Why Should I Get An Oil Change?

Why Should I Get An Oil Change?Oil changes are an easy preventative maintenance step that you can take in caring for your vehicle. Think of it as a “cleanse” for your car. While oil is necessary for your engine, it can cause issues if you don’t regularly change the oil according to your owner’s manual. No matter what type of oil you use, over time the oil decomposes and can cause harm to your engine if not replaced prior to decay. However, this process is significantly delayed by using premium synthetic oil whose properties make it superior to the standard oil you may be currently using.

 
An oil change keeps your engine clean, running properly and avoids corrosion from occurring. Here are a couple of reasons you should consider using synthetic rather than standard for future oil changes.
 
• Your time is valuable— No one has time for unexpected trips to the shop to deal with engine problems so, avoid them from the start. While all oil breaks down over time, synthetic oil is much more durable. The increased durability allows for a longer mileage interval between oil changes. If you find that you are often past due for your oil change or like the sound of more time between your trips to the shop, take advantage of synthetic oil. When you do come in to our shop, we want to ensure your comfort so that you can be just as productive waiting for your car as we are working on your car. From ample power outlets and free, reliable WiFi to free coffee and water, we provide you with the resources to get your work done or just sit comfortably while you wait.
 
• Money in your pocket— Yes, synthetic oil is more expensive than standard oil. However, the extra dollars you invest at each oil change can save you big in the long run. By using synthetic oil, you can prevent other issues from developing in your car. Synthetic oil has superior thermal stability properties. Because of this, it can endure extreme temperatures, producing significantly less stress on your engine when starting your car on those scorching hot summer days or below freezing New England winter mornings. Reduced resistance in the engine also translates to greater horsepower and overall efficiency. The increased horsepower allows for reduced gas usage, again decreasing your long-term costs. Avoid costly trips for vehicle repairs with this preventative maintenance measure.
