Premium Oil Changes in San Antonio

Personalized Car Care -- Carlisle Air Automotive

Protect Your Engine

Carlisle Air Automotive of San Antonio has been your local dealership alternative for oil changes and vehicle maintenance since 1955. We always use the highest quality lubricants and filters for your vehicle. Whether your vehicle needs conventional, synthetic, or high-mileage motor oil, we carry it all and have the experience to know exactly what your engine requires to stay properly lubricated. By adhering to a routine oil change schedule, you protect the life and preserve peak performance of your vehicle. When you don’t, you risk damaging the internal parts of your engine and decreasing its lifespan. This is because as the lubricant ages, it chemically breaks down and becomes less effective at providing lubrication to your engine’s moving parts. If ignored long enough, your engine could suffer a major failure – a repair that could cost you thousands of dollars. The saying is true, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Oil Changes are Critically Important

No matter if you drive a car, truck, van, or SUV, it needs motor oil to function properly. Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle’s engine and without it, your car would not run. Motor oil provides the engine’s internal parts with the lubrication it needs to operate smoothly and without friction. In addition to providing lubrication, motor oil also collects dirt and other debris that may work its way into the engine. The oil will usually transfer this to the filter, but for very small particles, the lubricant itself creates a barrier around them which prevents wear on your engine’s components. Over time this level of contamination builds up and the filter and oil have a limited capacity for the debris. If that wasn’t enough, extreme Texas heat also contributes to the breakdown of motor oil. When oil becomes too hot, it begins to lose its ability to lubricate your engine and instead create deposits. These deposits can lead to a reduction in fuel efficiency, rough idle, and reduced power. As you can see, routine oil changes are critically important to your car’s engine.
