When you got your first car, we’re willing to bet that your parents told you — repeatedly — not to forget to get the oil changed. So you stayed on top of it, but why does changing the oil matter so much? There are a few reasons:
- Your engine is comprised of a number of components that move quickly when the car is in motion. If there isn’t proper lubrication, a lot of friction heat is generated. Oil helps to prevent the engine from overheating.
- As time goes on, the oil in the engine will break down into sludge. By changing the oil, you can keep the engine clean and working efficiently.
- If your engine isn’t well lubricated, it has to work harder. That causes more fuel consumption. Regular oil changes can boost your gas mileage and save you money.
- Clean oil protects a wide variety of engine parts, extending the life of your engine by years.
