The Importance of Regular Oil Changes
Commercial vehicles spend a lot of time on the road, which means the many parts the make up your vehicle’s engine spend a lot of time in motion. This motion causes friction when the parts rub up against each other, which—in turn—produces heat. Oil is designed to lubricate your vehicle’s engine while also absorbing heat—allowing your commercial vehicle’s engine to perform without overheating.
Over time, engine oil will break down causing it to be less effective at protecting a vehicle’s engine from heat and friction. By replacing a vehicle’s oil as part of its routine maintenance, it is possible to protect the engine from overheating, as well as catastrophic damage that could result in substantial future repair bills.
What Are Some Additional Benefits of Changing Your Commercial Vehicle’s Engine Oil?
While regular oil changes are crucial for keeping commercial vehicles on the road, they also offer a number of additional potential benefits, including:
- Reducing costs associated with gasoline by increasing fuel efficiency
- Extending the life of the engine by removing impurities that often build up in and around the engine. This is especially true when commercial vehicles are driven in dusty conditions
- Improving the overall horsepower and engine performance the vehicle
- Minimizing harmful emissions by absorbing particles in the air—making vehicles more eco-friendly in the process
How Often Should the Engine Oil be Replaced in Commercial Vehicles?
This can vary depending on the age, make, and purpose of your vehicle, however, a good general rule to follow is every 5,000km or 3 months—whichever comes first.
