Oil Change in Solana Beach, Del Mar, Cardiff, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe

Oil Change in Solana Beach, Del Mar, Cardiff, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe

Oil Change in Solana Beach, Del Mar, Cardiff, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe Here's 3 technical reasons why you should regularly perform an Oil Change in Solana Beach, Del Mar, Cardiff, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe: Oil is subject to high temperatures and, as anti-oxidizing and anti-wear additives break down, sludge can form, making it difficult for oil to flow and squeeze itself between moving metal parts. Viscosity modifiers break down after exposure to high temperatures, making the oil thinner at high temps and less effective at separating metal parts sliding past one another. Metal, dirt, soot and other particulate buildup in oil —much of which is too small to get caught by the filter— which causes the fluid to become abrasive, significantly accelerating engine wear. Over time, detergents and dispersants that are meant to combat those small insolubles break down, and ar ... read more
