What is the role of engine oil?
The engine oil is necessary through the engine of your vehicle to lubricate and protect it. This essential oil extends the life and improves the performance of your engine.
To keep your engine running smoothly, we at Auto Surefit Motoring Centre, Wolverhampton recommend a regular oil change.
Why is the oil change so important?
With regular oil changes, you not only extend the life of your engine but also consume less fuel while driving. The engine oil fulfils many important functions: It prevents the moving engine parts from rubbing against each other. Without lubrication by the engine oil cylinder and piston would seize and suddenly stop. This could result in damage to cylinders, bearings and crankshaft which would prove costly to repair.
Oil minimises friction and ensures less frictional heat. In addition, it cools the heat-stressed components of the engine that does not reach the coolant. Another important task is the fine sealing between cylinder surfaces, pistons and piston rings.
Which engine oil is right for my car?
Engine oil consists of a finely tuned system of base oil and chemical additives that improve the protective and lubricating properties of the base oil. The additives prevent acids or water from damaging important parts of the engine or settling dirt particles. The higher the proportion of additive components; the better the quality of the oil.
To find out which oil is right for your model, see the manufacturer's instructions.
When should I change my engine oil?
The replacement intervals recommended for your vehicle can also be found in the manufacturer's manual. How often your vehicle needs to be supplied with new oil depends not only on the engine but also on the intensity of use and the driving style.
As a guide, oil should be changed every 1.5 to 2 years.
