Changing your oil is very important. So why are oil changes so critical to vehicle health? Fresh oil and the oil changes process conducts several important functions for your car's engine, including the following.

 

Most vehicles need oil change maintenance performed every 3,000 to 6,000 miles.  Refer to your owner's manual to find out when your vehicle will be due to have this important maintenance routine performed, all determined on your own driving conditions as well as mileage and time.

 

A critical aspect of the oil change is the draining of the old oil. This process removes engine sludge that builds up over the miles, which can gunk up moving parts of the motor. This gunk is formed by dirt, dust and other particles that enter the engine, as well as miniscule metal particles that are shaved off the engine during normal operation. Much of this debris gets caught in the oil filter, but as the filter becomes clogged up it will result in this sludge building up inside the motor. A clogged oil filter will also reduce oil flow through the engine, which can cause numerous problems of its own. The oil filter will be replaced during a standard oil change.

 

While the cooling system keeps the operating at bay most of the time, fresh oil helps reduce the temperature of the engine in places that coolant can't reach. Oil reduces friction, thus lowering the amount of heat created by the motor as it operates.

 

The most important reason to keep up with oil changes is to ensure that your vehicle's engine is properly lubricated. Without proper engine oil levels there will be harsh metal on metal contact between the moving components of the engine, resulting in major damage. Oil changes are the best way to keep your engine healthy.
