Replacement parts are important for any car. After all, things wear out, and worn parts won’t allow your car to perform to the best of its ability.
It’s important to remember that not all parts are made of metal or plastic. Your car’s oil is a vital element for your car’s overall performance, as your car won’t be able to run without it. As such, getting an oil change at our Philadelphia auto dealership not only protects your car, but your family and your wallet as well.
Your car, truck, or SUV’s engine runs at thousands of RPM, causing immense amounts heat and friction. Motor oil lubricates the parts inside your engine, reducing friction in the process.
Consequently, less friction also means less heat and wear over time, protecting your vehicle and enhancing its performance.
The slippery feel of your motor oil (otherwise known as its viscosity) doesn’t last forever. Over time, oil actually changes from viscous to gummy, and as it becomes dirtier, it actually causes the problems it was meant to solve.
If you recently bought one of our used cars, make a point to change your oil every 5,000 miles or so. The engines in new Chevy cars tend to use newer designs and synthetic oil, which allows them to go for about 10,000 miles between oil changes.
If you know it’s almost time for an oil change, stop by our dealership. You won’t hurt your engine by changing your oil early, especially if you’ve been doing more hauling or towing than usual.
Have you ever forgotten to change your oil? If so, you may have noticed these warning signs:
Going a few miles past your service interval won’t damage the oil in your used car. However, don’t go too long without getting an oil change, or you risk spending more on gas, overheating your engine, or worse. Visit Patriot Auto Group today for expert automotive service and maintenance!
