Changing the oil in your car, truck, SUV or van is one of the most important maintenance services. It’s the best way to keep your engine running properly. During an oil change, the technician working on your vehicle will also change the oil filter. If you live in Hailey, oil change service is fast and easy when you visit the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Center.
Why do I need to change the oil? When our service technicians change your car’s oil, they flush out the old oil and replace it with new, clean oil. Oil lubricates the engine, preventing its many parts from heating up due to friction. The oil also absorbs heat from the engine, which keeps it from overheating. Eventually, the oil starts to get dirty and can’t lubricate the engine and absorb heat efficiently. With inadequate lubrication, the engine parts begin to grind against each other, causing engine wear, which will lead to engine damage.
Is an oil change expensive? Bringing your car to the Con Paulos Service Center for an oil change, filter & service near Hailey isn’t expensive. Our website’s Service Specials include discounts on oil changes to help drivers save money on this essential service. One thing is certain—it’s less costly to change your engine’s oil regularly than to repair or replace a damaged engine.
Here are some reasons to change your vehicle’s oil according to the manufacturer’s recommended schedule:
Better Performance When a vehicle runs with old oil in the engine, performance takes a hit. Changing the oil will allow the car to drive with more power, and the engine will run more smoothly.
Better Fuel Economy If you haven’t changed your car’s oil in a while, you’re probably not getting optimal fuel economy. When old oil breaks down, the engine must work harder. It will use more gas, and you’ll spend more money at the gas pump.
Prevents Sludge When a car runs with old oil, it causes the engine to run hotter. When the oil is heated, it turns to sludge, which can severely damage the engine over time.
Prevents Voiding the Warranty Some automakers specify that failing to maintain your vehicle correctly will void the warranty. If your warranty is voided because you haven’t changed the oil consistently, you may face out-of-pocket repairs that the warranty would have covered.
Higher Resale Value Vehicles that haven’t been maintained properly are worth less than those that have been kept up. When you sell or trade your vehicle at a dealership, the mechanic who examines it will know if it has been well-maintained. Taking good care of your car, truck, SUV or van not only keeps it running in top shape, but it will also get you a better price when you trade it in.
These are just a few reasons to change your oil regularly. While it’s possible to change the oil yourself, it’s best to take your car to the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Center. We have the expertise and experience to do the job correctly.
