Make sure you Change the oil and that you are using the right grade of oil too .

Change the oil in your car on a regular basis. When you keep the oil in your
car clean you reduce the wear that is caused by friction in the moving parts
of your car’s engine.

Keeping track of your last oil change will save you money at the gas pump
and increase your fuel consumption.

If you are reluctant or unable to change the oil in your car on your own make
sure that you fuel up at a gas station that offers you full service.

This way you can ask the gas attendant to help you fill your car with gas as
well as take a look under the hood of your car to change the oil.

Make sure that you are using the right grade of oil that is required by your
car or truck. Oil grades are measured in viscosity, which determines how
much the oil can resist flow. Grades of oil include:

0W (this is the thinnest) (“W” stands for winter)

5W to 25W

20 to 60 (60 is the thickest)

Check with the owner’s manual that comes with your car for more
information about the grade of oil that is required by your car.

Make sure that you use the right grade of oil to ensure that your car runs as
smoothly as it should in all types of weather.

If you find that you are always running out of oil when you need it you can
buy car oil in bulk at stores such as Costco so that you always have oil
available for your vehicle.

If you can’t change the oil in the car yourself ask a family or friend to give
you a hand.
