Regular oil changes are required for every vehicles engine to operate properly. Oil is essential to keep the engine lubricated and functioning. Over time, as you drive your vehicle, dirt and grime causes corrosion in your oil and becomes thick like a sludgy substance and begins to make it difficult to run through the engine properly. If the oil and oil filter are not changed in regular services, the sludge becomes thicker and begins to make the moving parts of your engine break down. It is essential to make sure that the oil is kept up to decrease the chances of internal damage within your engine.
When should you perform oil changes? What should you use?
Required oil changes are specific to each vehicle and they type of oil used. Some owner’s manuals recommend the oil to be changed every 10,000 miles, while others recommend between 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Choosing the proper oil weight should be left to a trusted automotive technician.
