What Can Go Wrong
By performing a simple oil change today can save you thousand of dollars tomorrow. When the engine oil has been use for a period of time, the oil will become old and dirty and the additives in the oil will not perform at its peak. Used oil will also deteriorate your engine’s moving part as there will be increased in friction and chemical buildup. If the engine parts deteriorate too much, they will need to be replaced. Your vehicle engine will benefit from a simple oil change as the fresh oil contains additives that help cool and lubricate the engine. Ultimately, an engine that isn’t properly lubricated can seize up due to friction and heat, thus causing heavy repair charges.
Recommended Maintenance – Keep An Eye On Your Oil
As a good rule of thumb, it is recommended to have your oil and filter changed every 3 months or 5,000 KM (whichever comes first). By doing so, you will keep your oil clean and your engine healthy.
You can also check the condition of the engine oil when you are filling up petrol at the petrol station. Just check the oil level with the dipstick, and also take note of the color of the oil. Brand new oil will have a light amber appearance and are usually relatively clear. After a few minutes of use, however, it may become much darker.
Check your oil for :
• A milky appearance
• A strong smell of gasoline
• Bubbles or foam
These signs could mean you have water or fuel contamination or your oil level could be too high. Take your car to Tyrezone right away.
