Your vehicle relies on oil, lubrication and an oil filter to keep it running smoothly. Motor oil minimizes friction by lubricating, cleaning, and cooling critical internal engine components. Normal driving will cause motor oil to become contaminated with wear metals, water and even fuel. Every three months or 3,000 miles, your vehicle should be ready for an oil change.
An oil change involves draining out old motor oil and replacing it with fresh motor oil. The oil filter is usually replaced at the same time. Oil serves many crucial functions, and clean oil performs these functions better than dirty oil — while helping to protect your vehicle from major repairs down the road.
Regularly changing your car’s engine oil and filter is one of the most important things you can do to keep your car running smoothly. This is because, over time, oil breaks down and the filter becomes clogged with contaminants.
