Getting a regular oil change can seem like just another something to add to your to-do list.
In fact, when you visit your Garfield Heights Rad Air location to have the oil drained and replaced, you are providing an important service to your car – one that can keep you on the road and driving without incident for years.
We are much harder on our cars then we think we are. All of the city driving in Garfield Heights, the stopping for lights, the quick drive to the high school on Turney Road or just running up to the grocery store can cause wear and tear on your car. Though you might think those short trips are easier on your car, they aren’t. Since your car never has a chance to warm up properly, lubrication can be an issue. Driving your car with dirty oil can do an enormous amount of damage to your car. Dirt and other contaminants get in the oil and can cause build up in your engine’s deepest mechanicals. This is the reason that having your oil changed on a regular basis can help prolong the life of your car.
The first place to start is to take a look at your owner’s manual to see how often they recommend changing your oil. Most automobile manufacturers recommend having a car care center replace your oil every 3000 miles. During that time, the mechanics at Rad Air in Garfield Heights will drain the oil, check for oil leaks and refill all of your fluids. Once clean oil is replaced in your engine, any chance for contaminants to damage your engine has been removed.
Getting an oil change takes just a few minutes and can be an affordable way to keep your car on the road. Stop in at the Garfield Heights Rad Air and we’ll be happy to check your oil levels and let you know if you are ready for a new batch of oil in your car. Call today!Schedule Service Here
