3 Reasons You Should Never Skip an Oil Change
October 2, 2019
Whether your car is brand new or it’s been around the block a few times, skipping an oil change can cost you. Oil is one of the most important components of your vehicle; it allows the engine to operate and the car to actually run. Without it, you’ll face engine seizure and likely the loss of the vehicle overall.
So, the next time your oil change appointment comes around, don’t push it off. Here are 3 reasons why you should always get your oil changed on time:
Oil Changes Keep Your Engine Running Efficiently
Over time, your oil will become corrupted through normal use. Fuel/combustion deposits, moisture, and acid created through the combustion process will spread through your oil and “gum up the works” so to speak. When your oil moves sluggishly through your vehicle’s system, you’ll probably find yourself hitting the gas station more often because your vehicle needs to work harder to move the dirty oil. Thankfully, with regular oil changes, you can ensure an efficient process and better gas mileage.
Oil Changes Save You Money
A lot of people may put off their oil changes to save money or to see how long they can go before something serious occurs. One extra week won’t hurt, right? It might not. However, prolonged delays on your oil changes can put a lot of strain on your engine and once the strain sets in, you may need to do more than maintenance; your vehicle may need repairs. Repairs, in many ways, are going to be a lot more expensive than simple, routine maintenance. Not to mention the fact that, in many cases, repairs can’t be delayed. Either you make the repair or you can’t drive the car.
Oil Changes Keep Your Engine Running. Period.
As oil gets older, it starts to get thick. After a while, it can turn to sludge. As the sludge works its way through your engine, it can eventually cause the system to seize, which means that you’ll likely be buying a new car. When you keep up with your maintenance schedule, you can ensure the health of your engine and keep it running smoothly so that you don’t have to miss a beat.
