From drives to the park to trips into the city down I-75, you count on the oil in your vehicle's engine every time you head out on the roads of Flushing, Flint, and Swartz Creek, Michigan. To keep the engine performing at its very best, you will need to have the oil changed every few thousand miles.
Here to help you when your Ford is due for an oil change is our team at LaFontaine Ford of Flushing! They can quickly complete this routine service and make sure your car's engine continues to provide a smooth and safe performance.
Why do we need to change the oil in our cars? The reason for this routine yet crucial service is to help keep the engine performing safely and at its most efficient.
The engine oil has two key responsibilities. It keeps the moving parts in the engine lubricated, so they can freely and smoothly move about without damaging other parts. It also helps dissipate heat, so the engine doesn’t overheat. Over time, though, debris gets into the oil and the oil level itself lowers.
In order, then, to keep the oil doing its job at its very best, you will need to have it changed when it becomes old and low in level. Getting the oil changed also helps lower the chances of damage happening to the engine, so it won‘t need to undergo more complex repairs.
How do you know when it's time for an oil change? While it is best to get the oil changed once every six months or every 5,000 miles, the lifespan of engine oil varies from car to car. That is why you will want to schedule an oil change whenever you notice any of these warning signs:
It is also best to check the engine oil yourself once a month. This is something that only takes a few minutes. You can gauge the overall condition of the oil and make sure there is enough still in the engine.
