When people get asked about their car’s maintenance, oil changes are usually the first thing that pops in their heads (and with good reason). This simple, quick, and effective service is hands-down the most essential part of vehicle maintenance. (Bonus - it is also cheap) If you want a healthy, well-performing engine, don’t miss out on this service.
Just like any other fluid in your car, motor oil doesn’t last forever. As it runs throughout the motor, it gets dirty and becomes less effective. To ensure your engine gets the proper lubrication it needs, you must have your oil exchanged. That way, you don’t suffer from various engine and/or engine failures.
Engine oil comes in different brands, prices, viscosity, and types. There’s conventional, semi-synthetic, and synthetic. Your automaker typically has a recommended oil listed in the owner’s manual. But when you take your vehicle to a mechanic, they will be able to tell or look up this information themselves.
Another thing you should know about oil changes is that they are also accompanied with an oil filter change too. This makes sure that all the contaminants get sifted out of the oil before it flows through the engine again and again.
Here are the top 3 benefits of regular oil changes:
- Keeps Engine Temperature Low - Most oils on the market nowadays have additives that can help absorb excess heat within the engine. Therefore, it is important to upkeep your oil changes to keep your engine in good shape.
- Removes Build-Up in the Engine - As mentioned before, metal shavings, dust, and other harmful particles can collect over time. If you don’t want your engine to be harmed or overwork itself, make sure to always have a clean flow of engine oil.
- Makes Sure All Parts Are Properly Lubricated - The main goal of oil changes is to keep your engine healthy and alive for as long as possible. Engine oil keeps friction between the engine’s moving parts to a minimum. And therefore, it extends the wear and tear of your engine components.
