History of engine oil
On September 6, 1866 American John Ellis founded the Continuous Oil Refining Company (Later to become Valvoline). While studying the possible healing powers of crude oil, Dr. Ellis was disappointed to find no real medicinal value, but was intrigued by its potential lubricating properties. He eventually abandoned the medical practice to devote his time to the development of an all-petroleum, high viscosity lubricant for steam engines ? then using inefficient combinations of petroleum and animal and vegetable fats. He made his breakthrough when he developed an oil that worked effectively in high temperatures. This meant no more gummed valves, corroded cylinders or leaking seals. In 1873 Ellis officially renamed the company to Valvoline after the steam engine valves the product lubricated.
Do not underestimate the minor faults in the family car
The family car should be, above all, big and safe. Therefore, deciding to buy a car, which will serve all members of the household, usually choose the model that easily accommodates childish seats, and the luggage trolley and of course complex. No less important is the issue of security. But often we forget that a lot depends on us - not only when it comes to careful driving, but also in terms of servicing the car. Faulty brakes may yet lead to a real tragedy, like eg. Oil leak, which is a threat also for other road users. To avoid dangerous situations, it is therefore necessary regular servicing cars - after all, safety is paramount.
Repairing the car after the accident

The reason for the resulting failure can be either a technical defect, for which the driver is not responsible and long-term use of motor oils of poor quality. Therefore, when car repair is done, exchange the damaged parts, and selects a good engine oil, the driver should now use. Allowing the car to re-use will be made only after a thorough verification of the state of the already made repairs.
