We hate to nag, but making sure your oil is changed regularly is perhaps the most important maintenance service you can have performed on your car, and Big A Auto Sales & Service is willing to risk a little nagging to get the message across. Did we mention you need to change your oil?
If you fail to have your oil changed on a regular basis, it can lead to many issues down the road. The main issue that can occur is the engine and all its components get too hot without proper lubrication. This causes the parts to warp and wear out. If you go too long without new oil, the metal-on-metal friction can heat-weld internal surfaces, rendering the engine useless, and engine replacements are not cheap!
Another important reason you want to refresh the oil in your vehicle is the accumulation of dirt. Over time, it is inevitable that you will pick up some particulates from the inside of the engine causing the oil to get dirty. Your oil filter will take care of this for a while but will eventually wear out as well and cease functioning. This causes the oil to be thick and harsh on the engine, leading to the same heat death mentioned before.
The good news, of course, is that an oil change done properly is quick, is inexpensive, and can help your engine run worry-free for hundreds of thousands of miles.
