Oil, Lube and Filter Services Toronto & Etobicoke



Oil is the lifeblood of your car. If your car doesn’t have enough oil, moving parts will create excess friction and heat that quickly lead to warping. In extreme situations, your entire engine can freeze up. Parts can even melt into each other, rendering the engine useless.

Dirty oil will also lower your vehicle’s fuel efficiency, costing you more money every time you drive.

You can avoid these problems by getting professional oil, lube, and filter services.

Getting Your Car’s Oil Changed

Manufacturers have conventionally recommended that drivers get their oil changed about once every 4,800 km. Today, that thinking is a little outdated. Oil quality has improved so much that you can typically drive between 8,000 and 12,000 km without any problems. Some experts say you can drive even farther, but that’s pushing it a bit.

It’s important to get your car’s oil changed for two important reasons.

1- Oil doesn’t lubricate very well when it gets dirty.
2- Oil starts to break down, making it less effective over time.

Having a professional replace your oil helps ensure that your vehicle will offer you years of carefree driving.

Replacing the Oil Filter

Experts recommend changing the oil filter every time that you get your oil changed. It’s just as important as the oil itself. Mechanics know this, so they automatically change the filter when replacing the oil.

Why is it so important?

One reason is that some of the old oil stays in the filter even after you drain and replace the oil. If you leave the filter there, you’re still driving with old oil that can’t do its job well.

Clogging is another important reason. These parts can filter oil indefinitely. Eventually, they will get clogged. When that happens, your car can’t pump oil to lubricate important parts. You might as well try driving without any oil. Eventually, it will have the same effect.

Lubrication is key to preventing friction and heat damage inside your car. It protects the engine and other moving parts so that they don’t damage themselves. Even your daily commute puts a lot of stress on the engine. Without proper lubrication, it won’t drive for very long.

The experts at Service Plus understand that cars have different lubrication needs. Older cars, for instance, often need oil changes more frequently than newer ones. When you follow maintenance advice from our mechanics, you get more kilometers out of your car.
