Mechanics put little stickers as a reminder on our windshield. Over and over we're nagged to get our oil changed. But why does everyone insist it's so important?
One of the simplest forms of regular service for your car is the oil change, yet many drivers neglect this standard of auto maintenance, postponing the change long beyond the recommended time. Most sources recommend changing conventional oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles and synthetic oil every 5,000. Personalized Autohaus mechanics also suggest changing the oil filter with every oil change.
Despite these recommendations, many car owners wait to get their oil changed, in effort to save time or money or both. However, oil changes are actually very affordable, and the many benefits they provide make them an essential part of regular maintenance and you will be saving your engine from enormously costly repair down the line. Think of it as preventative medicine for your car.- Reduced Friction - Clean oil lubricates all parts of the engine, keeping them from rubbing against each other and potentially causing serious damage.
- Stable Temperature - By reducing friction, clean oil also reduces heat. If your car is running on dirty or low oil, it runs the risk of overheating.
- Cleaner Engine - Dirty oil allows gunk and debris to build up in the engine, hindering movement and interfering with performance.
- Better Mileage - A well-lubricated engine will run more smoothly, allowing you to get more miles per gallon of gas, ultimately saving you money at the tank.
- Lower Emissions - Clean oil will cause decreased emissions, reducing air pollution.
