Do you know about the inevitable damages to your car?

Every driver has his own definition of poor conditions: cold and hot weather, driving on ice, driving over water, etc. all might be challenges to you. For the car that you love, and for the engine and engine oil, poor conditions might mean different things. You need to understand your car. Today, Dr. Mobil is going to talk about poor conditions from the engine's perspective.
Just started up 
This is undoubtedly a bad condition. In low temperature, engine oil has poor fluidity when the engine is first started and it cannot provide the best lubrication for the engine. The engine has greater operating resistance and fuel consumption is also higher. Fortunately, the impact of low temperature is only short term. The temperature will gradually increase as the car runs normally and the condition will improve.

What can you do?
Drive your car with care before it reaches the normal operating temperature. Engine oil with higher fluidity is recommended for cold areas.

Hot summer 
Note: If high temperature leads to poor heat dissipation in the vehicle, wear and tear of the engine will increase. Needless to say, engine oils of higher quality perform better in harsh conditions. 
In fact, the impact of temperature alone will not usually lead to poor heat dissipation. When the temperature of the coolant increases, it is usually due to high temperature in the environment, a stuck cooling system, blocked radiator etc. A combination of all these factors leads to heat dissipation. When the temperature of the coolant is too high, the engine cannot cool down in time and this will increase engine oil deterioration and engine wear and tear. This is an issue that you have to pay attention to.

What can you do?
Choose a smoother road to help the engine cool down. Switching off air conditioning can reduce the burden on small cars. 

Violent driving 
As the stress in life increases and the pace accelerates, you might start to drive violently consciously or unconsciously. Will this affect your car maintenance? In fact, as long as you do not drive on normal roads as if you were on the racing tracks and push the speed limits, an appropriate amount of sporty driving might not be bad for the vehicle. Gear-changing at high speed from time to time can help to reduce carbon deposition in the engine.

What can you do? 

You just need to pay the extra fuel and tyre costs resulting from violent driving...

Being idle 
Is there a mistake? Being motionless is also a bad condition? Make no mistake, being idle is not good for heat dissipation in the car, and it also promotes carbon deposition. It is not good for engine maintenance. This is also a "hidden injury", which we may easily overlook. When you leave the car idle, the engine continues to run while the mileage remains the same. As a result, this effect is not taken into account in the servicing cycle. Leaving an engine idle for one hour is actually equivalent to driving it for more than 30 km!

What can you do? 
Congestion in the city is harmful to the car and a waste of time. Time your trip properly and try to prevent driving through heavy traffic. Otherwise, you can only slightly reduce your maintenance cycle! 

Dr. Mobil's Tips: 
Mobil 1 Gold 0W-40 is a fully synthetic engine oil that yields better performance in low temperature. It can also provide better protection for your car in harsh conditions.
