Why is Engine Oil Replacement Important?

Engine oil ensures that the engine and its components work continuously and smoothly. Moreover, it reduces friction by preventing the mechanical parts from rubbing or brushing with one another, which can result in engine overheating and severe part damage. Over time, the engine oil becomes sludgy and fails to lubricate the powertrain system, consequently affecting the overall health and performance of your vehicle. If not replaced regularly, this can lead to reduced engine power and even engine failure, which can be costly to repair. Moreover, regular engine oil replacement ensures that your Toyota’s engine remains clean, cool, and well-lubricated, leading to improved fuel efficiency, reduced emissions, and extended engine life. 

When to Get an Engine Oil Change? 

The experienced technicians at Charlesglen Toyota strongly recommend getting an oil flush once every three months or as soon as you cover 6,000 to 8,000 kilometres. If you regularly drive through challenging terrain or long routes, you should get engine oil replacement frequently to enjoy better fuel economy and higher mileage. The impact of engine oil replacement on your vehicle’s performance is significant, and we encourage you to take this service seriously. If you still have doubts about when to get an oil change, please refer to the owner’s manual, as it will have the proper information about oil changes for the make and model of your Toyota.
