The engine is the heart of your car, so we want to share some tips that will help you take care of engine and prolong its life.
1. Preventive Maintenance
Maintaining your car is key to avoiding breakdowns and attending to small damages before they worsen and affect other systems, this is one of the simplest and most effective practices to take care of your engine. Follow the recommendations in your user manual on when to do it.
2. Start your vehicle when the dash indicators turn off
Commonly, when entering the key to start your car, different indicators light up on the dash. As this happens, oil begins to circulate through the engine, the spark plugs begin to heat up, and all systems prepare to start. It is important that before starting the vehicle, you wait for the indicators on the dashboard to go off, as it is a sign that your car is ready. Doing this will prevent a rough start that damages your vehicle.
3. Waters with fluids!
We know the importance of constantly checking the levels of fluids, such as antifreeze, brake fluid and motor oil, as they are essential for the operation of your car. But do you know how the products you choose affect the life of your engine? If you want your car to live longer, use Mobil Super™ All-In-One Protection lubricant, a fully synthetic engine oil formulated with Heat Activated Anti-Wear™ molecules. So, the more your engine heats up, the harder Mobil Super™ protects and delivers improved fuel economy.
4. Change filters
Your engine runs on various filters (oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, and many others) that protect it from millions of harmful particles. It is important that you change the filters regularly, as directed by your owner's manual.
5. Avoid sudden changes
If your vehicle has a manual transmission, avoid making sudden gear changes to prevent unnecessary wear on the gears and transmission.
