Oil Changes

To keep your vehicle in working order, it’s important to have its oil changed. A general rule of thumb is to have it changed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles for vehicles regularly driven and approximately every 6 months for cars used less frequently. While these are fairly standard guidelines, it’s important to check what your owner’s manual says.

By changing your car’s oil on a regular basis, your car will last longer because there will be less dirt buildup than in a car that isn’t regularly maintained. Your car’s life will be extended because dirt buildup makes the engine work harder, which increases the likelihood your engine will fail. New oil extends the life of your car by removing those damaging dirt particles and sludge.

As with most things with moving parts, your car’s engine needs to remain lubricated. Without proper oil lubrication, the pistons, valves, and other engine parts will wear down over time from the friction. Not only does maintaining the proper oil level keep your engine lubricated, but it also cools the engine components, preventing it from overheating.

An added bonus of regular oil changes is that they improve gas mileage. The U.S. Department of Energy says that routine oil changes can improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent. While that’s not a huge gas savings, it does add up after the lifetime of a vehicle.

When bringing your car in for an oil change, ensure to use the oil recommended by a mechanic. These days some cars take synthetic motor oil. Others use a synthetic blend or conventional motor oil. Using the right type of motor oil is just as necessary as routine oil changes.
