LEARN MORE ABOUT LUBRICATION SERVICE

What is it and why is it a good idea?

A lubrication service involves the changing and/or addition of lubricating fluid (such as engine oil, transmission oil, and engine grease) to different parts of your vehicle’s engine—in particular, the lubrication system. This system helps ensure that all the moving parts in your engine can operate smoothly and efficiently

 

During this process, technicians will inspect the respective oil reservoir. They will evaluate the appearance, texture, and smell of the oil to determine whether or not it needs to be replaced. If the fluid is low, they may add some fresh fluid to the tank. If the oil does need to be changed, the old oil will first need to be drained, then new oil can be added. You may also be given the option to have the system cleaned before new oil is added. The technician will usually replace the oil filter as well, if relevant. 

 

This is also a good time to have the other fluids in your vehicle checked, such as brake fluid, suspension fluid, and windshield wiper fluid. 

 

Once the service is complete, any old fluids that have been drained will be disposed of properly in order to minimize environmental and human health impact.

DOES YOUR CAR NEED A LUBRICATION SERVICE?

Depending on the type of fluid that is affected, different problems will occur. Here are some common signs that your vehicle needs this service:

 

  • Slipping Gears  

This issue is common in automatic transmission vehicles when the transmission fluid is low or old. Difficulty shifting is a sign of this issue in manual transmission vehicles. 

 

  • Leaking Fluid

A leak in your engine oil or transmission oil reservoirs can be a serious problem since low oil can cause your vehicle to overheat or not work properly—and even cause parts to break apart. It can also cause a pressure imbalance in your engine, moving remaining fluid into areas where it doesn’t belong.

 

  • Strange Noises  

Unusual squeaking, groaning, or knocking noises can often be a sign of a lubrication issue—especially if they occur during acceleration, turning, or braking. 

 

  • Indicator Light

Some lubrication fluid needs to be changed and replaced on a regular basis. Engine oil is one example. Thankfully, most vehicles have a convenient indicator light on the dash as a reminder. You can also check your owner’s manual for more suggestions on when to check, change, or replace different lubricating oils. 

 

If you observe one of these problems, visit a trusted auto service shop as soon as possible. Prolonging service could cause more problems in other parts of your vehicle.

DIFFERENT KINDS OF LUBRICATION

The lubrication system of your vehicle’s engine is responsible for many different functions, including keeping moving parts flowing smoothly, regulating temperature, and more. Here are some of the different types of fluid it uses:

 

Engine Oil – This extremely important component keeps the parts of your engine clean and moving smoothly. It also prevents excessive wear and regulates the temperature around the parts.

 

Transmission Fluid – In automatic transmission vehicles, this fluid keeps your transmission working correctly, efficiently, and cleanly. Alternatively, manual transmissions use different kinds of fluid, depending on the make and model of the vehicle. 

 

Engine Grease – This general greasing compound is used on most moving, or even rotating, parts to help prolong ideal use. This type of fluid does not need to be changed, just reapplied as the car is maintained and repaired.

The benefits of LUBRICATION SERVICE

SAFETY

Some lubrication issues can cause dangerous problems with the inner workings of your vehicle. This can affect your safety on and off the road, and even potentially expose you and the environment to hazardous materials.

PERFORMANCE

The moving parts of your vehicle are made to work in tandem with a lubricating oil. Using old, poor-quality, or low amounts of any oil can cause your vehicle to not perform in an ideal way, and can even cause various parts to be damaged.

AFFORDABILITY

Keeping your vehicle well lubricated can prevent many common issues and prolong the lifespan of your vehicle. This, in turn, can allow you to spend less money to maintain it.

HOW TO PREVENT VEHICLE PROBLEMS

After you invest in a lubrication service, you’re probably looking to make the most of it. You can do that by:

Use your owner’s manual to determine how often you should check your engine oil, transmission oil, and other parts of your car’s lubrication system. If you notice any burning smells, odd textures, or unusual colors in your oil (or if the level appears low), be sure to schedule a service.

Different types of fluid need to be changed at different times, usually depending on driving mileage. Your owner’s manual will have more information on when each fluid should be changed. It may also have recommendations for cleaning services.

Finding a trustworthy, reliable mechanic is the first and most important step for any vehicle owner. This will ensure that you have someone to perform quality service whenever you need it.
