Why Oil Is Essential to Your Engine
At BTR Chicago, we are committed to keeping your vehicle in prime condition. One of the many ways in which we do that is through routine oil and oil filter changes. Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle’s engine, playing a pivotal role in ensuring its smooth operation and longevity for various reasons. Oil is a natural lubricant for all internal engine components, reducing friction between parts, minimizing wear and tear, extending the engine’s lifespan, and preventing costly repairs. Oil also helps dissipate heat during combustion. Engines operate at extremely high temperatures, and without proper cooling, components can warp or seize. Additionally, oil acts as a cleaning agent, capturing and releasing particles and contaminants into the oil filter, preventing them from settling and causing damage. Regular oil change services and quality oil are vital to ensuring your engine runs smoothly, reliably, and for many miles to come. At our auto shop in Northbrook, Illinois, we offer oil change services for all makes and models.
More About Oil Change Intervals
Regular oil change services are a critical aspect of vehicle maintenance—but what is considered regular? Mileage is often the primary consideration when determining when to change oil. Most automakers recommend changing the oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles for modern vehicles, but this can vary based on the specific vehicle and driving conditions. Vehicles subjected to consistent stop-and-go traffic or towing may require more frequent oil changes due to increased engine stress. The type of oil used is another crucial factor. For example, conventional oils typically necessitate more frequent changes compared to synthetic oils. The age of a vehicle is also important. Older vehicles with high mileage might require more frequent oil change services to compensate for the increased engine wear. When you work with our team, we will determine the best oil change interval for your car, SUV, truck, or van. We will follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and adjust accordingly based on your vehicle’s age, mileage, condition, and oil type.
