Fix These Issues and Avoid Bigger Problems with Your Car!
Has your car been losing oil faster than usual? Have you just added oil to your engine only to find out later that it needs another refill? This must worry you a lot since you know that your oil must always be at the right level to keep your car’s engine running smoothly.
Excessive oil consumption could be a sign that something is wrong with your car. Breast Cancer Car Donations points out some of the possible reasons for this:
1. You’re using substandard oil.
Your owner’s manual recommends what type of oil is needed by your car. When you use cheap substandard oil to save a few bucks, this could result in more oil consumption. Worse, using low-quality oil that does not meet the required specs can also cause costly engine repairs and could ultimately void your vehicle’s engine warranty.
2. You have problems with the piston rings.
Your piston rings serve to seal the gap between the piston and cylinder wall. If the rings are damaged, motor oil will leak into the internal combustion chamber. Aside from your car’s excessive oil consumption, you could tell that your piston rings are damaged when you have poor acceleration and you see blue smoke coming out from your exhaust pipes.
3. You have worn-out seals and gaskets.
Another possible reason for excessive oil consumption is having worn-out seals and gaskets due to high engine temperatures. Have your seals and gaskets checked regularly by your trusted mechanic to prevent oil leaks. Have those parts replaced quickly if they show signs of damage. They are relatively inexpensive very much unlike the cost you will have to bear from excessive oil consumption and potential damage to your engine.
4. You have an underperforming engine.
Engines in older cars tend to consume more oil than those in newer vehicles as their performance deteriorates over time.
Be Practical and Safe
If your old car is quickly shrinking your savings with the excessive cost of its frequent repairs and maintenance, consider letting it go and replacing it with a new model. This is not only more practical, but driving a new car in tip-top condition will also be much safer for you.
Now, if you’re thinking of the best way to dispose of your old ride, you can give it a new and worthy purpose by donating it to us at Breast Cancer Car Donations. We will convert your car into a powerful tool for saving the lives of indigent breast cancer patients in your local community.
