Did You Know This About Oil Changes?


Oil Change Service in Berea and Columbia Station OhioThe most important thing you can do to keep your car or truck running for a long time is to perform preventative maintenance on your vehicle, such as having your oil changed on schedule. With a full service oil change, your other fluids are checked and topped off so you donít run into problems from low fluids. Your technician may see a developing problem and heíll remind you of any other recommended maintenance.




Receiving an Oil Change at Parkway Express Tire


An oil change at your local Berea Ohio auto shop: Sounds simple, but thereís some pretty important things to know about preventing oil sludge.


Oil eventually starts to turn into jelly. Literally Ė petroleum jelly. Sludge clogs up oil passages and keeps oil from getting to some areas of the engine, causing parts to wear out prematurely. And that means expensive engine repairs.


Thatís why you need to change the oil and oil filter on schedule Ė to get the old oil out before it turns to sludge. Your manufacturer will have a recommendation for how many miles you can go between oil changes. They also usually have a number of months between recommended oil changes. Thatís because the detergents and other additives in the oil break down over time.


Your ownerís manual will have a recommendation for time and mileage, but you need to remember that itís based on using the recommended weight of oil. And if your vehicle came from the factory with synthetic oil, the recommended intervals assume you continue to use synthetic.


Also how you drive around Northeast Ohio can have a big effect. Most ownerís manuals will have a list of driving conditions that are harder on your vehicle. Things like stop and go driving in Columbia Station, short trips to Middleburg Hts., Brook Park, Brunswick, or Olmsted Falls, driving in very hot or very cold weather, heavy loads and towing. If some of your driving fits this, you may need to change your oil and do other maintenance on a shorter schedule.


This may sound complicated. Some vehicles in Ohio have an oil life calculator that takes all of these factors into account and tells you when you should change your oil. Otherwise, talk with your Northern Ohio service advisor at Parkway Express Tire about how you drive and get their recommendation for when to take care of your service.


Finally, if any of the steering or suspension parts can be lubed, your technician at Montville Express Tire will take care of that with a lube, oil and filter service.




Making Your Vehicle Last With Regular Service in Berea


Change your oil filter, lube chasis, and schedule an appointment to have your vehicle inspected. Strongsville Express Tire for oil change of Northeast Ohio residents. A lot of people in Ohio have older vehicles. Theyíre good commuters, grocery-getters or toy-haulers. They enjoy that fact that theyíre paid off, or soon will be. They would gladly like to keep their vehicles for 200,000 miles or more Ė as long as itís economical to do so.


There are plenty of people in Columbia Station, Brook Park, Middleburg Hts., Olmsted Falls and Berea Ohio, whose vehicles are running after 150,000 or 200,000 miles. We can learn from what theyíre doing to keep our own cars on the road.


A common denominator is that they never skip an oil change. That may sound a bit unsophisticated, but itís really not. First off, oil is the life blood of your engine and it needs to be clean to properly lubricate. Skipping oil changes leads to clogged oil filters and sludge that can damage your engine. Enough said.


Thereís another reason why the scheduled oil change is so important. Itís simple Ė a Parkway Express Tire professional is going to be looking at your car. All of your fluid levels will be inspected and topped off so they wonít get so low that damage can be done. If there is a significant fluid loss, letís use brake fluid as an example, your Berea technician can look for the cause of the loss and find the problem before it leads to an accident or costly repair.


Your Berea Ohio service technicians will also visually inspect the vehicle for worn belts and hoses, uneven tire wear, leaking shock absorbers and more. Problems get addressed before they lead to repairs that cost more than the carís worth. And your Strongsville service advisor will be able to remind you of other services that the factory recommends you get done.


Just think of that oil change the same way as you do about going to the dentist for your six month cleaning and checkup. Donít skip it.


Of course, good maintenance costs money, but itís far cheaper than new car payments.



Severe Service Maintenance Schedule For Berea Owners


Express Oil Change Service Some of our customers at Parkway Express Tire are surprised to learn that there are actually two service schedules for their vehicles. One is the regular schedule and the other is the severe service schedule.


Letís look at what the manufacturers say constitutes severe driving conditions, and let you draw your own conclusions:

  • Most of your trips are less than four miles (around Berea, Columbia Station, Middleburg Hts, or short trips to Brook Park, Olmsted Falls, Strongsville, etc..)

  • Most of your trips are less than ten miles and outside temperatures are below freezing.

  • The engine is at low speed most of the time Ė not on the highway

  • You operate your vehicle in dusty areas

  • You regularly tow a trailer, carry heavy loads or a car-top carrier

  • Stop and go driving

  • Driving in very hot or very cold weather

So you can see that a lot has to do with how you drive, but some has to do with where you drive. Some areas of the country will be more or less severe than it is here in Northern, Ohio.


For many, normal driving includes elements of severe service driving. So how do you know? Picture a line with Ďregularí on one end and Ďsevereí on the other, and make a judgment on where you fall.


If your regular oil change recommendation is 5,000 miles and the severe service recommendation is 3,000 Ė when should you change your oil? For some, itís closer to 3,000 miles. For others, itís closer to 5,000 miles. Your service advisor will be happy to have this discussion with you and help you sort it out.


If you drive where the air is dusty or polluted, fluids will become contaminated and filters will get dirtier more quickly.


So make an honest evaluation of your driving conditions in and around Columbia Station or Berea. Youíve made the commitment to take care of your vehicles, so it only makes sense to follow the right schedule.
