Oil is the lifeblood of a combustion engine, and oil changes are one of the most frequent and vital car maintenance tasks. If your car goes too long without an oil change, it could result in significantly reduced performance and costly repair work. Our Mitsubishi dealership’s licensed experts know your automobile inside and out, and they can handle any vehicle maintenance quickly and accurately. Let’s have a brief overview of why, how, and when you should get your Mitsubishi or other vehicle’s oil changed.
Oil lubricates and reduces friction between the moving parts in a combustion engine. Since the engine generates heat from friction and combustion, oil runs through it and serves as a lubricating and partial cooling agent. The oil’s remaining particles created during combustion are absorbed and routed to the oil filter, filtering debris and impurities.
It’s easy to see why, over time, this process causes the oil to get darker, thicker, and dirtier, making it less effective. This, in turn, puts more pressure on the filter until it also needs changing. The oil and oil filter work together to ensure that your vehicle’s engine runs smoothly, but every car has recommended mileage windows before changing them out. Time is also a factor, as even oil in a rarely driven car will degenerate eventually.
The team at Bonita Springs Mitsubishi will replace your engine’s oil with whatever type best suits your interests as a driver and swap the oil filter with a suitable, high-quality replacement. We will also lubricate the vehicle’s chassis components according to the manufacturer’s specifications. Our technicians will guarantee that your engine oil is clean and that all functioning parts are correctly lubricated.
Neglecting your engine’s oil system can not only be costly but dangerous. Keep an eye out for:
These may indicate an oil change is urgently needed, so do not hesitate to contact our service department for a professional assessment.
Anyone who has seen fresh engine oil will know that it is relatively light and clear. Changing your oil before it has become fully dark and opaque (in other words, before you definitely should) is a good idea. Usually, drivers want to know the minimum distance between oil changes to not impact performance or incur repair costs. Like maintaining good tire pressure or vehicle cleanliness, however, every driver will have standards that make sense to them.
For instance, some companies and authorities advocate an oil change every 3,000 miles for optimal performance and longevity, but that may not be every driver’s goal. If your goal is longevity and minimal expense, most newer vehicles can go between 5,000 to 7,000 miles of typical day-to-day commuter driving before needing an oil change. However, remember to check manufacturer recommendations on your exact make and model and follow that first as an upper limit. Once you go beyond manufacturer limits, problems are likely to occur, or at the very least, performance will begin to suffer.
For a Mitsubishi or otherwise, vehicle services can seem intimidating at first, but oil services are comparatively inexpensive. Our team can help you decide if going with more frequent services to suit your driving lifestyle would be the better option. Overall, yes, it does pay to change your oil more often than the bare minimum, but it depends on the driver.
An oil change takes only 30-45 minutes to complete in most cases. With a pre-scheduled appointment, it may take even less. The service department at Bonita Springs Mitsubishi will select and replace the appropriate grade of oil and corresponding filter for your vehicle, allowing it to run at its best.
Changing your vehicle’s oil regularly will help your engine function more efficiently and save you money, something no car owner should miss. Taking a few minutes out of your day to get this routine maintenance performed on your vehicle can help keep it on the road for many years.
