The Importance of Oil Changes

Oil is the lifeblood of your engine. When your vehicle runs well, it is referred to as a well-oiled machine, because oil is vital to your car or truck’s operation. However, even though oil is important for your vehicle to consistently perform, many drivers often put off oil changes longer than they should. A general rule of thumb is to have your oil changed every 3,000 miles or at the mileage listed in your car’s manual. Also, it is important to have your oil filter changed often as well, because it can clog the flow of oil to your engine.

Oil plays a number of important roles in your engine. Primarily, it is what provides the lubrication your engine needs to run efficiently. This reduces the friction of all the moving parts in your engine, and even plays a part in keeping it cool. Finally, it helps keep your engine clean by picking up small pieces of debris and collecting them in the filter. Oil changes remove this debris from the system and put new, clean oil in.

Many drivers feel like oil changes aren’t all that important and can be put off for a month or even more. While your vehicle won’t simply break down if you wait an extra month, there is unseen damage happening to your vehicle. Because oil lubricates your engine, skipping oil changes can cause these parts to wear down quicker, leading to the need for expensive repairs much sooner than normal. Oil also removes the debris and particulates from your engine, which can cause corrosion if you don’t change the oil often enough. By coming in for regular oil changes with our team, you’re able to keep your engine in good condition for a much longer time.
