We’ve all put off getting our regular oil changes a little longer than we should. It doesn’t seem like that big of a deal, but it is. One of the most important aspects of car maintenance is changing the oil. Here is why.

The Importance of Regular Oil Changes


There are a ton of components, valves, pistons, etc all moving very rapidly creating heat and friction. If these components are not properly lubricated with oil they will create more heat and friction than is safe or healthy for an engine and wear it down drastically. You want to make sure that you have enough oil and have fresh oil in your engine at all times or else you will find yourself facing costly repair bills or out of a car completely.


Overheating your engine is a bad idea. An engine that gets too hot can shut down and become a dangerous situation to the driver and passengers of the automobile. Oil prevents friction which causes heat. Keeping your engine and its parts cool will ensure that they work more efficiently and safely.

Gas Mileage 

Less friction and heat in your engine means it doesn’t have to work as hard to get you from point a to point b. When your engine is working less you are burning less gas to make it work. This improves the amount of miles you get to each gallon of gas which ultimately saves you money at the pump.

Vehicle Age

Do you want to keep your car for a long time, or do you want to be forced to buy a new car because your old one gave out on you? Regular oil changes ensure the long-term health of your car. You will be able to drive it for years and years if you make sure to get regular maintenance including oil changes.
