Over time, engine oil will leave tar-like deposits that can cause engine damage. If too much time has passed between engine oil changes, or if you recently purchased a used car and you want to clean the engine thoroughly, an engine oil flush is an excellent idea. Here are some of the primary benefits of getting your car’s engine oil flushed.
When an engine is put under a lot of stress, the oil inside of it will be prone to form deposits that clog the engine. If a vehicle frequently tows heavy loads, is driven in areas with a lot of dust, or is frequently taken for trips shorter than 10 miles, the engine is more likely to develop deposits.
Refresh a Used Car’s Engine
If you purchased a used car without maintenance records, an engine oil flush could end up saving you the trouble of engine repair down the road. Similarly, if you purchased a used car that was poorly maintained, an engine oil flush will remove buildup and extend the life of the car.
Extend the Life of Your New Engine Oil
Many car repair shops will perform an engine oil flush before every oil change. Otherwise, the new oil would just pick up the deposits and sludge left by the old oil and circulate it through the engine.
Ensure Clean Engine Parts
When contaminated engine oil is circulated throughout the engine over time, deposits and gunk start to cling to the parts of the engine. An engine oil flush cleans these parts so that they run smoothly and help the car achieve optimal fuel efficiency and performance.
