Oil change stickers in window, again? Yes, again. With vehicles computers having oil change reminders built in, it has been a long time since we at Peak Auto have put oil change stickers in windows for every oil change. The newer the engine the more dependent it is on the right kind of fresh clean engine oil to lubricate it systems. We have written many times on the Peak Auto blog about modern-day engines and how oil is such a specific and crucial component in the healthy maintenance of your machine.
The newer your car the more sophisticated it is. Very simply, better fuel economy, higher performance, and longer lasting. In order to achieve all of these things simultaneously, auto manufacturers have had to rely on better more specific types of oil. No longer will just the weight 5w30 do for your high output engine. Now full synthetic oils and ones that meet the guidelines of your cars manufacturer are necessary. How do you know you are getting the right oil, come to Peak Auto.
