The Importance of Oil Changes

Your oil is one of the most important aspects of your vehicle. Not only does it help lubricate your engine -- lowering friction and reducing heat in your engine -- it also ensures that your vehicle runs smoothly on the road. It is therefore important to ensure that you are consistently changing your oil at the necessary intervals (which you can find in your owner's manual).

Our service team is here to assist you when you need an oil change. But why are oil changes important? And how do they affect your vehicle?

Why We Change Our Oil

There are a few important reasons why we change our car's oil.

As we mentioned before, your oil helps lubricate your engine. When your engine is not properly lubricated it can overheat due to the friction. Dirty oil is also clogged with dirt, grime, and sludge -- all of which lowers the efficiency of your vehicle. Furthermore, dirty oil and high amounts of heat and friction can irrevocably damage your engine, and your vehicle.

So What Benefits Do Oil Changes Provide?

On top of taking care of all of the issues dirty oil can cause -- from helping keep your engine lubricated to changing out the grimy, sludgy oil for clean, fresh oil -- changing your oil also helps enhance your vehicle's fuel efficiency and helps promote your vehicle's overall longevity.
