Regular, frequent oil changes are one of the best ways to keep your engine in top condition and your vehicle running the way it’s supposed to. It’s a relatively quick, easy and inexpensive process, but don’t wait until the warning light appears on your dash before booking in to get it done.
Oil changes are one of several forms of preventative maintenance that don’t cost much but can save you a fortune in the long run and keep you on the road where you need to be.

Most people know getting an oil change is essential and needs to be done to keep their Ford performing the way it’s supposed to, but it’s one of those jobs that can be put off if you lead a busy life and think it’s going to be a time-consuming hassle.
Many different oils are on the market these days, and it can be unclear if you’re not 100 percent sure which specific blend your vehicle uses. By coming to Nelson Ford for your oil changing, you’ll know your engine is running as it should using the right oil.
The oil in your engine performs three critical tasks. Oil lubricates the engine’s internal components to avoid unnecessary wear and keeps the components cool. At the same time, they operate and it carries potentially damaging particles of metal away so they can be removed by changing the old oil.
If the oil isn’t changed, it becomes full of contaminants, making it sludgy, old, smelly and ineffective. It doesn’t work anywhere near as well as it did when it was new, and it starts to transport those metal particles around your engine to potentially do damage instead of being removed the way they were supposed to be with a timely change of oil.
Regular, frequent oil changes are like giving your engine a blood transfusion. They remove the old, sludgy, used oil that’s been doing a great job of lubricating, cooling and protecting your engine and replace it with a total dose of lovely, clean and fresh oil to keep everything working as it should. It can save you from much more extensive, expensive and time-consuming repairs later on that could result from damage potentially caused by not changing your oil when it needs changing.
