Top 10 Wear Problems

These wear problems will kill your car or truck and shorten it's life guaranteed!

Here's the age old problem.

How do we STOP this wear?

How can you make your vehicles and equipment last twice as long or even longer?

Your vehicle is the second biggest investment you'll make in your lifetime. For half of America it's the biggest investment they'll ever make. Cars are now $14,000-$15,000 for sub compacts and $20,000-$40,000 for mid-size and full size. Trucks and SUV's can cost $15,000-$25,000 for compacts and $22,000-$50,000 for full size. People are keeping their vehicles longer than they ever have before. These owners are looking for ways to make these expensive vehicles last longer and run newer for longer. Keeping your vehicle clean on the inside and outside is the secret to protecting and preserving it. Inside being the interior of the engine, transmission, drive train, cooling system, and fuel system. Outside being the cars exterior paint and trim and the cars interior.

Keeping your vehicle clean on the inside and outside is the secret to protecting and preserving it!


What are the top 10 vehicle assassins?


Engine Oil breakdown and Oxidation- Breakdown and oxidation of engine oil produces harmful sludge and can reduce oil flow, lubrication ability, and engine cooling. Motor oils tend to 'boil off' in high temperatures. Losing up to 25 percent of their original weight in high temperature service, vaporized oils grow thick and  heavy. They circulate poorly, reduce fuel efficiency and contribute to excessive  emissions and engine wear. Of course, oil consumption skyrockets as oil boils  off. It accelerates engine wear and plugs oil passages vital for proper engine lubrication. As these abrasive elements accumulate in the engine they destroy bearings and promote seal leakage. Oil breakdown is the number 1 engine killer.

Engine Sludge, Varnish, and Carbon Buildup- Sludge, varnish, and carbon buildup in engines can accelerate wear by inhibiting oil flow and blocking vital oil passages that provide lubrication to engine components. Sludge buildup reduces oil flow and engine cooling, this promotes excessive wear on internal engine rings and bearings and leads to eventual engine failure. Sludge buildup can cause leakage in seals and gaskets as it blocks fresh oil from wetting the seals and gaskets and keeping them swollen. Dry seals and gaskets will eventually shrink, crack, and leak. Sludge buildup is the number one killer of seals and gaskets in an external combustion engine.

Inadequate Oil Filtration- Any full flow filter must allow oil to pass through it quickly to keep the engine from starving for oil. Advances in auto technology and more compact  engine designs place increasing demands on these filters; to keep from creating a circulation bottleneck they filter out only the coarser particles, and feature relief valves that open when the engines demand for lubrication can't be  ignored. But the smallest grit that passes through- road dust, manufacturing scarf, and engine metal-flake in the 5-20 micron range - accounts for up to 60% of all engine wear. These microscopic particles closely match the precision clearances between critical engine components; they can enter the spaces between bearings,  rings, and other components, to damage metal surfaces, altering tolerances, fatiguing components and generating additional debris.

Inadequate Air Filtration- Dirt is your engine's worst  enemy! The only thing stopping abrasive airborne dirt and grit from  entering and seriously damaging your engine is your air filter. But in order to do the job right, and air filter must not only effectively stop harmful dirt, it must do so without obstructing the vital flow of air that allows proper combustion and maximum engine performance.

Transmission Sludge- Transmissions operate under widely adverse and severe conditions and expose the transmission fluid to wide swings in temperature. As (ATF) automatic transmission fluid ages and overheats, it loses viscosity and forms sludge, which reduces circulation and transmission cooling. Abrasive metals formed by aged transmission fluid will ruin seals and cause damage to internal components. The transmission will start to shift erratically, vibrate and chatter, and eventually fail.

Drive Line and Differential Abrasion- Differential ring and pinion gears can suffer damage and wear due to a lack of lubrication corrosion. Stress cracks can develop that weaken the gear components and further damage. Excessive wear in gear boxes lead to noise and indicate accessive metallic wear is occurring. Excessive wear in differentials, manual transmissions, and transfer cases can cause fluid leakage and gear failure.

Dirty Fuel and Intake System- Gummy fuel buildup accumulates in your fuel tank, fuel lines, fuel pump, and on your fuel injectors or carburetor. These residues also buildup on the intake valves.These deposits eventually restrict engine tolerances and starve your engine of power and performance. Oxidation and carbon residue buildup reduce the efficiency of fuel pumps and fuel filters and can result in expensive fuel injector failure. Heavy carbon buildup on fuel injectors reduces their optimal efficiency. This leads to poor spray pattern, reduced injector cooling and flow, and inefficient combustion. These buildups lead to poor fuel economy and shorten component life.

Poorly Lubricated Wheel Bearings and Steering Joints- Wheel bearings, ball joints and steering knuckles can suffer scoring, fretting, and pitting due to lack of lubrication and corrosion. Wear to these vital vehicle components can result in loose steering, inability to align the wheels, and poor suspension performance, front end vibration, and noise. Eventually this wear will result in catastrophic part failure and expensive repairs.

Cooling System Corrosion- Minerals found in tap water combine with coolants and form scale called phosphate scale. This scale coats the interior of radiators, radiator hoses, and engine coolant passages causing reduced heat transfer and cooling efficiency. Eventually your vehicle can overheat and run hotter than it's supposed to. This can burn and thicken your motor oil causing excessive engine wear and premature engine wearout.

Environmental Damage to Your Interior and Exterior- Sun, dirt, mud, salt, and road chemicals can destroy your beautiful paint job. Your exterior will pit, fade, and crack. These environmental conditions can also damage your alloy wheels, chrome surfaces, and plastic and rubber body components. This reduces the value of a vehicle more than any other reason. Dirt, grime and sun will damage and prematurely wear out the interior of your vehicle. Eventually your interior surfaces and seats will oxidize, dry, crack, and deteriorate.
