Why is it so important to use the correct oil in when performing an oil change in your car or trucks engine? Today’s vehicles have requirements for low emissions, high fuel mileage, and customers want high horsepower. To meet these requirements modern engines are much more complicated, with internal systems such as variable valve timing. There are actuators inside the engine that are operated by engine oil based on oil pressure. If the correct grade or viscosity of the oil is not used problems with how the engine performs can arise. This could cause a check engine light to come on. We have plenty of examples of fixing a check engine light. Engine driveability problems can be solved by using the correct oil during an oil change.
What can happen if the correct oil isn’t used
If the correct oil is not used the vehicle warranty could be affected. For these reasons, at G&G Auto Repair we always look up the manufacturer’s required oil specification for every vehicle when we change the oil, and we only use an oil that we verify meets that specification. We use oil from a variety of sources. Even popular brands of synthetic oil don’t meet the specifications of every manufacturer. Whether you have your oil changed here or at another repair facility, it’s important that the correct oil is used in your vehicle’s engine.
