Ever wondered why a regular oil change is so important?
All New Orleans drivers constantly hear about the importance of basic auto care and regular oil changes. But do you really know why they’re so important? Of course, basic auto care gives your certified auto technician – like those at Twin Tire and Auto Care – a chance to catch problems before they become big. But it might be less clear why you need an oil change in New Orleans if you’re not running low.
Car Talk explains: “Oil undergoes thermal breakdown due to high operating temperature. When this occurs, the oil becomes less effective as a lubricant. And without a good lubricant (read: expensive), parts of the engine rub together and wear each other out.
“Oil also contains additives that have the ability to neutralize acids. Over time, these additives get used up and stop being effective.
“Finally, oil can absorb water, dust and combustion byproducts and also hold them in suspension. Eventually, the oil gets saturated with this stuff and can’t absorb any more. Then that stuff remains in the engine and can cause corrosion.”
Think of it as a way of keeping your engine fit – the way the stars of the WWE (who’ll be at New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center tonight) train. They’re fit, but they have to keep training, exercising and keep eating the proper foods to keep themselves at the top of their game.
If you don’t already know it, the best place to get an oil change in New Orleans is Twin Tire. Twin Tire has been New Orleans’ trusted auto care and auto repair service center since 1973. Twin Tire has three convenient locations to serve you: Marrero, Hammond and Harvey.
There’s another plus to Twin Tire’s fabulous New Orleans auto care. That’s the Twin Tire Rewards program. It’s free and easy to join. You’ll collect points for every qualified purchase. You can trade those points for more New Orleans auto care or trade them for travel perks. Or, you could donate them to a New Orleans charity like Cafe Hope New Orleans.
