Why Oil Changes are Important
Regular oil changes not only maximize your car’s performance and extend its lifespan. They’re important for your safety. Oil acts as lubrication and:
Heat causes oil to break down, causing it to lose its lubricating ability. This disrupts components that need oil to run smoothly. Not only can malfunctioning components cause more complex, expensive, and time-consuming repairs down the road, you want your vehicle to operate smoothly so you, your passengers, and other road users stay safe.
When to Change Your Oil
According to experts, you should change your oil every three months or every 4,000-8,000 km.
A quick way to know if you need an oil change is by looking at its colour. Run the car for a few minutes, shut it off, and then pull out your oil dipstick. If it’s light like tea, the oil is still in fair condition. If it’s dark like coffee, it’s time for an oil change!
Do I Really Need an Expert?
Some folks are confident doing oil changes on their own. Others do not have the proper equipment or training to do so. You should also prioritize your safety, as working on vehicles can be dangerous if you’re unfamiliar with the machinery. We recommend hiring an expert not only for safety reasons, but for efficiency and success.
