Car Oil Change
Changing your car's oil isn't just a matter of following the instructions for proper maintenance from the manufacturer. No two vehicles use oils with identical characteristics, so it is important to make sure you know what type will work best on yours and how often changes should occur.
A person might think they have an idea about how much their vehicle requires until they take note of all available clues-like body style or engine size! For example: there are different types designed especially as replacements in gas guzzlers but these would not do well at all if transferred across models without significant modification done beforehand such as installing high capacity fuel injectors which require lots more octane rating than those found naturally occurring within crude petroleum products like 95% ether 5%.

Why Oil Is Important For Car?
Oil is the lifeblood of your engine, it lubricates to reduce friction and wear. But eventually even high quality oil will start breaking down from microscopic contaminants that build up on its surface over time which reduces performance in various ways - not only can they gum up an engine but these chemicals also emit harmful molecules when burned with other fuels like gasoline or diesel (or Both).
Why oil breaks down?
From a distance, oil appears to be an endless source of energy. But over time and with continual exposure to heat, moisture or air it will become thick like sludge which can no longer keep your engine running smoothly at its maximum capacity causing wear on internal components
The deterioration depends largely on how well maintained the vehicle was when new as this determines what kind of oils are usually used in production by law makers around the world who regulate their industry accordingly
Do You Have Car To Be Fixed?
When you go for an oil change, What the the technician will DO?
When you go for an oil change, the technician will:
- -Change the oil and filter.
- -Check all fluid levels such as motor oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid and windshield wipers. If the levels are running low, they will add fluid to get them back to where
- Look for any leaks around the car, especially oil or coolant. If there are leaks, they will ask you to schedule another appointment to fix them.
- -Inspect tires and make sure they are inflated correctly. Radiator system is also should keep ok.
- -Replace Oil filters if necessary

How often should I get an oil change?
To ensure the best performance from your car, it is important to get regular oil changes. Most manufacturers recommend changing the oil after 3,000 miles or every three months. To find the best time for you, follow these steps:
-Pull out your vehicle's dipstick and wipe it clean with a rag.
-Remove the dipstick again and check the oil level against the manufacturer's specifications listed on the side of the container. If it needs more oil, fill it up to where you need to be.
-Check your owner's manual for recommended oil changes or consult your mechanic for additional advice.
What parts are used in pumping oil around the engine?
Oil Pan: The oil pan holds the engine oil. It is usually made of metal and has a round shape with a flat bottom to sit on top of the engine block. The oil pan may have a large plastic "sock" that filters out any large pieces of debris from getting into the engine. On some cars, this sock is a part of a drain plug which can be removed to let all the oil escape when it needs to be changed.
Oil Pump: The oil pump forces new oil into the engine in a steady stream at pressure above what is found in the rest of the system. It is usually located inside the oil pan and driven by the crankshaft. The pump contains three main parts: an inlet where oil enters, one or more pistons that push fuel through, and an outlet valve which allows oil to flow out.
Oil filter: The oil filter can be found on the outside of a vehicle, usually just below a metal tube that squirts fuel into the engine called a "fuel rail". It is made of many filters wrapped together into one unit. This way if one section gets clogged with debris, life will continue as normal in parts that have not yet reached that point. The entire thing is then placed inside a metal or plastic housing that can be unscrewed to replace the filters after a certain amount of time has passed.

- Remove the dipstick, Reinsert the dipstick and pull it out again. The oil level should be between the two marks on the dipstick (see diagrams).
If the oil level is high or low, add or remove oil accordingly.
