Oil Change Myths Debunked

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."

The Brand of oil Doesn't Matter

There is an endless selection of motor oils available, but they are not all created equal. Quality oils have additives to help viscosity and prevent sludge build-up in the engine. Many will also have retardants added to limit corrosion. Make sure you have quality oil in your vehicle.
