Is your car suddenly knocking and grinding when you drive? Has it been more than a year since you last refreshed your engine oil? Then it might be time to stop by the Elizabethton Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center for a walk-in, full-service oil change.
Generally, experts suggest oil changes every 6 months or every 3,000 miles. However, drivers can usually tell when something is wrong with their car’s engine oil. Some may notice a check engine or low oil light on the dashboard while others may notice a steaming engine or a faulty air conditioning system. Others may be alerted by more alarming but less conclusive signals.
Drivers who are unsure if their car is “good to drive” should strongly consider speaking to a professional. Safety on the road is vitally important and shouldn’t be left to guesswork.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of time during normal business hours. No appointments are needed. Since services take about one and one-half hours on average, walk-ins are happily accepted.
The professionally certified and factory-trained experts at your local Quick Lane are always ready to provide extraordinary service for routine maintenance and repairs.
Grab a The Works oil change coupon from the Ford Service Coupon website, then head over to the Elizabethton Quick Lane Tire for a walk-in, full-service oil change.
How Do I Know When It’s Time for an Oil Change?
Strange sounds – An obvious sign that you may need an oil change is when you hear knocking and grinding whenever you’re driving. These noises happen when there isn’t enough oil to lubricate internal engine components. As a result, the components bump and scrape against each other. This can result in damage to your vehicle overall when left unchecked.
Strange smell – Engine oil performs two main functions: lubricating the engine and regulating its temperature. If you smell burning while you drive, it could mean there are oil leaks in your engine. Oil leaks can occur in multiple places at the same time. When the oil leaks onto the incredibly hot engine, it burns up fast and produces an odor. Not to mention, oil leaks imply your engine’s cooling system may not have enough oil to avoid overheating. If an oil leak isn’t the culprit, the oil could simply be being burnt up in the system before it can fully circulate. This can occur with “dirty oil”.
Strange color – Running your car with “dirty oil” can cause severe issues over time. The oil in your pan should be amber and slightly translucent. In addition to the previously mentioned functions, engine oil is also responsible for mild engine cleaning. The oil picks up small contaminants that have made their way into your engine. Over time, the contaminants build up and change the oil from amber to a gray, sludge-like consistency. Dirty oil isn’t a bad sign by itself, it just means the oil is doing its job. However, dirty oil should be replaced quickly to avoid engine damage.
Strange sights – Some steam is expected from your exhaust pipe, especially when just getting on the road. However, if the smoke becomes opaque or heavy, it could be a sign of an engine oil issue.
What Happens When I Don’t Get Regular Oil Changes?
Don’t panic, but you could lose your car.
Drivers should regularly check their engine’s oil levels and consistency and get regular oil changes at least once a year. When drivers aren’t sure if it’s time for an oil change, they should get one anyway.
There’s no such thing as too frequently changing your oil (though there aren’t any benefits either). When in doubt, it’s better safe than sorry.
So, what exactly happens when drivers decide against proper oil changes?
Most damage associated with oil-issues is caused by overheating. The engine can get so hot that components may crack, warp, have broken seals, or even melt!
Drivers may also experience a blown head gasket, having their vision suddenly filled with heavy white smoke while driving. Head gaskets are a necessary component for driving. Though it is possible to drive with a blown gasket, it will only result in extreme damage to the vehicle. Additionally, many drivers will find that the costs to repair a blown head gasket outweigh the value of the vehicle itself.
Finally, engines running at extreme temperatures as a result of oil-related issues are at high risk for engine seizures. However, there are other causes. For example, engine seizures could be the result of broken timing belts, excessive internal rusting, and broken seals. Though seized engines can be replaced or repaired on rare occasions, vehicles with seized engines rarely ever drive again.
