One of the most important vehicle maintenance services is an engine oil change. Motor oil usually wears out and becomes dirty over time. For this reason, it is important to perform scheduled oil changes to keep your car engine clean and avoid the negative effects of having contaminated oil. When the motor oil becomes less effective, elements such as moisture, exposure to the sun, air and corrosive wear can automatically degrade the oil through the oxidation process. The resulting effect is sludge build-up; oil thickening and corrosive wear of critical engine components.
The other important fact you need to know about the engine oil is: understanding the role of oil additives. When your oil additive is completely exhausted; the engine may no longer be in a position to handle dirt and common metals. This will in turn create sludge through oxidation. Problems arise when you skip oil change or exceed the set mileage, because this can hasten the rate of engine wear and tear, which can in turn lead to premature engine breakdown. Always remember, changing the engine oil eliminates contaminants and dirt, in addition to protecting your engine and increasing your vehicle’s performance. Make sure you use the right oil for your car to enhance engine performance.
Taking good care of your car and performing routine engine maintenance services will also save you time and money because the process of rebuilding and replacing the engine can be very costly. Some of the critical components that ensure smooth flow of oil through the engine include; oil pump, moving parts, oil pan and oil filter. The moving parts include main bearings and rod bearings, cylinder walls, valve train and piston rings. The oil filter, on the other hand, captures all the harmful dirt and debris such as metals and dirt’s that may be lurking in your oil. The oil pump is a very important component in engine lubrication because it creates the much needed pressure to push the oil throughout the engine.
