Oil Change

Oil Change Changing engine oil is a crucial maintenance task for several reasons:

  1. Lubrication: Engine oil lubricates moving parts, reducing friction and wear. Over time, oil breaks down and loses its lubricating properties, leading to increased friction and potential damage.
  2. Cooling: Oil helps to dissipate heat away from engine components. Old, degraded oil is less effective at absorbing and transferring heat, which can cause overheating.
  3. Cleaning: Engine oil carries away dirt, debris, and microscopic metal particles from engine components. Over time, oil becomes saturated with these contaminants, which can lead to sludge buildup and reduced engine efficiency.
  4. Corrosion Protection: Oil provides a protective layer that prevents metal components from rusting and corroding. Fresh oil maintains this protective layer more effectively than old oil.
  5. Optimal Performance: Regular oil changes help maintain optimal engine performance and fuel efficiency. Dirty oil can lead to sluggish engine response and reduced mileage.
  6. Extended Engine Life: Consistent oil changes prevent excessive wear and tear, helping to extend the life of the engine and prevent costly repairs. Neglecting to change engine oil regularly can result in engine damage, decreased performance, and potentially expensive repairs. Following the manufacturer’s recommended oil change intervals is essential to keep the engine running smoothly and efficiently.
