Oil Change Clearwater
Is your vehicle due for an oil change? We do oil changes in Clearwater at affordable prices. Some mechanics will tell you that your car can use any kind of oil, especially if it will save you money. There is only a little bit of truth to this. At Clearwater Auto Repair we make sure your vehicle receives the right kind of oil change at the right price.
Your engine is made up of many moving parts, and those parts need to be properly lubricated to avoid damage to your vehicle’s engine. Let’s take a look at a common oil, 5w-30, and what it means and how it breaks down. The first number is the viscosity, or the ability of the oil to flow, at 0°F. The second number is the viscosity at 212°F, which is the normal operating temperature of most vehicles.
Some vehicles in extremely cold climates use a thinner oil, such as 0w-30, in order to start easier. Many vehicles can run on this thinner oil in order to get better efficiency in the minutes after starting. The second number, the ‘hot’ number, isn’t one to play with. Using a thicker or thinner oil than recommended for normal operating temperatures can result in damage to your vehicle. The proper lubricating oil in the engine provides this vital protection to your vehicle.
Over time oil breaks down and becomes contaminated with dust, dirt and debris from your engine as well as the environment. When this happens, oil can’t do its job. Changing your oil and filter will help your vehicle’s engine continue working at its best.
