Keeping up with your recommended oil change schedule is an important part of keeping your vehicle in great shape. Oil protects your engine and keeps it running smoothly but, over time, oil starts to break down and can begin to corrode your engine; this can cause serious damage and costly repairs. Having your oil changed regularly prevents this damage and keeps your car running great. Not all oil changes are created equally. But with Mio Car Services oil changing services, we go above and beyond with our oil change service.
Oil eventually starts to turn into jelly. Literally – petroleum jelly. Sludge clogs up oil passages and keeps oil from getting to some areas of the engine, causing parts to wear out prematurely. And that means expensive engine repairs. That’s why you need to change the oil and oil filter on schedule – to get the old oil out before it turns to sludge. Your manufacturer will have a recommendation for how many miles you can go between oil changes. They also usually have a number of months between recommended oil changes. That’s because the detergents and other additives in the oil break down over time.
