Do You Need An Oil Change?
Oil changes are one of the most basic car maintenance tasks that a vehicle owner can do. Along with that, it’s also easy to determine when you need an oil change. Find yourself wondering if it’s time? Here are some things to keep in mind.
When your car is operating, transparent vapors are being released from your exhaust pipe. If you start seeing smoke released from the exhaust pipe, it could mean there is an oil leak in your engine and you’ll need to replace your oil.*
*If your oil is fine, please visit a K.A.R.S. technician as soon as possible as there may be additional problems with your vehicle.
When you pour clean oil into your engine, you’ll notice that it has an amber color to it. Over time, that oil starts to darken due to the particles it’s exposed to in your engine. When you see that your oil has lost its original color, it means that the oil is old and dirty and it needs to be changed.
Oil is responsible for lubricating the parts within your engine and preventing metal-on-metal contact. As oil starts to get old and dirty, it breaks down and loses some of its function. If you keep that same oil, those parts will rub against each other and cause louder noises in your engine. This usually occurs when you haven’t changed your oil in a while, so make sure to stay proactive!
