OIL CHANGE / LUBE OIL AND FILTER SERVICE
The benefits of regular oil changes are many. In order to keep your vehicle performing optimally and to get the maximum life from your engine, your vehicle ABSOLUTELY needs an oil and filter change regularly. Why does your engine need a regular oil change? Let’s keep it simple and highlight some key facts about oil. Engine oil is a:
Lubricant – Oil, whether it is synthetic or natural is first and foremost a lubricant. After a while the oil will break down and lose its lubricating properties, this is natural and with almost any vehicle this will occur every 3 months of solid driving or 3,500-5,000 miles.
Coolant – Oil’s lubricating properties reduce friction and pulls heat away from the moving parts of the engine. Also most newer cars have an oil cooler that pumps cooled oil back through the engine to reduce overall temperature.
Cleaner – Engine oil will filter debris from the crank case and oil galleys. Most oil is also built with detergent packs which keep all internal moving parts clean. Cheap oil will work for any vehicle but your vehicle can really benefit from the good stuff.
The Importance Of An Oil Filter
Because engine oil is in constant contact with the many moving parts it can start to collect minor pieces of debris. An oil filter will sift these fine particles of debris out and collect them in its catch. If debris is left to build up the filter can become clogged, reducing the flow of needed oil to the moving internal parts and the entire system can suffer. Changing the engine oil filter is recommended to ensure safe operation.
A professional Auto shop, like ours, can test your oil for signs of abnormal wear or metal deposits. Catching these abnormalities early can help you save big money and increase fuel efficiency and the overall health and lifespan of your engine.
