How Oil Works With Your Car's Engine

Our oil change coupon is among the most important Ford service specials that we offer and here's why! 

 Oil fulfills many roles, all of which are vital to keeping your vehicle's engine healthy and happy. From providing proper lubrication to  reducing heat and flushing out debris, oil takes is essentially the lifeblood of your vehicle. Whether you have conventional or synthetic oil, it will eventually reach a point when it no longer functions properly and will need to be replaced.

Why is it so important to change your oil on time? Oil loses viscosity after a certain period of use, becoming thin and runny to the point that it can't keep the engine and its components properly sealed and lubricated. In addition, it becomes dirty and contaminated with debris. Once it's reached this point of expiration, oil can't cool, clean or lubricate like fresh oil can, and ignoring it for too long will begin to wear down the engine.
