Oil Change in San Antonio, Texas

Ensure Your Vehicle Is Running Right with Routine Oil Changes

Any vehicle owner can tell you that oil changes are important—but do you know why? For an engine to properly and safely run, it requires the assistance of oil. Motor oil is constantly coursing through an engine anytime it is on, providing lubrication for all components to work alongside one another. In doing so, it prevents the potential for friction to occur, and consequently, severe damage and overheating. Oil is actually the main anecdote for overheating as it helps maintain a moderate temperature in the engine unit. On top of that, oil absorbs any dirt, dust, and other impurities and carries it to the oil filter for safekeeping. At Bravos Auto Care in San Antonio, Texas, oil changes are second-nature to us. We perform them regularly and efficiently on all makes and models. We also take care of oil filter changes, which are often recommended with every oil change and take no time at all to replace!

What Happens If I Don’t Change My Oil?

Without an adequate supply of oil or a dirty supply of oil, your engine will start to suffer. At first, you may notice poor performance or a drop in fuel economy. This is because your engine is having to work harder. Furthermore, oil will start to accumulate an excessive number of particles, which can cause sludge build-up (which is what happens when oil starts to solidify due to the particles). This results in oil that cannot circulate properly. Without oil running throughout the engine, certain components can experience damage, such as the bearings, camshafts, crankshafts, and other pieces. In a worst-case scenario, your entire engine unit can seize and require replacement. When it comes down to it, these consequences are just not worth skipping your routine service. Your owner’s manual will let you know how often you need to come in, which is often based on mileage and the type of oil used. If you’re unsure when you should bring your car in, or if you would like further guidance, feel free to reach out to our team!
