The Purpose Of Vehicle Oil
"Can I check your oil and water?" - A familiar phrase from the petrol station at every fill-up, but do we really know why our oil and water are being checked? Most drivers will know that keeping the oil levels running at an optimal level is the best thing to do for their cars, but don't really know why.
Let's start with the car's engine: The engine is a complex and critical part of your vehicle, made up of numerous parts that work under intense stress. Oil serves as a lubricant for these critical parts to keep your engine running smoothly. It also cleans the car engine by transporting debris to the oil filter, preventing build-up in the engine, which would eventually lead to damage to the engine. Oil also serves the important function of keeping the engine cool or running at a reasonable temperature.
When oil gets old, it gets thinner and its ability to lubricate and clean becomes less. This could lead to the build-up of debris in your engine and set you up for unexpected costs like an engine clean, so an oil change from time to time is of vital importance.
