Everyone says you should get regular oil changes, but why is that? Why are they so important?
Regular oil changes are an important part of keeping your car in good shape! Fresh oil prevents significant wear on your engine and lubricates all the moving parts. Dirty oil is less efficient at protecting the engine and the parts of the engine from the stress of rubbing against one another. If left for too long without an oil change, severe damage can be done to your car, resulting in expensive and avoidable repairs.
It is also crucial that you change out your oil on time. It depends on the make and year of your vehicle, but on average your vehicle’s oil should be changed around every 5,000 miles. In the process of getting your oil changed, it's easy to notice other issues that have arisen, making it possible to catch them early.
When you regularly change your oil, you extend the life of your engine. The oil lubricates and protects your engine, so the longer it goes with old or low amounts of oil, the longer your engine could start experiencing problems.
Did you know that when you change your oil on time, you get better gas mileage as well? While your fuel economy can be influenced by several factors, having the optimum fuel levels and grades will undoubtedly help your wallet at the gas pump. Clean oil helps to reduce your engine’s friction, allowing your vehicles to run more efficiently.
