Car engines have hundreds of moving parts in them whose friction from working together creates heat. Oil is designed to lubricate parts and cool the area so the car does not overheat, but oil is only effective for so long, and after that, it’s time for oil change service. After some time and temperature changes, the once-sleek oil in cars in Boulder begins to oxidize and thicken. The result is a sludgy substance that can cause damage to the engine, an eventually cause serious problems with the car. Before oil gets to that point, drivers in Boulder should come to John’s Auto Care for a car oil change.
