The Importance of an Oil Change

Oil is the magic fluid that keeps your engine running day after day. It lubricates all the moving parts of your engine so that it will run smoothly and efficiently. In addition, the oil helps keep small particles, dirt, or grit from scratching and damaging all the parts that need to fit tightly. Even heat can break your oil down into a mixture that is too watery or gummy for the engine parts to move effectively. Clean oil is essential for maintaining fuel efficiency and performance. 

Know When to Change Your Oil

You already know that you should generally change your oil every 3 months or 3,000 but you may also want to look at your owner’s manual to see what the manufacturer suggests, or call an experienced Auto Tech Centers technician at (815) 385-7300. You may need oil changes more frequently if you drive in harsh conditions or you put a lot of wear and tear on your engine. An oil check or quick glance at your oil life monitor may also give you a clue that it is time to take your vehicle into the shop.
