Why Are Oil Changes So Important?, Honolulu, Hawaii

An oil change is one of those things we all know we must do regularly, but surprisingly, few people know why. Typically, it's advised that you change your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, depending on the conditions in which you drive. If you tow a lot of weight or spend a lot of time in traffic, you should replace your oil more often. What does this new oil do for your vehicle? Fantastik Auto Repair is here to answer that question.

Oil keeps all of the engine components working efficiently, and replacing this oil regularly prevents grime and carbon from accumulating in the moving parts. It's important to remember that every second, thousands of explosions are occurring within the engine in order to move the vehicle forward. The oil cycles around and coats the inside of the engine in order to keep everything from overheating.

This is a big job, and no matter how high quality your oil is, it will degrade over time. If you were to stop replacing your engine oil, before long, it would turn into a thick black sludge that was incapable of keeping the engine cool and lubricated. If you were putting off an oil change to save money, you're not going to like the bill to clean and repair a seized engine. 

To keep your engine running smoothly, schedule your next oil change at Fantastik Auto Repair, Honolulu's favorite car repair shop. If you need a simple maintenance checkup or a complete car restoration, they've got you covered. To schedule an appointment, call (808) 842-3777 or visit them online
