I recently purchased a classic car. What can I do to make sure the engine will last longer? I just bought a used car and I don’t know if the previous owner kept up with regular oil changes. How can I make sure my car engine is clean? These are just a couple of the reasons why someone would be interested in having a car engine cleaning service.
Over time, your engine can develop sludge, which leads to reduced horsepower and performance, and ultimately a shorter engine life.
Infrequent oil changes, combined with stop and go driving can cause a sludge to form inside the car engine and on its parts. A formation of sludge can lead to problems such as reduced oil circulation, restricted oil passages. It can also cause sticky valves, lifters and piston rings. These symptoms can also occur just by having a car that has a lot of miles on the engine, 75,000 or more.
When anyone comes into our shop and has noticed any of these symptoms going on with their car, we will usually recommend an engine cleaning service. An engine cleaning service uses pressure to eliminate virtually all of the old motor oil in your engine-rather than relying completely on gravity to drain the oil. A skilled technician will remove the old oil filter and attach the engine oil system cleaning equipment to your car. This equipment will circulate the existing motor oil and the engine cleaner through a filter and remove the sludge and contaminants from your car engine. After all the contaminants have been removed, then our technician will install a new oil filter and refill it with fresh motor oil.
After you’ve had a car engine cleaning service, maintaining regular oil changes at recommended intervals will help you keep your car engine clean.
