Reasons Why Oil Changes Are Important

Your car’s oil is like its blood. Without it, it is going to die. That is why it is so critical to keep up with your car’s oil changes. In fact, here are four reasons why oil changes are important.

  1. Cooling. As the engine’s parts move, they create friction, which them creates heat. Oil helps draw the heat out of these parts to prevent them from overheating.
  2. Lubrication. Inside the engine, everything is moving very fast. Without proper lubrication, it can cause these parts to seize or even break. Use the correct oil weight and grade to keep everything moving freely.
  3. Cleaning. Another important oil function is to clean the engine. It will collect any dirt or other particles in your engine. Over time, as the oil gets dirtier and dirtier, it will begin to turn into sludge. Routine oil changes prevent this from happening and keep your engine clean.
  4. Efficiency. By always having clean oil in your engine, you will keep your car’s efficiency where it is supposed to be. Dirty oil will make an engine work harder, thus wasting a lot of gas and money.

If you need to get caught up on maintenance, schedule an appointment with our service center at Dependable Mitsubishi. We’d be glad to get your vehicle back in healthy condition.

How to Enjoy the Basketball Tournament at Work

How to Enjoy the Basketball Tournament at Work

Every March, everyone’s favorite basketball tournament begins. Unfortunately, many of the games are held during work days. So, how can you enjoy the tournament at work without sacrificing your job? Here four great suggestions that we follow at Dependable Mitsubishi.

  1. Fill out some brackets. This is undeniably one of the most exciting parts about the tournament. Fill out a bracket or two and predict who you think will win. Don’t forget that there are always at least one or two big upsets.
  2. Create an office pool. Be sure to check with management before doing this. Many offices allow some type of tournament pool. For each bracket someone submits, they could put $5 into the pot. At the end, pay out the money to the winning brackets.
  3. Watch a few games during lunch. Most of the time, employees can spend their lunch and break times how they want. Find out if you can turn on a game during your free time to catch some of the action.
  4. Have a party. Start an office potluck event either scheduled during a lunch break of after work. Everyone can bring their favorite foods to share while you watch a game.

This year’s tournament promises to be a good one. You can bet that we at Dependable Mitsubishi will be talking about it the next time you visit.
