Common Oil Change Questions
The Purpose of Oil
Oil is the true unsung hero of your car’s engine. It performs two crucial functions:
- Temperature Regulation
Essentially, oil helps the rapidly moving parts inside your engine operate smoothly, without grinding against each other, and keeps your car’s engine cool by dissipating heat.
Over time, as oil moves throughout your engine, it collects debris and becomes less effective at performing these functions.
This can cause irreparable friction damage to your engine due to the lack of lubrication. Old oil can also cause your engine to overheat and cause seal and gasket damage. This kind of damage can be very costly, so it’s best to nip it in the bud and keep up-to-date on routine oil changes.
How to Know Its Time for an Oil Change
There are many ways to know when you need a change. The easiest way is to keep an eye on your mileage.
Check your owner’s manual or contact your local technician for your vehicle’s exact needs for oil change frequency. The general rule is to change your oil every 6,000 miles, or six months, if you have a newer car.
Your car will give you several clues, as well, that indicate it requires fresh oil and needs it soon. These clues include:
- A knocking sound in the engine
- Decreased fuel efficiency
- An oil smell in the cabin
If you can’t remember the last time you got an oil change, you should probably make a pit-stop at your local service center.
