FUEL SYSTEM SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE IN NEW WESTMINSTER/BURNABY
Your vehicle's fuel injection system mixes air and fuel in the engine. Over time, the fuel injectors will become blocked with fuel deposits, reducing fuel flow into your vehicle's engine. Keeping the system clean is an essential part of your vehicle's maintenance, offering several benefits, including:
- Preventing fuel injector damage – Fuel deposits can cause carbon to build up on the injector, causing wear and forcing excess fuel delivery for every pulse.
- Improving engine performance – Over time, internal buildups inside your engine can cause your engine to run less efficiently.

THE IMPORTANCE OF OIL CHANGE
Motor oil is responsible for performing numerous essential functions in your vehicle. It keeps your engine smooth and ensures that there is no friction on the moving parts. Not only that, but it prevents rust, eliminates engine noise, removes contaminants and cools down your engine. However, the oil in your vehicle doesn't work forever. The heat it encounters in the combustion process wears it down and reduces its effectiveness. With this breaking down, the oil stops moving as fluidly as it should. It starts accumulating contaminants and becomes dirty. As it thickens and becomes dirtier, it turns into sludge. It stops fighting against corrosion and becomes abrasive with time. In other words, the old oil in your vehicle is ineffective and does more harm than good.
For all of the reasons we've mentioned above, it is essential to have us carry out an oil change as a part of your vehicle's routine maintenance. Please schedule an oil-changing appointment with us today in New Westminster.
WHEN SHOULD I CHANGE MY VEHICLE’S OIL?
One of the most common questions we get from vehicle-owners is regarding the frequency of oil changes. Traditionally, 3-4 months was an ideal time. However, in today's vehicles, oil changes at this frequency are not necessary. Modern engine oils have superior lubricating technologies that don't require changes at this frequency.
For specific details regarding the frequency of oil change, you should go back to your manufacturer manuals. Every manufacturer has different requirements regarding oil change for their engines, and it is beneficial to meet them. Moreover, when it comes to an oil change, there is some wiggle room. It is optional that when your dashboard says there is zero km left before your oil change, you need to turn around from your intended direction and head to an auto repair shop. Generally, you can exceed the mile marker by a few hundred km. It is when you push the limit beyond thousands that you risk engine damage.
Most manufacturers suggest 6-12 months between oil changes, regardless of how often you drive your vehicle. If you'd like to get a better idea, we invite you to schedule an inspection at our auto repair shop to change your oil in New Westminster.
SIGNS THAT YOUR VEHICLE NEEDS AN IMMEDIATE OIL CHANGE
Sometimes you need to change your oil earlier than you would have thought. Here are a few signs that may signal a quick oil change:
Dashboard warning light: If the dashboard warning light for the oil pressure or oil level comes on, it is a sign that the oil needs to be changed immediately. The oil might be too low or dirty and needs to be changed to prevent engine damage.
Engine noise: If you hear a knocking or ticking noise from the engine, it may be a sign that the oil needs to be changed. This noise is often caused by low oil pressure, which can lead to engine damage if not addressed promptly.
Dark or dirty oil: Check your oil dipstick regularly to ensure that the oil is clean and at the correct level. It may be time for an oil change if it appears dark or dirty. Dirty oil can cause engine wear and decrease performance.
Decreased fuel economy: If you notice a sudden decrease, it could indicate that your oil needs to be changed. Dirty oil can cause the engine to work harder, which uses more fuel.
Burning smell: If you smell burning oil while driving, it could indicate that your oil needs to be changed. This smell may be caused by oil leaking onto hot engine parts or by dirty oil burning in the engine.
If you notice any of these signs in your car in New Westminster, it is essential to schedule an oil change with us as soon as possible to prevent costly engine damage.
HOW OIL CHANGE CAN SAVE HUGE COSTS
Regular oil changes are critical to vehicle maintenance and can help save you high costs. Here are some ways in which oil changes can save you money:
Prevent engine damage: Clean engine oil lubricates and cools your engine, preventing wear and tear on engine components. Dirty or old oil can lead to engine damage and costly repairs.
Improve fuel economy: Fresh oil reduces engine friction and helps your engine run more efficiently. Fresh oil can translate to better fuel economy, which saves you money at the pump.
Extend engine life: Routine oil changes can help extend the life of your engine, allowing you to get more mileage out of your vehicle before investing in a new one.
Identify potential problems early: To catch potential issues early and prevent them from becoming more prominent and expensive, your mechanic will inspect other vehicle parts, such as brakes, tires, and suspension, during an oil change.
Maintain warranty coverage: Some vehicle warranties require regular oil changes to remain valid. By staying up to date on oil changes, you can ensure that you maintain your warranty coverage and avoid any out-of-pocket costs for repairs.
Overall, routine oil changes may seem like a small expense in the short term, but they can help save you high costs in the long run. Contact Dawson Services Ltd for a quick oil change in your vehicle in New Westminster today.
HOW MUCH DOES AN OIL FILTER COST?
Another popular cause of concern with our clients is the price of an oil change. Naturally, there is no set standard when it comes to the cost of one. The cost of an oil change in a Toyota will be different from that in a BMW. Numerous factors determine the final price, some of which are:
The type of oil.
The quality of the oil.
The grade of the oil.
The price of the oil filter.
Some people might decide to carry out a 'do-it-yourself' approach when their vehicle requires an oil change. However, this can damage your vehicle, and you will miss out on the comprehensive inspections that we carry out at our repair shop.
