Oil changes are one of the most basic tenements in automotive maintenance. The oil in your engine is the lifeblood of your car, truck or SUV. This is because it helps lubricate, clean and overall protect the moving components in your engine. If your engine didn’t have oil in it, it would seize up as mechanical damage is done to your engine. Not to worry, most vehicles are equipped with a malfunction indicator light that will tell you your oil level is low.
This light is triggered by a drop in your oil pressure. Your oil level will need to be really low in order to trigger this light and it means you should check your oil levels and put some in before taking your vehicle to be inspected by a professional technician sooner rather than later.
Oil leaks are common and while they may be hard to spot, getting regular oil changes at Clarks Auto Repair will allow us to inspect those components in your engine compartment that are most subject to wear and tear. We will be able to spot cracks in belts or leaks in hoses that could other turn into much larger problems if left unattended.
We will also change out your oil filter which help your engine oil clean the harmful contaminants and debris that gets trapped inside your engine. Once your oil passes through the filter it deposits the debris in the filter but over time your filter can because saturated. When your filter is saturated it can no longer perform its job and the harmful debris is then recirculated throughout your engine which could cause more involved repairs to become necessary.
