The blog this week is about the engine oil in your Toyota or Volvo. Do you check your oil regularly or do you leave it to your local independent garage
during your annual service? Do you stick to your regular service schedule in your Volvo or Toyota manufacturer recommended owners handbook?

Oil Light

Over time your engine oil will become contaminated, there is no way of stopping this, it’s just the way it is. When this happens these contaminants will
start to settle at the bottom of your engine. This in the trade is referred to as sludge! When you book in for your routine service your oil will be
checked, will be drained (and disposed of in the correct manner) and new oil will replace it. It is important to ensure that you maintain your service
schedule to allow for this to happen. You can of course do this yourself, but make sure that you dispose of the old oil in the correct manner (not
down a drain) and that you are using the correct oil viscosity for your Toyota or Volvo. If you are unsure as to what the viscosity is then refer to
your owners manual. If the oil you use is too thin you could encounter problems with wear issues within your Volvo or Toyota engine. Using an oil that
is too thick will cause your Volvo or Toyota engine to work much harder than it needs to resulting in it becoming less efficient. If in any doubt speak
with your local independent garage. Your engine works extremely hard and the oil keeps everything lubricated which helps to maintain the life span
of these moving parts.
