Protect your engine with routine oil change service at Jeff’s Auto Repair in Renton, WA. Regular oil change service is the best way to safeguard your engine and keep your vehicle excellent condition. The question now is, how often to get them? The old standard interval was every 3,000 miles or three months. After much advancement in types of oil and additives that are added, some cars have service intervals of 5,000, 7,000, or 10,000 miles. It depends on your specific car make, model, and year. If your car requires conventional oil, you may switch to synthetic for better performance and increased effectiveness. However, if you switch to synthetic oil you must continue to use synthetic. Never use conventional oil after switching to synthetic or it could damage your engine. Newer cars are likely to have longer service intervals. If you don’t know your car’s maintenance interval or type of oil necessary, come to our 505 Park Avenue N location or call (425) 226-5056 and one of our specialists will help you.
What is Oil & What Happens if you Forget to Have it Changed?
Oil is vital to your engine and it’s ability to function. Without it, your engine would seize and not operate. It provides lubrication, draws heat away from components, and suspends dirt, particles, and metal shavings within to reduce damage to internal moving parts. Finally, additives act as detergents and help clean and reduce buildup that occurs from normal wear and usage. If you stop or fail to change your oil, a few things can happen. If left unchanged for a long time, it becomes less viscous and cannot provide lubrication properly. The suspended materials will build, gather, and leave deposits in the cooler areas of an engine. It will eventually break down and cannot reduce heat, lubricate, or function properly. If this happens, engine failure is possible. While this sounds extreme, it is easy to understand why an oil change can be so crucial.
