Your vehicle's lubrication is imperative for its maintenance, as it helps its components work smoothly and remain in top shape for years to come. If you're uncertain of what lubricants your vehicle needs, however, the following post can serve as a guide.

How to Lubricate Your Vehicle Properly

  1. The most important lube of all is the motor synthetic oil. It is in charge of coating, protecting, and lubricating the engine, which is why you need to keep up with its replacements.
  2. Your transmission system is the one that helps you change gears and go at different speeds. As you can guess, it needs transmission fluid to operate as desire.
  3. Next up, there's brake fluid, which is not only a lubricant for the braking system, but a hydraulic fluid, too, meaning it helps with the transference of power.
  4. When you're driving, you need to change directions. The power steering system is the one responsible for that. To keep it healthy, feed it with power steering fluid, which is also a hydraulic fluid.
  5. Certain components of your vehicle need a lubricant with a thicker consistency. This is where grease comes in to save the day with its protective powers.
  6. If you're driving a big vehicle, such as a truck, then you will need a stronger lube. Gear lube will guarantee that your vehicle remains powerful for longer.
  7. Let's say that you need lube that can seep into a tight space in your vehicle (for example, to loosen a bolt). A penetration lubricant will help you get the job done.
  8. Lastly, there are dry lubricants to consider. Like penetration lubricants, they're meant to fit into tight spaces. But, as the name states, they're dry for spots that don't allow moisture.
