Changing oil : why is it important?
Having a car means maintaining it to drive safely but also to keep it as long as possible. This operation is clearly a basic of vehicle care and maintenance. Only electric cars do not require oil change. It ensures the good function of your engine, prevents wear and helps reducing fuel consumption. An oil change on a regular basis will allow you to:
- Prevent metal friction of parts and components
- Ensure a perfect compression of the engine
- Evacuate the impurities to deposit them in the oil filter
- Cool the engine
- Prevent premature wear of engine components
- Detect some possible anomalies
- Ensure safe driving
How often should you change your oil?
It's time to check the oil level of your engine when the ”oil pressure” light on your dashboard is on.
In general, the interval of the oil change depends on the properties of your vehicle: year of circulation of the vehicle, number of kilometers traveled since the last oil change and number of kilometers, type of engine (diesel, gasoline, etc.) and type of driving (sports car, passenger car, etc.).
The older your car is, the more often the oil change has to be done:
- Vehicles released after 1999: it should be done every 15,000kms for petrol or diesel engine.
All vehicles released before: 1994 for a gasoline engine and 1995 for a diesel engine must be drained every 7,500kms.
Moreover, don’t forget to also change the oil filter at each oil change and at least every 30,000 kilometers.
