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.

Replacing Studs the 'Easy Way' -EricTheCarGuy
I've been asked to make this video for some time and I was just waiting for a vehicle to come in that needed new studs. Well, not only did I get one in that needed a new stud, but it needed 2 studs. This doubles our fun for this video. The principal was the same for both studs. Some of you might not agree with this method and that's OK. But I can say that I've done it this way for many years and have not had one come back yet for an issue. However, if you feel you don't want to employ this method, you can remove the axle nut, slide hammer the hub out of the bearing, replace the stud on the bench, press the hub back into the bearing, and hope your bearing doesn't go bad as a result of separating it. Either way works. Here's some links to some tools you might find useful that were mentioned in the video.

The Flex PE-14 Rotary Polisher teamed with the Evolve 4R mini backing plate has the polishing power to remove the sanding scratches and restore the crystal clear appearance to the headlight.

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.
