The Fluids In Your New Toyota
Synthetic Motor Oil
Synthetic motor oil allows you to drive more miles between oil changes than conventional crude. Synthetic oil also improves temperature stability and fuel economy. The time when your car's engine is at the most risk is during warm up. This is when the fluids are coming to temperature.
This is an essential period for motor oil. Most new Toyota models run a zero weight synthetic motor oil that pumps with higher efficiency when the engine is cold to compensate for this. During this period, the oil can provide an even lubrication.
Conventional Toyota Motor Oil
Conventional motor oil is the lifeblood of your engine. Oil lubricates the moving parts to reduce friction and overheating. Toyota motor oil shields your engine from premature wear and damage. Motor oil also shields metal and gasket surfaces from corrosion and maintains the correct amount of lubrication on the walls of the cylinders.
Car Battery Cleaner
Toyota offers a unique formula which contains an acid detector, protector, cleaner, and neutralizer in one spray can. This proprietary battery cleaner is for application on car batteries, terminals, and cables. Battery cleaner is designed to penetrate battery corrosion and emulsify grease, dirt, and other contaminants. Toyota batter cleaner will change color from light red to blue in the presence of battery acid.
Coolant flows through your vehicle's engine and radiator to prevent overheating. The proper mixture of antifreeze and coolant is essential if you drive in climates where temperatures drop below freezing. Antifreeze will keep the water from freezing in your engine block overnight. Toyota offers a mixture that shields your engine without corroding aluminum surfaces or using harmful silicates.
High-temperature, low moisture absorbing brake fluid engineered by Toyota engineers delivers heavy-duty performance in all Toyota automotive brake systems where DOT 3 fluid or higher is recommended.
If the brakes on your used Toyota truck are starting to chatter or squeak, brake cleaner is an easy way to remove oil, excess brake fluid, grease, and other contaminants from your vehicle's rotors, and calipers. Brake cleaner is also beneficial because it does not leave any residue that could potentially result in slipping.
Automatic Transmission Fluid
Automatic transmission fluid protects the life of your transmission. Transmission fluid also offers smooth gear changes and lubrication characteristics.
