There is a procedure that us here at All Around Auto follow. We want to make sure that your vehicle is safe for the road. First thing we do is check all or your lights, make sure they are all in working order. Then me do a minor safety inspection. This includes checking your air filter, checking and topping off all of your fluids, setting your tire pressure, shaking down the front end, and looking for noticeable leaks. These are just some of the things that we do here to make sure your safe. After we completed these things, we then perform the oil change service. Which includes, changing the oil filter and replacing with the specified filter for the vehicle. Then we drain the oil from the crank case. Then lastly we fill the oil back up, replace the oil change sticker, and let you know of and maintenance in the future.
Engine oil is what lubricates a car’s engine, allowing it to run smoothly and last longer. Car owners must maintain their cars’ engines by changing the oil and using the oil appropriate for their cars’ makes and models. Every car comes with a check oil light and an oil filter under the hood. These components allow car owners to monitor their oil levels and add oil as needed without having to hire a mechanic.
Changing the Oil
An important part of routine car maintenance is changing the oil regularly. The necessary frequency of oil changes has become a point of contention among experts. The Engine Oil Bible maintains that engine oil can’t be changed often enough, but Nordic Group insists that, with the advent of detergent oils and multi-weight oils, some vehicles can go as far as 6,000 miles before needing an oil change. The best course of action is to check the owner’s manual and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
An obvious benefit of changing one’s own oil is saving money, but oil change services frequently advertise bargains. If the check engine oil light comes on when you’re driving, this is a strong indication that the car is running low on oil. A driver does not need a mechanic to add oil. However, if the oil light stays on or lights up shortly after adding oil, there may be a leak, and a mechanic should look at the car.
