A Regular Windsor Oil Change will Keep Your Car in Good Condition

One of the basic car repair services is an oil change, and it is a good idea to stay up-to-date with the oil changes for your car. The oil is an important part of the engine, and if the oil dries up then it can cause major problems for your engine. At MacDonald’s Automotive Supercentre, we are experienced Windsor oil change mechanics, and we can help with a basic oil change as well as other oil-related maintenance and repairs that might be needed.

Why Do You Need to Change the Oil on Your Car?

If you aren’t familiar with the mechanics of the car, then you might be wondering why oil changes are so essential. The oil is located in the oil pan located at the bottom section of the engine. All of the moving parts of engine need to stay lubricated so that they can move in the right way. The oil keeps these moving part lubricated and functioning correctly.

When oil changes are neglected, then it is possible that the parts won’t move as smoothly, resulting in a situation where the parts wear out faster because of the friction that occurs. Eventually, a lack of oil can lead to complete engine failure.

There are other aspects that are considered during an oil change as well. For example, the oil filter can be replaced in order to keep the oil free of debris and items that can cause it to gunk up. If you don’t replace the oil filter regularly, then it is possible that the area can get clogged preventing the oil from passing through to the engine.

How Often Do You Need an Oil Change On Your Car?

There are differing recommendations on the best schedule for oil changes on your car. The best option is to look at the maintenance schedule that you received from the manufacturer when you purchased the car. If you bought the car used or you didn’t get a copy of the maintenance schedule, then you can contact us at MacDonald’s Automotive Supercentre and we will gladly look up the information for the make and model of your car.

Commonly, oil changes are needed every 5,000 miles, or after four months. So, if you drive your car a lot, then you will need to change the oil more frequently in order to keep up with the 5,000 mile rule.

There are several reasons that you should contact us about an oil change:
  • You have exceeded the required miles or it has been over 4 months since the last oil change
  • When you check the oil, you see that the levels are low
  • The maintenance light comes on
If you have to choose just one maintenance service for your car, then it should be an oil change. Generally, this is the most common and necessary type of car maintenance service. Regular oil changes help you to avoid major engine damage. It is easy to have your oil changed, it is a fast service, and very inexpensive.

Scheduling a Winsor Oil Change for Your Car

Most people find a car mechanic by searching for locations near their home, for the convenience of taking their car to a nearby location. You can choose to drop off the car for a few hours, or you can wait in the office while your oil is being changed.

We understand that you are busy, which is why we strive to provide a fast oil change service every time you visit our shop. If you want to work with a mechanic that you can trust, then we invite you to contact us at MacDonald’s Automotive Supercentre. Many customers call to schedule an appointment, or sometimes our customers will walk in to drop off the car when it is convenient for them.

Types of Oil Change Services that are Available

When you bring in your car for an oil change service, we will talk with you about several options that are available. For example, you can choose between regular or synthetic oil, depending on the needs of your car. We will consider the age of your car, the type of car that you are driving, and any other unique needs that need to be looked at. Many people choose the synthetic oil because it has better lubrication properties and it is a cost effective option since it doesn’t need to be replaced as frequently.

During the oil change service, we will also inspect the other fluids within the car and make sure that everything is in good working order. The Windsor oil change service is a great opportunity for us to get under the hood and see if there is anything else that needs to be addressed.
