Be road-ready for the rainy days

12:45 PM October 27, 2016


With the streets of the metro once again turning into one big virtual swimming pool because of the weather, your car is your best friend to keep you safe and dry on the road. Wouldn’t it be awful if your trusty car breaks down in the middle of a downpour?

Don’t let that happen to you! One of the best things you can do to keep your car from malfunctioning is to make sure it is ready to brave the weather by getting regular oil changes.


But why is an oil change important? Well, imagine this: your car’s engine is made up of many metal parts, all moving and working hard together to keep it running with the help of engine oil. This constant movement causes friction, which lessens the effectivity of your engine oil and can cause damage to your engine over time. Add severe weather conditions to the mix, and you’ve got an engine that will have to work extra hard to take you to places. This increases the risk of your car breaking down on the road, which can be extra troublesome during a heavy downpour.

Don’t be caught in this situation just because you put off getting an oil change. Make it a habit to get regular oil changes. With your busy schedule, it’s best to take your car to a service center to get your oil change professionally done. The frequency of getting an oil change varies per vehicle, and service centers can give you advice on how often you need to bring your car back to be serviced.

Have a go-to oil change center like Shell Helix Oil Change+ (SHOC+), where you can just sit back and relax at the air-conditioned lounge with free WiFi while expert mechanics work on your vehicle. The professional and friendly mechanics at SHOC+ use only quality Shell lubricants in every oil change. SHOC+ has also partnered with the Don Bosco Technical Institute to conduct Modern Engines and Lubrication Services training for all their mechanics, giving your car only the best possible service. Finding the nearest SHOC+ center is also convenient, with over 200 locations at different Shell stations nationwide.

“We at Shell understand that motorists lead busy lives, so aside from our quality fuels and lubricants, we also offer expert car maintenance services at Shell Helix Oil Change+ to keep their vehicles running right. This is especially important during the rainy season, when motorist are more dependent on their vehicles,” says Anthony Lawrence Yam, Pilipinas Shell’s Vice President for Retail.
