Improve gas mileage:
One thing that getting an oil change does is help the efficiency of your engine. Poor lubrication of the engine leads to an increase in the amount of fuel that is being consumed by the system. Routine changes, with the right oil, can improve the gas mileage, over time, by up to 1-2%. While this seems like a small number, it adds up over the year, especially if you are someone who has to be driving a lot. As you can see, just getting regular oil changes can help you save money every time you’re at the gas station.
Inside of an engine are a lot of moving parts and components. Just picture the different valves and pistons that are moving near each other at high rates of speed. Without being properly lubricated, these systems create a lot of heat, and will actually eventually wear down the engine itself dramatically. However, once you introduce oil into the picture, you are lowering the friction, and the heat, while allowing everything to run like it should be. This means your engine will not be damaged, and as stated above, you can even save on gas!
Removes particles and sludge:
While we’ve talked about why oil itself is important and helpful, we haven’t talked about what happens when oil isn’t actually changed out. One thing that you need to know is what sludge is, and how it hurts your engine. Sludge is when oil breaks down, and adds in dirty and dust particles. Sludge causes corrosion, and can even end up clogging the oil filter. This leads to major issues with the engine itself, which can result in repairs that cost far more than just a simple oil change.
