Regular servicing using the right oils and fluids is the difference between having a car that runs smoothly and efficiently and one which sees you spending money hand over fist in the future on avoidable repairs. New cars come with log books that set out the manufacturer’s specific servicing requirements which must be met to keep the warranty valid, but even if you don’t have a manufacturer’s warranty to consider, it’s still important to have your car serviced at regular intervals using the right oil.
Changing the engine oil and having the fuel injectors cleaned at regular intervals keeps your engine clean and running efficiently. When your engine is running, debris from the wear and tear of parts makes its way into the oil, polluting it and preventing it from performing efficiently. As part of your service, whether a standard or log book service, we’ll change the oil using the right high-quality oil for your engine.
Regular servicing, which involves checking tyre pressure and changing the oil, contribute towards better mileage, an important consideration in an era of escalating oil prices. When your tyres are inflated unevenly or inadequately it increases both rolling resistance and fuel consumption. Excessive fuel consumption can also be caused by dirty or old engine oil. An oil change using clean, high-quality engine oil delivers better lubrication which reduces friction between moving parts and leads to a more efficient engine which, in turn, delivers better mileage.
As your engine and other systems are more efficient as a result of the oil change and service, they deliver a better performance, so the accelerator responds better, the brakes are more efficient and you find that you have better control over the steering. This makes for a more enjoyable driving experience and also helps to keep you and your passengers safer on the road. Regular servicing is important for road safety.
Longer Engine Life
The two most prominent causes of engine problems are friction and wear. Having your car serviced regularly with the right engine oil reduces friction and wear, and keeps it performing optimally for longer. This results in a longer engine life, fewer car maintenance expenses and a more solid resale value when it comes time to sell it or trade it in.
As you can see, there are many advantages to having your car serviced regularly by expert mechanics using the right engine oil. To book a service or learn more about the auto services we provide to car owners in Newcastle, call (02) 4958 4787.
