What's so Important about Getting my Oil Changed?

Engine oil is the life blood of the automobile.  It provides three vital functions to keep an engine running as it should be. First, it prevents dirt and grime from building up in your engine and clogging it up.  Secondly, it keeps the engine components well lubricated and working together smoothly. Finally, engine oil is used to dissipate some of the heat from inside your engine.

One of the very serious and real possibilities of not keeping up with the oil is that your engine can completely lock up on you.  This happens when your engine has been running to long with no oil and has gotten too hot. If this happens to your engine, there is a chance that you will have to totally scrap that engine and get a totally new one.  Ouch.

How Often Do I Need to Change my Oil?

For many years, the conventional wisdom has been changing your oil every 3,000 miles, however, this is no longer the case with modern synthetic oil solutions. You should consult your owners' manual for the suggested interval. Under ideal conditions when using synthetic oil, if you drive a lot of short distances, an oil change is recommended every 5,000 miles. However, if you do a great deal of highway and long-distance driving on I-75, then you should ideally change your oil every 7,500 miles.  However, conditions are seldom ideal, so your mileage may vary. It's important to check your oil levels consistently and get the advice of your mechanic.

Choosing the Right Oil for Your Vehicle

Choosing the right oil for your vehicle is a small, but fairly important decision.  It is highly recommended to look into your owner's manual to see what form of oil that you need for your vehicle. You want to choose the type of oil is specially designed to work with your car. Getting higher-grade synthetic oil can also elongate the time that you have in between oil changes.  So when it comes to choosing your oil, talk to your mechanic to make the best decision for your vehicle.
