Importance Of Oil Changes
It should come as no surprise that a running engine has many moving parts, each of which causes a lot of friction. The purpose of oil is to lubricate these parts so they can last as long as possible. That’s why it is so important to get it changed consistently. Without fresh, clean oil, your engine will actively damage itself while running.
How Often Do You Need An Oil Change?
There are quite a few different types and qualities of oils that you can choose to put into your car. The quality you choose will affect your fuel economy and how long it lasts. While some types require changing it every 3,000 miles, synthetic varieties can last up to 7,500 miles in your car. Others can last even longer. Changing it frequently is always better than holding off for too long.
There are also some signs you may notice that directly tell you when you need to change it. Using your engine’s dipstick will give you updates on the levels in your car. This also indicates how clean the oil is, as the darker the color, the more particles are in it. If you can smell burning or rub your fingers with a bit of oil and notice grittiness, you’ll need to urgently change it.
Your vehicle could also put out more emissions than usual or make strange noises. Noticing these signs or an illuminated check engine or oil light on your dashboard could indicate that your car needs fresh oil.
