Keep Your Engine Running Smoothly By Getting the Right Oil Product

Your vehicle’s motor oil is one of the essential components to keep your car running smoothly. It lubricates the parts of your car’s engine to allow it to perform at its optimum capacity.

That’s why selecting the right motor oil for your auto is important. The right choice of oil will help your car’s engine run smoothly, thus extending its life. On the other hand, making the wrong choice can damage your car’s engine.

Choosing the right motor oil is easy. You need to consider the following before making your purchase.

  1. Car manufacturer and series

Check your vehicle owner’s manual to know the recommended type of motor oil for your car.

  1. Viscosity

The viscosity of the oil dictates how well it will perform in different types of temperatures. The first number you’ll see on the label of a motor oil product indicates how well it performs in cold temperatures. The lower the number, the smoother the oil flow will be when it’s cold outside. The “W” on the label stands for winter. The second number indicates how well the oil will flow when your car’s engine is running. The lower the number, the better the oil flow will be in your vehicle. Remember that oil with high viscosity is better at performing in high temperatures. You can also check the motor oil cap of your auto to know the right type of motor oil for your car.

  1. Non-synthetic vs synthetic oil

Non-synthetic or mineral oil works well with most types of vehicles. However, it needs to be changed more often than synthetic oil. It has a standard heat tolerance and performs well under normal conditions. Non-synthetic oil is a bit more expensive than mineral oil and better suited for high-tech vehicle engines with high temperatures.

There are special motor oil products for vehicles that have a mileage of 60,000 and above. High-mileage oil contains special additives to keep high-mileage vehicles running in their best condition.


What to Do If Your Car No Longer Serves Its Purpose to You

If no amount or type of motor oil can bring back the power and efficiency of your car’s engine, that’s a clear sign that your automobile has crossed the finish line of its usefulness to you. What to do now?

Your best option here is to simply let go of your clunker by giving it a fitting retirement. You can do that by handing it over to us at Veteran Car Donations. Such a gift will help us in furthering our mission of improving the lives of the neglected and disadvantaged veterans in our country. They are our former service members who are suffering from homelessness, disabilities, chronic unemployment, and illnesses, including mental health disorders.

We’ll sell your donated vehicle through an auction and use the proceeds to support the vital programs and services being provided by our charity partners to their veteran beneficiaries. These IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations provide deserving veterans and their families with free quality health care, financial aid, housing assistance, employment opportunities, family support, educational scholarships, psychotherapy services, and many other benefits.

Your vehicle donation will also be a stress reliever for you since you’ll get to easily dispose of a clunker that’s giving you lots of headaches at no cost to you. That’s right! We’ll provide you with our free professional towing service wherever you are in the country.

Moreover, your gift will entitle you to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.

Best of all, you’ll get to experience the priceless satisfaction of enabling our nation’s heroes to live the decent and satisfying life they deserve.
