Why A Oil Change Service Is Required
Regularly changing a car’s engine oil is necessary to ensure proper engine function as well as to ensure that a vehicle engine lasts for as long as possible. Oil changes remove old, dirty engine oil and replace it with clean, fresh engine oil. What follows is a brief list outlining the main reasons to change a car’s engine oil.
Changing a vehicle’s engine oil on a regular basis ensures proper engine oil lubrication.
Regulation of Engine Operating Temperature
Changing a vehicle’s engine oil helps to regulate engine operating temperatures by replacing old, worn-out engine oil that cannot effectively absorb engine heat, with new, high-quality engine oil that effectively absorbs engine heat and helps to regulate engine operating temperatures.
Removal of Engine Wear Particles
As a vehicle engine operates, microscopic engine wear particles are created that get picked up by the engine oil and transported to the oil filter. Changing a vehicle’s engine oil ensures that engine wear particles are removed. Fresh oil is better able to absorb and transport engine wear particulate.
Removal of Engine Sludge
Engine sludge–a combination of degraded engine oil, engine wear particles and dirt–can be highly damaging to an engine. Changing the oil removes engine sludge and helps maintain peak engine operating efficiency.
Reducing Engine Friction
Due to the constant motion of an engine’s internal parts, engine friction is created, which increases engine operating temperature and reduces engine life span. Clean, high-quality engine oil is better able to reduce engine friction and absorb engine heat.
