Oil is Important for your Vehicle

When you maintain your vehicle, you want to check everything that helps it to run smooth and efficiently. One of these things is the oil. The oil is important because it lubricates the engines and moving parts of it. Over time the oil will get old and need to be changed. It is important to contact us and we can recommend an oil change schedule for your vehicle based on your vehicle and where you drive. Without oil, your vehicle will not operate properly, and the engine will eventually seize up. This will result in a costly repair bill.

If you notice any signs of a leak, make sure to bring the vehicle in. If the oil is leaking it can cost more than normal because you will have to refill it often. It can also cause the parts to wear against one another and need to be replaced sooner than they typically should. Make sure to check the oil in your vehicle regularly and before any long trip you might go on. This can help keep the vehicle at top performance levels. It is also recommended to have an extra quart or two of oil in the back seat of your car. This way if the oil light comes on, you are able to top it off without the worry of trying to find a place to purchase the oil.

A regular oil change is needed to keep the oil in a fresh and clean condition. As the oil becomes old, it will get dirty and have pollutants in it. When the oil is changed, also remember that the oil filter should be checked is well. A oil filter will typically be replaced on every other oil change. The filter will help collect the pollutants and dirt as the oil passes through the filter. This prevents these particles from damaging the parts of the engine. No matter if you need an oil change, or want the vehicle to be inspected for general safety, bring it in so we can help provide you with a safe and reliable driving experience.
