Something as simple as an oil change may not seem critical to keeping your car running well, but neglecting your vehicles oil can cause some serious problems. Below is some information why you need to make sure you get an oil change at the manufacturer’s recommended intervals.
Topping off oil versus changing oil: If you check your vehicle’s dipstick and the oil level is low, then adding oil is only a temporary way to solve the problem for getting you back on the road. Don’t worry if you need to occasionally top off your oil, most cars will start to burn a little oil as they get older. If the issue persists stop into any Orozco’s Auto Service and we can check it out.
Changing the oil: Requires draining the engine of all the old oil that is most likely very dark in color due to dirt and debris and replacing it with fresh oil that is usually golden in color to a specified level indicated by the dipstick. You will also need to get a new oil filter, which will help to keep the fresh oil clean by collecting some of that dirt and debris that the oil captures on its way through your car’s engine. Your vehicle’s oil needs to be changed at the manufacturer’s recommendations or when it gets too dirty to accomplish its job of keeping your engine components moving smoothly. At Orozco’s Auto Service, we do all this and give your vehicle a full inspection along with checking and topping off all fluids that appear low which is part of our recommended maintenance plan.
Oil keeps it clean: If you look at the contents of a fresh bottle of oil, you’ll notice that it’s more of a golden amber color compared to the brown or black oil on your dipstick. That’s because it’s clean. As oil moves through your engine, it carries away dirt and grime that gradually turns the oil dark. Dark, dirty oil will not do a good job of lubricating or cleaning your engine. You should get your oil changed at the manufacturer’s recommended intervals to ensure that your engine remains clean and running smoothly. Luckily Bellflower isn’t particularly a dirty or dusty environment, but if you travel to that type of a climate you should get your oil (not to mention their air filters) changed more often.
Another reason oil changes are so important is because the primary function of your engine’s oil is keeping all the metal parts of your engine lubricated. This will prevent any metal-on-metal contact, which can cause damage to your engine that can be very costly to repair. The oils task is to keep thin layer of oil on key components which maintains them sliding smoothly and reduces friction that could otherwise damage your engine over time. The oil also reduces friction which in turn reduces heat buildup, which can also be a problem for your engine.
Finally, If you notice your oil change light lit on your dashboard, don’t ignore it. Your car most likely isn’t in any immediate danger of being damaged, but the light coming on is definitely not something to avoid. If it’s on, your oil needs attention. It may just be low and need to be topped off, but if it’s time for an oil change, be sure to stop by or make an appointment at Orozco’s Auto Service of Bellflower in the near future.
