If you purchase you are Not buying the product from us (The Repair Specialist), you are buying from an Amazon seller.
My mission is to take subjects that can seem quite daunting and somewhat difficult to understand and explain them in such a way that everyone can understand and benefit. All too often things are explained to us in a way that is difficult to grasp. I really hope that all of my tutorials are understandable by most, if not all, people who wish to view them.
I want to help people understand as I was helped by some fantastic mentors during my years as a University student, in Science, and a trainee apprentice as an engineer. In fact, I could NOT have became a qualified repair engineer or a Science graduate if I never had these wonderful people in my life.
Sadly, some of them are no longer with us to see these videos, which I really want to dedicate to them. More than anyone else, I want to dedicate these to my Father, who is still a practicing engineer, for always pushing me into this field and ensuring I applied my mind to it, and for my amazing late mother, who nurtured, cared, loved and motivated me all of my life. When I was down she would always reach down and stand me back up again, telling me I was worth something. I only wish I could thank her in person and show her these videos. I realise now that she was my biggest and most amazing mentor.
Thank you for 40 Golden years mom!
I hope you find this video useful. I have tried to explain the meaning behind the codes you find on the engine oil containers. It basically explains their meaning and why they have been given their particular codes.
Codes may include 5w-30, 10w-30, 10w-40 or 15w-40, to name just a few available.
Many thanks indeed
