Why Are Oil Changes Important?

One of the most common services you will get, when you own a vehicle, is an oil change. But what does an oil change do specifically? Why is it important to get one?

There are a number of reasons why getting an oil change is important, but the main reason has to do with engine health. Your oil does a lot more than you may realize – for instance, it helps reduce friction, thereby reducing heat.

Over time your oil slowly becomes more and more sludgy, full of dirt, grime, and other particles that reduce your efficiency, increase friction, and ultimately harm your engine’s longevity.

When you get an oil change you are swapping out that sludgy, grimy, dirty oil for fresh oil. As you can imagine, that makes a world of difference underneath the hood.
