Oil Changes at Evergreen Auto Repair
Ever wonder why some cars last 300,000 miles and look brand new and others run rough and look beat up after only 100,000 miles?
One of the biggest impacting factors in the longevity of your vehicle is regular oil changes and routine maintenance. Regularly changing oil is one of the best ways to prevent oil leaks. As oil ages it loses viscosity and will actually start to eat away at the rubber of seals and gaskets. This greatly speeds up the decay of seals and gaskets. Many manufacturers have increased recommended oil change intervals. Over the years, we’ve started to notice that vehicles are not lasting as long as a result. The manufacturers are doing this to reduce the cost of initial purchase price, but the long term impact when following these guidelines is detrimental. We are seeing more and more issues with timing caused by worn chains. This is often a direct result of lack of oil changes[a][b].
At Evergreen Auto repair we recommend you replace your oil at intervals of no more than 5,000 miles. We using Napa Gold Oil Filters and motor oil that meets or exceeds your vehicles specifications.
Following a strict oil change schedule will pay for itself in the long run! Your vehicle will last longer and you will help avoid expensive oil leaks.
