Car Oil Change

Oil Change

One of the simplest yet most crucial maintenance tasks you can perform for your vehicle is a regular oil change. Despite its simplicity, it plays a significant role in ensuring your engine runs smoothly and efficiently. Oil changes are necessary and recommended for a reason. 

Why Are Oil Changes Important?

Engine oil serves several critical functions in your vehicle’s engine:

  1. Lubrication: Reduces friction between moving parts, preventing wear and tear.
  2. Cooling: Helps dissipate heat away from the engine.
  3. Cleaning: Carries away dirt, debris, and microscopic metal particles.
  4. Sealing: Create a seal between the pistons, rings, and cylinder walls.

Neglecting regular oil changes can lead to increased engine wear, reduced performance, and ultimately, costly repairs.

Oil and filter changes help remove build-up and keep your engine running at peak performance – not only will frequent oil changes help the life of your engine, but they will also improve gas mileage. New oil leads to better performance and healthier parts. Getting a car oil change is one of the most beneficial & preventative maintenance services you can do.

How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

A good guideline is:

  • Every 5000 km if you use conventional oil
  • Every 10,000 km if you use synthetic oil

Consider the various factors that influence the required interval and determine whether you need a full conventional or full synthetic oil change. From what type of vehicle you drive, the age of your car, motor oils you have used, the driving conditions(high temperature, Edmonton winters, pulling a trailer, stop-and-go traffic), etc.  

If you don’t drive your vehicle a lot – the recommended oil change interval is to get a car oil change at least once or twice a year as moisture accumulates in your engine and oil becomes less effective as it ages.

It is a good idea to check your owner’s manual on a new vehicle to keep up with the recommended maintenance. If you are unsure perform a quick check on your engine’s oil. When you do a visual inspection and see the oil getting thicker and darker, it is time for an engine oil change!
