Why Are Oil Changes Necessary?

You know that routine maintenance is good for your vehicle. Taking care of one component can have a big impact on the rest of your car.

When it comes to oil changes, they’re important because they directly affect your vehicle’s engine. Oil is absolutely necessary to keep all the component engine parts cooled and lubricated. Neglecting to replenish old oil with new oil could lead to a build-up of dirt, debris, and sludge as well as overheating of engine parts. Even worse, skipping oil changes can reduce the fuel economy, driving performance or your vehicle, or lead to engine failure.
