Why Get Oil Changes?

If you don’t get regular oil changes, what really happens?

Here’s a great video showing exactly how important it is to get your regularly scheduled oil changes. The short answer is that your oil will get dirtier and dirtier. This article shows the analysis of oil in a situation where a car didn’t get its regular oil changes. It’s not pretty – there’s metal showing engine wear and other particles like dust and so on. The oil will become abrasive, instead of protecting your engine from friction. It will provide very little lubrication and your engine will be forced to work with all of those contaminants rubbing up against things.

If your car loses oil, either through a leak or through burning, don’t think that simply adding new oil is going to fix the issue. Without a proper oil change, you’ll still have built up gunk that won’t go away. You need to change out the filter as well as fully replacing the fluid.

Now, do you have to get the oil change every 3000 miles? It depends. Here’s a resource to see how often you should get an oil change, given perfect driving conditions. It’s doubtful that conditions are perfect, so you probably want to be more conservative than the tool suggests.
