Do I Really Need An Oil Change?

There are so many ways to take care of your car, a regular oil change is where it starts. We at Primarily Japanese don’t want you to sell yourself short by not changing your oil regularly, let us help! 

Oil is the Lifeblood of Your Car

It doesn’t matter what type of car you drive, the oil is as important as a heartbeat. Without it, the parts of your engine can break down and leave you with expensive engine repair bills.

It is vital that you change the oil at the recommendation of the manufacturer. This is the best way to protect your investment and expand its lifespan. Taking care of the car you have is much less costly than buying a new one. Remember this, the next time you think about pushing past the oil change due date or mileage reached.

Drive With Care

Obviously, the way you drive your car does matter. If you drive it softer than not and don’t race at the starting of your engine or make drastically fast stops, you will likely be ok with the interval recommended for your car. If you drive your car much harder, make stops quickly, and have a heavy foot, you will want to change your oil more often.

Driving your car really hard causes more wear and tear on your vehicle. It will cause the oil to break down faster. Driving slower to protect your engine, is a really important reason to slow it down.

Quality Is Important

By now, you know changing the oil is important but honestly, it is not enough. You will want to use high-quality oil and filter. Our technicians here at Primarily Japanese will be happy to guide you in your options.

Just remember, the future of your car really relies on the way you take care of it. It may be enticing to want to save a few bucks, but it is better to choose better quality ingredients.

Keep An Eye On Your Car

Your own set of eyes is critical in taking care of your car too, not just an oil change can replace that. You will need to always check your oil levels in between changes.

Checking the oil when you fill up your gas tank is a great habit to be in. You should look at your garage floor as well to determine if there are any leaks. If you ever notice any fluid under your car, call us at Primarily Japanese right away!
