Routine maintenance items like oil changes will help ensure that your vehicle operates safely and smoothly. Here are just four benefits of taking your vehicle into Quirk Chevrolet of Portland and getting an oil change.
- Improves efficiency
Clean oil improves the lubrication of the engine parts, which in turn, reduces friction. Reduced friction means the engine uses less fuel. This means that you won’t have to visit the pump as often.
2. Keeps the engine clean and extends its life
Old oil usually contains a decent amount of dirt and debris, particles which can damage parts of the engine. By regularly changing the oil and filters every 3,000-5,000 miles, you’ll help protect the condition of the engine and avoid costly repairs.*
3. Reduces emissions
When the oil is old and dirty, it can cause your engine to release a surplus of emissions. New oil, by contrast, reduces emissions because it is better at absorbing debris and other particles.
4. Enhances engine performance
As mentioned above, clean oil improves the lubrication of the engine parts. This will keep the engine parts running quietly and effectively, which in turn, will result in a smoother acceleration and prompter response behind the wheel.
