Why do I need to service my car &
change my oil every 6 months?
Engines work through the
process of burning fuels such as petrol. As a result, non-combustible
by-products such as residual gases and soot are produced. Engine oil captures
and prevents these impurities from coagulating inside the engine and works to
keep it clean, but as it does this, its effectiveness diminishes. The effects
of combustion heat and oxygen in the air can also cause engine oil itself to
deteriorate, and therefore, it is essential that the oil be replaced after a
period of use.
Continuing to use engine oil
past the manufacturer's recommended drain interval can cause a build-up of
sludge, which could inhibit piston ring movement and in the worst case can
cause the oil to become sticky and tar-like, leading to engine trouble. Replacing
the oil flushes out the dirt, impurities, water and other particles that
adversely affect the engine. To protect your engine and keep your car running
smoothly, it is advisable to service and change your oil on a regular basis. The
recommended time frame is usually every 6 months or 10,000 klm which ever
occurs first. In high performance and modified cars, this can be reduced to 3
months or 5,000 klm.
