Oil & Filter Change
Simply Smog & Valencia Auto Performance is with the majority in the belief that you should change your oil every 3,000 miles. Different manufacturers have different recommendations for their vehicles and it’s always a good idea to check your owner’s manual. Changing oil on a regular and timely basis should be priority number one for every vehicle owner. Regular oil changes have the power to prevent a significant number of major auto problems and for that reason alone should be done by anyone who values the longevity of their automobile.
Why Do I Have to Change Oil?
The viscosity of oil breaks down after a certain amount of usage. As this property begins to degrade, its ability to lubricate and protect the moving parts of the engine degrades as well. When it gets too weak, the metal parts of the engine begin to rub against one another, causing them to begin to degrade. Here’s where the potential for serious damage begins. Engines are composed of many moving parts working together as a whole, and when one begins to fail, it can cause problems for all the others, as well.
In short, to make it very simple: not changing your oil leads directly to extra wear on your engine, shortening its lifespan. Changing the oil regularly ensures a long and healthy life for your engine. It’s as simple as that.
