Ford Conventional Oil Change in Columbus, OH

What Is a Conventional Oil Change?

If you're a car owner, you know that changing the oil in a car is needed, but why? What does it do? Why is it needed? There is more than one type of oil, but the two most common types for your car are conventional and synthetic. Conventional oil is made from crude oil and synthetic oil is made from an oil base, carrier oil, and additives. Extending the life of your car can be achieved by regularly changing the engine's oil.

Why Should the Engine's Oil Be Changed?

The oil in your car needs to be changed on a regular basis. Frequent oil changes prevent your car from overheating and breaking down. Oil is the lubricant that helps prevent friction of the car's metal parts. With a constant stream of clean, fresh oil, these parts can work together easily and effortless, which means a less chance of friction. Without an engine, your will not run, and your car relies on oil to keep it functioning properly. The cost of replacing an engine is astronomically expensive, but the good news is, engine replacement can be avoided by regularly having your oil changed.

What Happens If the Oil Is Not Changed?

You may think your car can keep going and taking you from point A to point B without an oil change. The truth is, your car will continue to crank and take you places, but each trip puts your engine at risk of failing, and then you have an even bigger problem. Without a regular oil change, your engine experiences wear and tear with increased friction, which is the perfect recipe for disaster.
