How Oil Helps Your Vehicle

Oil is the life blood of your vehicle, as it's absolutely imperative to your vehicle. Oil is used to lubricate the moving metal parts in your vehicle to allow them to move about flawlessly and without any problems. The oil not only lubricates these parts, but it also helps disperse the heat they emit to keep them cool and functioning properly.

Because oil works tirelessly for your vehicle, it requires a change. Depending on your vehicle and the type of oil you use, you may get 5,000 to 8,000 miles out of it before having to change it out. When oil is first introduced to your vehicle, it has a honey brown coloration. Over time, it becomes black and sludgy and requires a change in the near future.

Why You Need an Oil Change

Because oil gets dirty, it also becomes less effective. When it's dirty, it doesn't perform as well at lubricating the parts or keeping them cool. When the time comes, you should never put off an oil change. Fresh oil can greatly improve your vehicle's overall performance and even its fuel economy. If you hold off on the oil change, you'll notice a sluggish performance, and eventually, your engine will overheat. Putting off the oil change can even result in your engine completely shutting down, requiring extensive repairs or an expensive replacement.
