How to Lubricate Your Vehicle Properly

1. The Motor Oil

First of all, your vehicle requires a lubricant to protect its most important part: the engine. When your vehicle is running, the components inside the engine move and brush up against each other. This damages them, increases the heat in the engine, and shortens its life expectancy. The synthetic motor oil will protect and lubricate the engine, ensuring it will remain working smoothly for many years to come. Just be sure to provide the synthetic oil changes when necessary.

2. The Transmission Fluid

Your vehicle has a transmission system that helps you change gears and control the speed at which you drive around (be it that your vehicle is manual or automatic). However, time and use can also wear the system’s components down. The transmission fluid provides the lubrication those components require to perform as expected and remain in perfect working condition.

3. The Brake Fluid

Up until now, we’ve been discussing lubricants that are meant to protect and smooth out your vehicle’s components and their processes. However, the brake fluid is a little bit different. Not only is it a lubricant, but it’s also hydraulic fluid that helps transfer power from one part of the system to the next. Needless to say, your braking system is crucial for your safety, so be sure to replace the fluid as you deem necessary.

4. The Power Steering Fluid

Can you imagine what would happen if you weren’t able to steer your vehicle in the right direction? Disaster would ensue! Luckily, there’s a power steering system that helps you control your vehicle. But, as you can probably guess by now, its components can wear down after a while. Enter, the power steering fluid, which is also meant to coat, protect, and lubricate the components and keep them functional.

5. The Grease

Next up, there’s grease. This is a lubricant that takes care of those more heavy-duty components (like the wheel bearings) in your vehicle that require a heavy-duty substance. The grease has a thicker consistency, which means it’s perfect to provide the protection those heavy-duty components needs. This will guarantee they stay in great shape.

6. The Gear Lube

Depending on the vehicle you have is the lubricant you will need for it. For example, if you have a big truck that you drive around through harsh terrains, you will need gear lube to protect its moving parts. This is ideal for more powerful vehicles, since it can resist the extreme conditions they’re under much better. The gear lube will keep your vehicle even more powerful for longer.

7. The Penetration Lubricant

Not all of the lubricant your vehicle needs is meant to deter the components’ wear and tear processes, some are meant to make surfaces more slippery (for instance, if you need assistance loosening a screw). Penetration lubricants have a thinner consistency, which helps them reach those extremely tight spaces with ease.

8. The Dry Lubricant

Finally, there’s dry lubricant to consider. This is very similar to penetration lubricant, but it’s used to reach tight spots in areas that don’t allow moisture (for example, the door lock). Dry lubricants are often made out of graphite and can be very handy to reach those impenetrable, dry spaces.
