The Benefits of Changing Your Motor Oil

Most people know that oil lubricates moving parts. What they don’t realize is that it also cleans, dampens noise, acts as a coolant, and helps in diagnosing engine problems.

 

Motor oil is to an engine what blood is to a human being. Clean oil picks up dirt, carbon deposits, metal particles, and various other impurities from throughout your engine, and, like blood is passed through your kidneys for filtering, the oil is passed throughout the oil filter, where the majority of waste is trapped and left to do no harm. That is until the oil and filter need changing again.

 

The oil in your vehicle normally should be changed every three months or 3000-4000 miles. Even with the expensive synthetic oils, you should stick with this same schedule.

 

Benefit of Changing Your Air Filter

There are benefits to changing your air filter regularly, including better gas mileage, reduced emissions, improved acceleration ,increased engine life, and overall improved drive-ability. For each gallon of fuel burned, the engine uses up to 10,000 gallons of air; thus a dirty air filter will greatly reduce the engine’s efficiency.

 

Air filters should be changed every 12,000 to 15,0000 miles, and more often in dusty driving conditions.

 

A new air filter will increase gas mileage, reduce emissions, allow optimal air flow, and improve engine performance. In addition, changing your air filter regularly will help protect the engine and vital internal engine parts from excess wear and damage that results in drive-ability issues and potentially expensive engine repairs.
