Change the Season, Change Your Oil

It’s time to change your oil in Metairie-New Orleans for all the spring travel and fun ahead.

You’ve decided to enjoy the spring weather by wandering over to Lafayette Square this evening after work for the live concert. Wednesdays at the Square is one of the many great things about the change in seasons in the New Orleans-Metairie area.

The change in seasons should also get you thinking about another change – your oil. That’s especially true if, like many of us, you’re not real good about getting regular oil changes. But making sure your get your oil changed routinely is the best way to make sure your engine lasts a long time.

According to auto.howstuffworks.com:

“Let’s say that your engine has plenty of oil, but you never change it. Two things will definitely happen:

“Dirt will accumulate in the oil. The filter will remove the dirt for a while, but eventually the filter will clog and the dirty oil will automatically bypass the filter through a relief valve. Dirty oil is thick and abrasive, so it causes more wear.

“Additives in the oil like detergents, dispersants, rust-fighters and friction reducers will wear out, so the oil won’t lubricate as well as it should.

“Eventually, as the oil gets dirtier and dirtier, it will stop lubricating and the engine will quickly wear and fail.”
