All vehicle owners are familiar with their regular oil change, but here are 6 things that you might not know about engine oil: 1. It lubricates engine parts to prevent metal to metal contact and cleans up dirty deposits created during the combustion process. 2. Engine oils are rated in two ways: cold viscosity and hot viscosity, which indicates how the oil will respond to cold start ups. 3. Synthetic oils are distilled and rebuilt for better performance while mineral oils are essentially the same as when they are pulled from the ground. 4. Synthetic oils are more than just oil - they are scientifically modified to provide anti-wear, anti-oxidant, and anti-corrosion properties. 5. Added titanium in oils can actually reduce friction and engine wear. 6. Added magnetic particles in oil can also be beneficial because the magnetic particles cling to the engine to reduce wear upon start-up. CARTHROTTLE.COM 6 Things You Might Not Know About Engine Oil

If your brakes feel soft or spongy, you may need a brake bleed.

A good rule of thumb is to have this performed every 6 months or so.
