Need Help With Your Oil Leak?
Oil leaks are not something you should ignore as it can damage your engine if not dealt with quickly resulting in major repair costs. While a common issue in cars, it is important to arm yourself with the knowledge to spot these quickly in order to obtain an oil leak repair right away.
What Is An Oil Leak?
An oil leak is when oil begins to fall to the ground from the car due to degraded engine gaskets or oil seals. As a car owner, you know to have your oil changed regularly, but at times work, and other responsibilities may get in the way (or even laziness) and the oil change isn’t completed in the time frame it was supposed to. This can cause problems.
The purpose of car oil is to reduce the amount of friction within your engine parts. When you have clean, quality oil that is performing properly the components of your engine are not rubbing together and causing corrosion (this is a very good thing).
With use, oil becomes dirty or contaminated and loses its viscosity. This in turn means that it can no longer perform the way it did and friction begins to occur. Friction is very bad, as it means that the metal and rubber components of the engine begin rubbing against each other, wearing themselves down, and erosion ensues. This is where mechanical failure begins to occur.
