What are Engine oil and filter change services?

Engine oil and filter change services are conducted by completely draining your engine of oil and refiling and fitting a brand-new oil filter in your vehicle. Engine oil lubricates the parts of your vehicle’s engine and helps them to work efficiently during combustion.

Without changing your engine oil in a timely manner, the metal components in your engine would begin to rub together, causing irreversible damage to the engine. The oil filter can become blocked by all this debris, and this blockage reduces the amount of oil that can pass through, causing severe damage to your engine. If left for too long, your vehicle can sustain major engine damage leading a car that is no longer drivable.

During an oil and filter change service, firstly the drain plug has been removed, and oil is drained. After the oil filter is removed, both the drain plug and the oil filter are replaced. Lastly, the correct oil is refilled to the correct levels.
