Oil changes keep your engine running smoothly by helping its fast-moving parts stay lubricated. Proper lubrication helps to reduce wear and tear on your engine parts, and it helps it stay cool. So, oil changes play a critical role in improving the longevity and efficiency of your engine. That's why it's so important to keep up with routine oil changes!

So, why does your oil need to be changed in the first place? What happens if you don't change your oil regularly? Here's an overview!

Why are oil changes important?

As time passes, oil breaks down and grows contaminated with dirt and tiny metal particles that shed from your engine's moving parts. Leaving your engine to operate with dirty, sludgy oil can cause your engine to wear out prematurely, which can lead to not only poor efficiency but also costly engine damage.

Regular oil changes ensure that your engine has plenty of fresh, clean oil, resulting in better engine performance and improved overall vehicle longevity.

How can you tell when you need an oil change?

The most obvious sign is an illuminated oil change warning light, but there are other warning signs to watch for that could indicate that you're overdue for an oil change. Common signs include:

  • Engine knocking
  • Exhaust smoke
