How long do oil changes take? It will be around 15 – 45 minitues.
Why should you change engine oil?.
The engine oil circulates through the engine. It is done by the oil pump. The engine is a major component of your car. It has many more mechanical components. They are pistons, cam shaft, crank shaft, valves and etc. These components move very fast as engine rpm rises.
With the time, long atom chains of engine oil degrade. After that it separates into short atom chains. Due to heat. It generates as a byproduct of the friction.
Then degraded oil is less efficient in lubricating. Improper oil change makes high friction into higher heat. Then components may seize.
So we have to perform regular services at correct time. It will differ by the manufacturer and the quality. As an example oil changes in every 5000 km or after 6 months. On which ever occur first basis.
Proper lubrication makes less friction.So it leads to less heat.With the time, engine worn particles can cause corrosion.Also it decreases the life of the engine. Proper maintenance removes engine worn particles and sludge.
Lack of engine lubrication leads to increased fuel consumption.So routine changes improves gas mileage.Proper maintenance makes the vehicle last longer.Dirty oil steals fuel economy and power. Also it makes components work harder. Then engine will have a shorter life span.
Right engine oil
Use of right oil increases life of the engine. As well as genuine oil filters. You may visit authorized dealer or distributor. Otherwise ensure about using oil and oil filters. Wrong oil may gives lack of lubrication. Wrong oil filter may gives lack of filtering. Also particles of filter paper may mix with oil. The cost may little high with genuine parts.But it pays back saving complete engine.
