Why a Simple Oil Change is the Most Misunderstood Maintenance Service

You know the scenario; you just started out for work and a car light starts to show your oil is low, or it needs changing. Doesn’t this always seem to happen at the most inopportune moments? You can ignore it and figure it might go away if you turn off the car and come back to it later, but you know it won’t and you’ve got to deal with it sooner or later. Industry experts agree that as soon as you see the oil alert, it’s best to head over to the car shop for an oil change. It could also be an indication of something else going on with your car. So, why is this relatively inexpensive, quick and easy to preform service universally dreaded? For some, taking the time off work is just a hassle and sitting in the shop reading out-of-date magazines is no fun. However, did you know that regular oil changes can prolong the life of your car by years? If you’re in need of an oil change in Delray Beach, bring your car to the expert technicians at AutoWorks.

  • Regular oil changes – crucial parts like crank shafts and connecting rods all work together to drive your engine to perform as efficiently as possible, and oil changes help to maintain other parts in your car.
