Oil Change Service
The internals of your engine is made up of metal components that are under extreme conditions. The components are moving parts; the moving parts can create friction which causes excess heat. This excess heat and friction will be sure to damage the internal components of your vehicle. All the moving components in the engine are designed to work optimally in certain operating parameters. These parameters range from operating temperature to the viscosity of the oil that is being used to lubricate everything. If there were no oil to lubricate metal on metal surfaces friction would merge those surfaces together result in seized components.
What Happens When I Change My Oil?
Not only is your engine shouting thank you, but it will be feeling a whole lot better after an oil change. If you’ve ever seen old oil come out of a car it is a dark black color compared to when it went into the engine as a golden liquid. Now a question to ask yourself is why has the oil become so dirty? As time goes on your engine will be taking in dirt and all sorts of debris. Not only does your oil lubricate the surfaces but it also plays the role of cleaning the internals of the engine. Running the engine with old oil would be like running it on dirty bathwater it needs to be changed out for fresh oil.
What Happens When I Prolong An Oil Change?
As time passes on between your oil changes the characteristics of the oil begin to change. It is no longer exactly the same oil that went in a long time ago. The oil that was designed to work effectively for your engine is not able to do the same amazing job it could many miles before. This job that your oil performs is not one to be taken lightly it is a very important job in fact. Now with inefficient oil in your engine, the moving components are not being provided the lubrication that they need in order to do their job causing more friction.
Why Does Less Oil Come Out Than What Goes In?
Most car owners are unaware of the fact that as you are driving along in your vehicle small amounts of oil is burned up during the operation of the engine. Generally, as your car gets older the seals on your pistons wear down with age and don’t provide as tight of a seal allowing more oil to be pushed up into the cylinder where it is burned up. Having regular oil changes prevents an extreme rate of wear and tear on the internal components of your engine. You can constantly monitor the amount of oil that is in your engine by inspecting the dipstick. Make sure that you check the stick before you start the motor or a few minutes after the more was running for accurate readings.
How Do I Benefit From An Oil Change?
As we have outlined when there is old oil in your engine it cannot perform the way it has been designed to, as more stress is being put on the internal components. With more stress being put on the internal components and not being able to move with minimal friction your engine ends up being less efficient. An engine that is running inefficiently costs you more dollars per mile, ask the fuel consumption increases. By draining out that old nasty oil and replacing it with fresh oil that looks like liquid gold is sure to clean your internals and provide an environment that all the moving parts were designed to operate in. This will increase the number of miles per gallon noticeably.
