It's a common question. Many know that it is a normal part of maintaining your automobile, but many do not know why it is necessary. Oil ensures that your vehicles components are properly lubricated and won't wear out or cause heat with their friction. You can think of oil as the blood of your car. It's necessary to keep the car running at optimal efficiency. Oil Changes may seem tedious, but improper oil or irregular oil changes can lead to catastrophic issues with your car's engine. The lack of oil in the engine could cause parts to grind against each other, metal to metal, causing heat and friction. Over time, old oil will gather remnants of the materials that make up the engine, like iron and other metals. Those materials will build up and travel to other parts of the engine causing more and more buildup and resulting in major problems such as engine lockup or even explosions. Make sure your oil is in good condition at Kinsel Toyota.
