The importance of regular oil changes cannot be overstated. Changing your oil at appointed times is the single most important thing you can do for the health and longevity of your automobile. Oil keeps the engine lubricated and helps clean out impurities, and that keeps the engine running smoothly. At John Amato Nissan of Milwaukee, WI, we service all kinds of cars, and we have certified technicians using genuine OEM parts on vehicles we service. Our staff knows the kind of oil your car was designed to use.
All oil is not the same and there are choices to be made. Our staff can help you decide what is best for your car. Your choices include:
Full Synthetic oil works better in temperature extremes, and is more environmentally friendly as it does not have as many harmful emissions that conventional oil has. Regular oil also has some advantages and is better for some older vehicles. Semi-synthetic is also a reasonable choice.
Regardless of your choice, all oil does essentially the same thing. The oil keeps moving parts lubricated, so metal is not rubbing against metal. Oil also removes impurities and can help stop the buildup of sludge in your engine. After some time, oil will break down and will stop lubricating as well. The impurities will build up to where the oil cannot handle it anymore and sludge will start to build up in your engine. Eventually the oil will fail altogether, metal will rub against metal, and your engine will stop working. Failing to schedule an oil change eventually results in a worn out engine that has to be replaced. You could spend a couple hundred dollars a year on oil changes, or replace an engine for several thousand dollars in a few years.
