Long Beach, a city in Los Angeles County in Southern California, is the 36th-largest city in the U.S. and California’s seventh-largest. In 2010, its population was upwards of 460,000. As a result, there are a great many drivers on the roads of Long Beach and car care should be a primary part of your routine. At Advanced Computer Automotive (ACA), our professional car care specialists ensure your car is on the road where it should be, running properly and all at an affordable price, no matter what service you need.

One of the most important things you can do to keep your car in proper running order is have your oil changed on a regular basis. There may be no better way to keep your auto in tip top shape and running smoothly for hundreds of thousands of miles than to change the oil at the manufacturer’s recommended intervals. Regular oil changes not only improve the life of your vehicle’s engine, but allow your car to maximize its horsepower and ensure that all moving parts are working as good as new.

Failure to regularly change your oil can be catastrophic to your automobile. By running your car with less oil than it needs or with dirty or low viscosity means that you are risking damage to your engine and all of the moving parts of your car, keeping them from working as efficiently as they could. If parts grind together without lubrication in an internal combustion engine environment, the parts could fuse together, jam, simply stop working or even explode.

When it’s time for an oil change, you can simply purchase whatever oil you want to put into your car from a store and add it in yourself, or you can allow a professional do it. Never underestimate the value of having a trained individual under the hood of your car. They will be able to spot possibly troubling conditions that, if left untreated, have the potential to cause a breakdown, such as fluid leakage, cracked or frayed belts, bulging hoses and safety items including torn wiper blades, burned out lights, and unsafe tires. Allowing the ACA professionals to perform your oil change makes good sense.

Your car’s oil change may be something you don’t look forward to and hate to take the time to get done. However, there isn’t a car maintenance procedure that is more beneficial to your car when it’s done by a service facility you trust like the folks at ACA.
