Oil is a critical component of making sure that your vehicle can operate safely, and helps to ensure that your car has a long lifespan. Motor oil provides lubrication to the many moving parts of an internal combustion engine, helping to prevent damage as well as the build-up of debris and other by-products as the engine operates. Because of this, oil changes are an important service that we offer at Master Muffler Bountiful. Having fresh oil can go a long way in keeping your vehicle on the road for longer.
The Importance of Oil Changes
While we often think of oil as a type of fuel, the way that it functions in our vehicles is actually more of a lubricant, which enables all of the components of your engine to work in conjunction with each other without locking up, jamming, or breaking. Oil reduces the friction between all these moving parts, which also helps the engine run cool. This is in addition to working as a barrier to protect your engine from dirt, rust, and other elements.
Old oil in your vehicle breaks down, over time, which makes it watery and gummy. This reduces its ability to act as a reliable lubricant, and gummy oil can even potentially cause engine damage. Because of this, at Master Muffler, we typically recommend that most vehicles get an oil change after every 3,000 miles.
TIME FOR AN OIL CHANGE?
Come into Master Muffler. We’ll make sure your engine is running smoothly with fresh oil, we’ll top off your fluids, and give your vehicle a 17-point health check.
When you bring your car in for an oil change, our mechanic first starts to drain the old oil from your vehicle. While that is happening, though, is where a lot of the work comes in. We do a thorough check on most of your vehicle’s operational systems to ensure that your vehicle is operating safely and efficiently. This includes checking the lights on your dashboard, looking under the hood at various parts, and checking underneath your vehicle, among other things. Once the oil is done draining, we proceed to top off all of the fluids in your vehicle.
Full Service Vehicle Check
As mentioned above, we do a thorough vehicle checkup when you bring your car in for an oil change. This is one key advantage that you miss when you do an oil change on your own. These are some of the components that we check on each vehicle that comes in for a Bountiful oil change:
