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 #115 in Elizabeth are things every auto owner should do every few thousand miles.

What Does Engine Oil Do?

To understand what makes an oil change so necessary, it is important to first think about what the oil in your car does. It provides a couple of key functions. The first is to serve, quite literally, as car lube, keeping the pieces of your engine from grinding against one another and causing damage due to friction. Additionally, oil transfers heat away from your engine and prevents it from overheating. In sum, the oil in your car ensures that the wear and tear your engine sustains is minimal.

When Do You Need an Oil Change?

Something we are commonly asked at Meineke #115 by our customers in Elizabeth NJ 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.

But What if You Miss an Oil Change?

The consequences of not changing your oil are major. First, the engine will overheat and the pieces can become warped or melted. Without the right car lube, your engine pieces will also cause corrosive friction. Sooner or later, your vehicle will simply stop working and you will be faced with the expensive prospect of engine replacement. Investing in routine auto maintenance in the form of regular oil changes is obviously a smarter move. To learn more, come see us at Meineke #115 Elizabeth NJ today!
