Preventing a problem is always much better and less demanding than finding the cure. With your car, the same principle applies. The simplest, least costly, and most efficient way to prolong the life of your car, and particularly the engine’s health, is to schedule regular oil and oil-filter changes.
Oil works primarily to lubricate the moving parts of your engine and prevent wear and tear. It is stored on the oil sump, at the bottom of the engine from where it is distributed to other engine parts. The circulating oil cleans the surfaces and helps to cool the engine before it collect’s back to the oil sump.
Fresh oil that is of high quality is essential to keeping your engine running optimally. Most people however, put off an oil change until they are well past the recommended 5000 mile mark. As a result, your engine is forced to work harder while it is being cooled with less lubrication. This is caused by oil and sludge buildup as the oil becomes dirty. Ultimately, your engine can suffer severe damage.
Rather than suffer the fate of a seized, or severely damaged engine, take some preventative measures and avoid costly repair bills. A simple oil change appointment with us is one such measure that will ensure your engine performs better, and longer.
For the continued health of your engine, it is advisable to have an oil change after every 5000 miles. With every appointment with us, your car will undergo our comprehensive multi-point courtesy check. Accordingly, we will take a look at the interior, exterior, underneath the car and give the tires a kick or two to ensure everything is in top shape.
We will provide you a written report of all our findings and advise on any areas that need attention and immediate action. Our courtesy check will include a complete check of the following:
