Why Changing Your Oil is Important
Lubricates Your Engine’s Moving Parts – All the moving parts of your engine are operating at high rates of speed and the oil helps to make those movements create less wear and damage, in turn extending the life of your car.
Keeps It Cooler Too – Engines with low or dirty oil create lots of heat thru the friction of all those moving parts. Even though these are tough materials, heat and friction can cause significant damage to your car over time.
Don’t Sludge Your Engine – Overtime the oil in your engine accumulates dirt particles and begins to break down and turn into sludge. The sludge is not nearly as protective to the moving parts of your engine and nice fresh clean oil.
Get Better MPG – Even though gas prices have fallen a bit, who wouldn’t love better fuel economy in their car. Surprise, changing your oil is a great way to help your MPG and the longevity of your car.
