The Importance of Regular Oil Change Service
Why are Oil and Filter Changes Necessary?
You may or may not know that oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle. Without it your engine cannot perform as intended. Regular oil change service is not only suggested but needed to keep your vehicle running and in good condition. Engine oil has a few chief functions; reduce friction and heat, lubricate moving parts, and removing dirt and other particles found over time and usage. Additionally, additives such as dispersants, detergents, and rust inhibitors are added. These additives not only increase the life of your oil but also aid in engine performance. Staying current with your vehicle’s general maintenance is important walk-ins and same day service is available today.
What Happens if I Forget or Fail to Change My Oil?
Forgetting to change your oil happens, but you shouldn’t let it happen often or repetitively. Failing to have an oil change can result in a lack of performance, fuel efficiency, unexpected breakdowns, and the worst-case scenario is engine lock up. Overtime oil will lose its viscosity and the ability to aid in the removal of dirt, particles, and carbon that build up within your engine. Regular service intervals are more than important they are crucial.
