Your oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle. It helps clean and lubricate the moving components of your engine. Without the oil in your engine there would be a lot of metal to metal contact which creates friction and heat. Heat can be your vehicle’s worst nightmare as it can cause components in your engine to falter or fail prematurely. Your engine oil works by circulating throughout your engine collecting debris and contaminants that can cause problems in your engine, let us inspect your oil and we can get idea of what condition your vehicle is in.

A good practice is to check your oil dipstick every other time you fill up at the gas station. Check it for grittiness which can indicate that your oil filter might be saturated which means that your oil cannot perform its duty when it comes to cleaning your engine.

Your oil works in conjunction with your oil filter. When your oil filter become full of contaminants and can no longer retain the contaminants that your oil collects, it is time to change your oil and oil filter. Your oil can also give indications of other issues when it comes to your vehicle. If your oil is discolored it can mean that water is getting into your oil lines making your oil less effective.

Or if you smell burning oil that can also indicate another possible issue with your vehicle but in most cases you will simply need to change your oil based on your manufacturer’s suggestions. This is, hands down, the most effective and efficient way to maintain your vehicle and keep it operating at its peak level of performance.

Oil changes can also become necessary after long drives so it is best to get your vehicle inspected before and after family driving vacations or weekend excursions. So if it’s been awhile since you’ve had your oil changed or inspected it might be time to bring your vehicle to our expert technicians. Feel free to give us a call, drive on into our shop or schedule an appointment online for a day and time that works best for you!
