Several high friction metal parts are constantly moving when your vehicle is running. Extreme heat and wear compound the stress your motor goes through. This is where the importance of regular oil changes comes in. Engine oil is the primary fluid that helps to keep engine components from heating up and breaking down. Consistent oil changes will help extend the life of your vehicle's motor and can also prevent major costly repairs.
An oil change involves replacing the old oil with a new batch after the old is drained. Old oil filters that collect debris and small metal pieces will be replaced at the time of service. Briggs Nissan has professionally trained auto technicians who will replace the old batch of oil and filter with any oil change service. Depending on your vehicle, semi-synthetic oil or fully synthetic oil may be used. Diesel vehicles will require a diesel vehicle oil change.
There are many fast-moving components in your vehicle's engine. With such rapidly moving parts, massive amounts of friction are generated. The purpose of motor oil is to absorb heat from the motor and lubricate various parts. This helps to reduce heat which allows quickly moving parts to function properly. You can easily extend the life of your motor by simply following an oil change schedule as recommended by the manufacturer.
Major problems can start happening when oil is not regularly changed. Warping and wear of certain parts of the engine will happen if extreme heat occurs because the oil is old and not doing its job effectively. This can lead to an entire engine shutdown. A costly motor replacement will be necessary in the most extreme cases of neglect. Usually, at that point, vehicles are replaced which can be a major expense. The oil doesn't absorb heat as it should cause the motor to be improperly lubricated. This worsens as the oil breaks down. It is recommended to change the oil before it becomes overly worn. With regular oil changes, major repair issues can be avoided.
