Oil Change Service

Why Change Oil?

As your engine runs, it uses the oil to lubricate its moving parts and remove excess heat from the engines block. Oil is subjected to extreme high temperatures, splashing, turbulence, and thermal shocks (Oil goes from high operating temperatures while engine is running, to cooling down when engine is shut off). Also considering today’s fast pace we do not let a cold engine warm up before we take off.

Due to the above conditions and cycles, certain chemical changes take place and the oil begins to break down and even turn acidic. It also loses its viscosity which is very important for a good lubrication between the engines moving parts. Lower viscosity means higher wear of the engines moving parts. Changing the oil brings back the proper viscosity recommended for your engine and the climate it will be operating in. For example: 5W30 10W30 20W40 and so on. An oil recommended for a cold climate could seize the engine if use by a vehicle owner in a warm climate.

The oil also removes particulate matter from the engine. If left in the engine too long it will eventually become thick with grime and burnt particles called sludge.

Oil change intervals are set so that you replace the oil when it is beginning to fail, not after it has failed.
