Importance of a Regular Oil Change

When it comes to maintaining your vehicle, a routine oil change can pay off in the long run. Oil plays a vital role in your vehicle’s engine. By scheduling a regular oil change, you can prevent having to pay a large sum of money down the road in costly repairs.

What Oil Does For Your Car: Engine oil functions in three major ways. The oil in your engine helps to keep the many components of your engine working together smoothly. There can be thousands of controlled detonations happening every minute inside of your engine, which can create a lot of heat. Engine oil helps to draw the heat away from the combustion chamber and prevents it from potentially overheating. In addition, oil helps to prevent carbon and varnishes from accumulating in the engine.

When To Change Engine Oil: Oil changes are typically recommended based on when a certain mileage or time limit has been reached. The most common recommendation is 3,000 miles or three months, whichever is reached first. However, experts will tend to say trust your odometer. Driving will tend to take more of a tole on your engine than if your car were to be sitting for three months.

What Happens When You Don’t Change Your Oil: A reoccurring problem we see in engines whose oil isn’t changed on a regular basis is buildup in the cooler parts of the engine, like the crankcase and around the camshafts and valves. This can lead to carbon deposits, or sludge, coming out of the old oil. This can lead to a costly engine cleaning or force you to replace worn-out piston rings. In addition, the pistons could eventually seize or the camshafts could be damaged. These repairs can be costly, and make a few high end oil changes look like pocket change. Scheduling routine oil changes can be really cheap insurance for your engine.
