4 things you didn't know about engine oil.

Auto parts in the vehicles are not built to last forever. By applying the right knowledge to maintain your car parts — especially for the engine — you can ensure that the parts last for a long time.

The engine is the “heart” of the vehicle and can be maintained
with regular oil changes to ensure optimal engine performance in the long-run. Regular oil change is perhaps the single most important thing that you can do to keep your vehicle’s engine running longer. Every oil change that involves 1) changing the oil filter, 2) draining used engine oil and 3) replacing it with fresh, new oil offers a myriad of benefits.

  1. Lubrication.

The primary job of engine oil. Fresh and clean engine oil customised to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation enables the
engine’s internal parts to operate more smoothly, allowing the engine to reach optimal power, efficiency, as well as maximum performance and protection.

  1. Cleaning

High quality engine oils contain a high concentration of detergent and antioxidant additives that keep the engine’s metal surfaces clean, and prevent the formation of carbon deposits dispensed
into the oil filter. This process keeps the engine clean and prevents deposit material that accumulates from normal use. The detergent additives in the engine oils additionally neutralize the harmful effect of corrosive acids formed by engine combustion, especially when high sulfur gasoline or diesel is used in the engines.

  1. Cooling

Engine oil circulation helps to remove heat that generated in the engine.  Without engine oil’s cooling capability, the engine will be susceptible to frequent overheating.  A consistently hot-running engine needs to be taken seriously because it can cause a lot of damage to the engine in the long run.

  1. Protection

Engines contain many moving parts which may rub against each other,creating friction. This friction can damage engine parts and cause them to wear more quickly. A premium engine oil like Trisonic™ UltiMach Gold 5W-40 would provide maximum wear protection to the engine’s moving parts by preventing them from coming in contact with each other. Choosing the right engine oil can make the difference between years of smooth running and catastrophic failure.

Regular maintenance helps to extend vehicle life. It is better than a massive repair at the workshops. Frequent change of engine oil will only take up to one hour of your time, at a nominal cost. Neglecting
the changing of engine oil causes deterioration of your
engine, resultingin malfunctioning parts and repairs.

We recommend finding a suitable engine oil manufacturer whose service schedule best matches your vehicle’s operating conditions.

Other recommendations for optimal performance include:
Check your tire inflation pressure regularly, at least once a month.

Rotate your tires at the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended service interval or every 6 months.

Change the engine air filter annually or when visibly restricted.

Inspect Brake System every 12 months/20,000 km
