Oil Change Benton AR
Most people are familiar with the old adage “change your oil every three months or three thousand miles, whichever comes first” but vehicles can now go further between regularly scheduled maintenance such as oil changes. We understand how the modern car is made and that’s why we would never suggest a service or repair that your vehicle doesn’t need. But it is important to get your oil changed per your owner’s manual’s suggestion if not sooner because there are components in your engine compartment that are still vulnerable to wear and tear.
Your engine oil protects and lubricates the moving pieces in your engine, preventing metal on metal contact that can cause serious mechanical damage to your vehicle. Oil also helps keep down friction and heat in your engine compartment. A good rule of thumb is to check your dipstick every other time you fill up your tank and safely look for warning signs (use protective gloves).
These warning signs can include a burnt smell to your oil, a gritty texture or an off color (such as a milky white hue). If you notice these symptoms then it’s a good idea to have your car inspected by Baxley’s Auto Repair sooner rather than later.
