What should I use to lubricate my car?
Last Updated: 23rd April, 2020

- WD-40 is a lubricant used for many household items as well as car parts.
- Silicone spray is gentler and lubricates areas that contain non-metal parts.

Also, what is the best lubricant for car doors?
White lithium grease is good for metal-to- metal joints like hinge and latch mechanisms, which need a clinging grease to repel water and hold up under harsh conditions. WD-40 is for light-duty lubrication and freeing up sticking or partially rusted hinges and a car door latch.
Additionally, what should I use to lubricate door hinges? The two best lubricants to use on hinges are silicone spray and plumber's grease (a light, odorless grease used to lubricate O-rings and other rubbing surfaces in plumbing fixtures). Silicone spray, if used properly, it is the least sloppy and fairly long lasting.
Besides, what is needed to lubricate a car?
Proper lube can prevent binding and freezing and save you the cost of a busted regulator. You can lubricate your car in less than 20 minutes. All you need is dry Teflon spray, spray lithium grease, a rag and glass cleaner.
Is white lithium grease the same as WD 40?
An aerosol grease that sprays on evenly as a liquid and sets dry for a thick protective coating that won't run off. WD-40® Specialist® Protective White Lithium Grease provides protection for metal-to-metal applications that require heavy-duty lubrication and protection against rust and corrosion.
