Engine Oil Change Essex

Why Do I Need An Oil Change?

Engine oil is essential for lubricating thousands of engine components and carrying heat away from the engine. It is an important aspect for the running of a car and with most modern lubricants should be changed every 5000-7000 miles, but we can happily suggest the best regularity for your particular vehicle.

Changing the oil is important as when the oil moves throughout the engine, it picks up dirt and debris. This is good because it keeps the engine free of particles but over time the oil can become too dirty to be effective. If you neglect changing your oil when it needs it, the engine and its parts can become too hot and will run less efficiently. This can cause car parts to warp and wear out and eventually the engine will shut down – so it is important to be vigilant about oil changes or face costly repairs down the line.

How Do I Tell When The Oil Needs Changing?

As we have mentioned, most modern cars will need an engine change around every 5000-7000 miles but there are some other signs you can look out for that indicate it is time for an oil change. You may notice excess smoke coming from your vehicle exhaust, more engine noise, a different oil texture, a low oil level when you check and the engine oil light displaying. The car might also shake while idle and make a ticking sound when you start the engine.

Oil should always be replaced rather than simply topped up, as it is important to have clean oil for the smooth running of the engine. If not, the new oil can be diluted with the old and will not work as effectively. It is best to drain any remaining exiting oil and then replace with the new.
