Do You Worry About Your Motor Oil Change Going Wrong?

By Jess Hull

In order for an engine to live any kind of life, motor oil changes prove to be a bare necessity. But what is considered too little or too much when it comes to engine maintenance?

So I have to ask, when you read following questions… is this you?

Do you have a phobia of allowing anyone else to care for your vehicle because of the possibility that some irreparable damage may occur?

When that puff of blue smoke that is coughed up by your tailpipe catches your attention are you instantly thinking “damn, piston ring wear is taking a toll on my engine and I’m burning my precious expensive oil, not to mention the cost of major engine repairs?

Have you ever worried that your spouse is driving around town with the engine light on, and that she’ll keep on truckin’ until the engine simply dies (feel free to get a kick out of asking him/her tonight if they know what to actually do when the oil light does come on…you may be surprised!)?

If you let someone change your oil you sense they are going to really screw up and either put too much oil in your engine or too little oil. You’ll end up with your engine foaming or your motor starving when romping around corners.

If they (the 16 year old mechanic) get the oil level right then you worry about cross threading your motor oil drain pan plug or even worse… or worse they forget to put the oil plug on (your oil change could be catastrophic in about 5 minutes).

Even though aftermarket parts are priced affordably right now, they aren’t worth a dime compared to OEM equipment, and who can afford that?

Vehicles will outlive you, so long as you maintain them properly (and teach your offspring how to take care of yours when you’re gone).

What if your oil were as clean and clear when it was drained as it was the moment it was put in?

And what about Mobil 1 Synthetic, Royal Purple or AMSOIL…are they you’re top choices for engine performance and protection but you can’t quite believe it yet?

If your answer was yes to just one of these questions (or more) then you’re likely a preventative maintenance freak! Never forget that changing your oil and all of your filters is the number one priority for preventive maintenance.
