Oil changes are one of the best things you can do for your vehicle because of how much your engine depends on the oil that’s in it. It is often considered to be the lifeblood of your car, truck or SUV. They all have the need for oil changes in common with one another. Your engine oil is important for several reasons, it lubricates and protects the moving components in your engine, helping prevent metal to metal contact which reduces friction and in turn the eat it would produce.
Heat can be your engine’s worst nightmare as it can cause the more intricate components in your engine to warp and brake before they would normally need to be changed with regular maintenance. Your oil also helps clean your engine. Over time, metal shaving, dirt and other contaminants can find their way into your engine. Your oil circulates throughout your engine, picking up this harmful debris and deposits it in your oil filter.
