Oil lubricant.We pretty much all understand the importance of getting the oil changed in our new or used GMC Trucks and Buick Cars from Thunder Bay.  Just because we know the importance of this process does not mean that we all do so with diligence.  Life gets busy and unless you make the service department of Thunder Bay a priority on your list of errands, you are likely to overlook your GMC Trucks oil changes at the proper intervals.  Today, on behalf of Dominion Motors, we are continuing an article to cover the steps involved when your new or used trucks or cars enter the service department for their next oil change.

We already covered the first few steps of checking the fluid levels and oil condition, drain the old oil and change the filter with a well-lubricated one in your Thunder Bay GMC Trucks Service Center.  Then, they will replace the actual oil.  Each of these steps is an important one, but the replacement of the oil is key overall.  “Following the replacement of the filter, the technician will put the oil pan back on the bottom of the car and reattach the bolt that holds it in place.  He or she will then refill the engine with oil.”

There exists a wide range of brands of oil, each with its own range of service ratings, along with viscosity grades.  Usually it is wise to simply allow your technician to choose which brand and type will work best for your new or used Buick Cars and GMC Truck needs.  If you wish to be educated in the process, “The service rating tells you which type of engine the oil is for: diesel or gasoline.  Thinner oil has a lower number and flows easily, while more viscous oils have a higher number.”  Whatever you do, simply make sure you remind yourself to have the oil changed at the recommended intervals.
