AMSOIL INC. OFFERS A FAST/QUICK WAY TO GET REAL DURABILITY FROM YOUR VEHICLE ENGINE & DRIVETRAIN.

Written by Jim Smart on November 27, 2017

Do you every wonder how much life you have left in your engine and driveline?

Your ride doesn’t have to be a lost cause at 150,000 miles. We’re going to show you how to get 250,000-300,000 miles by doing nothing more than using the right lubricants and changing them out on a regular basis. One thing street rods do a lot is sit. Sitting for extended periods of time takes a toll on moving parts, seals, and gaskets. You want a lubricant that will stay in place during those times when your street rod or classic muscle car is going to sit. You also want staying power for the next time you start it up.

What Lubrication Does

We’re going to focus on the two most important aspects of engine oil. It keeps moving parts from touching each other and it carries heat and corrosive contaminants away from moving parts. Engine oil has the most intimate contact with an engine’s moving parts, including the hottest parts like exhaust valvestems and piston rings. It has to have qualities that allow it to stand up to the toughest conditions imaginable.

When lubricating oil breaks down under high heat conditions it stops protecting moving parts, which is what leads to engine failure. Not only does engine oil keep moving parts from touching, it also coats these parts, preventing destructive corrosion. Additives in the oil help fight corrosion and resulting deterioration of the oil. Detergents and dispersants contribute even further to prevent sludge and carbon buildup.

Engines are lubricated via pressure, splash, and fog. Oil contacts moving parts under pressure at the crankshaft and camshaft journals and bearings. It is also supplied under pressure at the lifters and rocker arm shafts. The layer of oil between moving parts is known as an oil film. The oil film under pressure acts as a liquid bearing on which moving parts ride without touching each other. Moving parts contact each other whenever the oil film is compromised. The oil film is compromised when the engine is shut down and it has time to sit. Oil drains off moving parts, which will have the opportunity to contact. When you hit the starter, moving parts have direct contact briefly until oil under pressure reaches critical parts.

Splash and fog lubrication takes time to get slung around before it coats cylinder walls, pistons, and pins. And forget lubrication at piston rings. Piston rings have direction contact with cylinder walls, which have some lubrication, but not enough. Because both cylinder wall and rings are typically made of iron, wear tends to be uniform in both. And as rings and walls wear, they shed microscopic amounts of metal into the oil.

Why Change Oil?

Clean oil greatly enhances engine life by protecting moving parts. We have seen proof of this again and again in more than four decades of tinkering with automobiles. Changing oil, regardless of the type of oil you use, rids your engine of contaminants that can cause harm to an engine if left unattended. When engines sit, rust develops on castings and moving parts inside. This is why you want a lubricant that stays on all parts. Always change the oil filter any time you change oil.

Contaminants can have a corrosive effect on moving parts. Microscopic metal particles from normal wear and tear can take a toll on moving parts when they sit in the oil wedge and contact moving parts. Iron particles will score soft bearing surfaces. In fact, did you know aluminum bearing surfaces are made that way to absorb metal particles and other contaminants? Hard iron particles sink into the soft bearing surfaces, which protects the crank and cam journals from scoring.

Synthetic vs. Conventional

We spoke with Dan Peterson, senior vice president, dealer sales and marketing at AMSOIL INC. about oil choice. “It depends on application and what you want from your motor oil. There are a lot of areas where it makes sense to use synthetic. And there are applications where you’re better off with conventional,” Dan comments. “For anyone interested in greater performance, protection, and longevity, synthetics are going to do a better job.”

Dan goes on to say, “Breaking that down further, when engines or vehicles encounter temperature extremes—extreme heat or intense cold—AMSOIL INC. synthetics are going to provide much better performance in these extreme environments. From the high-temperature side of it, the synthetic base oils and advanced additives work together to provide better protection against wear, oxidation, and deposits.

“From the low temperature side of it,” Dan adds, “you just don’t get the flow of lubricant when you need it. The really bad wear comes when you start your engine and lubricants don’t get there quickly enough to prevent contact. Synthetic lubricants flow better at low temperatures and they tend to stay, which means you have lubrication on moving parts upon startup.” Another option to consider is AMSOIL INC. synthetic lubricants in your driveline, be it an automatic transmission or manual shift. Ditto for your differential, which can live happily on AMSOIL INC. synthetics.

AMSOIL INTRODUCES NEW DCT TRANSMISSION FLUID

DCT

 

Dual-clutch transmissions (DCTs) are automatic transmissions based on the architecture of manual transmissions. The complex system essentially consists of two manual transmissions in the same housing. As one clutch is engaged, the other readies the next appropriate gear, minimizing the interruption of power and improving performance and efficiency. A specially formulated fluid is required to maintain the high-performance output of these advanced transmissions. AMSOIL 100% Synthetic DCT Fluid is designed to protect high-tech dual-clutch transmissions during the most intense, high-heat operating conditions. It provides the fast, smooth shifts drivers expect.

Excellent Friction Durability
Dual-clutch transmissions are capable of seamless, split-second shifts but can suffer from shudder or lurching at slow speeds. AMSOIL 100% Synthetic DCT Fluid is engineered to prevent shudder in sophisticated dual-clutch transmissions. Its frictional properties provide superior protection and consistently produce fast, smooth shifts. Synthetic DCT Fluid’s exceptional durability ensures stability in stop-and-go traffic. It promotes stable synchronizer engagements, extending the life of the transmission.

Outstanding Wear Protection
AMSOIL Synthetic DCT Fluid resists the extreme heat in today’s high-temperature DCTs to provide complete protection for gears, bearings and other vital parts. Its high film strength and anti-wear/extreme-pressure additives are specifically designed to protect the metal surfaces of DCTs.

Resists Heat and Oxidation
Maintaining proper viscosity at extreme temperatures is crucial to protect the components of a dual-clutch transmission. AMSOIL Synthetic DCT Fluid provides complete protection during the intense conditions native to high-performance sports sedans and supercars.

Superior Shear Stability
Transmission fluid can shear at the molecular level as it passes between gear teeth. This leads to reduced viscosity and decreased wear protection. AMSOIL Synthetic DCT Fluid resists shear and provides consistent viscosity, even in the extreme stress of high-horsepower, high-torque applications.

  • Outstanding wear protection
  • Excellent performance in extreme heat and cold
  • Designed to prevent shudder

AMSOIL DIESEL OILS ARE UNMATCHED IN PERFORMANCE

AMSOIL, the leader in Synthetic Lubrication, doesn’t just talk about their products but they have the Statistics to prove their claim how AMSOIL products provide better protection, performance and save the customer money. Over-the-road Diesel Truck tests show using AMSOIL Diesel Oils give a 6.54% improvement in fuel mileage thus saving the owner/operators much on diesel fuel costs. Truck owners who have moved from using Chevron Delo 400, Shell Rotella-T, Cummings Premium Blue to AMSOIL Diesel Oils realize that their hard working Diesel Tractors have much lower operating temperatures, less break down of the oil, less sludge, varnish and gum deposits and their drain intervals are extended at least three times longer than using the others products. Also with over-the-road trucking, a truck could be in Florida today with high heat temperatures and in cold country the next day. They have found they DO NOT have to leave engines running all night to keep the engine lubricated. They can shut down for the night and the next morning have instant oil pressure because of the Low Pour Point of AMSOIL products. In tests done with a Cummings 400-D Big Cam, temperatures went from 290 in the transmission down to 210 using AMSOIL products. Less friction, less drag, less heat, less wear equates to more torque thus more horsepower. Engines DO NOT HAVE TO WORK as hard using AMSOIL Products.  And with Oil Analysis, drain intervals could be extended greater than the three-time interval or petroleum.

WINTER SEASON MEANS SNOWMOBILES IN ACTION

I have had questions concerning the use of AMSOIL lubricants for snowmobiles and specifically Ski Doo Snowmobiles of which I have owned TWO while living in Duluth, Minn from 1969 – 1973. 

NO you don’t use Transmission Oils in a Ski Doo Transmission Case.  The transmission used in snowmobiles is a CVT which is dry. It uses a belt and two clutches to take care of the shifting. Most snowmobiles use a chain case (chain and gears) to transmit power from the CVT to the driveshaft. This chain case is lubricated by its own oil. In the case of the Skidoos, AMSOIL’s TCC (Synthetic Chain Case Lubricant) can be used to lube the chain case or the SVO (75W – 140 Severe Gear Lubricant) which is a closer match to the Skidoo chain case fluid but is WAY overkill for that application.  

Further information on proper engine oils to use for Snowmobiles would be AMSOIL’s AIT (Interceptor Synthetic 2-cycle Oil) in the SkiDoo 2 strokes such as the 600 and 800 E-TEC.  In 4 stroke sleds and Can Am ATVs, AMSOIL recommends the AFF (SAW 0w-40 Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Motor Oil).

For more information about these and other AMSOIL products go to www.amsoil.com or www.the1stSyntheticoil.com. Should you desire to purchase AMSOIL products you can all 1-800-777-7094 and give the operator ZO 9792 as your reference #.  Questions send email to william.desmond@knology.net

AMSOIL Holds Line On Price Increases

 AMSOIL, the leader in Synthetic Lubrication, is always looking at ways to give the customer and dealer network the BEST prices available depending on their suppliers.   With the extended drain intervals of AMSOIL’s 25,000 or one year service life and their oil filters of 25,000 miles or one year service life OR 15,000 miles or one year service life the cost effectiveness of the #1 Synthetic Lubrication manufacturer in America does safe people time and money.
 
While the price of crude oil has dropped recently, the costs of lubricant base stocks, additives and other raw materials continue to rise. Most lubricant manufacturers are set to implement their fourth or fifth price increase since early February, with these increases expected to slowly work their way into the retail marketplace over the next several months. While AMSOIL has also been affected with increasing costs of raw materials, the company is holding the line on implementing another price increase. AMSOIL has limited its price increases to just three since February, while also limiting the percentage increases to approximately half of the percentage increases implemented by competing manufacturers.
 
AMSOIL synthetic lubricants are the best and most cost-effective choice on the market, saving customers money through extended drain intervals, reduced wear and maintenance and increased fuel efficiency. Customers save even more by registering as Preferred Customers, while the OE Synthetic Motor Oil line provides customers with the enhanced protection and performance properties of a synthetic at a competitive, lower initial price.
 
For further information go to www.The1stSyntheticoil.com or www.amsoil.com and look at the particular products of interest.  Should you desire to purchase AMSOIL products you can call 1-800-777-7094 and give the operator Reference # 9792.
