Oil changes become more relevant in the upcoming winter months. In colder temperatures, if your oil is too thin the engine is not going to be properly protected. If the oil is too thick, the engine may have a difficult time starting. The battery and starter may struggle to get the engine to spin quick enough to fire up.

Many auto shops offer oil change coupons to limit the damage to your wallet. Along with oil changes, be sure the filter is changed as well. At 20 degrees Fahrenheit, the oil gets thicker and a high-quality filter will ensure that there is good lubrication to the engine and that particulates are filtered out.

During the winter months, when firing up the engine there will be an initial pressure surge. One must make certain that a new oil filter is installed to avoid blowing out a sealing ring, split crimp, or to prevent a canister from bursting that will cause a serious issue to the engine. Even if your vehicle is not driven in the winter use oil change coupons, since changing the oil is pertinent to keeping water and acid out which old and contaminated oil can gather. Be certain to run the engine for five minutes or so prior to storing the vehicle to ensure that the oil is circulated well into the engine.

Avoid spending your hard-earned dollars unnecessarily on oil additives. Multi-viscosity oil will contain the necessary additives that enhance engine performance when the temperature changes. Oil additives are not effective and can harm the engine if not compatible to your type of engine. Spend a few extra dollars on high-quality oil changes to ensure the performance of your vehicle stays in line with expectations. Follow the recommendations in the owner’s manual as it will outline the exact oil type that best aligns with your specific vehicle.
