Oil Change

Routine Oil Changes are one of the most important things owners can do to protect the life of their vehicle and maintain its warranty.

Oil Change, Lubrication and Other Fluids

Vehicle engines have many moving parts that while in operation, move and rub against each other; this movement and the force of friction create heat.

Oil lubricates the engine, and absorbs heat, allowing the internal parts to work together efficiently without overheating. This protects against wear and corrosion, improves sealing, keeps the engine clean, and reduces friction to improve the life of your engine.

Routine Oil Changes are one of the most important things owners can do to protect the life of their vehicle and maintain its warranty.

Over time, engine oil breaks down and wears out. When it does, it becomes less effective at lubricating the motor, removing contaminants, and absorbing heat, so it must be changed. In fact, oil performs 5 different functions within your engine – it does so much more than just lubricate.

The frequency in which oil should be changed depends on many factors. Driving behaviour, operating conditions and climate can contribute to the length of oil change intervals. Manufacturer operating guides recommend relying on your oil life monitor (OLM) the range is usually from 3,000 to 16,000 kilometers. An average owner will need approximately 2 to 4 oil changes per year, we recommend talking to your service technician to determine what is best for your vehicle. Any maintenance schedule should follow the manufacturer’s suggested intervals to maintain your warranty. Further, many manufacturers require a specific oil norm. Failure to follow these requirements correctly may void your warranty. One final tip, winter is an ideal time to try a synthetic product; you will immediately feel the difference. Remember, most areas of Canada qualify for the “severe service” schedule due to our harsh climate.
