During the lifetime of most of those reading this article we’ve gone from the only sources for cars parts was what was available locally – the dealership, car parts store
One would assume that for one of the simplest of all DIY car service, and oil change, that I’ll you’d have to do is walk up to the counter at your local parts store and ask for a filter for your 2014 Ford Focus
The oil in your car's engine plays a vital role to ensure that all the moving parts are lubricated and there is no friction being caused that will damage the engine or make it overheat. You need to check your oil level on a regular basis and top it up when required. Not everybody will know what type of oil to buy but you should always check your car´s manual beforehand. The car reg check on Morepartz will also help.
Another good reason for ensuring that the oils and lubricants are the correct levels is to ensure your car enjoys a long life with uninterrupted service.
However, it's important that the type and grade of oil that you use is the right one as this may have an impact on your vehicle's condition and also on the economy figures. You also need to appreciate that oils will over a short time degrade and become less efficient and dirtier. Some engines may need their engine oil changing after just 3,000 miles though many of us are able to just top up their engine oil when required but there will need to be a complete oil change at some point - usually when you have the car or van serviced.
While you are checking the engine oil, you should also check coolant levels which will help ensure the car does not overheat and this is easy to check and top up. You may also need to use antifreeze when topping up your coolant levels to ensure that the liquid in the system does not freeze in winter and antifreeze will ensure this does not happen by working to incredibly low temperatures, sometimes as low as -40âˆž C. Again, your cars manual will stipulate the type and grade of antifreeze required and it's a good idea to use this.
It´s also a good idea to check and top-up the screen wash which is necessary all year round; in winter, a good quality screen wash will keep your windscreen clear of ice and other dirt from the road while in summer you can clean it from flies and debris.
However, there are other oils and fluids that will need to be checked including steering fluid and transmission fluid. These are easy to check and to top up though you may not be needing these oils as often.
Most motorbikes will be needing suspension oil for both the front and rear suspension. The oil you use should meet the bike manufacturer´s requirements.
Along with buying engine oil, you may also need oil filters. There may also be a need for fresh oil should yours become damaged and also have new breathe pipes. Some may also need oil seals fitting as well.
If you are looking for car engine oils, fluids and lubricants then you should find what you require at the Morepartz site and it may be that you can use universal oils and lubricants which tend to be cheaper.
