Why is an oil and filter change important?

We sometimes forget what an amazing job engine oil does, enabling engine parts to move over one another with very little friction. These days, you can also expect oil for cars to have a host of other high-tech properties, providing benefits such as cleaning and protection from deposits.

It is very tempting to just forget about engine oil and assume that it will continue doing all those good things. However, oil does not last forever, and if it is not replaced from time to time – along with the filter that helps to keep it in good condition – it will simply stop doing its job. The result will be friction damage to moving parts, increased corrosion and build-up of contamination within the engine, which will detract from performance.

So, let us take care of this regular service requirement for you. We will use the optimum type of oil for your vehicle and replace the filter with a high-quality product. Importantly, we will also dispose of the old oil in an environmentally responsible manner.

Filter replacement

Motor oil is impressive, but it can’t do its job alone. Your engine’s oil filter plays a crucial role in filtering out foreign particles. Tiny particles are constantly generated through wear and deposits, and they can also enter from the outside if an oil change is done carelessly. If left unchecked, these particles can cause significant damage.

The filter is designed to catch these particles, but it will eventually become clogged and cause issues. In case of severe clogging, your engine has a valve that opens to let oil flow through. While this prevents immediate engine seizing, it releases a flood of damaging particles into the engine’s sensitive areas. Avoiding this stage is crucial.

It’s essential to understand that there’s a huge difference in performance between generic filters and those meeting car manufacturers’ standards. That’s why at (workshop name), we always use filters that meet these standards. Your engine deserves the best care and protection possible.

When to perform an oil and filter change?

Many vehicle owners tend to delay getting an oil and filter change for too long. They may occasionally glance at their oil checker without really understanding it or assume everything’s fine because no oil warning light is on. However, non-professionals can’t accurately assess oil levels, and if a warning light appears, it likely means major damage has already occurred. So, how can you tell when it’s time for an oil and filter change?

In an ideal world, you’d refer to your vehicle’s manufacturer requirements (usually a mileage figure) and compare it with your actual mileage since the last change. But in reality, many of us have incomplete maintenance records, making it hard to determine the last change and mileage. As a rough guideline, it’s advisable to have it done at least once a year, or more frequently for intensive driving.

To ensure more reliable oil and filter changes, the best approach is to request one from us right away and keep the documentation we provide. It will detail the work done and the vehicle’s mileage. This information will not only help you determine the next change date but also enhance the resale value of your vehicle. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us for a dependable oil and filter change service.
