Why do I have to change my oil?

Oil lubricates the moving parts of your engine. It keeps them cool by lowering friction and carrying the heat away. It also keeps any grit or tiny particles from scratching tightly-fitted parts.

Heat breaks down oil and in this Florida weather it can happen faster than you are thinking. It can make the oil gummy or watery or possibly even both, so that it doesn’t lubricate properly. The longer it’s in the engine, the dirtier it gets. This could lead to bigger problems down the line causing the engine to overheat or fail.

Replacing old oil with new fixes all these problems and is even a preventative measure to stop other problems from happening. Think of it like taking a daily vitamin. You aren’t sick now, but you are insuring the possibility of being sick at all.

The fresh oil lubricates and cools. Once we flush the old oil out, we will also flush away any grit or dirt that has been collecting in it.

Getting your oil changed regularly is probably the single best thing you can do for your engine. To reduce the cost of major repairs and improve overall performance, follow your manufacturer’s oil change recommendations listed in the owner’s manual of your car. If you aren’t sure you can always call us and we will be happy to give you helpful information. Either our Royal Palm Beach, Florida store 561-753-6122 or our Wellington, Florida store 561-753-6101.
