What Does Oil Do in Your Engine?
We all know that oil places a large part in the operation of your vehicle, but you can be forgiven if you don’t know exactly what it does, and why it’s so integral to vehicle service. There are a lot of moving parts that make up your vehicle, a lot of action and a lot of potential for friction, along with the need to move freely to complete the operation they need to. Engine oil arrives as a form of lubrication for these parts and components, ensuring that they’re able to move as they wish, cutting down on build-up and ensuring the heat produced by the engine is kept to a minimum.
Why You Need Regular Oil Changes
Now that you know why engine oil is so important, let’s break down why you need to have it periodically changed and you can’t just exist with the same engine oil for extended periods of time. Engine oil is always at work, and, unfortunately, because it’s such a hard worker it eventually breaks down over time. The heat of the engine contributes to this breakdown of the oil, causing it to thicken like sludge, and thus not able to complete its job like it once could. This could result in overheating and engine damage. Due to this, we need to have the oil in your vehicle changed on a consistent schedule.
How Often Should You Get Your Oil Changed?
This is a common question, how often should you get your oil changed? Your first best bet would be to consult the owner’s manual of your vehicle, so you can get a specific range for your exact model. Speaking in general terms, every 5,000 km (or 3 months), was the benchmark that many worked off of. Nowadays, thanks to the innovations of vehicles, that number is moreso on the higher end of around 8,000 km (or 6 months). If you’re unclear of when to come in, our North Edmonton Kia team would be more than happy to help you find a good schedule for you and your vehicle.
