What does an oil change help you avoid?
Engine oil will break down and become corrupt when left in the crankcase past the prescribed length of time. Over time, the combination of heat, friction, and unclean oil in your car can oxidize, producing build-up in your car engine’s internal parts called sludge. Not only can sludge produce a variety of problems, a long-term buildup can ultimately cause complete engine failure.
At what mile marker should you change your oil?
New research and development by carmakers and petroleum companies has resulted in the improvement of engine lubricants. Engine oils today lubricate a car’s engine more properly than ever before, and they are designed to eliminate sludge buildup by keeping your vehicle’s parts cleaner. Whereas the standard marker used to be 3,000 miles or every three months—whichever came first—today, more auto shops recommend an oil change every 5,000 miles, thanks to these improved oils on the market.
