Having the vehicle maintained and inspected is important for the longevity of it. Also, having the oil changed on a regular basis is just as important for the vehicle. With an oil change, we can remove the old oil that is full of dirt and pollutants. As it ages, it gets thicker. This makes it more difficult to lubricate the engine properly as you drive. When oil does not lubricate the engine and gears, then they will start to wear against one another. This adds to extra strain as well. After the old oil is removed, fresh clean oil is then added into the reservoir. The oil will lubricate it so all the parts operate without issues.
Odd Noises and Oil
If you notice any odd noises or sounds coming from the vehicle, always make sure to contact us. These sounds will indicate that could be an issue, even an issue that might be severe. Any grinding, screeching, or high pitched noise that comes from under the hood should be checked as soon as possible. This will help to be aware of an issue before it becomes worse. If the problem becomes louder and more frequent, it could mean that a part of the vehicle is in need of repair as soon as possible.
It is also important to have extra oil in your vehicle. This could be in the trunk or back seat. If you are low on oil in a place where you are unable to buy some, it can be an issue. By being prepared, you will be able to fill up the oil reservoir when it is low on oil, no matter where you are. You should also check for oil leaks under your vehicle where you are parked. If you see oil on the ground, make sure to bring the vehicle in so we can repair the leak for you.
