Importance of Oil Changes

Regular oil and filter changes are the most important and one of the quickest and least expensive car maintenance services available.  They ensure that the oil in your engine is doing it’s job of lubricating the engine so you don’t have metal rubbing on metal causing premature wear. At Pellman’s we believe most cars, if taken care of properly, should take you 200,000 miles or more. Frequent oil changes are key to maximizing your investment in your car.

Engine Oil Function 101

Oil works by keeping all of the metal parts in your engine lubricated so they can move freely. In addition, oil catches the dirt, acids and carbon particles that naturally occur every time you drive your car. When oil gets dirty it begins to act like sandpaper, roughing up and wearing down weak points in the engine. As it gets dirtier the oil can’t hold the byproducts in suspension and they start to build up at the same weak points, degrading the seals in your engine and plugging oil passageways.

How often should I have my oil changed?

At Pellman’s Automotive Service, we know the importance of regular oil changes from years of working on cars and from seeing the engine damage caused by dirty oil, oil sludge and low oil levels. This is why we generally recommend having your oil changed every 3 months or 3,000 – 5000 miles.  As driving style and type of oil can affect oil change intervals, we recommend discussing what is appropriate for your vehicle with our service advisors.

Does it matter what kind of oil I use?

Motor oil has changed a lot in the past ten years. Gone are the days when all you needed to know was if your car takes 10w-30 or 10W-40 oil.  You now have 3 options for most motor oils – Conventional Petroleum, Synthetic Blend and Full Synthetic.  Click here if you would like to read more about these options. As engines become more complicated, engine oils are becoming much more specialized by vehicle. Some car manufacturers may even void your warranty if you don’t use an oil that meets their specifications. (e.g., Dexos oil for 2011 and newer GM cars) We have the expertise and resources to ensure we use the correct type of oil when performing an oil change on your vehicle.  We always comply with all manufacturer guidelines to keep your warranty intact.

Oil Change Supplements We Recommend

BG MOA®

We recommend adding BG MOA® to your engine at every oil change. It’s what we do with our own vehicles. BG MOA® fortifies all qualities of engine oil, providing superior, long-lasting engine protection and helping to maintain peak engine performance. It prevents engine oil oxidation and thickening under even the most intense driving conditions. Modern engines run at increasingly higher temperatures. This, combined with the increasing regularity of stop-and-go driving, cause rapid depletion of critical oil additives. Without these protective additives, severe engine oil oxidation occurs. Oxidation reduces oil to heavy, black sludge in the crankcase, oil screens, oil passages, rocker arms and other critical areas of the engine.

After use of BG MOA, a premium engine oil additive with deposit inhibitors. BG MOA prevented oil oxidation and kept the engine clean throughout a 240 hour triple-length Sequence IIIF engine test.

BG CF5®

BG CF5® fuel system cleaner prevents deposits throughout the entire fuel system. Added after an oil change, it will keep injectors, pistons, fuel intake components and sensors clean and free of damaging deposits and corrosion. BG CF5® restores power and efficiency and protects against the harmful effects of ethanol.
