Why Changing Oil is Important

Why changing oil is important

A car needs many different fluids of varying viscosities to operate, but few fluids are as important as oil. Check out why changing the oil is important to maximizing your vehicle’s lifespan.

Lubricates

Dozens of moving parts make up a car’s engine. Many of these parts move at high speeds and can damage other parts if they aren’t properly lubricated. Owners can consult the owner’s manual or a dealership service technician to determine that the proper oil is used to lubricate the engine.

Cools

Thanks to so many parts moving at high speeds, the engine heats up rather quickly. As oil moves through the engine, it takes some of that excess heat along with it, effectively cooling the engine. Routine oil changes allow the oil to cool the engine more efficiently.

Protects

To put it simply, routine oil changes protect the engine. Old oil can’t cool, lubricate, and protect the engine as well as fresh oil. Drivers who forego routine oil changes could see a shorter engine lifespan in their vehicle.

Efficiency

A poorly lubricated engine won’t make the most of every drop of fuel. Routine oil changes can improve fuel economy by up to two percent. That may not seem like much, but it adds up over time. Consider improved fuel economy an added bonus to a properly maintained, cooled, and protected engine.
