If you want your vehicle to run correctly and last a long time, you need to keep up with its routine maintenance. Several parts of the car need to be checked often, and you need to have the oil changed regularly.
Most mechanics will recommend that you have your oil changed every 3,000 miles for conventional oil. If you use semi-synthetic oil, you could go 5,000 miles before you need to have the oil changed. With full-synthetic motor oil in your vehicle, you can go as far as 10,000 miles before scheduling an oil change. This is because the newer oils contain engine lubricants that enable them to last longer.
Engine oil is essential because it absorbs the heat in the engine, and it helps remove contaminants from the moving parts of the engine. The oil also keeps the components in the engine lubricated. Over time, the oil can start to break down. When this happens, it won't absorb the heat or lubricate the parts as well. Also, dirt and debris can get into the oil, causing it to become corroded.
If you don't have your oil changed regularly, you could end up with a costly bill from the mechanic. When the oil is inadequate and isn't absorbing the heat and keeping the parts lubricated, the wear and tear can destroy the engine. When this happens, you would either need to replace the engine or buy a new vehicle. Rather than dealing with these expensive costs, you should have your oil changed regularly.
