    The 15W40 designation means that the engine oil is a multi-grade, with a viscosity of SAE 40 when hot and one type works in all temperatures which greatly reduces changes of engine knocks.
    An engine knock often results from mechanical damage inside the engine. This damage is as a result of poor lubrication and poor system maintenance, which leads to the damage of fast moving and very hot internal engine parts.
    Once in a while, an engine will knock because it has been repaired with substandard parts or mistakes made during assembling.
    All drivers that purchase used engines ought to carry out pre-cautionary timing belt replacements incase its history or mileage exceeds the replacement interval of 100000 KMS. This will prevent potential engine valve and piston damage in the extent that the timing belt breaks down.
    For Toyota fans, they recommend oil which meets viscosity index 15W40. Use of good engine oil and periodical service with genuine Toyota filters will protect your engine and if you've parked it without use for more than six months, it is recommended that you drain and replenish it with new oil as it ages with time even when you don't drive the car.
    Wishing all those travelling safe journeys but remember to take precautions when it comes to the pandemic that has caused the devoid on travel restrictions.
