Why Should You Change Your Oil Regularly? 

Your engine needs oil to operate properly. It lubricates, cools, and protects your engine's internal components from wear and tear. Over time, oil deteriorates due to exposure to heat and contaminants. If neglected, dirty oil can lead to increased friction, overheating, and eventually, catastrophic engine failure. Regular oil changes are crucial for the longevity and efficiency of your engine.

What Kind Of Oil Does Your Truck Need? 

At TireTex, we understand that every truck has its unique needs. We offer a range of oil types suitable for different engines and driving conditions:

  • Conventional Oil: Ideal for older models or engines with simpler designs. Conventional oil does not typically last as long as full synthetic oil. 
  • Full Synthetic Oil: Offers superior performance and protection, perfect for modern engines and extreme driving conditions.
  • Synthetic Blend: A mix of conventional and synthetic oils, balancing performance and cost-effectiveness.
  • High-Mileage Oil: Specially formulated for trucks with over 75,000 miles, helping to reduce oil consumption and leaks.

The Importance of Oil Filters

An oil change isn’t complete without a new oil filter. The filter captures contaminants and prevents them from circulating back into your engine. At TireTex, we use high-quality, manufacturer-recommended, filters to ensure your engine stays clean and runs efficiently.

Recognizing When It’s Time for an Oil Change

Common indicators that it’s time for an oil change include:

  • Oil Appearance: Healthy engine oil should be a clear, amber colour. Dark, gritty oil is a sign it needs changing.
  • Overheating: If your engine is overheating, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve got poor-quality oil. Without high-quality oil, that’s changed regularly, oil won’t lubricate what you need it to, hence the overheating. 
  • Engine Noise: Increased engine noise or knocking can indicate the oil isn’t lubricating parts effectively. This is generally an indicator of severe engine damage and isn’t likely fixed by an oil change. 

The Risks of Skipping Oil Changes

Ignoring oil change schedules can lead to several problems:

  • Engine Wear: Dirty oil loses its lubricating properties, increasing engine wear.
  • Overheating: Without proper lubrication, engines run hotter, risking overheating.
  • Decreased Performance: Sludge and buildup from old oil can reduce efficiency and power.
