Don’t Under Estimate the Importance of a Routine Oil Change
Oil changes are certainly undervalued by many car owners and one of the most neglected automotive services today. With that said, the team here at Auto Clinic of Franklin wants to share with our valued customers the importance of having a routine oil change for your vehicle.
Why Is an Oil Change So Important to the Health and Performance of Your Vehicle?
Vehicles and their many components become more and more enhanced year after year. With the many advanced changes that occur, there tends to be a greater vehicle lifespan all with less maintenance for most vehicles today. However, with the hectic lifestyles and schedules we all have, people tend to dismiss routine maintenance of their vehicles which includes oil changes, as simply not as important or even not really necessary. This could not be farther from the truth.
Routine Maintenance for Modern Engines
Modern engines found in vehicles today are environmentally friendly and marketed as more efficient. Even with these advancements, you can experience significant problems if you simply do not engage in routine maintenance or proper care of your vehicle. Modern engines offer consumers fuel savings all without loss of power. However, the small screens within the solenoids of your engine will still become clogged with dirt and debris from engine oil that is dirty as a result of overuse.
When you have your oil changed regularly you avoid unnecessary problems and your vehicle will function near to perfect, while neglecting oil changes will typically present with a flashing check engine light on your dash over time. With this thought in mind, the team here at Auto Clinic of Franklin highly recommends that you schedule these routine services so you do not find yourself faced with a flashing check engine light and costly engine repairs resulting from the lack of routine care and maintenance.
