What does oil do for my vehicle?
The oil your engine uses, provides lubrication to prevent wear and tear through friction the parts moving to make your engine run. The oil also helps to prevent your engine from overheating, the lubrication will help to minimize excess engine noise, and the fluid will help to prevent potential corrosion or rust in your engine. The oil works in collaboration with the oil filter to get rid of any contaminates within the engine. As the oil moves through your engine, the flow actually helps to keep your engine clean.
Why is an oil change important to do on a regular basis?
Oil is an absolute necessity for your engine to be able to perform well and helping to provide you with a reliable vehicle to get you to where you need to be. When you drive your vehicle, the engine increases in temperature, and the heat generated from the engine begins to break down your vehicle’s oil. Oil that has been broken down does not move through or work with your engine as well. Used or dirty oil moves much slower than clean oil, preventing oil from being able to cycle through your engine the way it needs to. Dirty and/or broken-down oil may result in your engine not being able to get rid of contaminates, excess noise coming from your engine, possible engine rust or corrosion, and even over heating of the engine. If you hear excess noise coming from your engine, there is a chance that there are parts moving without adequate lubrication, causing wear on those parts. Oil will minimize the wear on parts, hopefully preventing you from having to replace them.
How often should I have my oil changed?
Motor oil is essential for your engine to work properly and needs to be changed on a regular basis. When you prolong or avoid oil changes you are risking harming your vehicle and shortening your engine’s lifespan. Bringing your vehicle in every 3,000-5,000 miles will ensure your engine has enough quality, clean oil to continue to run properly.
