Why Are Regular Oil Changes So Important? Common Service Questions at Carlsen Subaru in Redwood City

Answers to your service questions

Your engine oil isn't just another fluid you have to pour into your vehicle to get it to run - it's one of your engine's most important lines of defence against the distress of operation. Your engine is made of rapidly-moving parts that create tremendous friction and heat. The oil in your engine lubricates these components to protect them from friction while helping to dissipate and prevent that heat. Over time, as the oil in your engine breaks down, it loses its lubricating and cooling properties. Check your Subaru owner's manual to see how often it recommends an oil change, and be sure to have all your preventative maintenance performed on time by a factory-authorized dealer like Carlsen Subaru. It's the sure-fire way to keep your Subaru running longer and better for less!

What Happens if I Fail to Change my Engine Oil?

At first, as your Subaru grows more and more overdue for an oil change, the engine will begin to run a bit hotter. This will rob you of both performance and fuel efficiency - and can eventually cause parts to warp, which can create major long-term problems. Eventually, the oil will lose its ability to properly lubricate your engine's parts. At this point, your engine will almost certainly grind to a halt, and may need a complete overhaul. Don't wait until it gets to this point! Bring your vehicle to Carlsen Subaru today for an oil change, inspection and any overdue maintenance so your Subaru will handle the next hundred thousand miles as well as the first.
