With regular oil changes, the vehicle can be safe, reliable, and even improve the longevity. The oil is designed to properly lubricate the engine. This ensures that the parts and components of the engine are working efficiently and at top performance. Without the oil changes, dirt, grime, and other pollutants will get into the engine. This will cause issues because the engine will not be able to operate smoothly. Eventually little to no oil will be able to get through to the engine, causing it to seize up completely. If you notice any odd noises from the vehicle, make sure to contact us for an appointment. This will help ensure the engine and vehicle is operating properly.
Regular Oil Changes and Mileage
One of the benefits of proper oil changes is that you can get better gas mileage as well. When proper maintenance is done, the dirt and contaminates will not build up inside the engine. Otherwise friction and strain will happen to all the parts. Always make sure the engine has clean oil so while the engine runs efficiently, then the gas mileage will improve also. If you notice poor mileage, we can inspect the vehicle and engine for you.
With oil changes, the engine performance will be better as well. Old oil will break down when exposed to heat over time. It will lose any viscosity and ability to lubricate the engine cylinders. This will then result in sludge building up and blocking the flow of the oil to where it needs to go. The oil also is designed to draw heat away from parts of the engine. If these parts are covered in sludge, then it will stay hotter, longer, and also damage the engine. Anytime the vehicle starts to overheat or has issues running, contact us so we can inspect it for what the source of the problem is. This can help you to have a safe and enjoyable drive this summer.
