Oil Change in Kokomo, IN
We Carry All Oil Types and Grades
Benefits of Routine Oil Changes
A regular oil change is crucial for ensuring the life of your car, truck, or SUV. Routine oil changes provide smooth performance and optimal fuel economy, but they also prevent the engine from seizing up and keep your car out of the repair shop, where things can quickly get expensive. When you don’t consistently change your oil, it gets old and can soon turn into sludge (also called oxidation), which will compromise your car’s gas mileage and performance if allowed to accumulate. Oil also collects dirt, debris, and other particles as it courses through your car’s engine, keeping it clean of harmful products; the oil filter is what keeps these trapped and away from the engine. Another benefit of fresh oil is heat absorption. Your car’s engine’s many components move at high speeds and generate ample heat. Fresh oil absorbs any excessive heat and keeps these components well lubricated, reducing the potential of friction and significantly minimizing the chances of the engine overheating. Changing the oil and replacing the oil filter regularly ensures flawless engine operation, which we can help with here at The Noble Mechanic in Kokomo, Indiana.
Types of Motor Oil
We service all makes and models at The Noble Mechanic, which means we are well-versed in working with various types of engines. It also means we know the correct type of oil to use for your car. Here in our shop, we stock and utilize the four main types of oil: conventional, synthetic, synthetic blend, and high mileage. The most common type we use is conventional oil, which suits the majority of light-duty cars with average mileage and a simple engine design. Synthetic oil is best for vehicles more tuned for performance, as it offers higher viscosity and is more resistant to oxidation and thermal breakdown. A synthetic blend is a mixture of synthetic and conventional oils with additives for extra resistance to oxidation and low-temperature properties. Finally, if your vehicle has more than 75,000 miles, you’ll likely be encouraged to use high-mileage oil, which is designed to reduce oil consumption and emissions and minimize the chance of leaks. Once we determine the type of oil, we will choose the best grade. The oil grade is the oil’s viscosity at an operating temperature, which is the ability of a liquid to resist flow, aka its thickness. The higher a number is, the thicker the oil is.
