Why is an Oil Change Important?

Oil Change Seattle WARoutine oil change is a crucial part of your routine auto maintenance program to help ensure your vehicle lasts for a long while.

Oil is said to be the life blood of your car’s engine because it keeps the parts rotating smoothly and working properly.

While the frequency intervals for changing oil in your vehicle vary depending on where you are getting advice, you can consult your owner’s manual for your particular vehicle.

These are reasons that regular oil change intervals are important:

  • Heat from the engine breaks down the oil
  • Exhaust gases from the cylinders can contaminate the oil
  • Oil can absorb dust, water and combustion byproducts that may cause corrosion
  • Additives for neutralizing acids get used up and become ineffective

Call Rick’s Tire and Chevron to schedule a car tune up or auto maintenance repair services.  We are an Amsoil® oil dealer and use complete Chevron® products.
