The quick answer is no, not if you are doing it regularly and properly. 

If your car feels different, this might mean that there was a huge difference in performance before and after the servicing. The old oil might have degraded too much before the oil changed, or the old oil is of an unsuitable grade for your car, driving style or even your country’s weather conditions. 

So no, the car should not improve drastically after an oil change, the car should be performing optimally even before an oil change.

The physics behind lubricating your engine

If you have no oil in your car’s engine, the metal surfaces are rubbing against each other as you drive, creating friction and therefore heat. The oil lubricates your engine and keeps it from overheating. You can’t safely run a car without any oil in it. 

As the oil moves through the engine, it picks up dirt and water and becomes less efficient. It can deposit dirt around your engine and cause gunk to build up. This is the job of an oil filter, which filters out all the debris and contaminants in the engine oil, only letting clean oil pass through it. Hence during your oil change, you should also change the oil filter. 

Regular oil change and servicing

Changing your oil offers a lot of e benefits. Regular oil changes improve your car’s gas mileage. As the fresh oil moves through the engine, the lubrication of the metal parts ensures  your engine’s performance, and helps it run more efficiently with less work so it doesn’t eat up as much petrol. Clean oil will also prevent your engine’s many parts from wearing down and breaking prematurely, since they aren’t subject to abnormal conditions, such as excessive heat.

Schedule a service

Oil changes and servicing are not expensive, they are also not time consuming especially if you have an appointment ready at our workshop. It usually takes about 30 minutes. 

During your servicing, our mechanics will also check the rest of your car to ensure all parts are working well and that your car is safe for the roads.
