The average operating temperature of a passenger car/light truck engine is up to 235ºF, and higher under heavy loads. Motorists are becoming more familiar with the technologies responsible for this increased heat, specifically turbochargers and direct fuel injection. Automakers are designing engines using these performance-enhancing technologies to keep pace with increasingly strict fuel economy and […]
The complexity of today’s automatic transmissions can baffle even seasoned technicians. Modern transmissions feature more gears, clutch packs and narrow oil passageways that require a steady supply of high-quality fluid. Without it, performance suffers and failure can ensue, leading to thousands of dollars in repairs.
To make matters worse, towing and hauling capacities continue to increase […]
So the last video is of my old truck i sold to the fellow below that won the 2015 Freeland Memorial Day Car Show burnout contest. It started out as a humble mail delivery truck and I racked up the miles to 315,000 before selling it. I ran AMSOIL in it for all the years […]

A vehicle’s engine generates enough heat to destroy itself, and it is up to the cooling system to keep the engine within a safe operating temperature range. Preventive maintenance, including fluid maintenance, is essential to extending radiator and engine life and keeping them in top working order.
The new line of premium AMSOIL Antifreeze/Coolants provides outstanding […]

The Debate Over Reduced ZDDP and Wear Protection
Do modern motor oils formulated with reduced zinc and phosphorus anti-wear additives provide adequate engine protection? It’s a question some industry insiders, auto enthusiasts and motorists have been asking for years. And as engine builders and classic-car owners continue to experience engine failures they attribute to reduced zinc […]
Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluids and Severe Gear® Provide Maximum Protection for Extreme Operating Conditions
Whether hauling heavy tools and equipment to a job site or towing a boat for a relaxing weekend on the lake, many vehicles are subjected to extreme operating conditions and hot temperatures in the summer, placing an increased level of stress on […]
Oil, whether synthetic or petroleum-based, consists of molecular chains of hydrogen and carbon atoms, referred to as hydrocarbons. Petroleum crude oil is a thick, highly flammable dark-brown or greenish liquid with high energy densities. Many contaminating elements exist in this complex mixture of hydrocarbons, including sulfur, nitrogen, oxygen and metal components such as nickel or vanadium. Petroleum […]
As vehicle mileage increases, engine performance suffers from gasoline-generated deposits that form on the fuel injectors, intake valves and combustion chamber. Additives are required to control deposit formation, but today’s fuels lack sufficient treatments of high-quality additives. That is why so many vehicles experience lost fuel economy, lost power and poor throttle response, failed emission […]
