DIY Oil Change in Your Buick Cars

oil changeHave you ever considered changing the oil in your Buick cars by yourself?  Well, there are a few things to keep in mind before setting out to handle this routine task, but for the most part, it can be done at home.  Many of us would just rather pay a professional simply to avoid the hassle.  If this better describes you, then you will want to know that you can get a really great deal on oil changes at your Buick Cars Service Center in Thunder Bay.  However, for those of you still wanting to explore the options of taking things into your own hands, changing the oil in your car is something that any DIYer can do.

Here are some tidbits from one article online that covers the subject well, “Although changing the oil might appear rather ‘duh,’ there are still a lot of folks doing it wrong, making it an ugly chore or overpaying for oil changes they could do themselves. Plus, it’s the single most important task you can do to make your engine last.”

Changing your own oil isn’t difficult—you may have even done it yourself years ago.  Although we mention above that it really doesn’t cost a lot to have the service center at your local Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer handle the task for you, some people still hesitate to pay for something they can handle themselves.  You will want to research a few things before the DIY process begins.  Which oil filter will best serve you?  They make economy filters, but they are only good for about 3,000 miles.  Many people will be changing the oil again by then, so that may not be a big deal.  Make sure you have the correct oil in terms of viscosity.  You will find all that you need to know, for the most part, in the manual for your Buick Car.  Good luck and remember, if all else fails, consult your Thunder Bay Buick Car Service Center.

Gain and Balance in New GMC Trucks

balanceDiesel Duramax engines in the newest GMC Trucks in Ontario has the industry buzzing. Here, we wish to wrap up our segment on these new Truck engines and make sure to finish pointing out all that is great about them here.  “The new Duramax 6.6L is a next-generation redesign of the venerable turbo-diesel engine and incorporates a new, GM-developed control system. The Duramax’s signature low-rpm torque production hasn’t changed, offering 90 percent of peak torque at a low 1,550 rpm and sustaining it through 2,850 rpm — an attribute that contributes to the Sierra HD’s confident pulling power.”

So, obviously power in the push and pull are both being added to these trucks as a result of these new engines.  The GMC Trucks for sale at your Thunder Bay GMC Truck dealer with these new engines also have something else new this year, patent is pending, but the air intake system which you can identify on the GMC Sierra HD by its bold scoop in the hood, will drive cool and dry air into the engine, helping to sustain these trucks performance and allow for cooler engine air temperatures at almost all times.

The cooler air, mentioned above, that results from this new intake construction, is essential in engine health and function.  “Cooler air helps the engine run better under load, especially in conditions where engine and transmission temperatures can rise quickly. That allows the Duramax to maintain more power and vehicle speed when trailering in the toughest conditions.”  So, the gain here, when it comes to these Thunder Bay Truck engines in Canada, is definitely in engine ability, but what many don’t understand is that with any new abilities, other things often times must be considered and constructed to maintain the balance of the engine.  The above air intake and discussion of engine temperature is a prime example of this concept at work.

Buick Cars are Moving in the Right Direction

directionsBuick cars are the ones we talk about today and we want to concentrate on sales numbers and the massive success they have shown over the recent days.  “Buick delivered nearly 1.2 million vehicles in China, the United States, Canada and Mexico in 2014, marking the second consecutive sales record for the most Buicks sold in a single year in the brand’s 111-year history.”  Moving to the current model years and the new Buick cars for sale in Thunder Bay ON, we see that they have increased both globally and in Canada and the US for Buick Car sales.

Some of the actual numbers are as follows and totally prove their sales success, “Strong growth in both China and North America resulted in global sales of 1,170,115 units, up 13.4 percent over 2013.”  China showed a 13.5 percent sales gain, while the U.S. depicted an 11.4 percent sales increase. Canada also saw strong increases in sales of their Buick cars at your local Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealership.  They reported a 31 percent increase this year.  Interestingly enough, many of these sales are being derived from new Buick Car owners and fans.  There was a report that confirms 42% of the new owners are entirely new to Buick Cars.

Buick Cars are not the only category to see an increase in sales, however.  We found, in our research on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer that Buick experienced strong global growth in both crossovers and sedans from a product lineup that is among the freshest in the industry and the strongest the brand has ever featured, according to many different reviews online who all agree to one thing…things have been and still are looking up and heading in the right direction for Buick cars.
