Depending on your vehicle type, there are different oils available when you are having an oil change service done. Oil is an important component in making sure your car will function properly. A standard or diesel motor, climate, and driving habits are factors that affect what type of oil change and how often an oil change is needed. Here at Sierra Toyota, we work with conventional oil, semi-synthetic oil, fully synthetic oil, and diesel vehicle oil change.
The rapidly moving parts in your vehicle’s motor generate a lot of heat and friction. These parts require proper lubrication. This is where motor oil comes in. Oil lubricates and absorbs excessive heat to prevent damaging problems from developing. Depending on the type of motor and other conditions, conventional or synthetic oils may be used to help with this friction and heat. Routine oil changes for your vehicle will help it operate optimally. It is an easy way to extend the life of your vehicle.
The correct type of oil must be used with regular oil change routines. If oil changes are consistently neglected, major problems can start to happen. Parts of the engine can warp from excessive heat if the oil is not regularly changed. The oil will not work correctly if it becomes old and broken down. The motor can completely shut down in extreme cases. An entire motor may be needed which can be costly. Following manufacturer recommendations, servicing your vehicle’s oil consistently will lead to extended performance and can save a lot of headaches down the road.
