6 Benefits of Getting Your Oil Changed

6 Benefits of Getting Your Oil Changed


It's generally advised that conventional oil gets changed somewhere between 3,000 and 5,000 miles, while you can go significantly longer before changing synthetic oil. To find out the recommended mileage points and oil type for your vehicle, you can refer to your owner's manual or ask someone at the shop. For your engine to keep running strongly, it's important to always keep up with oil changes. Here are six reasons why you should always follow your oil change schedule.

Proper Lubrication

With the right amount of clean oil, your engine's moving parts will be thoroughly lubricated, which will protect them against serious damage. One sign of dangerously low oil is that there's a repetitive tapping noise coming from your engine.

New Oil Filter

A clogged-up oil filter can prevent oil from effectively circulating through your engine. As a result, friction could cause significant engine problems.

Eliminate Engine Gunk

Old oil is more likely to be filled with contaminants that create a sludgy consistency. As part of an oil change, this polluted oil will be drained and your vehicle will be refilled with fresh oil that will help to keep your engine healthier.

Identify Developing Engine Problems

It's best to get your vehicle's oil changed by an experienced mechanic instead of at an express lube joint. This way, you could benefit from a highly trained set of eyes identifying an emerging problem that can then be fixed before it becomes more expensive to repair.

Maximum Engine Power

Fresh oil helps your engine reach optimal power. With greater power, your car will run more efficiently, which could give you a boost in MPGs.

Healthy Engine Temperature

For a safe engine temperature, it's important that heat is properly redistributed from the combustion chamber. The right amount of clean oil will help with redistributing heat.
