Give Your Engine a Boost With a Synthetic Oil Change

How Does Engine Damage Occur? There are many ways in which engine damage and engine wear can occur in your vehicle. However, the most common reason is cause by friction. If you were to take away all of the body parts off your vehicle and then cut your engine in half, you would see many small and large metal parts which are intricately wedged around each other. While it might look like a mechanic mess, it is actually a finely tuned and precision based design to get the most power from your engine without blowing out its size. Now, while they are dormant while your engine isn’t running, the moment that your turn your ignition key, these parts are thrust into action. This action could involve sliding up against another part or even pumping liquid in and out of another part. If these parts were made of plastic, then there wouldn’t be too much damage caused. Of course, you would also be sitting in a car which wasn’t going to move. However, they aren’t; these parts are all made of metal. And, as you can imagine, when metal is made to slide up grind against other metal parts it starts to heat up. This heat is caused by something known as friction. When friction occurs inside your engine, each part begins to scrape away at the other parts slowly. This could be small scrapes or even large chunks of metal taken out of each part. It is this friction and these actions which are one of the most common causes for your mechanic to tell you that you have engine wear and need parts replaced.
