To keep your vehicle working well, you should provide the lubricants its components need. To help you out, this post by Fantastic Synthetics in Helenville, WI will go over the lubes they should get.

How to Lubricate Your Vehicle Properly

1. Motor Oil

First of all, let's talk about the most important lubricant your vehicle needs: motor oil. In case you didn't know, its importance stems from the fact that it is in charge of lubricating and protecting your engine, meaning that without it, your vehicle could be rendered useless in no-time, since the engine's parts would wear down fast. As you can imagine, your motor oil needs to be changed with regularity to guarantee that your engine will continue performing smoothly and effectively, so don't neglect its replacements so you can have a functioning and safe vehicle for longer.

Purchase AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil, the most effective synthetic oil in Helenville, WI to keep your engine in top shape for a lot longer.

2. Transmission Fluid

Every vehicle needs a transmission system to help it change gears and control the speed at which it rides (no matter if it is an automatic or a manual vehicle). For the transmission system to work properly and to remain in top condition for years to come, there needs to be transmission fluid, as the moving of its parts can wear them down after some time and use. Check your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure you're keeping up with its replacements.

3. Brake Fluid

Needless to say, being able to slow down your vehicle or to bring it to a complete stop at a moment's notice is essential to keep you safe when you're driving. This is why you need brake fluid, since aside from lubricating the braking system's components, it is a hydraulic fluid that transfers the power that slows down the vehicle. If, as General Automotive Servicenter mentions, you notice something odd (like screeching, or leaking), change the fluid and get the system checked to avoid mishaps.

4. Power Steering Fluid

When you're driving, you steer the wheel to drive in the direction you want to go in (lest you want to end up crashing with whatever's directly in front of you). To make that happen, your vehicle has a power steering system. But, just like the other systems mentioned here, it requires proper lubrication with power steering fluid, as it is prone to wearing down. However, like the braking system, the power steering fluid also serves as a way to transfer power.

5. Grease

While regular oil is fine to lubricate a few of the components in your vehicle, there are some other parts that require more heavy-duty substances. Enter, grease. Grease is a lubricant that's thicker and stickier, which makes it perfect to help certain moving parts in your vehicle to function correctly. One of these parts is the vehicle's wheel bearings.

6. Gear Lube

Depending on the type of vehicle you drive, as well as the use you give it, you may need gear lube to keep its components properly lubricated. For example, if you drive around in a big truck for work, you will need gear lube to keep its moving parts in top shape for longer. What makes gear lube ideal for those more powerful vehicles, is that it can endure extreme conditions a lot better.

7. Penetration Lubricant

There will come a time when you will need to loosen up a piece such as a screw or a bolt (whether it's in your home, your vehicle, or any other place). To get that stuck part out of its comfort zone, you need a substance with a thinner consistency that can get into every nook and cranny to make them slippery and easier to remove (hence the name, penetration lubricant).

8. Dry Lubricant

Last but not least, it's likely you'll want to have some dry lubricant handy to keep your vehicle in perfect working condition. As its name states, it is dry, which makes it different from penetration lubricant. It's most commonly made from graphite, making it the best candidate to reach those tight spaces that shouldn't have any moisture in them. An example of this would be a door lock.

If your vehicle requires an oil change, use AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil, the best synthetic oil in Helenville, WI. Call Fantastic Synthetics at (262) 443-7975, or visit AMSOIL's online shop to place an order.
