioner may make noise and not work.
  • Damaged Compressor– The A/C condenser is the device wherein heat exchange occurs, allowing the A/C system to dump heat outside. For the condenser to function efficiently, it `is placed in the front of the vehicle, which leaves it vulnerable to damage from getting hit by objects such as rocks. If a knock ruptures the condenser and it’s leaking refrigerant, it needs to be replaced immediately to negate further damage to the system.

Another common issue that are A/C systems face is a Broken Belt.

Common Reasons For The Heating System Not to Work

  • Low Coolant– Your car uses the heat drawn from the coolant engine to warm up the cabin. The coolant is drawn from the engine block, passes through the heater core. At the heater core, heat transfers from the coolant to the air that’s blown to the cabin. Low coolant levels tend to reduce the efficiency of heat evacuation from the engine. This reduces the amount of heat available at the heater core.
  • Air In The Coolant System– Having air traverse the coolant system reduces its efficiency. Water can take a lot more air from the engine block than air. As such, when air is trapped within the coolant lines, the cooling system is unable to evacuate enough to warm up the cabin. This is also dangerous to the engine due to the risk of overheating.
  • Malfunctioning Heater Core– The heater core is a mini radiator made of aluminum or brass tubing that allows coolant drawn from the engine to circulate. The heat in the heater core is blown by fans, helping to disperse heat into the cabin, keeping this space toasty warm. Unfortunately, the heater core is prone to a myriad of problems such as clogged tubing, fan-blown air not reaching the heater core, or cooler not moving efficiently within the heater core. It is paramount to have this critical part of the heating system regularly maintained.
  • Failed (Or Malfunctioning) Thermostat– When faced with a thermostat malfunction or failure, the heater may work intermittently or not work. In such cases, the best course of action is to replace the thermostat.
