Below is a list of the types of automotive lubricants you should be applying at every service interval, depending on various usage scenarios.

1. Motor Oil

A high grade, top quality brand of motor oil is vital to avoid accelerated engine component wear and tear and corrosion, as well as to reduce foaming. Excessive foaming reduces the lubricating properties of the oil, leading to accelerated wear and tear.

Motor oil is not only important for lubricating, it is also important to keep your engine cool and clean. Fuchs’ Titan Formula SL 15W-40 Engine Oil will deliver superior performance to both petrol and diesel engines.

2. Gear Oil

This type of oil is key in making sure that gears are lubricated.

It is most often used in manual transmission vehicles, as well as in the vehicle’s differential.

Gear oil differs from normal engine oil in that it is a heavy duty lubricant that performs well in high temperatures.

It’s a much thicker oil than normal engine oil, which is absolutely critical for protecting gear mechanism. A better quality gear oil will much longer lubrication than a cheaper option, requiring less frequent changes, and certainly, a longer lasting gear box.

Choosing a high-quality gear oil such as WM Penn Gear Oil may be key to your car or trucks long term optimal performance.

3. Automatic Transmission Fluid

A quality automatic transmission fluid like Fuchs Wm Penn Type II-D will ensure smooth movement of the different gears and parts of the vehicle’s automatic transmission, while at the same time keeping all the hundreds of little gears and levers of the automatic transmission cool and protected from corrosion.

Repairs to automatic transmission systems are incredibly expensive. Why take shortcuts? Use the best quality automatic transmission fluid to ensure the longest life span possible.

As a penetrating oil, it will help loosen tight bolts and completely silence those squeaky door hinges. Molyslip Combat Lubricating Oil is available in 200ml and 400ml cans.

5. Marine Grease

A waterproof marine grease is specifically used in areas where there is a risk of water penetration. A product like Renolit LC-WP2 will reduce corrosion, protect against wear-and-tear and will not easily wash away in water.

In addition to many commercial and industrial applications, Renolit Marine Grease is useful for protecting boat trailer wheel bearings and the bearings of vehicles used to launch boats at ocean or fresh water slipways.
