Your vehicle operates using a system of moving parts, hoses, and fluids. All of these elements work together to keep your engine lubricated and cool to prevent overheating. An oil change is one of the most vital and simple things you can do to ensure that your car is running the way it should. With regular oil changes at Mechanic One Auto Repair, you can extend the life of your engine and possibly save yourself expensive repairs in the future.
The oil in your engine helps to lubricate all the moving parts to prevent friction and damage. It also keeps the engine cool as it runs. Over time, this oil can start to gather a buildup of dirt, grime, and other debris. Your oil filter helps to keep that debris at a minimum, but both the oil filter and oil should be changed regularly to keep things clean. When you don’t get timely oil changes, it can cause friction in the engine that may result in possible damage.
Aside from oil, every vehicle uses a wide range of other fluids to keep each component working properly. This includes your brake fluid, power steering fluid, transmission fluid, and differential fluids for the front and rear. Cars also use power steering fluid to make driving easier. They also need coolant system fluid to keep you nice and comfortable whenever you turn on the air conditioner. Each of these fluids should be monitored and changed as needed. Just like the oil in your engine, other fluids can and will experience a buildup of dirt and grime.
In some cases, the hoses that feed these fluids to various parts of the engine may have cracks or come loose. When that happens, you’ll experience leaking that can lead to serious problems. If the fuel injection system is leaking or your brake hose has a leak, you’re losing valuable fluid that can wreak havoc on your car. In particular, brake fluid should be monitored so you can ensure that you’re able to safely come to a complete stop when you drive.
