One of the most common methods of maintenance for your vehicle will be an oil change. This everyday means of making sure your automobile is operating effectively is one of the most important ways to keep your engine at peak performance levels. Oil changes rely on the efficiency of an expert automobile repair shop, and with the full-service Grapevine TX auto repair from Family Tire and Service, we provide just that.
When it comes to your automobile, it is believed that its oil should be changed every 3,000 miles, or three months. Obviously, for those with longer commutes or travel more frequently, 3,000 miles may not take three months, which is why there are two barometers for which to measure by. Oil can lose its greasing tendency over time, making for harmful consequences to your engine’s health and requiring an essential oil change. The oil can chemically break down over time, requiring replacement. Without replacing your oil, you are putting your engine in harm’s way and potentially damaging your vehicle’s transmission. One can easily check the oil levels through the dipstick located under the front hood. First, make sure your car is parked on level ground. Allow the oil to settle for a few minutes, then gently pull the dipstick out and wipe it clean with a cloth. Reinsert the dipstick and pull it out again. The oil reading on the end of the stick will tell you how much oil your vehicle currently has. If the reading looks low, it is time for an essential oil change.
