As a result of advances in technology, emission control requirements, and new pressurization systems, modern vehicle engines run a lot hotter than their older counterparts.
Older vehicles tended to run at around 180 degrees (Fahrenheit). Newer vehicles can run at 210 degrees and more. Even with year-round coolants, the amount an engine cools down during use is reduced. Furthermore, we change our oil only at substantially longer intervals than we used to.
In today’s post, we’re going to explore what this means for drivers and how you can maintain and restore engine performance.
What Do Warmer Engines Mean for Drivers?
All of the factors discussed above mean that while modern engines offer us an incredible amount of performance, they’re also under a lot more stress than ever before.
Two processes are more likely to occur: thermal breakdown and oxidative breakdown. Basically, continuous heat and oxygen levels put stress on the components of your engine. This can lead to the oil thickening, heat getting trapped and thus warming the engine further, and the formation of heavy deposits.
Deposits are perhaps the worst problem of the bunch, since they can impede the normal functioning of your piston-ring. This leads to lower fuel economy, reduced power, increased oil consumption, and harmful exhaust emissions.
The solution? A process developed by BG called the dynamic engine restoration service. In a moment, we’ll discuss how it resolves these common issues quickly and affordably. But first, let’s take a look at how you might be able to tell you need the service in the first place.
How to Know if You Need a Dynamic Engine Restoration Service
As mentioned in the title of this blog post, the first indications that a dynamic engine restoration service might be necessary are going to be a loss of power and additional exhaust smoke—though these symptoms don’t necessarily have to come as a pair.
You’re also likely to notice reduced fuel economy, costing you more and more at the gas pump to go the same amount of distance. This alone is enough to motivate many drivers to reach out to their local BG-certified auto shop, because the costs can really start to stack up quickly.
Furthermore, you may experience a slowdown in acceleration or a general loss of power. This can even be a bit dangerous, as your vehicle won’t handle as well as it usually does—it’s especially a problem for highway driving.
If you’re experience one or more of these problems, visiting an automotive professional is the best thing you can do for your vehicle, not just for the present, but for the long run as well. Too much heat, heavy deposits, or other stressors on the engine can reduce its effective lifespan by a noticeable amount.
Now that you know what to look for, let’s examine how the BG dynamic engine restoration service actually works.
What the BG Dynamic Engine Restoration Service Does
When you bring your vehicle in to a certified BG mechanic, he or she will perform a series of services using different BG products, each of which has been designed to restore the performance of your vehicle’s engine.
These products are:
- BG Dynamic Engine Cleaner and BG Dynamic Engine Cleaner Rinse Oil
- BG Advanced Formula MOA®
- BG 44K® Platinum™
Oil sludge and varnish will be removed including heavy deposits. This will help restore compression for the engine, returning power and fuel efficiency. Furthermore, these BG products are designed to be harmless to oil pumps, seals, and gaskets, so you never have to worry about causing additional, unwanted wear-and-tear to your engine.
After the service, you’ll have reduced exhaust emissions and slower, cleaner usage of oil as well. Overall, drivers will experience an improvement in power and engine efficiency.
