The Engine’s Lifeblood
When it comes to vehicle maintenance, many of us are told to consistently change the oil. For good reason too, as motor oil is the lifeblood of the engine. It’s responsible for lubricating the variety of components found within it and keeping it clean. Without it, your vehicle would quickly experience problems such as overheating and sludge. If your vehicle is in need of a quick and convenient oil change, make sure you visit Austin’s Automotive Specialists — Leander, Texas’ go-to oil change service center. Our ASE Certified technicians utilize the latest tools, components, and service practices to fill your vehicle with the fresh, clean oil it needs to perform at its best. We’ll make sure that your vehicle never operates with old, dirty oil.
Do You Need an Oil Change?
It’s important that you consistently change the oil in your vehicle. Doing so ensures that the engine is always running on clean oil. With that said, we understand that life can get in the way. We know that sometimes, you won’t be able to make your service appointment and that you may have to wait a little longer for oil service.
During these times, it’s important that you monitor the oil and its condition. Although waiting a little longer than usual won’t hurt the engine in the short term, long periods of time without an oil change will. Technology has made it easier to monitor the oil, as many vehicles come with an oil change light and some even come with a “health bar” for the oil. For those without that luxury, just use the dipstick! When inspecting the oil, make sure it doesn’t look milky, contain metal flakes, or appear thicker in texture. Although it’s normal for motor oil to get dirtier over time, it isn’t normal if it has any of those three aspects. As soon as you notice these problems, make sure you visit our shop immediately.
We understand that life can get in the way and that you can’t always follow a consistent oil service schedule. By knowing the signs of oil deterioration, you can get ahead of all the problems that typically come from bad oil.
