Oil Changes and Why They're Important

Getting an oil change can save you money and keep your car running longer at Weber Automotive | North Olmsted, Ohio

When you think of car maintenance one of the first things that comes to mind is probably an oil change. Not only are oil changes the most common form of car maintenance but they are also the cheapest. That’s great news considering keeping up on your engine’s oil is the single most important thing you could do to keep your car running smooth. Moreover, the engine can be the most expensive part of the car to service or replace. So why not protect it?

How Do Oil Changes Protect My Car’s Engine?

Most cars these days have a variable valve timing solenoid. This component makes cars more fuel efficient and gives them more power. However, these valves create a lot of small passageways for the oil to travel through which causes oil sludge build-up. The oil needs to run as quickly and freely as possible, otherwise, the engine runs on less oil which can cause it to deteriorate. 

Below is an animation showing the passageways in the variable valve timing solenoid, and the oil that can get stuck in them...

When to Get My Oil Changed.

The rule of thumb used to be “change your oil every 3,000 miles,” however, many car manufacturers have recently advised that their cars should be serviced around 7,000-10,000 miles. That is way too long! 

Weber Automotive suggests that users shorten their manufacturer’s recommendation by 20-30% or roughly 4,000-5,000 miles in order to keep their car engine running for a very long time!
Additionally, it is important to keep in mind what type of driving you’re doing, as it can affect when you should get an oil change. For example, if you drive severe duty (towing, hauling, cold weather, short trips) then you should come in for an oil change sooner.

Next time you think, “is it time for an oil change?” the answer is probably YES! It’s never too soon for an oil change and when it’s the cheapest maintenance to protect your most expensive part, why wait? 
If you have any questions on when you should get an oil change based on what car you drive, how you drive, where you drive, or anything else, contact us at Weber Automotive!

Fuel System Cleaning

What is fuel system cleaning and why do we need to do it? Weber Automotive has the answers.  Understanding Fuel System Cleaning  Regardless of what type of vehicle you drive, every gas or diesel manufacturer puts detergents inside your fuel system for cleaning. So, this is good because it guarantees your car is maintaining some fuel system cleaning component.  But over the last several years, a new type of fuel injection has been used to gain tremendous efficiency. This fuel injection is called direct injection. Direct injection, also called petrol direct injection for gasoline-fueled engines, creates a mixture by injecting fuel directly into the combustion chamber. In contrast, manifold fuel injection injects fuel into the intake manifold. Cleaning Your Fuel System  Keeping your fuel system clean allows your vehicle to be adequately maintained and keeps you safe on the road. You need to hook up a setup and a device that will push the cleaner right through the airstream. This allows any sludge or varnish built up in your fuel system to be washed out entirely.  If not correctly cared for, your fuel system will eventually need further repairs. For instance, you might need to take your engine apart, remove the cylinders, and clean out all the carbon built up over time. This would mean more money spent on car maintenance and that's something we all want to avoid. Discover More About Fuel System Cleaning  Our professionals at W
