Pouring Oil Into Reservoir

As many Ocean drivers know, the oil in your engine runs through and ensures the quality of multiple vital components. But what happens if you don’t change your oil? Learn about the serious consequences of dirty oil and how often to change your engine oil below with the service center at Acura of Ocean.

What Happens if You Don’t Get Your Oil Changed?

Before covering what happens if you don’t get your oil changed, let’s look at the multiple functions of motor oil. Generally speaking, your oil works by absorbing heat so as to prevent any overheating issues on Red Bank roads. Here are other facts about oil:

  • Without oil, the pistons and cylinders in your engine can weld together, resulting in extreme complications.
  • Over time, your oil gets dirty, which is why oil changes are regular aspects of car maintenance. Dirty oil comes from the build-up of debris, meaning that your oil eventually loses its function if you don’t change it out.

Can I Change my Oil Myself?

DIY oil changes are possible, but can be difficult for some drivers. You’ll need to consult your manual for the right oil, drain the dirty oil from the drain plug, change out the filter, and pour in a precise amount of new oil. If you find this process difficult, it’s always a great idea to schedule service with expert oil technicians.
