A badly lubricated engine affects your car’s overall performance. In the following post, we will talk about the importance of following your oil change intervals, how often you should change your oil, and whether there’s a such thing as too frequent oil changes.

Following your Oil Change Intervals in Queens County

Are you one of the people who use the windshield sticker as a reminder that you need to get an oil change? It’s probably better if you follow the oil change and service recommendations in your owner’s manual. As you know, oil is the key to keeping your engine healthy and lubricated. This post Amsoil4liny has prepared for you is all about your oil change intervals in Queens County.

Why Do You Need to Change Your Oil?

There are many reasons why you should change your oil. The first reason is that over time oil breaks down and loses its lubricating properties. As oil breaks down it starts to form sludge and collect garbage. Oil thins out over time and heat accelerates the process. Your engine produces a lot of heat and when you add that to the temperature outside, it’s practically a fire burning the oil. Oil needs to be changed to remove all that’s contaminating your engine. Synthetic oils last longer because their molecular structure is more even and stable. This means they’re built to resist more strain than conventional oil. They also have certain additives that help dissolve the built up sludge and all those tiny pieces of metal, rubber, and plastic contaminating the oil pan.  That is why synthetic oil wins in the synthetic vs conventional oil debate. Oil changes are necessary to keep your engine clean and lubricated; synthetic oil changes are necessary if you want this protection to last longer. To keep your engine in better shape get a synthetic oil change next time your oil change interval is up. Amsoil4liny has got you covered if you need to purchase AMSOIL synthetic oil and all the products needed for the change.

How to Tell If the Time for a Synthetic Oil Change Has Arrived?

There are many signs that let you know when it’s time to get your oil changed, or you could also follow some of these options:

Read Your Manual

There is a whole chapter dedicated to oil change information in your owner’s manual, and you should definitely read it. In case you lost your manual, many car manufacturers have free manuals available online. Your manual will also tell you about your services schedules. You will find there are two types of service schedules: a normal and a severe. The type you need depends on your driving style.

Get an Oil Analysis

A pricier way to tell if it’s time to change your oil is by getting an oil analysis. The analysis will tell you how you drive your car so you will be able to know which type of maintenance service you need. It will also show you the condition of your oil and if there are any problems with your engine. Along with your results, the mechanic will let you know if it’s time you get that synthetic oil change.

Pay Attention to Your Oil Life Monitor

Most modern cars come equipped with oil life monitors, some are more specific than others. Basically, what the monitor does is give you reminders of your maintenance schedules.  The most basic will light up when you hit a predetermined mileage range. More advanced oil life monitors have sensors that consider other factors instead of just your mileage to predict your oil life.

Is There Such a Thing as Changing Your Oil Too Often?

If you have the money to change your oil every 3,000 miles, then why shouldn’t you? Well, you run the risk of giving your car a heart attack. When you change the oil, you leave the oil filter empty. If you add some extra oil, it forms an air bubble and when you start your engine there’s no oil pressure for your engine to work with. Air is not a lubricant and it will take a while before all the air is forced out of the filter. Although your car could live on for a while with low oil pressure, why should it? Don’t get oil greedy, follow your designated oil change intervals instead.
