Why Oil Changes are Important

The motor oil that flows through your engine is there to make sure everything stays clean, cooled, and lubricated. The older your oil gets, however, the harder it is to accomplish this process. That's because it will start to break down and collect any dirt it finds. This will eventually result in the development of a thick sludge that can be quite harmful to your engine.  

When to Have Your Oil Changed

How often oil should be changed has a lot to do with the type that you're using. If you drive an older car that runs on conventional oil, you should go between 3,000 and 5,000 miles before getting the oil changed. The synthetic oil used in newer cars can allow as many as 7,500 miles between changes.

It should be noted that factors like driving behavior, road conditions, and a vehicle's age can significantly lessen the length of time you should wait before changing your oil again. Here are a few indications that it might be due for a change: 

  • The oil change light turns on
  • The check engine light turns on
  • The engine is running louder than usual
  • Your oil is dirty
