Are oil changes just a way for companies to make money? Many people wonder about this. Believe it or not, oil changes are one of the single most critical services to have performed on your car. Having your oil replaced regularly can prevent costly repairs from catching up with you in the future.
Why are oil changes so important? Here are just a few reasons:
Challenging driving conditions. While you may think that a quick run up to the store in Brunswick wouldn’t be a challenge for your vehicle, that’s just not true. A quick trip doesn’t give your oil time to heat up enough to warm up enough to adequately lubricate your engine. This is especially true if you haven’t had it changed in a while.
Dirty oil is a problem. Today’s gas formulations have chemical cleansers in them that are designed to remove contaminants and debris. If your oil is dirty, that exposes the sensitive parts to even more contaminants.
Oil can break down. Over time, the components of oil can break down, preventing the oil from doing the job it needs to do. When you change the oil in your car, you help to lubricate pistons and cylinders and protect them from heat and friction.
Every 3000 miles. While there are many opinions on how often the oil should be changed, our experts at the Brunswick Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center believe that every 3000 miles is a good benchmark for oil changes or as recommended by your car’s manufacturer.
Quick, affordable and helpful, oil changes can really prolong the life of your car and optimize your performance. Ready to have your oil changed? Call the Brunswick Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center for a convenient appointment.Schedule Service Here
