Oil Change & Lube
All Leavenworth drivers should know that changing your engine oil and filter regularly as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer is the single most important activity you can perform on your vehicle. Today’s engines work harder, run hotter and operate under greater pressures than they did before. Up to 75% of engine wear occurs while your engine warms up.
Over time, engine oil breaks down and collects dirt, reducing its effectiveness in keeping your engine cool and running smoothly. If your engine loses enough oil or if the oil becomes dirty enough, the parts in your engine can suffer serious damage, resulting in extensive and expensive repairs. Understanding how different driving conditions impact your vehicle will help you determine how frequently to change your motor oil.
Regular oil changes are the most important preventative maintenance service you can have performed on your vehicle, are insurance against engine wear, and will save you money in the long run if you keep a car for more than three or four years. It’s very uncommon to see an engine that has been well maintained with regular oil changes develop major bearing, ring, cam or valve problems before reaching 100,000 miles.
