An oil change may seem like a trivial thing but if you wish to make your engine run smoothly and last longer it must be carried out every 5000 miles.
Oil change is vital as oil undergoes thermal breakdown at a high temperature and consequently becomes ineffective as a lubricant and may result in parts of the engine rubbing together and wearing out. The additives which are found in oil play the part of neutralizing acids and if the oil is not changed they stop doing so. Oil can absorb water, dust and combustion by products and become saturated with this mass and cause corrosion. Thus, this oil serves many crucial functions, and clean oil performs those functions better than dirty oil.
Mission Car Care, Katy, Texas encourages its customers to keep their eyes open for the “check oil” light in every car and the oil filler under the hood to monitor oil levels.
An oil change is something which you yourself can do with ease and involves draining out the old motor oil and replacing it with fresh, new motor oil. We suggest that you check the oil level every few hundred miles by parking your car on a level surface and removing the oil dipstick.
