The little stickers that mechanics put on your windshield isn’t just there to decorate your car. Oil change is an important task we need to do the moment we buy or acquire a car.
Vehicles function with elements and gears rubbing onto each other to create energy and motion. These parts need oil to lubricate the so-called instruments. Over time, the engine demand for oil is too much that it eventually breaks down the chemical make-up of the oil, thus making it less effective. If left untreated, the lack of lubrication will leave engine parts rubbing on to each other therefore creating critical damage. Hence, the old oil needs to be drained so that fresh oil can be injected.
Oil filter is designed to remove contaminants from engine oil, transmission oil, lubricating oil or hydraulic oil.
As explained above, particles (dust, dirt, debris) can cause degradation of lubricated components. Oil Filters help the ingression of the particles before it could start any major problems
Most people think that having their air filter changed is not at important as say, having an oil change. We have one logical explanation for that. Air filter functions as well, for lack of better term, a “filter”!
The right amount of fuel and air is needed to operate an internal combustion engine. Petrol or Diesel fuels won’t be able to burn properly without air (oxygen), now the air that the engine will use needs to be “cleaned” before it enters the engine, or else dirt, dust and debris will amass which results to poor performance. A worn out filter won’t be able to “trap” these elements effectively and will make their way inside the engine, they will rub on important metal parts causing them to wear away and eventually replaced.
Confused as to when you should change your oil and your filters? Check with your vehicle manufacturer’s book, this article or ask our friendly Roverworks trained mechanics.
The importance of having your aircon checked goes beyond the issue of safety and vehicle longevity. It is also good for the environment. As you know, any refrigerant gas is harmful to the already thinning ozone layer, and any other gas that is haphazardly released contributes to this as well.
Here at Roverworks, we test your system for leaks, diagnose any faults, and if all is well, recharge the gas. We also ensure put the correct oil in the system to keep your compressor healthy.
Roverworks is compliant with the Refrigerant Trading Authority AU45590.
One other handy thing we do is add a product that glows under ultraviolet light – this way if you ever get a leak, we can look for where it came from by looking for the glowing traces of the UV product around the leak. This is our standard $240 Air conditioner service.
