It came into service after adding sugar to the oil to extend the life of the engine

The engine is perhaps the most important component of a car, always deserving of our full attention and care. It’s normal to want the investment we make in a car to last as long as possible. Thus, we sometimes end up putting into practice all kinds of tricks that we hear would extend the life of the car we drive. Today, with a simple click we can find a whole series of tips and recommendations in this regard.

Not everything we find on the internet is correct, however, so it would be good to know where to get such recommendations. Otherwise, we can end up like this driver who took his car in for service with a rather unusual problem.

The mechanics from that service were not small in their surprise when they were told what actually happened. From a post on a Facebook group, we learn that the driver told them that following some tips he saw on TikTok, he decided to add sugar to the oil to extend the life of the engine of the car he had just bought.

He changed the engine after less than 1000 kilometers

The car was brand new with less than 1000 kilometers on the clock. However, adding sugar to the oil completely destroyed his engine, as can be seen from the photos taken by the car service people who solved this problem. In the end, the driver opted for a replaced engine and no small bill to pay.

So, be very careful when you are presented with various tips and tricks on specialized forums or social networks. In fact, the best recommendation we can give you is to always consult with a specialist from an authorized car service.
