Oil Change

Why are oil changes really important?

Oil lubricates are the internals of your vehicle's engine. When your oil is dirty or the levels run low it can create very costly problems. You see, oil prevents metal on metal contact, avoiding friction inside your engine. This friction then creates extreme heat that can cause two metal surfaces to weld together and seize your engine. Take pistons for example, they require oil to keep them moving smoothly up and down in the cylinders. Without oil, they would freeze and destroy your engine. So, what if the level of your oil is ok but it's dirty? Well this creates a lot of problems too. For example:

Dirty oil will eventually clog your oil filter, so it will then have to bypass the filter and go through the relief valve.

Dirty oil is thicker and actually has abrasive qualities, so it causes more friction and wear on your engine.

The oil won't lubricate like it should, and eventually will fail altogether - causing your engine to ultimately give out on you.

So don't slip up when it comes to oil changes. Check for service specials and schedule your affordable oil change today online, or give our service department at (844) 327-8978. We look forward to speaking to you.
