It can be helpful to think of motor oil as a vehicle component as you would your brakes or tires. It serves the important function of cooling and lubricating your engine. So as your engine burns fuel, most of the debris gets picked up by the oil. It makes sure the debris does not build up on the engine itself. That said, oil wears out like other parts. It wears out because once enough debris from fuel combustion accumulates in the oil, it stops doing its function. Since the engine needs to be cool and lubricated, not changing your oil will lead to excessive fuel use or costly damages. You should always stick to the prescribed schedule of oil changes for your specific car.
Fortunately, oil changes are easy at Motorwerks BMW in Bloomington, MN. Our technician will have experience with BMW models, though if you have another make’s car, we will likely be able to change its oil too. We can help you figure out whether your car needs an oil change. Moreover, we can usually take care of it quickly. Please schedule an appointment to see our service technicians today.
Knowing when you need oil change service can be the most difficult part since getting it taken care of at Motorwerks BMW is so simple. Usually, you can tell when you need an oil change because the last technician who changed the oil wrote it down on your receipt or on a sticker that they placed on your windshield. Likely, too, your car has a “maintenance required” light. Your manual should tell you what this light looks like, which is resettable. It keeps track of how many miles since your last oil change. Your manual will also tell you what kind of oil to use and how often to go between changes. It can also give you pointers for driving defensively. Defensive driving tends to cause the least damage to all parts, including the oil. By learning effective driving habits, you can keep your car on the road even longer.
