What is the Importance of an Oil & Filter Change?
Benefits of Regular Oil and Filter Changes
Regular oil and filter changes are essential to the longevity of your engine. Some of the most important benefits of keeping up with this routine maintenance include:
- Prevents Engine Damage
One of the most important reasons to get regular oil changes is to prevent engine damage. Over time, engine oil breaks down and becomes less effective at lubricating the engine. This can lead to increased wear and tear on the engine, which can eventually lead to serious problems. By getting regular oil changes, you can help to ensure that your engine stays properly lubricated.
- Improves Fuel Efficiency
Another reason to get regular oil changes is that it can improve fuel efficiency. When engine oil breaks down, it can cause increased friction between the moving parts of the engine. This increased friction can lead to the engine working harder, which in turn can lead to reduced fuel efficiency. By getting regular oil changes, you can help to keep your engine running more efficiently and save money on fuel costs over time.
- Keeps Your Car Running Smoothly
In addition to preventing engine damage and improving fuel efficiency, regular oil changes can also help to keep your car running smoothly. When your car’s engine oil is fresh and clean, it can help to reduce noise and vibration from the engine. This can make for a more pleasant driving experience overall.
- Helps Maintain Your Car’s Value
Finally, getting regular oil changes can also help to maintain your car’s value. When you take good care of your car and keep it well-maintained, it will hold its value better over time. This is especially important if you ever plan on selling or trade-in your car down the road.
