  8. How often should we change oil in a classic car?

    classic car care

    Car oil is used to lubricate the moving parts of the engine, which helps to reduce friction and wear and tear. Oil also helps to cool the engine by absorbing and carrying away heat. It also helps to clean the engine by picking up dirt and debris and carrying it away.

    When the oil is pumped through the engine, it flows through a filter, which removes any impurities and debris. The clean oil then flows through various passages and galleries within the engine, lubricating the moving parts and helping to keep the engine cool.

    As the oil flows through the engine, it becomes contaminated with dirt, debris, and other particles. Over time, this can cause the oil to lose its lubricating properties and become less effective at keeping the engine clean and cool. That's why it's important to change the oil on a regular basis to ensure that the engine is always lubricated with fresh oil.

  10. Maximizing the Lifespan of Your Car Battery: A Comprehensive Guide

     car batteries

    A car battery is like a big power pack that helps your car start and run. Inside the battery, there are many small plates that are made of lead. These plates hold the electricity that the car needs to run.

    When you turn the key in the car, the electricity from the battery flows through wires to the engine, which makes the car start moving. The battery also provides power to lights, radio and other electronics in the car.

    To make sure the battery stays charged and can start the car, the alternator, which is like a little power plant in the car, recharges the battery while the car is running. This way, the next time you want to start the car, the battery will have enough power to make it go.
