Vehicle engines have a lot of moving parts. As these parts move at high speed they create friction and lots of heat. Your oil lubricates the engine, reducing friction and absorbing heat allowing the internal parts to work together effectively without overheating. As the engine runs, oil will break down and get dirty. As this happens, it becomes less effective at doing its job. So it is important to change the oil in your automobile before it breaks down and causes major engine troubles. Clair Downey Service offers quick and comprehensive oil changes in Sidney and the Saanich Peninsula.

So how often should you change your oil? It depends on many factors, including the way you drive & how old your engine is. Many shops will recommend you change your oil every 5,000 kms. Some manufacturers might suggest a longer interval, such as 8,000 kms. If you use special synthetic oil, you might be able to go 10,000+ kms between oil changes!
