Why Should You Get an Oil Change?
Oil changes play a key role in keeping your vehicle’s engine running. This is because the engine in your vehicle has many moving parts. When your engine runs, its parts move and rub up against each other. This motion and force creates heat which—if not dealt with—can cause damage. Oil lubricates your engine and absorbs heat, ensuring that your engine’s internal parts work in harmony without overheating.
Unfortunately, over time, the oil in your engine will begin to break down—reducing its ability to lubricate engine parts and absorb heat. It’s important to change your engine oil before it breaks down and results in potentially catastrophic engine troubles.
Now That You Know Why, It’s Time to Figure Out When
In general, it’s recommended that you get the oil changed in your vehicle every 5,000 to 10,000 km or every four months. Adhering to this schedule will help you keep your vehicle in the best condition possible, while providing you with a little leeway to get your oil changed at a time that’s most convenient for you.
Combining Routine Spring Maintenance With Your Oil Change
Winter driving can be difficult on your vehicle. Low temperatures, salt, and heavy snowfall are just a few of the things that can impact its performance. That’s why once winter ends, it’s important to give your vehicle a fresh start to gear up for summer. When you stop into your local TIRECRAFT , we can schedule your vehicle for routine seasonal maintenance, which includes:
- Inspecting belts and hoses
