What does your car need?

If gasoline is food/fuel for your car, then your engine’s motor oil is what blood is to our bodies. It circulates, protects, and cools the engine much like blood circulates through our bodies. But, unlike the blood in our bodies, engine oil that has deteriorated from use or over time needs to be changed out for new motor oil. Motor oil loses its viscosity after use and over time, and its performance, lubrication, and protective qualities decline. An oil change from Autobahn with new engine oil works to cool, lubricate, and protect your engine’s vital moving parts.

Vehicles today require full synthetics. One of the main reasons is the small passages for the variable cam timing passages. The reason to use a full synthetic vs. a blend or conventional oil is because synthetics tend to not sludge up or coke up the small passages that control your variable cam timing. So why does it still happen? It begins every time we start our engine and condensation forms, when we take long trips 20mins or more the condensation is removed, but those weekend errand trips don’t give the engine the time to remove this condensation. The next issue is dirt and other contaminants. When the engine is running especially cold, fuel vapors and carbon deposits get past the piston rings and get into the oil. So what is the oil to do? Well engine oils have additives such as dispersants to help. The dispersants help suspend these contaminants to be filtered out by oil filter and removed at next oil change. But these additive breakdown and cannot help when these intervals are exceeded and the sludge begins.

Who is that working on your car?
