If you have an internal combustion engine, then your car needs oil like plants need water. Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle. The pistons and valves of your car are the features that control and regulate the horsepower of your car. Oil is what keeps these features operating correctly. Without enough oil, the valves and pistons cannot move with fluidity, and without any oil, the engine will become too hot and dry to function. It will eventually damage or die, both of which can be expensive and time consuming to fix.
Remaining stringent with your oil checks and changes is vital to keeping a well-running motor. Depending on the age and quality of your vehicle, most mechanics recommend an oil change every 3000 miles. At the very least it should happen twice a year. You can tell if you need an oil change service if the “Oil Change” light in your dashboard, if your engine sounds louder than usual, if there is a grinding sensation in the motor or if you are questioning when the last time it was that you had an oil change, you need one.
Lube services are another much needed aspect of responsible car ownership. Cars have many moving parts working closely together. If there isn’t enough lubrication, these parts can quickly wear down or create too much heat in the engine. Too much heat in the engine leads to overheating and breaking down. Engine lubricant helps to keep things like the steering system and suspension moving easily and efficiently. If you are not noticing any unusual noise or feeling in your engine, you can just take advice from your mechanic about when to refill your lube. When you go in for an oil change service, ask about your lubricant levels and have them done at the same time.
These kind of services are often bemoaned, “Ugh, I have to go get my oil changed again!” But in reality they are quick and very much needed in order to have a well-performing car.
