At Auto Repair Technology Inc, we firmly believe that changing your oil is a necessity, not a luxury. Your car needs oil to survive. You wouldn’t deny your child food, so why deprive your car’s engine of oil?
If you rely on your vehicle to get you where you need to go, then neglecting to get your oil changed is a bad move. At Auto Repair Technology Inc, we make oil changes easy. You can schedule an appointment in advance to have your car worked on, or you can simply come in at your convenience and wait while we tend to your vehicle. Our team works quickly and efficiently so that you can get back on the road as soon as possible; and our affordable rates make getting your car’s oil changed all the more worthwhile.
Check the owner’s manual to see if your driving habits are considered to be “severe service.” This type of driving may require more frequent oil changes.. Have the oil changed accordingly, usually every 3-5,000 miles. For less wear and tear on the engine, drivers in cold climates (sub-zero driving temperatures) should drop their oil weight from 10-W30 to 5-W30.
Your oil filter sifts out contaminants, allowing the oil to flow through the engine unrestricted. Should the oil filter become restricted or clogged with contaminants, they will flow around the filter. This bypassing is a safety mechanism, but you never want to let oil filter changes go so long that bypassing takes place.
The typical oil filter consists of a high-strength steel housing containing various types of filtering media. An anti-drainback valve prevents oil from running out of the filter when the engine is off. Today’s oil filters have a convenient spin-on design that makes removal and installation easy.
While you may be tempted to try and save a few bucks by putting your oil change off, you’re only costing yourself more money in the long run. You need your oil changed regularly, and you need it done correctly.
If you need any help with your oil change, or if you have any auto-maintenance questions at all, just give us a call. Allow our Brook Park, OH auto-maintenance specialists give your car the proper care it deserves.
