Regular Oil vs Synthetic Oil -EricTheCarGuy

Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Lately I've been seeing a lot of posts over at the forum talking about switching to synthetic oil with less than ideal results. Instead of typing out the same answer over and over I thought I would make this short video to help explain my experiences with synthetic oil. I'm not saying synthetic oil is bad, in fact it has it's place but my opinion is that place is not in your 15 year old Toyota or Chevy. The reasons as explained in the video are that synthetic has different flow characteristics and can actually cause your engine to leak oil and run noisy. It's perfectly OK to run conventional oil of the correct viscosity and change it on a regular basis. You don't need to spend the extra money on synthetic oil if your owners manual does not call for it. I look forward to your comments on this.

Re: Regular Oil vs Synthetic Oil -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ I knew the original video would spark discussion and apparently it's caused quite a stir over at iATN. I also felt that some of what I said in the last video needed clarification. For those reasons I've made this Re: video. I'm not going to claim to be an expert on oil, I'm just speaking from personal experience. I still don't think I'm done with this topic and I invite any 'experts' who wish to express their opinions on this topic to join me in the next video(s).

How Oil Pressure Works - EricTheCarGuy http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Here is the second offering from last weeks set of videos. The most important thing to note with this is that oil pressure is not created by the pump but rather the resistance to the outlet flow of that pump and part of that resistance is the clearances between the bearings and the other parts inside the engine.

Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this video in response to it. There are many different configurations of throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts store. One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle (DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle. If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my website. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/solving-automotive-idle-problems The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com BowlingBalOutl's channel http://www.youtube.com/user/bowlingballout Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

Synthetic Oil Basics
Technically, Synthetic Oil originates as traditional mineral based motor oil. What separates the two is the level of advanced engineering, refinement and criteria that goes into this modern engine lubricant. In short, there is no other routine maintenance contributor that can provide better protection, performance and longevity than today's Synthetic Motor Oils Extreme Weather Protection: Under early morning sub-zero winter starts or summertime high temperature stop-and-go traffic, Synthetic Oils are engineered to deliver vital engine protection and reliable performance year-round. Cold Weather Pour Test: In this laboratory test, a Synthetic-Oil and a Synthetic-Mineral-Blend have been frozen overnight at minus 40 below. This pour test illustrates conclusively the cold-start readiness of Synthetic Oil. Even after six minutes, the blended oil can't keep up. And, those white globs you see are wax - a standard component of conventional mineral-based motor oil. Clearly, Synthetic oil is the best way to ensure that your vital engine components are adequately lubricated during cold cranking. New & Old With very few exceptions, Synthetic Oil is a wise choice for all new and older vehicles. Modern engine components are built to higher tolerances and levels of precision and the superior lubricating properties of Synthetic Oil deliver the finest day-to-day protection against wear. Older-engines, performance-engines and power-plants-under-heavy-load can all benefit from the advanced lubrication and low-abrasion attributes of Synthetic Oil. In all situations, engine seals and gaskets are protected and remain pliable and effective. Compliance: All major auto manufacturers support and specify the use of API certified lubricants and Synthetic Motor Oil meets and even exceeds all standards and criteria. The advanced additives developed for Synthetic Oil help contribute to cleaner and more efficient operation during the entire span of the recommended oil change interval. Factory Warranties remain intact, un-compromised and supported. In any case, the best warranty is the one you never have to use and proper routine maintenance is an effective way to achieve that long-term goal. Always check your manual and adhere to the manufacturer's recommended grade. Compatibility: Today's Synthetic Motor Oil is fully compatible with traditional mineral based oil. This means that you can safely upgrade to synthetic oil... or in a pinch, switch back or partially top-up with conventional mineral oil. Longevity: When you factor-in a decrease in engine wear and fuel consumption, upgrading to Synthetic Oil can add up to long term savings and better performance throughout the life of your vehicle. Ultimately, the goal is for fewer repairs, so that you and your car can spend more of your valuable time on the road and not in the shop. Since they were first commercially introduced in the mid seventies, Synthetic Motor Oils have constantly evolved to serve the needs of motorist and the cars they drive. Today, there is no better choice than Synthetic Motor Oils for maintaining engine reliability, performance and protection. Canadian Tire has the selection, service and know-how to help you with all your engine lubricant and maintenance needs.

Best Paint Touch-up Tricks: Mercedes G55
This is one of the worst key scratches I have ever seen. This car needed to be repainted, but I thought I would give it a shot...nothing to lose. It covered 3 separate door panels with varying depth levels. 98% of the 9 feet was through the clear coat, paint, base, and into the substrate. EXTREMELY bad scratch. In this episode, I discuss multiple ways to approach this type of paint damage. I want to be crystal clear: THIS CAR NEEDED TO BE REPAINTED FOR 90-100% satisfaction. My techniques here, with the understanding of the customer, had the best-case final results of 70% to 75% "better or touched-up" appearance. See how it turned out. Thx for watching! -L





Engine Running NO OIL - NO SUMP - Seized Soild on Camera
Messing with a Mitsubishi Lancer There are loads of videos where people run an engine at full rev with no oil in it, and the engine seizes. Running it a medium rev, I wanted to see how long it would run with no lubrication, and I was surprised. However if the car was driving and the engine was under load, it would be dead in minutes!

Busting Oil Change Myth
How often do you change the motor oil in your vehicle? Can you tell by looking at the the used oil if it's really past it's useful service life? The dated 3,000-mile oil change is likely too frequent.

How To Remove Wheel Locks Without a Key - EricTheCarGuy
How To Remove Wheel Locks Without a Key - EricTheCarGuy As I state in the video DONOT use this information for illegal purposes, it is intended to HELP you if you happen to loose your wheel lock key. As with most things that I do with cars this didn't go exactly as planned, in fact there is a significant amount of time between me getting the socket hammered onto the wheel lock and when it actually broke loose, I took a break to work on other things. I also said in the video that they make a special socket for removing wheel locks that makes this a lot easier, do a search for this and you will probably find a set of them. If you can't find one of these sockets then this might be an option for you to try. The best thing is to try not to loose the lock key in the first place but I realize that this may not always be possible so I made this video for you. Stop by and see me at EricTheCarGuy.com anytime and post video or text responses at will. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.
