Engine oil is what lubricates a car’s engine, allowing it to run smoothly and last longer. Car owners must maintain a car’s engine by changing the oil and using the oil appropriate for their cars make and model. Every car comes with a “check oil” light and an oil filter under the hood. These components allow car owners to monitor their oil levels and add oil as needed without having to hire a mechanic.
Changing the Oil
An important part of routine car maintenance is changing the oil regularly. The necessary frequency of oil changes has become a point of contention among experts. The Engine Oil Bible maintains that engine oil can’t be changed often enough, but Nordic Group insists that, with the advent of detergent oils and multi-weight oils, some vehicles can go as far as 6,000 miles before needing an oil change. The best course of action is to check the owner’s manual and follow manufacturer’s recommendations.
Mike’s Tire and Automotive offers top quality oil changes and auto repair services in Gloucester County that are affordable and may be performed quickly.
It is recommended that oil changes occur every 3,000 – 5,000 miles to stop engine wear and keep oil free from particles; for your car’s particular mileage always consult your owners handbook or ask one of our professionals.
Gloucester County Oil Changes & Oil Filter Replacements
What they do: Your vehicle counts on new oil and oil filters to keep it operating efficiently. Oil should be kept full, clean from particles and not burnt. Oil lubes crucial engine parts. Moving components create rubbing, and over time that heat wears the parts down. Oil or a synthetic lubricating substance can minimize the damage from the rubbing by those moving components. By performing a regular oil change schedule you will effectively increase your engine’s efficiency as well as maintain the life of your car’s engine.
