The Function of Oil in the Engine
Engine oil serves vital purposes in the running of the internal combustion engine. First, it helps prevent carbon and varnishes from accumulating in the engine. Secondly, it helps keep engine components working smoothly together. Thirdly it helps draw heat away from the combustion chamber. The engine can be a hot place and when the oil draws heat away it keeps the engine as cool as possible so that it does not overheat. A lack of regular oil changes can have serious consequences. Over time, there can be buildup in the cooler parts of the engine, which can lead to carbon or sludge leaking out of the old oil. Ultimately this will cost you in engine cleaning and replacement engine parts. Consider regular oil changes a small insurance for keeping your engine running smoothly. So for your ease and convenience, get your oil changed at PG Motors.
When to Change Your Oil
The prevailing opinion is that oil changes need to be done approximately every three months or 5,000 kms. There are factors that can speed up or slow down the time. For example, vehicles in hot, dry, dusty environments need to have their oil changed more often than those in cold, wet environments, and often more frequently than every 5,000 kms. Driving habits can also have an effect on the oil. If a vehicle is not being driven very often, or only for short distances, the oil will not need to be changed every three months. Experts say to trust the odometer and the vehicle manual for oil changes. Once you see that 5,000 kms have passed, consider taking your vehicle in for an oil change.
