Trust your car to a professional on this critical service! We really do offer the best service under the Sun.
Why should you change your oil?
Oil undergoes thermal breakdown due to high operating temperature. When this occurs, the oil becomes less effective as a lubricant. And without a good lubricant, parts of the engine rub together and wear each other out.
Oil also contains additives that have the ability to neutralize acids. Over time, these additives get used up and stop being effective in protecting your engine.
Finally, oil can absorb water, dust and combustion byproducts and also hold them in suspension. Eventually, the oil gets saturated with this material and is unable to absorb any more. Then that substance remains in the engine and can cause corrosion.
Many people are using “quick lube” facilities to perform this important service. Most “quick lube” type facilities train their employees to change oil but have very little, if any other automotive experience. Risky?
It is critical to use the proper oil, viscosity and oil filter, especially in newer vehicles.
