The blog this week is about why you should change the oil in your Volvo or Toyota regularly. It is an essential part of good vehicle maintenance – your oil is the blood of your engine – running out of oil will be catastrophic – you will need a new engine! Read on to find out more:

Changing your oil regularly in your Volvo or Toyota is necessary to keep the engine in the best shape and running efficiently for longer. Any dirty oil you have in there will begin to damage components of the engine if it’s left for too long. Your engine and oil go hand in hand. Your engine needs clean oil to function correctly as it lubricates and cools down the engine’s moving parts. This enables less friction on moving parts increasing the longevity of these parts.

The oil in your engine plays a crucial role in keeping your engine cool. Lubrication of the moving parts and dispersing heat away from them will help keep things running smoothly. If your car is using dirty oil or if there isn’t enough oil, it will be unable to do these two things for you. Without proper lubrication and dispersal of heat, it will get hot fast and exceed temperature limits. An engine that gets too hot could lead to significant and even expensive damage from engine components failing. We have written many blogs on the importance of regular car servicing and regular oil and filter changes.  Those that do a lot of miles often have an annual service and an oil and filter change in between. It makes sense and helps keep your engine in tip top condition. Looking after your engine means that it will last longer. Remember, preventative maintenance now is always cheaper than reactive repairs later. Happy Safe Motoring Folks!
