Oil Change Service in Escondido, CA
Importance Of Your Oil Change Service
In need of quality oil change service in Escondido, CA? Well, getting an oil change is key to keeping your vehicle running for the long term. Waiting to get your vehicle’s oil changed puts your engine at risk. Getting an oil change on a regular basis helps to clean out debris and keep your engine from overheating. Make sure to get your vehicle’s oil changed on a regular basis so that your engine can stay in top condition.
High Mileage Vehicle Oil Change Service
It is even more important with a vehicle past 100,000 miles for regularly scheduled oil changes. With the number of vehicles that have over 100,000 miles on the road is getting more common to see failed engines starved of oil. The most common culprit is vehicles that burn oil excessively. We recommend starting doing oil changes more frequently for the longevity of your engine.
Vehicles Burning Oil Are Not Created Equal
Burning oil is a common problem, there is no guide on this issue, so what might be normal for one engine could be excessive for another. BMW tells owners it’s normal for some of its engines to burn a quart of oil in fewer than a thousand miles. In a tip sheet to fleet-vehicle operators, GM says normal consumption “can be in the range of one quart within 2,000 miles on a properly driven and maintained vehicle.” Other manufacturers say nothing in their owner’s manuals about oil consumption — and if you ask what’s “normal,” the answer you get may depend on whom you talk to.
As a rule, most engines with fewer than 50,000 miles shouldn’t use much more than a quart of oil between oil changes (unless the manufacturer says differently). If an engine requires a quart every, say, 3,000 miles or less, that could be a sign of a leak (which may not be easily visible) or of internal engine problems, such as worn valve guides, piston rings or any of a number of different types of seals. Once an engine gets beyond perhaps 75,000 miles, and certainly past 100,000, increased oil consumption should be expected.
In addition, many newer engines use thinner, lower-viscosity oil, such as 5W20 or 0W20 instead of, say, 10W30. Because these oils are thinner, it’s easier for them to slip past gaskets, seals, and rings that have worn even slightly over time, thus increasing oil consumption.
