Within a car’s engine, there are a significant number of moving parts. Oil keeps that friction from causing damage to your engine by providing lubrication and absorbing heat that’s a natural by-product of machinery moving at a high speed.
Regular oil changes keep your engine running better, longer. Over time, your oil can absorb debris, dust, and dirt from inside the engine and from the environment, which can cause engine failure. Old oil also doesn’t provide as much lubrication as fresh oil does, which means that your engine can suffer damage that way too.
Most engines now do very well if you change your oil every 5,000 miles, but older models may need an oil change as often as every 1,000 miles. If you’re not quite sure of how often you should change your oil, feel free to stop by and let us take a look at your oil for you!
