Having your oil changed regularly is probably the easiest, cheapest and most important ways to keep your car running well.
Think of oil as the means of life for your vehicle; lubricating, reducing friction, and creating a ‘liquid buffer’ between pistons, rings and the cylinder walls. It does all this while assisting in the cooling of your engine parts. The basic reason for changing the oil regularly is that new oil prevents carbon and varnish buildup, which would be lethal to the engine.
Oil comes with categorization representing its viscosity, which is its resistance to flow. With multi-grades, the first number designates the way the oil will stream when it is cold. The lower that number, the lighter the oil is, and the better it will flow in the cold. The second number tells the thickness of the oil in heat. A 5W-30 oil will flow as a 5-weight at zero degrees and a 30 weight at 210 degrees. The easiest and safest way to find out which oil is best for your specific car is to read the owner’s manual, or talk to one of our mechanics at Paul’s.
