Maintain your engine with regular oil changes.
Why are oil changes important?
Oil is an important component of your engine because it protects it from overheating or becoming damaged by dirt and dust particles. Regular oil changes are mandatory for sustained engine performance.
Over time, oil breaks down and loses its viscosity due to the extreme heat conditions within the engine. It also becomes contaminated with dirt and debris that can damage pistons and other engine components. Sludge from this old, broken down oil can build up inside your engine and prevent it from working efficiently. This would require an expensive cleaning and may even require further investments to replace components.
Remember your oil change interval.
When should you change your oil?
You’ve probably heard it said that you should change your oil every 3,000 miles or every three months. According to the experts, this is a common misconception that many people waste their time and money on. The majority of newer vehicles can last from 7,000 to 10,000 miles before an oil change is needed. Some even last for up to 15,000.
Instead, experts suggest consulting your owner’s manual for your vehicle’s suggested oil change interval or to change it when the service engine light appears.
Some vehicles may require more frequent oil changes if you regularly drive in severe conditions including:
- Stop-and-go traffic
- Towing heavy loads
- Extreme weather conditions
Your owner’s manual will have suggested intervals for both normal and severe driving conditions to ensure your vehicle receives proper care. It’s important to remember that all vehicles are made differently and will require different service intervals. Newer vehicles have greater engine technology than their older counterparts which allows for longer periods between oil changes.
In addition, you’ll want to replace your oil filter every oil change to keep your engine free of particles and debris that could otherwise damage it.
Use a synthetic-blend oil at every service interval.
What is synthetic-blend oil?
Synthetic-blend oil is a hybrid concentration of synthetic and conventional oils that offers all-weather durability and resistance to extreme temperatures, but at a fraction of the cost of synthetic oil. Compared to conventional oil, synthetic-blend is slower to break down and is less prone to sludge buildup. It also maintains a consistent viscosity (oil thickness/thinness) at higher temperatures for better wear protection. Both heavy and lightweight vehicles reap the benefits of this low cost blend.
