Changing your oil and filter are the most frequent and simplest forms of maintenance vehicles today require. Doing so regularly can significantly prolong the life of your engine. Oil serves a vital function in your engine: it lubricates the moving parts inside the engine and the oil filter separates the debris from the oil. Because of the high temperatures your engine operates at, oil will eventually lose its viscosity (it’s thickness) and has to be replaced.
Most manufacturers recommend doing this every 5,000km, which can be once a month or once every few months depending on how much you drive. The technicians at Halton Auto Service & Transmission can perform an oil change and filter replacement on any vehicle—and we’ll even check for leaks while we are at it!
