Here at Country Town Tire & Auto Service Center, we want to help you take the best care of your car. Most people know that regular oil changes are an important part of proper car maintenance, but fewer people fully understand why that is. We believe in giving customers like you all the information they need to make the right decisions for their car, which is why in this article we’ll be going over what an oil change actually does.
The engine of your car consists of many moving parts. As you drive, these parts rub against each other, creating friction, and in turn, heat. Motor oil lubricates the engine, reducing friction and absorbing heat, which allows all the parts to work together effectively without danger of overheating.
Over time, the molecules in motor oil break down, making it less effective as a lubricant. As the oil in your car degrades, the moving parts of your engine will create more friction, and less heat will be absorbed into the oil. To prevent your car from overheating or other major engine trouble, you will need to bring your car in for an oil change to replace the broken-down oil for fresh stuff that can do its job. Some drivers prefer to perform this job themselves, but if you’re reading this article then you may want to leave it to the professionals here at Country Town Tire & Auto Service Center.
We at Country Town Tire & Auto Service Center hope that this article has been informative, and will help you remember to get your oil changed when necessary.
