Why are Oil Changes Important?

Different vehicles require different kinds of oil and recommend different intervals for oil changes, so be sure to consult your owner’s manual—or a qualified service department—to learn what’s best for your car. That said, oil changes are universally important for a variety of reasons:

  • Keep Your Engine’s Parts Moving
    • Engines are filled with moving parts, and they need to remain lubricated to avoid damage. Oil is that lubrication. You can’t just put oil in the engine once and call it good, though—over time, the oil will break down and take on contaminants like dust and dirt. The more contaminants in the oil, the less effective it will be at lubricating your engine, which can cause huge problems if neglected.
  • Keep Your Engine Cool
    • While your vehicle’s radiator is the star of the show when it comes to preventing your engine from overheating, oil plays an important role as well. Without proper lubrication, the moving parts in the engine will create friction, which creates heat.
  • Keep Your Engine Clean
    • Remember what we said about oil taking on contaminants? These contaminants can cause big problems with your engine. Draining the old oil and filling your engine with the fresh stuff on a regular basis can keep dirt from becoming a big problem.
  • Keep Your Engine Efficient
    • Clean oil can help your engine achieve better mpg ratings! To be more precise, routine oil changes have the potential to improve a vehicle’s efficiency by up to two percent. While you might not notice this every time you fill up the tank, it all adds up, and it can make a huge difference over the life of the vehicle.
  • Keep Your Engine Going
    • It keeps your engine cool, it keeps your engine clean, it keeps the engine parts moving easily, and it helps you go the distance—with all that in mind, it should be no surprise that regular oil changes can help your engine stand the test of time and endure long trips away from Freehold and Matawan.
