Oil Changes

MINI Oil Changes in Portland
The Importance Of Checking And Changing The Oil in Your MINI
MINI vehicles are known for many things: their cool and unique look, a wide array of customization options, and a ridiculously fun driving experience. We know that our customers want to make sure that their MINI vehicles last as long as possible, which is why we stress the importance of regular oil changes and routine maintenance. You have questions about changing the oil on your MINI and we have answers.

Q: What does motor oil actually do?
A: Motor oil lubricates all the moving parts in the engine. This prevents any friction that would happen if motor oil wasn't in your car. Without motor oil, engine parts would grind against each other and cause wear and tear on the components. The longer you go without an oil change, the thicker the oil gets. This is because the oil collects contaminants, metal fragments and grime as it goes through the engine block. 

If you allow your oil to get sludgy, buildup will occur around crankshafts, valves and pistons. The longer this persists, the more likely you are to experience damage that may require expensive engine repairs. In some cases, engine parts will no longer usable and you will need to be replace them completely. 

Expensive engine repairs can be avoided by changing the oil in your MINI regularly. When you get new oil, it is contaminant-free and improves the performance of your MINI vehicle. It also extends the life of your engine, increases your MPG and decreases the harmful emissions from your MINI. 

Take advantage of our Lifetime Oil Change and Filter program and make it easier to maintain the condition of your MINI for years to come.

Q: When Do I Need To Change The Oil in my MINI?
A: We're glad you asked. The computer system in your MINI vehicle is programmed to remind you to come in for an oil change once a year or by mileage, whichever comes first. So be sure to watch for the oil change light in your MINI.
