Reconditioning an engine is like giving your car a new lease on life. But to truly maximise the benefits of your newly reconditioned engine, it’s crucial to ensure proper maintenance. At ARA Engine Reconditioning, we not only bring your engine back to its prime, but we also equip you with the necessary knowledge for proper care. Here are some top tips for maintaining your engine after reconditioning.
1. Regular Oil Changes
One of the simplest yet most effective ways to maintain your reconditioned engine is through regular oil changes. Clean engine oil lubricates the moving parts, reduces friction and heat, and helps keep the engine clean. It’s essential to replace your oil and filter at the intervals recommended by your vehicle manufacturer or our team of experts at ARA Engine Reconditioning.
2. Use High-Quality Fuel
Using high-quality fuel can significantly prolong the life of your reconditioned engine. Higher-grade fuels usually contain additives that help prevent carbon deposits and keep your engine running smoothly.
3. Regular Service and Inspection
Regularly servicing your vehicle helps detect potential issues early before they escalate into more serious (and expensive) problems. At ARA Engine Reconditioning, we recommend bringing your vehicle in for inspection and maintenance checks at regular intervals to maintain the optimal performance of your reconditioned engine.
4. Keep it Cool
A reconditioned engine, like any other engine, needs to maintain a proper temperature to function optimally. The cooling system – comprising the radiator, water pump, thermostat, and coolant – plays a vital role in this. Ensure your coolant is replaced during regular services and check coolant levels frequently, especially during hotter months.
5. Easy Does It
After reconditioning, treat your engine gently for the first few hundred miles. This means avoiding high speeds, sudden acceleration, and heavy loads. This period allows your reconditioned engine to ‘break-in’ and ensures all parts are working well together.
Taking care of your reconditioned engine may seem like a daunting task, but with these top tips, you’ll be well on your way to enjoying a smooth and efficient ride for many more miles to come. Remember, at ARA Engine Reconditioning, our team of experts is always here to assist and guide you.
