Routine oil change service is probably the most important routine auto maintenance item. An oil change is the process of removing the old existing oil and oil filter from the engine and then replacing it with new oil and a new filter.
On some cars, a special “oil maintenance required” message will display when you need an oil change. Others may just show the check engine light. Others may not show any indicator and you need to track your mileage between changes according to your user manual.
In all cases, regular oil changes are important to keep your car running.
Oil Changes Keep Your Car Running
Because your engine has a lot of parts that are moving in a synchronized fashion under excessive heat. Without the lubrication provided by oil you get friction. Friction causes the parts to become worn and deteriorate.
Oil breaks down and wears out over time. Good clean engine oil will lubricate the internal parts, absorb heat, and keep everything working together in harmony.
Draining the oil and changing the filter can keep dirt and debris from building up in the engine. The higher the quality of the oil, the cleaner the engine will be. Overall regular oil changes will extend the life of your engine and save you in the long run.
