After many conversations with and extensive feedback from our customers, we found that most of them are looking for advice on lubricants. So we’ve come up with “How-To”, a brand-new FAQ section providing practical advice related to lubricants:
- How to check brake fluid?
- How to change brake fluid?
- How to check engine oil?
- How to check transmission fluid level?
- How to change antifreeze in a car?
- How to top up your oil?
Please note that these are recommendations only. You must follow the steps carefully and remember that these operations are your responsibility. Be sure that you have the necessary equipment and skills. If not, we recommend that these operations be carried out by a qualified mechanic. Last, we recommend that you recycle your used oil by taking it to an oil change center or a waste recycling facility. The oil can be cleaned and fully reused as heating oil. One gallon of used oil provides one gallon of heating oil. With higher-intensity processing, it can be re-refined back into lubricants at about a 60% yield — 1 gallon of used motor oil provides about 2.5 quarts of lube base oil. Any type of oil can be reused: car oil, motorbike oil, truck oil, tractor oil, boat oil and others. Do not mix brake fluid, coolant and engine oil. Each fluid has to be recycled separately. Even small quantities of coolant or brake fluid in used engine oil can disrupt or halt the recycling process.
