Consistent oil change is one of the easiest ways to extend the life expectancy of your engine. This simple action also helps reduce any potential friction in you engine while keeping it clean.
Engine oil guards your car from multiple things such as wear and heating. The oil will act as a protection shield and avoid metal from rubbing against each other. Besides, it will keep your engine temperature down during the combustion process. Furthermore, the oil will also cleanse your motor, thus, reducing the accumulation of mud.
We will also help you determine which oil type is best for you, according to the car's manufacturer. Some trucks are still designed for the conventional oil. It is very crude but nevertheless refined. On the other hand, synthetic oil does the job however, it has been manufactured to withstand much more extreme environments. It is steady in very cold climate as long as maintaining its fluidity during the hot months of summer.
As a general rule of thumb, oil change should be scheduled every 5000 kilometers. It can also be done more frequently, depending on your car's operational situations.

Consequently, its new properties allow it to withstand higher temperatures. Since your truck is mostly exposed to heavy and thrust loads, greasing helps to guard the gears and combat friction. Moreover, it protects the metal contact points against deterioration. Lastly, greasing the chassis of your truck repels water, thus, preventing oxidation.
Popular Tire offers one of the best greasing services in the area. Our service is quick and efficient. Additionally, we only use top grade products.
