Professional Oil Changes for Gasoline and Diesel Engines

Why Motor Oil Matters

Preventative maintenance is an essential component of vehicle ownership, and oil changes are one of the most important components of maintenance. Motor oil plays a crucial role in the functioning and longevity of your gasoline or diesel engine. Its primary job is to lubricate the engine’s moving parts, which reduces friction and wear between them; if there is too much friction, the engine can become damaged, overheat, and eventually fail. Additionally, oil cools the engine by transferring heat from the combustion chamber to the oil pan, where some of it dissipates. Thirdly, oil prevents the buildup of harmful deposits and sludge, which can reduce the engine’s efficiency and performance over time by carrying dirt, dust, and other materials to the oil filter. Over time, oil can break down and become less effective at lubricating and protecting your engine. This is why regular oil changes are so imperative. Oak Street Automotive offers quick and affordable oil changes for all makes and models, including gasoline and diesel. Visit us in Conway, Arkansas, soon.

Four Types of Oil

The type of oil you use matters. When you bring your vehicle in, we will reference your owner’s manual and assess its condition and your driving habits to pair it with the most compatible oil. Four types of motor oil are available: conventional, synthetic, synthetic blend, and high mileage. Conventional oil is the most common type and is suitable for everyday driving. Synthetic oil is artificially created to offer superior performance and protection. It is ideal for high-performance engines, such as diesels, and extended oil change intervals. Synthetic-blend oil is a mixture of conventional and synthetic oil. High-mileage motor oil is designed for vehicles that have exceeded 75,000 miles. It contains additives that help reduce oil consumption, leaks, and engine wear. Equally important to choosing the right type is the right grade. Oil grades refer to the viscosity of motor oil, which measures its resistance to flow.
