The Basics Behind Lube and Oil Change Services at Checkered Flag Auto Maintenance
Motor oil and lube changes are very important for keeping your engine functioning properly. Motor oil keeps your engine lubricated so there isn’t any excess friction or wear on moving parts. Oil cools down your engine, fights rust and corrosion, reduces engine noise, and works with the oil filter to remove contaminants from the engine. Oil is very important to your engine for helping it operate at optimum performance levels. When you drive your car, your engine becomes very hot, and heat makes oil break down. Broken down oil doesn’t move through your engine as well, which means the oil cannot do its job. Oil also cleans your engine as it flows around it. Dirty oil moves more slowly than clean oil and is not able to lubricate your engine correctly. In addition, the gritty particles in dirty oil can hinder its friction reduction abilities and increase wear on moving parts.
