Get Your Oil Changed At Our Gower Service Center
Your vehicle’s engine is an amazingly complicated machine. It has hundreds of parts working together and when the rub against each other it creates friction. The most damaging factor of friction is the massive amount of heat it produced, which can ruin your engine. That’s why oil is such a major factor to a running engine. Oil has two jobs in an engine, to lubricate the engine and cool parts as it circulates.
If your engine were to run out of oil, the moving parts would create so much heat the engine would seize up. This can happen in a matter of minutes after running out of oil. Once your engine locks up there is no way to undo the damage, instead you’re shopping for a new engine. With this in mind we can all agree that oil is a very big factor in a working engine. Running out of oil isn’t the only problem you may encounter, using the wrong oil or using oil for a long period of time my greatly reduce its effectiveness. Debris including dust, particles and dirt can work their way into your engine and your oil. Most oils contain additives to help clean the engine and prevent rust. Changing your oil regularly ensures you have clean oil designed to keep your engine in top working order.
Regular maintenance tasks, like oil changes, are the best ways to keep your engine running well. Refer your owner’s manual for the recommended miles between oil changes. It’s now common that late model vehicles surpass the 3,000 miles standby, sometimes as long at 7,000 miles in-between.
