Does My Car Need Synthetic Oil?

The answer is simple: if your owner’s manual says your vehicle requires full-synthetic oil, then you MUST use it. As for older engines that do not require full synthetic oil, we find that full synthetic oil has many advantages, which are listed below.

BENEFITS OF SYNTHETIC OIL:

  • Synthetic oil lubricates better.
  • It makes engines last longer.
  • Improves gas mileage.
  • It requires fewer oil changes.

A high number of people say you can go nearly twice as long between oil changes with synthetic. Compared to standard motor oil, synthetic oil takes longer to break down, can withstand higher temperatures, and can flow easier in cold temperatures.

The advantages of synthetic base oils are thanks to the extreme cleanliness and consistency of the molecular structure achieved in the processing. Conventional base oils are typically only lightly refined, with not all of the inherent impurities (waxes, sulfur, etc.) removed from the petroleum. Instead of being simply refined, the crude for synthetic oil is engineered to produce a uniform molecular structure that offers superior lubrication.

Give Your Car Some TLC This February!

February is the month of love… So what about giving your car some tender loving care? As you know, every relationship takes work, even the one you have with your car. Never underestimate how far a little tender loving care toward your vehicle can go. Regular, routine maintenance can help improve your gasoline mileage, reduce pollution, and catch minor problems before they become big headaches. Always remember to:

  • Replace dirty filters, such as air, fuel, and PCV. A poorly running engine is less efficient and burns more gasoline.
  • Check your transmission and have your fluids changed. Of all the fluids inside your vehicle, transmission fluid is one of the most important. Routine checks and fluid changes at prescribed intervals can prevent very costly repairs down the line.
  • Check your tire pressure and treads, Keeping your tires properly inflated has many benefits. Your tires will wear evenly, which prolongs their life and can improve your vehicle’s fuel economy. When correctly inflated, your tires can perform at their best which means better handling, dependable traction and a more comfortable ride for you. Your tires will last a lot longer if you give them the proper care! They’re pricey and you’ll appreciate having an extra couple years to hold off on buying new ones.

This valentine’s season show your car some love, and bring it along to Royal Motors. Remember that included with every vehicle we repair we offer a fluid check and top off, tire pressure check and correction, and a bulb check at NO EXTRA CHARGE.  Before you head over, make sure you check out our discounts and specials for the month of February: http://eepurl.com/bPwOxP

5 signs that your car may have electric problems

Having issues with your car is not fun, specially when it comes to your car not responding the way it should. The big questions that come to mind when we are experiencing car problems are: what kind of issue is my car experiencing? how can I solve this? how much is this going to cost me?

Electrical problems don’t always announce themselves in a way that is easy to understand.   The electrical system is compromised of several components including the battery, battery cables, alternator, starter, and computer system. Problems with any of these components can cause problems with the vehicle’s operation.   If you have electrical trouble you may lose your headlights or wipers, your navigation could fail or your car may not run right or even start. To help ensure you know what to look for, here are 5 of the most common signs that there is something going on with your car’s electrical system.

1. Your car won’t start, you turn your key and hear clicking, grinding, or no sound at all
2. Your vehicle runs well, but the headlights dim while you’re traveling at low speeds, or idling at a stop
3. Your car has visible damage or leakage from the battery
4. The interior or dashboard lights do not illuminate properly
5. The brake lights, radio or power windows don’t work

If you are having electrical issues with your car, it is very important to have the problem diagnosed and fixed as soon as possible, so that you don’t end up with a more expensive repair. At Royal Motors we can identify and repair electrical issues in your vehicle. Call us at 407-201-7950 today to schedule an appointment.

And remember, included with every vehicle we repair we offer a fluid check & top off, tire pressure check & correction, and a bulb check at no extra cost. ROYAL MOTORS IS YOUR DEALERSHIP ALTERNATIVE!

Changing Your Oil Matters!

Changing the oil in your car is one of the most important things that must be done to ensure adequate maintenance of your vehicle.

Oil is essential to prevent wear of internal engine parts. This helps the engine run smoothly and last longer, optimizing performance.Your vehicle’s oil has a certain percentage of maximum tolerance of impurities and moisture to function properly as a lubricant. The normal engine operation creates these impurities, it is for this reason why the oil should be changed every certain period of time / mileage (for moisture accumulation).

All of the moving parts in your car are made of various metals and move mechanically. Because of this, it is important to keep them lubed properly so that wear and tear is kept to a minimum, which is where proper oil is essential. As the oil moves through the engine while your car runs, it has a tendency to pick up particles of dirt and residue. Clean oil (without the residue) moves smoothly, while dirty oil has the capability of clogging up small passages.

This is why changing your vehicle’s oil on a regular basis is so important. If you don’t think you have the time or money to get your oil changed and you choose to wait, eventually the oil will get worse, becoming more like sludge and clog your engine. Engines are expensive to clean, and replacing a worn-out piston is not an auto repair bill you want to receive. Bottom line: It’s worth the time and minimal cost of maintenance!
