Oil Change Service

The ABC’s of Changing Your Oil

An oil change is perhaps the most routine maintenance we perform on our cars. But why?Oil keeps all internal components of your car lubricated and the oil filter collects contaminants generated from engine combustion and the environment.

Over time, oil breaks down and turns to sludge. Both time and temperature result in a chemical imbalance.

In South Carolina, we recommend having your oil and filter replaced every 5000 miles or six months. This will protect your engine and other components and lead to the efficient operation of your vehicle.

Many people change their oil and filter or have the work performed at a service station or automotive repair shop. It’s a relatively simple procedure. However, using Original Manufacturer Vehicle Parts (OEM) is far more important than most people realize.

Aftermarket filter valves may vary and create an oil pressure issue with your vehicle. The oil pump creates oil pressure and sends it to the filter. The inlet check valve prevents oil from draining back from the pump when your vehicle is not running. There is a bypass valve that is used if the filter becomes clogged which allows oil to bypass the filer and run straight through the engine. The pressure relief valve prevents the engine from building up too much oil pressure. Aftermarket filters can collapse and cause severe engine damage when the valves do not meet the correct specifications.
