Your engine requires constant lubrication to run efficiently and reliably. To keep all the parts moving inside, keeping the engine oil clean is of utmost importance. For all vehicles with an internal combustion engine, oil change services are scheduled at regular intervals to prevent unexpected, annoying, and expensive breakdowns.
At America’s Auto Care & Tire, we perform routine maintenance that keeps your car, truck, SUV, or minivan running at its best. Through friendly service, dependable parts and fluids, and expert mechanics, your engine can stand the test of time.
It’s widely understood that engine oil lubricates the moving components inside your car’s engine. Contrary to popular belief, engine oil performs many roles in addition to lubrication. It also washes away sludge deposits that form on internal components and creates a barrier between moving parts to reduce friction. It seals the combustion chamber and prevents corrosion in the crankcase and metal parts. On top of those functions, engine oil also performs as much as 40% of your engine’s cooling!
Clearly, it’s important to keep your engine oil clean and uncontaminated.
Once it’s exposed to heat, friction, and moisture, engine oil begins to break down. It also captures particles and can absorb moisture, reducing its ability to properly perform its tasks.
Old, dirty engine oil can lead to advanced sludge deposits that obstruct oil flow to critical components and it can increase your engine’s operating temperature. Over time, poor oil condition can cause excessive wear or engine failure.
An engine oil change should be completed regularly according to your factory scheduled maintenance, or when the oil condition requires it.
Your vehicle owner’s manual will indicate which grade of engine oil to use. For most modern vehicles, a synthetic blend oil is the minimum requirement to ensure reliable operation. For high-performance or turbocharged engines, full synthetic oil may be required to keep your car working as it should.
Whether your owner’s manual recommends conventional engine oil, full synthetic motor oil, or a synthetic blend, it’s crucial to always protect your engine with the minimum grade or better.
