Many people know their car needs motor oil but they are not exactly sure why… Motor Oil protects the moving components of your engine from friction, heat, and metal to metal contact. Not only does it keep everything operating smoothly, it removes unwanted contaminants and debris from your engine. These elements are then deposited in your oil filter.

Once your oil filter becomes saturated with grime that has been removed from the internal workings of your engine, it’s time to get an oil change. Here at AASTRO Transmission and Auto Repair, we help you select the right motor oil for your vehicle and put in the correct oil filter. Keeping up with your oil changes every three months or three thousand miles is one of the most cost effective ways to keep your car, truck or SUV operating at its peak level of performance.

If you happen to go longer than the three month / three thousand mile interval before getting your oil changed be sure to check your dipstick regularly. This way you can put more oil in if you start to get low and check for warning signs that your vehicle may have other issues:

Your Motor Oil Feels Gritty (where gloves to avoid skin contact): This most likely indicates a problem with your oil filter or that it’s time for an oil change.

Sticky Clumps: If you see jelly like globules on your dipstick this could mean that your engine is developing sludge and should be inspected because this can hinder engine performance.

Foam or Bubbles: There are a few reasons this could be happening and should be inspected by a professional because the air that causes the foaming will prevent your oil from lubricating the engine properly.

Cloudy Oil: Means there is water mixing with your motor oil, this is a symptom of a larger problem and should be inspected sooner rather than later.

If you notice any of these symptoms or have questions, drive on in to one of our three AASTRO Transmission and Auto Repair shops conveniently located throughout Tucson. Or schedule an appointment online!
