Does your car seem a little more sluggish than it did a few weeks ago? Does the engine seem a little noisier than usual? Because of the freezing temperatures that most parts of the country have experienced during the last few months, you may find that your vehicle is showing a few signs that it’s time for an oil change. Some vehicle owners think that unless they are actually having car problems, they wonder if high-quality oil changes are worth the extra cost; that any oil will do. However, just because you aren’t experiencing any symptoms doesn’t mean problems don’t exist. The damage caused by using inferior oil may not be noticed until later down the road.

Using inferior motor oils can end up costing you more in engine repair than the price of using high-quality oil. Inferior oils can deposit harmful contaminants into the engine’s lubricating system. Even before there are any visible symptoms of problems, damage may have already occurred, and the engine’s performance level may not be brought back to normal.

Why use high-quality oil for your vehicle?

  • Older engines that have already passed the manufacturer’s warranty period are more prone to wear and tear. High-quality oil ensures better lubrication for maximum engine protection.
  • Good-quality motor oil keeps contaminants separated and held in suspension. Poor quality oils can contribute to sludge build-up formed by a combination of dirt, soot, partially burned fuel, oxidized motor oil, leaked coolant and condensed water vapor produced during combustion. Regular oil changes keep these contaminants drained out.
  • “Severe” driving, which means a lot of stop-and-go, short-trips, and frequent towing, creates tough conditions for an engine. The oil change intervals for these demanding conditions are about half as long as for “normal” intervals.

Did you know? It’s especially important to have regular oil changes so your auto mechanic can keep an eye on all the systems of your vehicle for any other pending problems. Many auto shops provide oil change coupons to make more frequent quality oil changes more affordable.

Are you wondering why high-quality oil changes are worth the cost? Contact our ASE-certified technicians today at Express Care Auto Center to ask about our oil change coupons and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop serves vehicle owners in North Mankato, MN, and the neighboring communities of Mankato, MN, New Ulm, MN, and St. Peter, MN.
