Understanding Oil

If there's one service that you certainly don't want to skip, it's your oil change. Your engine is likely the most expensive part of your model, but it'll be rendered useless without oil coursing through it. Oil is responsible for lubricating all of the tiny metal parts in your engine so that they don't mash together when you start moving. It also works as a safeguard against high temperatures alongside your coolant system, so that your entire engine block can keep running smoothly. Its role is an absolutely vital one, and if you start to run low, you might eventually have your engine break down on you. This is not only incredibly inconvenient, but it also might be irreparable depending on what was damaged. When metal experiences high friction, it'll immediately start wearing down, and adding heat into the mix can make for an unsolvable problem.

Noticing The Signs

Luckily, there are multiple ways in which you can keep track of your oil, with the most convenient being a service sticker. If you've received service in the past, there's a good chance that they left a sticker specifying either the mileage or date for when you'll need your next oil change. If you don't have this, you can always rely on your trusty dipstick. With this tool, you'll be able to take a look at the current state of your oil whenever you please. If you notice that it's dark, sludge-like, or low, you're going to want to schedule an immediate service. You're also going to want to be on the lookout for any oil leaks, grinding or tapping noises, and especially overheating. Your vehicle is expensive, so when you feel that it might be experiencing any sort of trouble, you're going to want to schedule an immediate service.

The Benefits Of Regular Oil Changes

The motor oil in your vehicle's engine provides an essential service. It lubricates and protects all of the moving components from excessive wear and tear due to heat and friction. If there is no oil in the engine or it is old and dirty, the engine parts will grind against each other and eventually seize it. And you will be facing a very costly replacement as compared to an affordable oil change that would have prevented your several thousand dollar repair bill.

In addition to the primary function of lubrication, engine oil has added detergent to reduce harmful sludge and build up in the engine. This thick substance reduces the engine's efficiency and can result in excessive compression that will rupture seals and gaskets. Finally, motor oil removes potentially harmful tiny metal shavings and other particles inside the motor. The viscous oil snares the particles and carries them to the oil filter, to be removed from the circulating oil.
