Oil changes (oil, lube, filter)

At Plateau Motors, we provide quick, convenient, and reliable oil change services to keep your vehicle running smoothly. Our oil change service includes three essential components: changing the oil, lubricating key parts, and replacing the oil filter. These tasks ensure that your engine remains properly lubricated and protected against wear and tear.
Why oil change is important?

An oil change is a fundamental maintenance procedure that involves replacing old engine oil with fresh oil, along with replacing the oil filter and lubricating essential components. This service is crucial for maintaining the health and longevity of your vehicle's engine.

Oil Replacement

Over time, engine oil becomes contaminated with dirt, debris, and combustion byproducts, which can degrade its lubricating properties and reduce its effectiveness. During an oil change, old oil is drained from the engine and replaced with fresh, clean oil of the appropriate viscosity and grade for your vehicle.Example: Suppose you've been driving your car for several months without an oil change. The engine oil has become dark and sludgy, indicating it's no longer providing adequate lubrication. During the oil change service at Plateau Motors, the old oil is drained and replaced with high-quality synthetic oil, ensuring optimal engine performance.

Oil Filter Replacement

The oil filter plays a crucial role in trapping contaminants and debris suspended in the engine oil, preventing them from circulating through the engine and causing damage. Over time, the oil filter becomes clogged with trapped particles, reducing its effectiveness. As part of an oil change, the old oil filter is replaced with a new one to ensure continued filtration of the engine oil. Example: During a routine oil change at Plateau Motors, the technician notices that the oil filter is dirty and clogged with debris. To ensure proper engine lubrication and protection, they replace the old oil filter with a new, high-quality filter designed to trap contaminants and keep the engine oil clean.

Lubrication of Essential Components

In addition to replacing the oil and filter, an oil change service may include lubricating essential components such as hinges, latches, and suspension parts. Proper lubrication reduces friction and wear on moving parts, prolonging their lifespan and ensuring smooth operation. Example: As part of the oil change service at Plateau Motors, the technician lubricates the door hinges and suspension components on your vehicle. This helps prevent squeaks, rattles, and premature wear, ensuring a smoother, quieter ride.

Benefits of Regular Oil Changes

  • Engine Protection: Fresh, clean oil lubricates engine components, reducing friction and preventing premature wear and tear.
  • Optimal Performance: Regular oil changes help maintain optimal engine performance, ensuring smooth operation and fuel efficiency.
  • Longevity: By keeping your engine properly lubricated and clean, regular oil changes can help extend the lifespan of your vehicle.
