The blog this week is about why it is important to change your car engine oil regularly. Oil helps to lubricate the key components within the engine and helps to maintain the correct temperatures. Dirty oil can affect the MPG and efficiency of your Volvo or Toyota. Everyone is trying to save money at the moment, interest rates are rising, fuel bills are rising, food costs are soaring etc so when it comes to owning a car, we need all the help we can get to keep costs down. Read on to find out more:

  1. Oil Maintains Engine Lubrication. All the rotating components within your engine create heat and will wear down the engine prematurely without proper oil lubrication. If you are changing the oil yourself please ensure that you dispose of the old oil in the correct manner – which is NOT down the drain!
  2. Cools Engine Components. Rotating parts can create friction which creates heat. Maintaining clean and correct oil levels will help prevent too much friction and over-heating of your Volvo or Toyota engine. Over time your oil will become dirty and contaminated so it is important to have regular car servicing where the old oil will be drained out and fresh oil will be put in.
  3. Improve Car Mileage & Longevity. Lack of sufficient engine lubrication not only increases premature wear and tear on engine parts it can also result in increased fuel consumption because your engine is working harder due to friction. This in turn will lead to more costly repair bills. Keep your engine oil topped up and get it changed regularly – your car will thank you for it along with your bank balance looking healthier because you have better fuel consumption and fewer repair bills! Happy Safe Motoring Folks!
