Oil Service

by Andrew Automoto7. September 2012 10:30

One of the most important aspects to keeping your vehicle running smoothly is the Oil service. This helps with the maintance and inner workings of your Engine. Over time your engine oil will gradually lose its lubricating assets, which protects the internal movements of the engine and can cause engine failure. Engine failure can be caused by friction between moving parts inside of your engine, so to prevent engine failure make sure that you change your oil regularly, with the recommended oil for the make and model of your vehicle. 

When trying to figure out if it is time to change your engine oil, it will depend on a few different factors: The sort of vehicle you own, and the driving conditions of the vehicle.              

Most manufacturers recommend that the oil be changed every 6 to 12 months or every 10,000km, in an average 5 seater vehicle. However you also need to factor in how the vehicle is driven and what conditions the vehicle is driven in. If the vehicle isn't driven often, is driven for only short distances, or in stop start traffic, it is recommended that you use the time measurement of 6 or 12 months depending on your manufacturers recommendations, as a guide of when to have your oil changed. Not all vehicles run on the 6-12months or every 10,000km oil change rule. If you are unsure when to change the oil on your vehicle is recommended you check your owners manual or speak to an authorised dealer.
