Part of helping keep the vehicle in the best condition possible is to make sure the oil is changed when scheduled. The oil is an essential lubricant that is needed for the engine of your vehicle. The oil helps to allow metal to press against metal without any damage to parts or the vehicle. Also, the oil lubricates the pistons as they move up and down in the cylinders of the vehicle. Without the oil, the metal against metal friction will create an excessive amount of heat. This could then cause the surfaces to end up welding themselves together and the engine would seize up.
The motor oil lubricates and cools the moving parts for the engine of the vehicle. Without new clean oil, the engine will begin to wear down. This is because the metal on metal components can grind against one another. This will lead to extensive wear and tear to these parts. Not having clean oil, or having a level that is too low, can cause serious issues for your vehicle. By going to oil changes, you can help to alleviate the build up of sludge or varnish.
Motor oil will degrade over time because of temperatures, pressure, and contamination it will have. With time, dirt will start to accumulate in the oil. This can lead to the oil filter becoming clogged. The filter is designed to remove dirt from the oil. When we change the oil, we can also check the oil filter.
