Why Are Oil and Oil Filter Changes Necessary at All?

To understand the answer to this, you must first understand how your auto oil works. The oil in your car is essential for keeping it running smoothly. It keeps the engine parts lubricated, preventing the damage that can come from simple friction. This reduces engine wear and tear resulted by driving in streets of {City}. Without regular oil changes, your engine may be doing significant damage to itself. As a result, your car will not work as well and it certainly will not run for as long. Are you in the area?

How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

A common question about oil changes is the question of how often they need to be performed. The short answer is that it just depends. In the past, complete oil and filter changes were needed quite regularly. Today, technology has advanced enough that oil changes are needed much less frequently. With that said, the specific interval at which you should have your oil changed can vary depending on the type of vehicle you drive. Consulting the owner’s manual is a good place to begin, though as a rule of thumb, an interval of 7,500 miles or so is probably ideal. You can contact us at Meineke #1990 in Santa Maria CA for a more precise number.

What Happens if You Skip Your Oil Change?

When you don’t get your oil filter changed regularly, there can be a number of negative consequences. For starters, the engine will overheat. This means it will not be functioning at its peak level. Additionally, when your engine overheats, it can cause the components to become warped or corroded. Friction can also cause the same effect. The bottom line is that without a regular oil and oil filter change, your engine will simply stop working and will need to be replaced. This is obviously a major expense, but it can be avoided by simply sticking to a regular, routine oil change schedule at your local Meineke in Santa Maria CA.
