Oil Change

Oil Change

An oil change is one of the most affordable, yet decidedly the most vital step to keeping your vehicle running smoothly and maximizing its driving expectancy. You don’t simply need to keep the oil topped above the line, the oil just needs to be clean. The cleaner the oil, the more efficient it works. Eventually, the engine oil breaks down and no longer lubricates as well, so it needs to be consistently drained and replenished. While it’s a little more expensive, consider synthetic oil since it has a longer lifespan than conventional oil.

Not only does the grit in dirty oil wear highly precise surfaces, but the acids that contaminated oil always contain are dissolving internal engine parts while the car is sitting idle. Consistent oil changes fend off breakdowns and extend the life of your engine by thousands of hours. It’s as simple as that. If your car is seasonal, once a year is not often enough. Change the oil when you commission your car in the spring and when you winterize it in the fall. You will never get a better return on a $40 investment than from changing your oil twice a year.

It’s recommended that you have your oil changes every 3000 miles or every three months. While changing your oil is a fairly speedy process, they do not rush the job through. When oil and oil filters are changed it’s important to allow time for all of the oil to drain out of the bottom of the oil pan. Quick and dirty jobs are just that, dirty and quick. Oil lubricates the instruments in the engine, preventing friction. Without lubrication, the engine parts will rub directly on each other, causing severe damage and eventually even engine failure.
Don’t forget the filter.
