In our fast-paced society that relies heavily on our cars to take us from A to B it’s easy to ignore the vital maintenance tasks that keep our vehicles operating smoothly.

Why Are Oil Changes So Important?
Imagine the engine of your car as a heart pumping vitality into the car’s many components. Think of motor oil in terms of the blood that keeps the heart in good health and functioning. Here’s a reason why oil changes on a regular basis are crucial:
Lubrication: Motor oils lubricate the moving parts of the engine which reduces heat and friction. This helps reduce damage and wear, making sure that your engine operates smoothly and efficiently.
Cooling: Oil is also helpful in dispersing heat produced in the engine’s operation. Without adequate cooling your engine could overheat, causing serious harm.
Cleaning In time: the motor oil may collect dirt and other pollutants. Regular oil change routinely removes these impurities, and stops accumulation of sludge, which can damage the engine.
Lubrication of Seals: This is used to maintain seals and gaskets in good order by preventing leaks, and ensuring the integrity of your engine.
Energy Efficiency: A properly lubricated engine will run more efficiently and results in improved performance and less emissions.
