Importance of Changing Your Oil and Performing Regular Maintenance

Oil Change | Essential Auto Care

The average vehicle is comprised of over 30,000 different parts, counting every part down to the bolts and screws. Thousands of those parts are in constant motion and hundreds are found in the engine. Without the proper lubrication of those parts, wear and tear will dramatically degrade the integrity your engine and its performance. The cost of regular oil changes far outweigh the cost of internal engine components.

Each vehicle has a specific weight and grade of engine oil required, and it is highly recommended to have the oil level correctly maintained to ensure proper lubrication. In addition to the oil itself, oil filters are equally as important to ensure that any particulate matter and sludge are properly filtered from the lubrication system. This will make certain that your oil will perform its best until the next oil service is due.

In general, routine maintenance and checks will promote your vehicle’s longevity and aid in preventing costly repairs. One of the most important things you can do for your vehicle is keep your engine in top condition by changing oil every 4000 to 5000 miles or every 6 months, whichever comes first.

Our ASE certified technicians know all of the requirements for your specific vehicle and are specially trained to check the integrity of your vehicle’s engine lubrication system.
