Protect Your Engine with Regular Oil Changes
The engine in your vehicle can be damaged before you realize it’s happening. If the oil in the engine gets dirty or the oil filter gets clogged, metal parts begin to grind against each other. This results in wearing down of the parts and it happens out of sight. By the time you hear “metal against metal” sounds coming from under the hood, damage has been done.
A schedule of regular oil changes can help avoid engine seizure due to lack of oil and protect your engine. Experts in the industry recommend oil changes every 3,000 miles or every three months.
Your driving habits and the area you live in can also affect your oil change frequency. Let our technicians help determine an oil change schedule that is best for you and your car.
Here’s how an oil change protects your engine:
- Contaminants, like dirt and debris, are cleared out.
- It redistributes and absorbs excess heat buildup.
- It protects the engine from rust and corrosion.
- It provides a layer of oil over all parts of the engine.
Another important factor to an oil change is the type of oil that is correct for your car. Our oil change specialists will discuss this with you, based on the age of your car or truck and how the vehicle is driven.
Today’s cars are being driven longer than ever and this can affect the type of oil used; a vehicle with more than 75,000 miles on it is protected even longer if it uses a high-mileage blend of synthetic and conventional oil.
No matter what type of oil is used, a Valvoline oil change in Leander at Lamb’s Tire & Auto gives your car the best protection available.
