Failure to change your oil filter at regular intervals will cause your filter to become plugged causing tremendous long-term damage and straining your engine.
Regular oil changes can save you money as it will protect your engine from wear and potential failure.
Regular car maintenance & oil changes are important factors in extending the life of your vehicle. For the best performance, we recommend an oil and filter change every three months or 4,000 kilometres in vehicles with gasoline engines.
Engine Oil performs the following functions in an engine:
- Lubricates moving parts within the engine by producing a protective layer that allows movement.
- Helps cool the engine by transferring excess heat from the combustion area.
- Helps maintain clean engine parts thus free from harmful deposits such as 'sludge' by suspending contaminants and eliminating corrosive acids.
- Prevent wear by making a chemical bond that prevents metal-to-metal contact.
- Creates a seal between the engine piston rings and cylinder walls to prevent blow-by and loss of power.
Air Filter Changes
|Panel Style Air Filter New filters should be free of rips, tears, punctures and excess contamination. Filters should be dry and the edges should be straight. Inspect filter media for tears, rips or punctures, which can create paths for contaminants to enter the engine.
||Contaminated & Collapsed Air Filter Inspect the filter media for excess contaminant accumulation, which can restrict airflow to the engine. Should the air filter become completely restrictive to airflow, it may collapse inward on itself. Filter collapse not only destroys the filter, it also allows free bypass of contaminants into the engine.
||Moistened Air Filter Inspect the filter for wavy pleats, which can indicate possible moisture in the air intake system. Excess moisture in the air intake system can damage the filter and reduce its performance.
||Pinched Air Filter Carefully inspect the filter's rubber seal for signs of being pinched in the filter housing. A pinched seal indicates the filter may have been improperly installed, which can cause excess contaminants to bypass the filter and enter the engine.
