Auto Care Myths Busted

Goodwrench Busts Auto Care Myths One Myth at a Time - Effort begins by educating consumers that 3,000-mile oil changes are a thing of the past

GRAND BLANC, Mich . – Goodwrench is sending a few automotive maintenance myths to the scrap heap in an effort to help consumers save money, time and wear and tear on the environment. The effort continues with the biggest myth in the business, the often-recommended 3,000-mile / three-month oil change.

GM is debunking this myth with its patented engine Oil Life System (OLS). Because GM’s OLS tells vehicle owners exactly when to change their oil based on individual driving habits, a motorist who drives an average of 15,000 miles per year, this could mean between two to three fewer oil changes annually.

“The GM Oil Life System monitors combustion events, engine temperature and other parameters to gauge the oil's life,” said Matthew Snider, GM’s lead engineer for the GM Oil Life System . “Over the years, millions of test miles have been accumulated to calibrate the system for a variety of vehicles. Keeping pace with technology, the system continues to be upgraded periodically to account for advances in lubrication and engine design.”

Besides saving time and money, cutting out unnecessary oil changes also helps protect the environment. According to Margo Reid Brown, director of the California Environmental Protection Agency’s California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB), just one gallon of oil that makes its way into our waterways can pollute a million gallons of water.

Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) October 21, 2008 -- October 21, 2008 Hands On Tools Inc., a recognized leader in auto mechanics tools and equipment is seeing a boom in the Mechanic's Tools industry.

During a recent interview with Charles Gottlinger, CEO of Hands On Tools Inc, Mr. Gottlinger discussed the reasons for a dramatic increase in the demand for tools and employment opportunities in the mechanics tools industry.

"We have all seen the news about the sluggish economy and its influence on the auto industry. Auto manufacturers across the board are seeing significant downtrends in new auto sales".
