Why Are Oil Changes So Important?

Simply put, oil changes help preserve your car's engine and keep it running smoothly and efficiently. Fresh oil acts as a lubricant and also does a great job at helping to clean the moving mechanical parts under your vehicle's hood. With every mile you drive, the chemical components found in motor oil begin to break down, losing the ability to effectively maintain the health of your engine. That's why we recommend getting an oil change every 3,000 miles or so, depending on where and how you drive.

Oil Change ServiceReplacing an old oil filter is also critical when it comes to basic car maintenance. Oil filters collect dirt and debris in their catches, preventing them from entering your engine. Over time, they too become ineffective at doing their job, and can become clogged. When this happens, the particles that the filter was once preventing from entering your engine are now coming in, which can lead to severe mechanical problems that are often very costly to fix.
