One of the most common maintenance services is an oil change. Every vehicle needs one eventually. Luckily, you can schedule at your convenience with our team at Standard Dodge in SK. An oil change is an act of removing the old oil that is inside the engine and replacing it with a new liquid lubricant. The job of the oil is to keep all of the moving parts inside the motor running cool. This prevents overheating and lengthens the life expectancy of the car, truck, SUV, or van. When dirty oil is left to run through the system for too long, it can cause a build-up of sludge and debris. This will lead to issues down the road with the various components of the engine. You can check the oil yourself at home. Pop the hood and find the dipstick. Pull it out and look at the oil residue on the end. If it is golden brown, it is still okay. However, if it is dark brown or black, it is time to swap it out. Typically, an oil change will also require the replacement of the oil filter. This is designed to prevent debris from entering the lubrication system. Contact our experts today to make an appointment!
