Timely Oil Changes are Key to a Strong Engine

If you want to avoid damage to your engine and costly auto repair services, changing your oil must remain a top priority mile after mile. Motor oil serves as the lifeblood of your powerplant, helping you get around town without a hint of drama.

The oil inside your engine does not just lubricate all the moving parts. This vital fluid also actively cleans away dirt particles while helping cool all the internal surfaces.

As it does all such things, the motor oil degrades over time and becomes saturated with particles. If the dirty fluid keeps circulating, it can do more harm than good.

Thankfully, all you have to do is change your oil on the given schedule to keep the fluid fresh and clean.

Common Intervals for Changing Oil

In the past, almost all vehicles needed to change oil at 3,000 miles or every three months. Advancements in engine design and fluid technology have changed all that. Modern cars can now go anywhere from 3,000 to over 10,000 miles between each synthetic oil change.

The exact interval you need to follow depends on your vehicle’s year, make, and model. Plus, you must consider other factors, like how you drive and where your travels take you. It’s best to have your mechanic assess your car’s needs and help you set up the perfect maintenance schedule to follow.

Why We Only Use Full Synthetic Oil

At Bob’s Automotive, we only use full synthetic oil during oil changes—and for good reasons. Synthetic formulas reduce friction, minimize deposits, and function great in high and low temperatures.

Beyond that, full synthetic oil has the highest quality additives designed to protect your engine from damage. These additives help raise oil pressure to avoid dry starts and other lubrication issues. They also reduce oil consumption, maximize fuel efficiency, and even increase power.

When you go with synthetics, you know your oil is always working double time in helping your engine run at its best. You can then pilot your vehicle around town with confidence that your oil adequately cools, cleans, and lubricates all the moving parts in your engine.
