Oil and Filter Change.
Motor oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It picks up dirt, particles and other impurities and deposits them in the oil filter to keep your engine clean. Routine oil changes keep all the moving parts moving, and cut down on friction to cool the motor so your vehicle keeps running longer.
Oil and Filters
When do you need to get serviced / changed :
- If engine won't start at all or stall frequently, its time to look at your fuel filter.
- If engine would produce knocking sound and will not run efficiently at hight speeds, fule filter may be clogged.
- If there is a lack of flow from air vents, air filter is dirty.
- If oil looks thick, sticky, dark and dirty, its time to change the oil filter.
Engine oil acts as a Lubricant, Coolant and Suface Cleaner in the vital systems of car. It forms a lubricating viscous layer over the moving parts so that they don't wear out by rubbing over each other. It acts as a coolant by dissipating the heat generated in the Combustion process as well as due to the friction between the parts.
Over a time period, the oil loses its viscosity due to frequent heating and cooling. It also gets contaminated by the impurities and debris generated. Thats when is the time to get the oil replaced.
Now, when should one know that its time for an oil change before its get too late and the car breaks down on the road. The rule of thumb says, the oil should be replaced every 5000 km. But it also varies on the weather conditions, driving styles etc.
At Alberta Auto Center, our technicians do the normal check-ups and replace the oil if necessary. We also keep a log of your oil change frequency so that an efficient schedule can be arrived at to replace the oil.
Regular filter servicing and replacements is inexpensive and prevents frequent car break-downs. It, in fact is more affordable and keeps your car in perfect shape.
Oil Filter :
The Oil Filter works to prevent, metal and rust particles and other debris from contaminating the oil so that it performs the function of lubricating and cooling the moving parts. It prevents the sludge formation which would block the carburetor and seize the moving of the parts.
Air Filter :
The Air Filter keeps bacteria, pollen, dust particles, fumes out of ventilation system. It keeps the Air fresh and odourless, improves the air conditioning performance. It also helps in improving the mileage.
Its essential to keep all the filters properly clean and fresh. Our team performs these tasks quite efficiently, cleaning the filters or replacing them at the proper time. Clean filters add to the increased efficiency of the systems and provide a clean and fresh experience to the passengers.
