Time for a Change | New Orleans Auto Care

Time to change your car’s oil? Consult the New Orleans auto care pros at Twin Tire for a full-service oil change.

You’re planning to drive over to the Global Wildlife Center but you’re wondering if you should stop and get an oil change first. That pesky oil change light came on last night while you were driving home. You’re wondering if you can put off the oil change for awhile, or even if you HAVE to change the oil if you keep adding more when it gets low.

Well, yes, you can put it off for a short time. Or even indefinitely. But you run the risk of killing your engine and having to get your engine rebuilt or buying a whole new car. Auto.howstuffworks.com explains, “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.”

Of course, it takes many miles of driving with no or dirty oil for that to happen. But why wait? A New Orleans oil change at Twin Tire Auto Care doesn’t take that long. And the certified New Orleans auto care experts at Twin Tire will also check other car systems while you’re here. It’ll give you peace of mind and a longer lasting car.
