Oil Change in St. Paul, MN
Here at Buerkle Honda in St. Paul, MN, we live and breathe all things automotive. However, even we can think of at least a dozen things we would rather do on our day off than take our car into the shop for an oil change! Be that as it may, we know that keeping up with our vehicle’s routine maintenance needs is virtually the easiest, most inexpensive, and most foolproof step you can take as a driver to protect your automotive investment.
What is an Oil Change?
We believe it’s important for modern car owners to have a basic understanding of what exactly we’re doing to your vehicle when you bring it into our service department. And with a greater understanding of what exactly goes on during an oil change, we hope you’ll see just how important this seemingly menial maintenance actually is.
To put it in the simplest of terms, your automobile’s engine is comprised of countless parts that rub up against one another constantly. In order to keep these parts properly lubricated, thus cooling the engine and inhibiting corrosion, motor oil is added. Over time, this oil will require periodic draining, after which new oil needs to be added.
More About Motor Oil
Another frequently asked question is, are all motor oils created equally? The answer is no. Much in the same way that your Honda functions optimally when the parts used for repair are the same as the original, your Honda’s engine was designed to work best with a specific weight grade, or viscosity, of oil. Come to our Buerkle Honda service center where we only use Honda Genuine oil.
What if I Don’t Do It?
As mentioned earlier, routine maintenance is the simplest way to protect the integrity of your vehicle. In the grand scheme of your car ownership experience, routine oil changes are among the least expensive services you’ll need. However, regular oil changes can work wonders when it comes to keeping your Honda running smoothly and avoiding costly and inconvenient malfunctions down the road.
