The main liquid after fuel in the engine is oil. Oil theme was discussed very much and after all those discussions there is no precise answer which oil is best. Conventional or Synthetic: this dispute is eternal, like which transmission in best, or which fuel is best diesel or gasoline. However, the oil must be in the engine, and it must be changed at certain mileage, otherwise you will meet serious issues using your car. Without oil lifetime of your engine will be way too short…I bet less than a mile. Modern engines have safety systems, which blocks engine, start if any problems with lubrication system are found, while system check on start. Even if you have serious oil leak, or oil pump damaged electronic system will stop the engine even in the middle of the highway.
That`s why if you have a modern car – have no worries about your engine, it is protected by various systems. But what about drivers, who have more outdated motors, where the only electronic system is radio and horn. Those cars require the deeper involvement of driver, and at least minor perception of mechanics.What a surprise is for mechanic and owner when from oil pan pours out coolant! Ooops, somebody really screwed up, and this is not a minor problem anymore, that`s a serious mess. The only salvation is if the engine was not started, but in this case, you need to understand that you messed up before you try to have a ride.
You Know You Have A Problem When This Happens!
As a preliminary conclusion, this engine could be a perfect decoration for your garage, or garden, because to use it properly is impossible. Alternatively, you can spend some hundreds of bucks and try to restore it. However, be very careful when you open the hood, especially if you plan to put something, mount, or unscrew.
