5 Reasons to Change Your Oil RegularlyApr 23rd, 2020
One of the best things you can do for your Nissan is to treat it to regular oil changes. Not only do oil changes extend the life of your vehicle, but they also help it to run more efficiently.
Hint: That means more money in your pocket and less spent at the gas station
While it may feel tempting to ignore auto services right now, an oil change is particularly important to your vehicle’s health and should remain a priority.
This post will help explain why routine oil changes are so important to the life of your vehicle. We’ll also share why servicing with a Certified Nissan Dealership is the best route to take!
#1 Reduces Engine Wear and Corrosion
When your engine moves at high speeds it creates a lot of heat. If there isn’t enough lubrication within the engine that heat can create unwanted friction. If you don’t have enough oil, the proper oil, or if it has a large number of impurities in it, it will end up destroying your engine.
We always recommend referring to the owners manual for the proper frequency of oil changes your specific Nissan model needs. Our Factory Trained Nissan Technicians will know just the right fit for your vehicle and will have you back on the road as quickly as possible.
#2 Helps Cool Engine Components
If the moving parts in your engine are not properly lubricated, friction is created which will eventually cause your engine to overheat. This leads to untold amounts of damage and in the worst-case scenario, your vehicle may require an entire engine replacement. The proper amount of oil ensures your engine remains clean and protected from heat.
#3 Protects Aginst Engine Wear Particles and Sludge
Engines are some of the dirtiest places in the world as you probably expected. However, one of the last places you want particle build-up is in your oil. If you ignore regular oil changes, that build-up of dirt begins to corrode your engine. The longer it goes unchecked, the thicker the dirt can get, becoming a type of sludge.
As you probably guessed, sludge slows down your engine, creating heat and causing it to work harder than it needs to. When you have a routine oil change performed, a technician cleans our dirty oil and replaces it with fresh oil, helping to remove those dirt particles and sludge. This makes for a more fuel-efficient and healthy engine.
#4 Meets or Exceeds Industry Specifications
It’s been said a thousand times, owners that neglect regular maintenance appointments or “put-off” important work always suffer the consequences down the road. We don’t mean to be alarmists, but it’s absolutely true!
Using Genuine Nissan Parts in your Nissan ensures your vehicle lasts for years and runs smoothly. Our oil filters are properly fitted to your Nissan. They work hard to stop oil-saturated with harmful debris from continuing to course throughout the engine.
Choosing a cheaper oil filter option might save you money in the short term, but if it doesn’t fit properly, you’re putting your engine at risk of unwanted debris and corrosion. Which leads to more money spent in the longterm.
#5 Promotes Extended Engine Life
Routine oil and oil filter changes increase the overall lifespan of your engine for a variety of reasons. First, it helps ease the burden of overheating. It also helps mitigate excessive wear and tear that happens naturally over time.
Oil changes also help your vehicle run more efficiently. If left unchecked, oil can begin to become corrosive and your engine may burn through excess fuel, which means unnecessary trips to the gas station.
Finally, if you decide to sell your Nissan down the road, an extensive history of oil changes shows your vehicle was properly cared for which increases your resale value. While the extra cost now may feel burdensome, you can earn that money back in the future.
