An auto oil change is required when you reach a certain mileage. Usually, it's every 3,000 miles but this milestone differs depending on manufacturer's recommendation, driving conditions and how you drive your car. Regardless, oil changes are necessary in keeping your car running smoothly and in extending its life. Below are a few reason why an oil filter and oil change are necessary:

  • Proper Engine Oil Lubrication - Your vehicle is composed of many moving parts. They need proper lubrication to smoothly run and prevent friction. Friction will produce heat that can wear down engine parts. It is necessary to keep the engine filled with the right grade of clean oil at the recommended level.
  • Removes Dirt and Debris - Engine oil gradually harbors particles which turns to sludge overtime. This can cause clogging and decay of the engine components. In order to maintain your car's engine condition, it requires a clean oil and filter.
  • Increases Gas Efficiency - When your car has poor lubrication, it tends to consume more fuel. However, if you have consistent oil changes you can save as much as a gallon of gas in a year.
  • Extends Vehicle's Life Span - Your engine tends to work double time when its components are not efficiently running. It can cause wear which can develop into major car issues that can decrease its lifespan.

If you care for your car, bring it to a certified mechanic for an oil change based on the recommended mileage stated in your car's manual. Contact Reliable Transmission Service if you are looking for the right team to properly change your engine oil.
