1. Regular Oil Changes Keep You Engine Clean

When oil flows into the engine from other areas, dirt and other particles will begin to accumulate within it. If you are not changing your oil at the proper intervals, sludge will begin to build up in your engine. Those who may live in drier, dustier areas will have even more particles making there way through. Changing your engine oil as well as replacing your filters on a timely basis, will get any of these harmful bits of dirt and debris out of your engine before they do any damage.

2. Longer Engine Life More Likely with Routine Oil Changes

Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle. It lubricates and protects your engine and many of it’s critical parts from wear and damage. The problem is, oil gets dirty. By making sure that you have your oil and filter changed according to your owner’s manual specifications, you will be keep your engine clean and protected, as well as saving time, money and stress. A regularly scheduled oil change is an investment that will help ensure that you will be driving around in your vehicle for years to come.

3. Changing Your Oil Protects Other Engine Parts

What does oil actually do in my car? Inside your engine there are a many key parts which make your engine run such as the crank shaft and the connecting rods. These rods control the pistons insde of your engine’s cylinders. There is also another piece called the camshaft which assists in opening and closing the vehicle’s exhaust valves. Making sure that you have clean oil in your vehicle’s engine is crucial in keeping of of these components well moving and running properly.

4. Get Better Gas Mileage by Changing Your Oil On Time

Changing my oil on time and I will get better gas mileage? How does that work? Finding a vehicle that is good on gas is important to all of us. Overall miles per gallon are affected by a number of factors including environment, terrain, personal driving habits and vehicle maintenance. Without proper maintenance, all that dirt and grit we talked about earlier will build up inside your engine causing friction, and friction is no friend of your engine. Friction is the enemy of engine performance and optimum fuel economy. Making sure that your engine always has clean oil in it will help to reduce friction, allowing your engine to run more efficiently with the best possible gas mileage.

6. Pass Your Vehicle Emissions Test & Protect The Environment

When it comes to passing an emissions test it is all about how many of these particles called hydrocarbons are being sprayed out into the atmosphere. If you fail to change your oil on a regular basis, dirty oil causes a build up of these hydrocarbons inside areas of your engine’s crank case. These then get burned up, causing more of them to be released into the air through the vehicle’s exhaust. Not only will changing your oil on time help you pass this required emissions test, you will also be polluting less.

7. Routine Oil Changes Help with Better Engine Performance

Over time, old oil breaks down due to exposure to heat. This causes it to loses its viscosity as well as its ability to lubricate the engine cylinder walls. Essentially, the dirtier the oil is, the harder it is to go where it needs to. That sludge begins to build up in areas blocking the flow to parts which need lubrication. Another function of oil is to draw heat from your parts of the engine. If they are sovered with sludge, these parts stay hotter longer. Ultimately the engine will run less efficiently as its performance is robbed of both gas mileage and horsepower.
