With an oil appetite of more than a liter for a couple of thousand kilometers, a normal driver thinks about piston repair, and the abnormal stops changing oil at all, limited to refilling it. Of course, in the most extreme case, the presence of oil in the crankcase is more important than its quality, but during operation it is actively changing under the influence of aggressive chemistry and wear products. Cleaning with a filter does not ensure full restoration of its quality: it changes as the very basis of the oil, which causes it to become more liquid, and it works or drops out in the form of ash and soot in the places of overheating the additives present in it.
Topping up with new servings of oil slightly restores the amount of additives and fractional composition, but this measure is not enough for long. Quickly enough, the volume of new components is simply lost in the volume of the sludge accumulated in the engine crankcase, and the base number does not recover at all to a normal level.

In this article we will talk about low profile tires, their main advantages and disadvantages. Should I switch to these tires, if there is a modified or ordinary car?
WHAT IT IS? If you ask a tuning enthusiast what distinguishes a “cool car” from a usual one, then low profile tires will be named among the first signs. Indeed, the wheels of the car with a large radius and a narrow strip of rubber look much more aggressive and more beautiful. But how does this affect the car itself, which should not only please the eye, but also go safely? As we know, the standard marking is: 235/45 R20. Continue reading
Is it possible to change the speedometer or “twist the mileage”? Upset buyers of used cars: there are many ways to twist the mileage, there are plenty of craftsmen and companies. But it’s possible to determine how twisted the car’s mileage is, although no one will give a 100% guarantee. EASY AND LAW The odometer of a modern car that records the number of kilometers traveled since the start of operation is an electronic device. Like any other, it can be hacked. The reason for the “twisting” can be not only the sale. In some models, the on-board computer requires a visit to a service station after a certain mileage. If there are no funds for the service station, it is easier for some to deceive the on-board computer by correcting the odometer data. Continue reading
