I am so happy to have found Malik Motors!

I am so happy to have found Malik Motors. I got really sick of dealing with a Ford Dealership due to them never having time to service us and making us wait hours/days/weeks for service. My company has 2 shuttle buses and we had issues with the bus. Ford refused to even look at it to diagnose. So I found Malik, Barry and Daisy were amazing over the phone to help. When I showed up to discuss my issues, they were attentive and requested I bring my bus. They immediately looked at it diagnosed it and ordered parts to fix it. Monday 9/12/16 at 1pm. Barry called me Tuesday 9/13/16 morning at 10:42 to tell me the bus was fixed. The team at this shop is amazing and wanting to help anyone possible. I will never go back to the Ford dealership I have dealt with for the past 2 years. Malik is my new mechanic and I can't be happier with the service, professionalism and honesty. I would give them a 10 star rating if I could. They just gained a new client, that has lots of mechanical issues for being so great on every level. I highly recommend Malik Motors. - Sandra Google 5 Star Review

Motor Oil: Synthetic vs. Regular

Motor oil can be a confusing beast that results in a number of questions. Do I really need synthetic? Does my new car take conventional? Understanding the basics of the different types of oil will help you answer these questions.

Synthetic motor oils are designed to excel at extreme temperatures. Regular motor oils are mineral-based: they come from crude oil that is taken out of the ground and run through a refinery. Synthetics, on the other hand, are man-made in a chemical plant. They tend to be more consistent in viscosity over various temperatures.

While synthetics can improve your engine performance, they don't eliminate the need for regular oil changes. Synthetics can handle heat better than regular motor oil, but additives can only work for so long and the engine will still contaminate the oil.



Viscosity Simplified

You see those cryptic combinations of letters and numbers on motor oil bottles everywhere. What do they mean?  To decipher them, you have to understand viscosity. Viscosity measures how much the motor oil can resist flow. In other words, if you tip a motor oil bottle over, how fast it spills out indicates its viscosity. The more viscous, the slower it moves.

Knock, Knock. Wrong Octane!

Octane. You see the word every time you visit the gas station but what does it mean?  Octane ratings measure fuel's ability to resist engine knock. Engine knock is caused by fuel being ignited by something other than the spark plug.
