How Oil Changes Help You and Your Car

Why_Oil_Changes matter to the efficiency and reliability of your car.

Oil has been referred to as the life blood of your car.  Your vehicle efficiency depends on clean oil, which helps you save on gas (you get better mileage).  Clean oil helps your engine last longer and minimizes opportunity for a breakdown.

Your automobiles oil has three enemies.                    

1. Dirt 
2. Combustion by-products
3. Chemical reactions

The mechanics of your engine uses pistons moving up and down to generate power.  The mechanical movement means you will have wear and tear.  During wear and tear microscopic bits chip off due to friction.   

When the gasoline that fuels your engine burns, it creates an ash like by-product, The by-product is moved thru the engine with the oil. Ask Aaron about the use of fuels that reduce the by-product.

Oil itself is changed at a molecular level with each heating and cooling cycle.  The oil will start to degrade and turn black.

When you get an oil change you need to also change the oil filter.  Your oil filter will catch these particles.  Some particles are too tiny and evade the system.  Clean oil and a clean filter will keep your automobile running longer and use less gas. That is good for the environment.

Your car is an extension of your life.  It carries you, your family and your friends, safely, to many different places.  Your automobile is a complex system of mechanics, hydraulics and electronics, that we count on to get us where we need to go reliably and efficiently.
