Oil in a vehicle continually lubricates every single moving part. If it isn’t cooled enough, it can break down over time and become less effective at its job while also carrying around contamination that can lead to further engine wear. Before this occurs, you could do much worse than contact one of our mobile mechanics to carry out an oil change on your car.

The Crucial Need for Engine Oil

As well as providing all the lubrication for a vehicle’s engine, engine oil can help with the cooling. It is the prevention of friction though that is its primary function. The main area being the cylinders and the pistons. These are manufactured to the tightest of tolerances, and if the engine lacks lubrication, they can quickly rub against each other and wear dramatically. In a worst-case scenario, the engine could seize up, and they weld themselves together.

Mobile Mechanic of Orlando have seen the damage that this can do to vehicle engines, and for the sake of changing the oil and filter, some motorists have seen costly engine repairs or needed a new engine altogether.

As much as the oil is crucial, so is the oil filter. The function of this is to filter out contaminants and any minute particles of metal. If the oil filter becomes clogged, it can cause oil pressure to rise, and any weak part of an engine gasket can give way, thus creating an oil leak. Worse than this is, these particles make their way into the cylinders and are pushed up and down as the piston moves and scores the side of the cylinder. At this point, oil seeps into the cylinder and is burned along with the fuel. This can be seen from black smoke billowing from the tailpipe.
