Getting an oil change is one of the most important and easiest things you can do for your vehicle. This simple procedure can save you a lot of frustration and money spent on engine repairs later down the road. At Cookeville Tire & Auto in Cookeville, TN, we are dedicated to customer satisfaction and building a life long relationship with our customers and that starts with your regular oil changes.
Engine oil seems like a simple substance, but it actually has an incredibly important job. Your engine is made up of several moving parts. When these components are in motion and working together it causes friction That friction causes an increase in temperature and an acceleration in wear and tear. Your oil combats that friction by lubricating your engine’s components.
Unfortunately, over time that oil breaks down. When this happens, nit does the opposite of what it was designed to do. Old and dirty oil leaves grime and build up on your components as it flows through and will actually increase the friction. The easiest way to keep this from happening is to change your oil before it breaks down.
Oil Change Frequency
Every 3 months or 3,000 miles. You have probably heard that guideline before, right? It’s a good rule of thumb. But your oil change frequency actually depends on various factors including the age, make, and model of your car as well as your driving habits. Some vehicles are able to go longer between oil changes and others need to change theirs more frequently.
