As a vehicle owner, you can do many things to help keep your vehicle in great shape. One of the most essential tasks is to change the oil inside your vehicle at regular intervals. If you want to extend the life of your vehicle, it's important that you bring it in for oil changes at a trusted service station. Here at Thornton Road Hyundai, we provide fast, affordable, and quality oil changes for all our customers. Read on to learn more about the importance of oil changes and how Thornton Road Hyundai can assist you today.

What Does an Oil Change Do?

The oil change process is simple. To change the oil in your vehicle, simply drain out the current engine oil, then replace it with new oil. When you change your oil, it accomplishes a few things inside your vehicle. First, it helps to maintain lubrication within the engine. There are many moving parts within a vehicle's engine, and if they aren't properly lubricated, they could become damaged or stop functioning properly.

Flushing out the old engine oil also helps to remove dirt and other debris that may be inside the engine. It's important to regularly clean out the engine by removing this debris, as it could cause corrosion if left alone. New engine oil helps to regulate the temperature within your engine. Without good lubrication, friction from the moving parts could cause too much heat. This heat can then wear down more internal parts within your engine and eventually cause the engine to break down.

Importance of a Regular Oil Change

There are three large benefits you get from giving your vehicle a regular oil change. These benefits are as follows:

Better Performance

To get the best performance from your vehicle, your engine must work properly. Your engine feeds all the other components of your vehicle, and if it's not working correctly, then you're not getting the most out of your vehicle. An oil change helps to clean out any buildup inside the engine and keeps all the parts lubricated.

Changing your vehicle's oil gives you two specific performance improvements. First, your engine will respond better, giving you a better driving experience. An oil change can help your vehicle reach faster speeds and provide smoother handling. Second, oil changes improve fuel efficiency. Your engine won't have to work as hard, meaning it will use your fuel more efficiently. No one likes paying more money at the gas station, so if you want to reduce the number of times you have to fill your vehicle up, simply change your vehicle's oil regularly.

Improved Engine Health

Oil changes are an important part of extending the life of your engine. As well as being one of the most complicated pieces of machinery within your vehicle, engines are expensive to repair or replace. If you've ever had an engine break down in your vehicle, you'll know how frustrating and costly this repair can be. One of the more common reasons engines fail is when they aren't properly cared for. You can reduce the likelihood that your engine breaks down by scheduling regular oil changes at a trusted service station.

Higher Vehicle Value

Finally, oil changes can help you retain the value of your vehicle. When it's time to sell your vehicle or trade it in for another, you'll want to get as much for it as possible. There are many factors that you can use to determine the estimated value of your vehicle. These factors include the health of your vehicle and how well it has been cared for.

Many potential buyers will want a vehicle history report for your vehicle. This history report details whether your vehicle was in any major accidents, has undergone any significant vehicle repairs, and how often you serviced the vehicle. Most buyers are willing to pay more for a vehicle if it has a history of being taken care of and doesn't have a history of significant repairs. By taking care of your engine with regular oil changes, you can keep your vehicle's history report free from any potential red flags and get more for it when you decide to sell.

What Does an Oil Change Service Include?

When you bring your vehicle into Thornton Road Hyundai for an oil change, here's what you can expect. First, we'll raise up your vehicle so that we can get underneath it to remove your old engine oil. Once we have removed the old oil, we'll select the right type of engine oil to replace it. Every engine has different needs, and we'll choose the engine oil that's best for your vehicle.

After we replenish your engine oil, we'll proceed to make a quick inspection of other key vehicle components. For example, we'll make sure that you don't need a new air filter or that none of your other fluids are low. If we detect any issues, we'll talk with you first to ensure that you want us to proceed with the additional services. With our help, you can keep your entire vehicle running smoothly for a long time to come. Be sure to check out our latest service specials for even more ways to save on your next oil change.
