Using the Right Engine Oil for Your Car

Using the Right Engine Oil for Your Car

Modern cars are very understandably a whole lot more complex than what we grew up with through advancements in technology and environmental awareness. Fuel efficiencies have become the more important bi-product of engine design, along with the ever-growing mandates for cleaner emissions. There are many different motors on today's roads, cloaked underneath sleek bodies, carrying platforms of variable sizes and purposes and the people they transport from place to place. To keep these motors running, many oil types exist as well, and most 21st century cars have been developed with specific-to-the motor lubricants. This means that it is crucial to understand which engine oil is applicable on your vehicle, and if you are having a hard time figuring out what you should put in yours, we're more than willing to guide you!

2.0T Cam Bridge Induced Engine Failure

The purpose of this post is to educate owners of 2.0 liter TSI Volkswagen / Audi motors about a critical design flaw which can lead to very swift, catastrophic engine damage. For 2.0T TSI VW/Audi motors that have engine code CBFA, CCTA, CAEB or CPMA; it is vital that you read this briefing pertaining to a common irregularity with your motor. The camshaft bridge in your 2.0T is a vital engine component that is responsible for distributing engine oil (hydraulic lubrication) to the camshafts themselves, and this "bridge" contains an engineered cavity purpose-built to house a regulated check ball that regulates oil pressure to the camshafts.  The design flaw we are referring to in this post is a poorly mounted protective metal screen which protects the pressure regulation check ball. This screen is supposed to be rolled/peened over the plastic lip surrounding the cavity, but most times is found to be loose or missing (VW's method of assembly is evidently flawed).
