Oil can over time be affected by heat if it isn’t cooled correctly. It can break down and become less effective. So, in warmer climates, it can be crucial to keep an eye on your vehicle’s oil to make sure it is still in the best of states, but if there are signs it has gone past its lifespan, it could be time for an oil change.
There are quite a few motorists who are capable of performing an oil change on their vehicle. However, this can be one of the dirtiest jobs any mechanic can perform. Then, with all the new environmental regulations, there is the discarding of used oil.
This in itself can be a real challenge. Our San Diego mobile mechanics can change the oil on a vehicle with hardly any oil finding its way onto the floor. Their service vehicles are fitted with the most up-to-date equipment that enables them to drain all the oil without having it pour from underneath the vehicle.
