Celebrities Who Love Vintage Car Repair

The Rappers, Boxers and Wrestlers Who Love Cars

Yeah, we already knew about Jay Leno and we could probably have pegged Jerry Seinfeld, but who knew Funkmaster Flash took time out of the recording studio to tinker with restoring vintage cars? Or that Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather has spent over $7 million on adult size Hotwheel cars for his garage? Even former WWE wrestler and pro football player Bill Goldberg is into vintage car repair.

Chris Evans, Radio presenter – there is no doubting his enthusiasm for performance cars which explains one of his most recent purchases, a McLaren 650S.

But when is comes to maintaining our motors – do we really know what to do?

When should I change my gearbox oil and filter?

We would always recommend a professional when it comes to working with cars and oil filters

If your vehicle or machinery doesn’t have an oil life monitoring system that automatically alerts you when your gear oil requires changing, knowing when to change your gear oil and filter can be an imperfect science, but there are guides for different types of vehicles:
– Manual gearboxes usually require a gearbox oil change every 30,000 to 50,000 mi (48,000 to 80,000 km).
– Automatic gearboxes usually have gear oil change intervals of between 60,000 to 100,000 mi (96,000 to 160,000 km).
– It’s advisable that you change your gearbox oil filter at the same time as your oil.

If you have a gearbox leak repaired, then always change your oil after the repair to ensure it’s fully topped up.

You can handle basic routine vehicle maintenance yourself, by following a regular schedule as outlined in your owner’s manual.
