Engine oil is what lubricates a car’s engine, allowing it to run smoothly and last longer. Car owners must maintain a car’s engine by changing the oil and using the oil appropriate for their cars make and model. Every car comes with a check oil light and an oil filter under the hood. These components allow car owners to monitor their oil levels and add oil as needed without having to hire a mechanic.
Changing the Oil
An important part of routine car maintenance is changing the oil regularly. The necessary frequency of oil changes has become a point of contention among experts. The Engine Oil Bible maintains that engine oil can’t be changed often enough, but Nordic Group insists that, with the advent of detergent oils and multi-weight oils, some vehicles can go as far as 6,000 miles before needing an oil change. The best course of action is to check the owner’s manual and follow manufacturer’s recommendations.
An obvious benefit of changing one’s own oil is saving money, but oil change services frequently advertise bargains. If the “check engine oil” light comes on while driving, this is a strong indication that the car is running low on oil. A driver does not need a mechanic to add oil. However, if the oil light stays on or lights up shortly after adding oil, there may be a leak, and a mechanic should look at the car.

Always Change Your Oil Filter!
An oil filter’s job is to remove oil contaminants. It sifts out the solid particles while allowing oil to flow unrestricted through the engine. When the oil filter becomes full or “clogged,” the oil and contaminants flow around the filter. This “by-passing” is a safety mechanism.
As far as your engine is concerned, dirty oil is better than none at all. However, when by-passing occurs, contaminants head straight for the engine where they can cause permanent damage. Studies have also shown that fuel economy and emissions are adversely affected during by-passing.
Protect your engine by having your A-1 Auto Repair Professional change your oil filter every time you change your motor oil. Changing your oil filter time will help keep your engine running on clear, clean oil.
