Regular oil changes are the cornerstone of maintaining your Mitsubishi vehicle and ensuring its longevity. Just like our bodies require constant nourishment to function optimally, your Mitsubishi’s engine relies on fresh oil to keep its moving parts running smoothly and efficiently.
At CMH Mitsubishi Midrand, we understand the importance of oil changes and are committed to providing comprehensive maintenance services to keep your Mitsubishi in top condition.
Why Oil Changes Are Important
- Lubrication: Engine oil lubricates the moving engine parts, reducing friction and preventing wear and tear.
- Heat Regulation: Oil helps regulate the engine’s temperature by depleting the heat generated during operation.
- Improved Fuel Efficiency: Fresh and clean oil reduces friction within the engine, which can contribute to improved fuel efficiency.
- Engine Cleanliness: Oil helps keep the engine clean by preventing the buildup of dirt and deposits.
- Extended Engine Life: Proper lubrication and maintenance contribute to the overall longevity of the engine and help prevent premature engine wear.
- Optimal Performance: A well-lubricated engine performs well, reducing the risk of breakdowns and improving the vehicle’s overall performance.
Manufacturer’s Warranty: Adhering to the recommended oil change intervals outlined in the manual is often a requirement to maintain the manufacturer’s warranty.
How Often Should You Get an Oil Change?
The frequency of oil changes depends on several factors, including the make and model of your vehicle, your driving habits, and the type of oil you use. However, a good rule of thumb is to get an oil change every 15,000 kilometres or as specified in your service manual.
What Happens During an Oil Change?
During an oil change, technicians drain the old oil from the engine and replace it with new oil. They also replace the oil filter to remove any contaminants that may have accumulated in the old oil.
Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Oil Change
- Use the recommended type of oil: Consult your owner’s manual to determine oil recommendations for your vehicle.
- Get your oil changed at a reputable shop: Choose a shop that uses high-quality oil, filters, and experienced mechanics.
- Keep your oil change records: Keep track of the date and mileage of each oil change so you can stay on schedule.
