TURBOCHARGERS RUN HOT HOT HOT

Turbochargers run on exhaust gases that often exceed 1,000ºF, which can quickly break down conventional oils and lead to deposit formation on the bearing. AMSOIL synthetic motor oils resist extreme heat and deposit formation for excellent turbo protection. Make sure your customers that own turbocharged engines understand the importance of using a high-quality synthetic oil to get the most out of their vehicles.

This is so important because auto manufacturers will be making vehicles smaller with turbo’s to help improve fuel economy. AMSOIL is the ONLY Catagory V Lubricant that will restand the high temps caused by a turbo engine. So don’t delay, “ONLY BUY THE BEST AND FORGET THE REST”

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 CONTINUES AS LEADER OF SYNTHETIC LUBS WITH REFORMULATED OILS

 New regulations on fuel economy and emissions have pushed the automotive industry to develop smaller, more efficient engines. The Prominence of direct injection (GDI) and turbochargers employed to meet rising corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards in placing new burdens on motor oil. Low Speed pre-ignition (LSPI) and increased engine temperatures are two of the more serious challenges to arise from the use of GDI and turbos.

Two new gasoline engine oil specifications have been developed to address these issues.

  • dexos1* Gen 2 (General Motors (GM)* – expected to be released late August 2017

  • API SP/ILSAC GF-6 expected to be released Fall 2019

After months of vigorous testing, we’ve (AMSOIL) produced new formulations that FAR SURPASS the latest standards and add another level of performance and protection to an already solid foundation.

  • Here are additional facts about the new formulated products. The OE oils can have a service life from 5,000 to 10,000 miles per year. The XL oils service life has increased to 12,000 miles or one year and  64% more protection again breakdown with the TBN increasing from 9 to 10. All three oils protect what has become known as a NEW engine problem and that is LSPI (Low Speed Pre-Ignition.  You can read more about LSPI at: http://www.amsoil.com/lander/lspi-update/

Another NEW AMSOIL Motor Oil recently added to the Inventory should make Ford Owners content with the addtion of the 5W – 50 Signature Series 100% Motor Oil..

SAE 5W-50 Signature Series 100% Synthetic Motor Oil

AMR-20W-50 Motor Oil

AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil delivers extraordinary lubrication in all types of automotive gasoline engines. By combining industry-premier synthetic technology with AMSOIL premium additives, Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil exceeds the higher performance demands of modern engines.

AMR
Product Code: AMRQT-EA
 
 
 
 
 AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world’s first API-qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL, the First in Synthetics®, to do the best job protecting your engine.

Protects Your Engine
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil provides outstanding anti-wear protection. It develops a strong fluid film that keeps metal surfaces separated while its robust anti-wear additives further reduce wear in metal-to-metal contact regions for maximum engine life. In the Sequence IIIG test, which is normally run for 100 hours, AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil delivered outstanding wear protection for the camshaft and lifters, even after doubling the test interval to 200 hours. For details, see the Double-Length Sequence IIIG Engine Test Technical Study (G3320).

Maximizes Fuel Economy
Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil is designed to maximize energy efficiency for optimum fuel economy. Unlike conventional oils, its uniform molecular structure helps it flow more freely and reduce friction between metal surfaces. Anti-friction additives are included to further improve energy efficiency.

Extends Drain Intervals
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil can extend drain intervals far beyond those recommended for conventional oils. Its unique synthetic formulation and long-drain additive system are inherently stable to resist oxidation and neutralize acids over longer periods. Signature Series is designed to deliver outstanding engine protection, cleanliness and performance over extended drain intervals. It reduces vehicle maintenance and waste oil.

Keeps Pistons Clean
Excess piston deposits can lead to pre-ignition and engine knocking, which results in lost power, reduced fuel economy and, in severe cases, engine damage. Signature Series’ premium additives and naturally high resistance to extreme heat help keep pistons clean for maximum engine performance. After a double-length, 200-hour Sequence IIIG engine test, Signature Series demonstrated outstanding cleanliness properties and shattered the requirements of a 100-hour test.

Sequence IIIG

Excels in Extreme Temperatures
Signature Series resists thermal (heat) breakdown better than conventional and synthetic motor oils. It is heavily fortified with detergent and dispersant additives to help prevent sludge deposits and keep engines clean. Unlike conventional oils, Signature Series contains no wax, staying fluid in sub-zero temperatures for easier starting, improved oil flow and reduced wear.

Reduces Oil Consumption and Emissions
Volatility (burn-off) occurs when oil gets hot, causing high oil consumption and emissions. Signature Series resists volatility better than other oils, helping reduce oil consumption and emissions.

APPLICATIONS
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil is excellent for use in all types of gasoline-fueled vehicles. It is recommended for all domestic and foreign vehicles requiring any of the listed performance specifications:

5W-50 (AMR): API SN, SM…; Ford WSS-M2C931-C (Mustang)

COMPATIBILITY
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil is compatible with other conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil’s life expectancy and reduce its performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed.

Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils.

SERVICE LIFE

  • Normal Service – Up to 25,000 miles, 700 hours of operation or one year, whichever comes first, in personal vehicles not operating under Severe Service.
  • Severe Service – Up to 15,000 miles, 700 hours of operation or one year, whichever comes first.
