Why Oil Changes are Important
You may not be aware of it, but your engine oil performs a variety of tasks that are very important to your car’s health. A car’s engine is made up of lots of working parts, and the oil serves as a lubricant to keep all these parts running smoothly and efficiently.
An engine also heats up to incredibly high temperatures during normal everyday driving. The oil serves as a cooling agent inside your engine to ensure that it doesn’t overheat and incur serious damage during operation.
One fact that many people aren’t aware of is that engine oil actually acts as a cleaner. During operation, engines create deposits from the constant motion and activity of its internal parts. Engine oil absorbs these deposits making sure they don’t build up over time. Eventually your engine oil will reach a maximum saturation point where it cannot absorb any more deposits. This is when it’s time for new, fresh oil.
