Whilst car engine and oil technology has dramatically changed which resulted in increased service intervals from 5 thousand kilometers to 15 to 20 thousand kilometers.
Many car owners are unknowingly imposing upon themselves a false sense of security by assuming that their oil needs to be replaced at 15 or perhaps at 20 thousand kilometers. In this part of the world due to frequent short distance and stop and go city driving you should be servicing your car under severe service section.
Today most engines can last if looked after properly at least a quarter million kilometers, and most will last twice as long.
Oil dilution from unburned fuel, frequent cold start and water from the combustion process while driven frequently at short distances will damage the engine.
Most drivers don’t realize that the internal combustion engine needs at least twenty kilometers of driving to remove the blow by water and fuel from the motor oil which is the blood of the engine as we all know it.
Please also pay special attention to specific ACEA designation by each respective manufacturer of all the European automobiles.
