For your next oil change, bring your vehicle for a Havoline express lube. Many take oil changes for granted, but they are important for the proper operation of your vehicle. A Havoline express lube comes with a 15-point service. What exactly is included and why is it important? Here are some things you need to know about the services that are part of your oil change.
- Change oil with Havoline® Motor Oil
Oil changes are essential to the proper operation of your engine and other parts. Over time, the heat created by the engine begins to break down the oil’s ability to lubricate. This eventually causes serious and costly damage to the engine’s internal components. Motor oil cools engine components by reducing friction and preventing the build-up of contaminants. Changing your oil on a regular basis with quality oil is necessary for a healthy engine. With a Havoline express lube, Havoline products are recommended for superior performance and protection.
- Change oil filter
This is an important step in getting an oil change. The oil filter catches the oil’s grime, sludge, and potentially damaging particles from the oil lubricating the engine. Without a clean filter, new oil will get dirty when passing through an old filter, leading to dirty and less effective oil.
- Check air filter
A clean air filter prevents debris from entering the engine and causing damage. It also promotes increased engine life, better acceleration, improved gas mileage, lower emissions and overall improved engine performance. A Havoline express lube provides filters that meet or exceed every car manufacturer’s requirements.
- Check brake fluid
Brake fluid is important for safe driving but is one of the most neglected vehicle fluids. Force from the brake pedal is transferred to the wheel hub by this fluid. It’s also a lubricant for parts in the brake system. Regular checks should be done to ensure proper fluid levels.
- Check and fill power steering fluid
Power-steering fluid is a hydraulic fluid. It transmits power in power-steering. Changing this fluid will prolong the life of the steering components.
- Fill windshield washer reservoir
Visibility is key when driving. A filled windshield washer reservoir means you are prepared for any unexpected dirt, dust, or other debris settling on your windshield.
- Check and fill battery fluid
An overheated or overcharged battery may need to be checked for water loss. Battery fluid levels should be checked about once a month to retain proper charge.
- Check cooling system fluid
Internal engine combustion creates friction, which creates heat. The engine’s cooling system gets rid of this heat quickly and efficiently to prevent engine damage. Keeping fluids at proper levels ensure adequate cooling.
- Check transmission fluid
Transmission fluid is a lubricant for the moving parts inside the transmission. Rough driving conditions can heat and breakdown the transmission fluid causing the transmission to shift gears slowly and rough.
- Check differential fluid
Differentials work with your transmission to deliver power from your engine to the wheel axle. Fluid transfers heat away from the gears, preserving the life and performance of your differential. Over time though, operating temperatures and wear can cause the fluid to break down.
- Lubricate chassis
If you hear squeaks and noise from your suspension, it may mean it’s time to lubricate your chassis. Suspension and steering joints can fail if metal-on-metal contact is not lubricated. This degrades the components and bearings.
- Check wiper blades
Worn wiper blades will not properly clean the windshield, leading to reduced visibility. Silicone wiper blades with durability and performance are available with a Havoline express lube. These wipers resist degradation from extreme temperatures.
- Check and properly inflate tires
Deflated tires can reduce fuel economy, cause more wear on the tire, increase stopping distance, and increase blowout risks. Keeping your tires properly inflated will lengthen the life of your tires, keep you safe, and keep your car operating in a cost-effective manner.
- Vacuum automobile interior
Carpets and upholstery gather dirt and dust over time. Vacuuming the interior not only makes the car cleaner but also helps with air quality.
- Wash windows
