One of the most important services you can book for your car is an oil and filter change. One of the most crucial components of any combustion engine is the oil, and neglecting it can result in frustrating and expensive repairs.
What is the purpose of an oil and filter change?
Regular oil and filter changes are an essential part of routine vehicle maintenance. The purpose of an oil and filter change is to remove old, dirty oil from your engine and replace it with fresh, clean oil.
Over time, oil can become contaminated with dirt, debris, and other contaminants that can damage your engine and reduce its performance. By changing your oil and filter regularly, you can help extend the life of your engine and improve its overall performance. The oil filter also plays a crucial role in the oil change process by trapping contaminants and preventing them from circulating through your engine.
By changing both the oil and the oil filter, you can ensure that your engine is running at its best and reduce the risk of costly repairs down the road.

What Are the Benefits of an Oil and Filter Change?
By changing your oil and filter on a regular basis, you can help prevent tthe accumulation of dirt and debris from occurring and keep your engine running at its best. Fresh, clean oil provides the lubrication and protection your engine needs to operate smoothly, while a new filter helps to remove contaminants and keep your oil free from harmful particles.
Fresh oil and a new filter can help to reduce friction and wear, improve your engine’s efficiency and reduce the amount of fuel it consumes. This can help to save you money at the gas pump over time.
Synthetic or Conventional Oil?
Synthetic oil is designed to last longer, offer better protection against wear and tear, and perform better in extreme temperatures.
Conventional oil, on the other hand, is less expensive than synthetic oil, but it does not offer the same level of protection and performance.
Ultimately, the choice between synthetic and conventional oil comes down to personal preference and the specific needs of your vehicle.
At Superior Tire & Auto, we offer a variety of oil options to help you make the best choice for your vehicle and driving habits.
