Only People who Drive Long Distances Need an Oil Change
Don’t drive long distances? You likely need your oil changed more than a person who drives longer distances regularly. That may be the opposite of what you expect, but it’s true. Richard Russell of the Globe and Mail explains:
“... the oil in an engine acts not only as a lubricant, but as a cooling agent and a method of pulling nasty minute and possibly damaging particles caused by wear into the filter and boiling off harmful chemicals caused by combustion. Those particles or chemicals might remain in the oil of a lightly used engine. As well, oils and other fluids can break down over a period of time, losing their effectiveness.”
Any Ole’ Garage can Handle an Oil Change
Changing the oil is the easy part. Real pros use only quality oil and filters, but more importantly, they do a lot more than simply change your oil. According to John Costanza from The Car Connection:
“...don’t underestimate the value of having a trained individual under the hood of your car. They will be able to spot a number of trouble situations that, if left untreated, have the potential to cause a breakdown. They should be looking for fluid leakage, cracked or frayed belts, bulging hoses and safety items including torn wiper blades, burned out lights, and unsafe tires. The success of this approach only works if you have found a shop that distinguishes true customer need from sales effort.”
Five per cent of accidents are due to poor vehicle maintenance. Regular maintenance helps ensure your vehicle is in top working order.
Prolonged Vehicle Life
Oil prevents wear and friction between the various moving parts in your engine. As older oil breaks down, it isn’t as effective at doing its job which can mean wear and stress on your engine; over time, this can take have a negative effect on your vehicle’s performance and engine life.
Better Fuel Efficiency
New oil allows your engine parts to move freely which means your vehicle doesn’t have to work as hard. As engine oil breaks down, your engine must work harder, needing to use more fuel to get the performance you expect from your vehicle.
