Rust Check Method for Superior Rust Protection

Rust Check Method for Superior Rust Protection

The Rust Check rust proofing method is a proven approach to providing optimal rust protection for your vehicle.

The Rust Check product was first introduced way back in 1973 and vehicle owners have been reaping the benefits of protection ever since.

The Rust Check method is so effective because the Rust Check spray has enough viscosity to provide excellent protection, but it is not as thick as most rust proofing sealants which don’t penetrate small cracks and hard to reach areas.

Preventative rust proofing is the recommended approach, to stop rust before it has a chance to start.

Once rust has begun to from, it can be contained and managed, but the process cannot be reversed.

Don’t wait until you spot rust on your car to begin rust proofing treatments.

What is the Rust Check method?

The Rust Check method involves using a light oil-based spray that contains active additives that prevent the formation of rust and corrosion.

The Rust Check spray is able to penetrate deep into the gaps and fissures in your car to expel moisture and prevent it from getting back in.

Moisture is one of the required ingredients for rust formation. The other is oxygen. If the metal components of your vehicle are exposed to the combination of oxygen and moisture for too long, rust and corrosion could soon strike.

What does the Rust Check method protect?

The Rust Check process ensures that all exterior metal trim and electrical connections and components are full rust protected.

This include things like:

  • Door posts
  • Front cowling
  • Trunk and perimeter
  • Trailer hitch and any attached wiring
  • Hood and inner panels
  • Fenders and bumpers
  • Tail lights
  • Wheel wells
  • Headlights
  • Door panels
  • Undercarriage

These are a few examples of the kind of comprehensive coverage the Rust Check method provides.

Rust Check Employs a 2-step Process

The proven Rust Check approach involves two main steps to ensure full protection from rust and corrosion.

Step 1 – Rust Check

The first product used in the Rust Check method is a lighter oil-based spray that is applied to all the hinges, bends, folds, and cracks that are found throughout the vehicle.

Step 2 – Coat & Protect

The second step involves using a thicker oil-based spray that is applied mainly to the undercarriage of the vehicle. This provides exceptional protection without sealing in moisture which can cause rusting.

Benefits of the Rust Check Method

There many great advantages to be gained by regularly protecting your vehicle with Rust Check.

Some of the main benefits are:

  • Versatile and effective protection
  • Does not dry out or crack
  • Does not damage the finish
  • Good for new or used vehicles
  • No offensive odours

Versatile Protection

Why Change your Oil for the Winter?

Regular oil changes are a necessary part routine vehicular maintenance. How often your oil needs to be changed depends on a number of factors, such as:

  • Type of vehicle
  • Type of oil used
  • Driving conditions
  • Age of vehicle
  • Duration of long trips
  • Driving frequency
  • Engine temperature

Opinions on how often your oil should be changed can differ immensely, depending on who you are talking to. It is recommended to follow the guidelines set out in the owner’s manual of your vehicle if you are having any doubts.

Many experts would agree that the frequency of required oil changes increases during the winter.

Reasons Oil Changes may be Needed More Often in the Winter

The oil change Brampton services offered at Valvoline Express Care may be required more frequently in the winter for a few different reasons.

One of the main reasons is increased contamination of your engine’s oil in the winter months.

These elevated contamination levels are caused by two main factors:

  1. Water
  2. Fuel

How does water accelerate contamination?

Water gets into the lubrication system of your vehicle more easily in the winter due to a build up of condensation on the engine block in cold weather.

This problem occurs when the engine doesn’t get enough time to warm up while you are driving. This problem is inflated if you are taking short trips in your car on a daily basis.

If too much water gets into the oil, the oil ventilation system can seize up and freeze, causing an oil leak.

How Does Fuel Get into the Lubrication System?

Another problem the lubrication system faces in the winter is the possibility of fuel getting in and mixing with the oil.

This can happen with fuel injected engines that create too rich a mixture in the cold weather, injecting small amounts of fuel into the lubrication system with the oil.

Unburned fuel can sometimes trickle down into the oil pan in low temperatures.

Too much fuel mixed in with the oil decreases its viscosity, making it a less effective lubricator for the engine.

Problems with too much water or fuel mixing in with the oil can lead to serious engine damage and hefty mechanic bills.
