Motor oil is the life-blood of your engine—it lubricates all moving parts, inhibits corrosion, cleans, and even cools the engine by minimizing friction. Without it engine components would grind together causing premature wear and eventual engine failure. Overtime, the oil will become contaminated by dirt, metallic shavings, moisture, and even anti-freeze. When this happens, sludge forms that restricts the flow of oil to the engine’s parts. In order to prevent sludge and moisture build-up, oil changes should be performed regularly. At Lake Norman, we recommend you have your vehicle’s oil changed every 3,000 miles or 3 months, unless otherwise specified in the owner’s manual. Make sure to use the oil recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer in order to ensure maximum engine protection. Don’t know how to change your oil? No problem!
