OIL CHANGE/LUBE OIL AND FILTER SERVICE

Why does your engine need a regular oil change? Let's keep it simple and highlight some key facts about oil. Engine oil is a:
Oil, whether it is synthetic or conventional, is first and foremost a lubricant. After a while the oil will break down and lose its lubricating properties, this is natural and with almost any vehicle this will occur every 3 months of solid driving or 3,500-5,000 miles.
Oil's lubricating properties reduce friction and pulls heat away from the moving parts of the engine. Also most newer cars have an oil cooler that pumps cooled oil back through the engine to reduce overall temperature.
Engine oil will filter debris from the crank case and oil galleys. Most oil is also built with detergent packs which keep all internal moving parts clean. Cheap oil will work for any vehicle but your vehicle can really benefit from the good stuff.
