Oil is the lifeblood of your engine and regular oil changes are an important part of vehicle maintenance. Bring your vehicle to Maple Grove BP for an oil change and experience the quality care that we are known for.
Have you ever wondered why we bother changing an engine’s oil? The truth is you really do. Heat is the enemy of your vehicle’s engine. When your vehicle is running the oil that lubricates your engine begins to become worn and break down slowly….the additives that are in the oil wear out and the system becomes less effective at preventing the heat causing friction.
Your oil filter’s job is to prevent contaminants from reaching your oil. It smooth’s the lubrication process and adds protection for your motor oil.
How Often Should I Change My Oil?
The answer to how often you should change your oil depends on a number of factors, not the least of which is how old is your vehicle. Other considerations are how far do you drive daily and are you in a lot of stop and go traffic?
If you are driving a newer vehicle, or if you use synthetic oil the time between oil changes can be extended. Older vehicles should stick to the 3 Months or 3,000 Miles rule of thumb. If you have questions about how often your vehicle’s oil should be changed please call us at: 763-559-9898.
