Oil Change and Lube
To use a body analogy, the oil in your engine is like the blood in your veins. It is absolutely vital for your car to function. Oil lubricates your engine’s joints and keeps it running smoothly. It lets metal move against metal without damage. In a technical example, it lubricates the pistons as they move up and down in the cylinders. Without oil or proper lubrication, the metal-on-metal friction creates so much heat that eventually the surfaces weld themselves together and the engine seizes, which will cause the engine to fail and your car to stop running.
Getting your oil levels checked every few hundred miles and changed every 4000 miles is a great insurance policy that will help prevent expensive damage and repairs to your engine in the long term. Regular oil changes make sure that your engine stays healthy, and therefore keeps your car running in peak condition for as long as possible.
Although many people disagree on how often you should get your oil checked, you should consider checking your oil more regularly if:
- You’re a fairly irresponsible driver (jackrabbit starts, heavy acceleration or high-speed driving)
- Your engine is old and burns oil
- You frequently carry heavy loads
- You drive in a climate that experiences extreme temperatures
- You often drive on dirt roads
