ConocoPhillips Lubricants Adds Liquid Titanium to Kendall GT-1 Motor Oils for Enhanced Engine Protection

ConocoPhillips Company, the fourth largest U.S. lubricants supplier, is pleased to announce that it has added the exclusive Liquid Titanium additive to the majority of its Kendall GT-1 Motor Oils, including synthetic blend, full synthetic and high mileage offerings. The new Kendall GT-1 Motor Oils engineered with Liquid Titanium are designed to help reduce friction, fight engine wear and most importantly, prolong engine life, according to Steve Tarbox, director, product management, ConocoPhillips Lubricants. 

“The addition of ConocoPhillips Lubricants’ Liquid Titanium technology to the Kendall Motor Oil line offers drivers a completely new way to get the most out of their vehicle’s engine life by forming an extra layer of protection on critical metal-to-metal hot spots to fight engine wear,” said Tarbox.  “It provides a great solution in these tough economic times for customers wanting to keep their car engines running longer.” 

Tests show that the Liquid Titanium in Kendall GT-1 Motor Oils bonds to critical engine parts, creating a molecular shield that helps reduce surface damage and deliver ultimate protection to consumers. Rigorous industry testing, including the Sequence IIIG engine test, found that Kendall GT-1 5W-20 motor oil with Liquid Titanium reduced wear by 75 percent when compared to the International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC) GF-4 performance requirements, and by 55 percent when compared to a competitive 5W-20 oil.  Additionally, in Sequence IVA tests, Kendall GT-1 5W-20 motor oil with Liquid Titanium reduced wear by 85 percent when compared to the ILSAC GF-4 performance requirements, and by 60 percent when compared to competitive 5W-20 oil. 

“ConocoPhillips Lubricants witnessed an overwhelming industry response to the introduction of the Liquid Titanium additive to its line of heavy duty engine oils last year and has remained committed to providing our passenger car customers with access to the same industry-leading technology,” added Tarbox.  “We have conducted extensive research on the impact of this state-of-the-art Liquid Titanium additive and tests have shown that it dramatically reduces friction, which may lead to fuel economy improvements.  We are thrilled to now provide this exclusive engine protection to all customers.” 

In support of the launch of Kendall GT-1 motor oils with Liquid Titanium, ConocoPhillips Lubricants will implement extensive print and online marketing and advertising campaigns intended to raise awareness and generate demand of these new products. In addition, the company will introduce a digital marketing campaign that includes a cutting-edge 3D engine demo that demonstrates the application of Liquid Titanium coating critical engine wear hot spots.

Transmission Line Replacement

Transmission fluid likes to be at a constant temperature. If it is too hot or too cold for too long, the performance can fluctuate and potentially cause damage to the transmission.

Transmission fluid likes to be at a constant temperature. If it is too hot or too cold for too long, the performance can fluctuate and potentially cause damage to the transmission.
If the fluid is at a constant temperature, it behaves in a consistent manner in terms of its friction and lubrication properties. What can help control the temperature is the transmission cooling circuit.
The path of the fluid in the transmission lines is not as much about the destination as the journey. The size and length of the transmission lines, along with the size of the cooler, controls the temperature of the fluid. Also, the size of the engine and weight of the vehicle can determine the design of the transmission fluid cooling circuit.
Another thing to consider is how a modified transmission with a larger transmission cooling circuit might do more damage than good. On modern vehicles, the cooling circuit is designed to manage the fluid temperatures during startup. If the fluid can’t warm up quickly due to the increased volume, damage to the transmission friction surfaces can occur. The same goes for a bypassed cooling circuit. Why? Because fluid that is too hot can damage friction surfaces.

A clogged oil separator valve is a common problem on many BMW DOHC inline sixes. The high failure rate is caused by sludge build-up that can result in oil burning, rough idle and engine fault codes. Although the solution is pretty simple, replacing the valve is labor intensive and can take anywhere from six to nine hours.

Oil Bath Air Filters

Long before people started using cotton gauze air filters soaked in oil, the oil bath air filter was the dominant filter on the market. The filter removes debris in the air by running it over oil and a mesh element. These filters worked great when most roads were dirt, but they could be messy to clean.
