In both cases, it performs the same function: protecting parts from corrosion, contamination, friction and wear. It also reduces energy consumption for resistance and performs the functions of cooling the engine or gearbox, respectively.
Why is it worth changing oils at the service?
First of all, there is a huge amount of oils. Therefore, you need to know which product is right for your car. When changing the engine oil, the oil filter must be replaced. This is due to the fact that the old one not only does not catch impurities, but also contaminates the new oil. If the filter is installed incorrectly or not tightly enough, oil will leak. As a result, you will lose on constant topping up. Sometimes there are times when it is necessary not only to change the oil, but to flush the oil. Such situations are determined by car service specialists according to the condition of the used oil.
As for the independent replacement of transmission oil, then carrying it out at home is quite laborious, since it is performed by the pushing method. At our service, we carry out its replacement using special equipment that excludes the possibility of breakdown.
Add to the above the time that you will spend parsing and performing operations. And also the amount for the repair of the most important parts of the car in case of incorrect replacement. As a result, you will receive an unambiguous answer to the question whether it is worth changing the oil in our car service in Tallinn.
