Oil Change

Is it Time for Your Next Oil Change?

Most vehicle owners know that routine maintenance is essential. By investing a little bit in the continuous upkeep of your car, you can keep it performing at peak condition while also extending the lifespan of your vehicle. Regular maintenance can help prevent major problems from arising or from spiraling out of control. All told, routine maintenance is a smart investment, and one of the smartest forms of routine maintenance is the regular oil change. Getting replacement oil and replacement oil filters from Meineke #699 in Redwood City are things every auto owner should do every few thousand miles.

Why Are Oil and Oil Filter Changes Necessary at All?

To understand the answer to this, you must first understand how your auto oil works. The oil in your car is essential for keeping it running smoothly. It keeps the engine parts lubricated, preventing the damage that can come from simple friction. This reduces engine wear and tear resulted by driving in streets of Redwood City. Without regular oil changes, your engine may be doing significant damage to itself. As a result, your car will not work as well and it certainly will not run for as long. Are you in the Redwood City area? Make an appointment at Meineke #699 in Redwood City today to change your car's oil and filter.

When Do You Need an Oil Change?

Something we are commonly asked at Meineke #699 by our customers in Redwood City CA is how frequently an oil change is needed. The short answer is that it can vary. Some people will tell you every 3,000 miles, others every 10,000 miles as it can vary from one vehicle type to the next. A good place to find out is in your vehicle owner’s manual. You can also simply bring your car to your local Meineke for an evaluation and to see how often the oil filter change is really necessary.

What Happens When You Skip the Oil Change?

If you don’t regularly get replacement oil and replacement oil filters, your engine will start to experience serious problems. First and foremost, it will overheat. This will cause it to run much less efficiently and can cause the engine parts to warp and corrode over time. Sooner or later, without routine oil changes, the entire engine will just shut down and you will have to replace it. Of course, this is much pricier than just changing the oil, which goes to show the basic value in preventative auto maintenance from Meineke #699
