The most important thing you can do to keep your Northeast Ohio car or truck running safely and efficiently for a long time is to perform preventative maintenance on your vehicle, such as having your oil changed on schedule. With a full service oil change at Paradise Car Care in Ravenna Ohio, your other engine fluids are checked and topped off so you don’t run into problems caused by low fluids.
After time, even the most expensive oil eventually starts to turn into jelly. Literally – petroleum jelly. Sludge clogs up oil passages and keeps oil from getting to some areas of the engine, causing parts to wear out prematurely. And that means expensive engine repairs.
Changing the oil and oil filter on schedule gets the old oil out before it turns to sludge. Your manufacturer will have a recommendation for how many miles you can go between oil changes. They also usually have a number of months between recommended oil changes. That’s because the detergents and other additives in the oil break down over time.
Although your owner’s manual will have a recommendation for time and mileage, you need to remember that the factory recommendation is based on using the recommended weight of oil. And if your vehicle came from the factory with synthetic oil, the recommended intervals assume you continue to use synthetic.
Driving style and habits can have a big effect on how your oil and other fluids function over time. Most owner’s manuals will have a list of driving conditions that are harder on your vehicle — things like stop and go driving, short trips to Kent, driving in very hot or very cold weather, heavy loads and towing. If some of your driving fits this, you may need to change your oil and do other maintenance on a shorter schedule.
You can be confident that if during your oil change appointment your technician at Paradise Car Care in Ravenna, Ohio sees a developing problem elsewhere in your vehicle, he’ll recommend needed maintenance and give you professional advice.
