Are Oil Changes Really Important? | Bixby Auto Care
Regular oil changes are the best way to keep your car running trouble free for many miles and many years.
You were headed home after the Fairytale ball this morning when you car’s oil change reminder light flashed on. All you felt was irritation. You know it doesn’t take long to get an oil change and it’s not terribly expensive, but it just interferes with your life. You wonder whether regular oil changes are really necessary.
The short answer is YES. Regular oil changes and crucial to keeping your car running well for many miles and many years.
“Oil is an essential lubricant in your engine,” auto.howstuffworks.com says. “It lets metal press against metal without damage. For example, it lubricates the pistons as they move up and down in the cylinders. Without oil, the metal-on-metal friction creates so much heat that eventually the surfaces weld themselves together and the engine seizes.”
Even if you never ran out of oil, you’d run into trouble if you never changed it. Auto.howstuffworks.com explains, “Dirt will accumulate in the oil. The filter will remove the dirt for a while, but eventually the filter will clog and the dirty oil will automatically bypass the filter through a relief valve. Dirty oil is thick and abrasive, so it causes more wear.
“Additives in the oil like detergents, dispersants, rust-fighters and friction reducers will wear out, so the oil won’t lubricate as well as it should.
“Eventually, as the oil gets dirtier and dirtier, it will stop lubricating and the engine will quickly wear and fail.”
