We love it when drivers bring their automobiles to our BMW dealership near North Andover for car repairs because we know they’ve chosen the best place to have their vehicles fixed. While we enjoy helping motorists get their cars back on the road as quickly as possible, we don’t like it when people bring their cars to our Jacksonville, FL collision center for repairs that could have been prevented.

When it comes to avoiding costly repairs in the future, one of the most effective things you can do is have your vehicle’s oil changed regularly in the present. As BMW dealers, we can tell you that making sure your car has fresh oil is like giving your automobile preventative medicine to keep it from malfunctioning down the line.

Oil does a number of things to keep your car running properly, such as lubricating the moving parts of your engine and moving heat away from your engine. As time goes by, your oil will start becoming gummy, which will limit its ability to keep your engine lubricated. Without enough lubrication, your engine’s parts will start rubbing against one another, which can cause severe damage that results in expensive repairs or the need for an entirely new engine.

As the parts of your engine rub directly against each other, your engine will have to work harder to produce the same amount of energy. The extra work your engine will have to do will drive your gas bill up in the immediate term because you’ll need added fuel to cover the same distances. Put simply, keeping up with your automobile’s scheduled oil changes is the smartest thing you can do to avoid high-dollar repairs in the future and lower your fuel bill in the short-term.

If you’re concerned that your engine may need some work or you’re worried that you may need another kind of repair, don’t stress! We’ll identify the problem, give you a detailed estimate, keep you informed while we work on your car, and get you back on the road as fast as possible.
