You’ll never have to worry about old oil ruining your car’s engine when you come to us for a consistent oil change service.
Do You Need an Oil Change?
As many vehicle owners know, it’s important to have the oil regularly checked and changed. Doing this ensures the engine is always filled with fresh, clean oil, and that can help maintain and improve the performance of your vehicle. But outside of looking at the service sticker, it’s helpful to know other warning signs that your car needs an oil change. Not sure what to look for? No problem, our team has you covered:
During its lifespan, your car’s oil will cycle through the engine hundreds of times to keep it clean and lubricated. Over time, the oil will begin to deteriorate and lose some of its helpful properties as it picks up contaminants found throughout the engine. As a result, the oil will begin to take on an old and dirty appearance, and although it may be a cause for concern, it’s quite normal. With that said, we suggest changing the oil out as soon as possible. Continuing to use old oil can eventually harm the engine, and you’ll be left needing a service much more expensive than an oil change.
Low Oil Levels
Like gasoline, motor oil can be consumed or burnt up, although the process is much slower compared to gas. Low oil levels, while normal, can starve the engine and create significant problems such as lack of lubrication, which can lead to high-speed parts to harm themselves. As a result, major damage could occur and leave the engine in a state-of-disrepair, which is something your car and wallet don’t want to deal with. We suggest filling up the oil to its proper levels, but also be careful of overfilling, as this can be just as bad as low oil levels.
