Purpose of Engine Oil
An oil change is a service that we are taught has to be performed regularly when we start driving our first car. However, it isn’t always expressed just how important the oil change is, and why it needs to be done so frequently. Clean motor oil has an important job within your vehicle - it circulates throughout the engine and acts as a lubricant, meaning that it coats parts. This lubrication protects against metal-to-metal contact, which can cause damage to parts. The lubrication also acts as a temperature regulator, absorbing heat from the engine to protect against overheating.
As the motor oil moves through your vehicle’s engine, it also picks up debris and dirt along the way and the oil filter picks this up as the oil circulates through it. This fights against the buildup of sludge and grime on critical engine components.
What Happens if I Skip Oil Changes?
So, what happens when you skip your vehicle’s regular oil change? Low or dirty motor oil can lead to some severe problems with the engine. Engine parts can sustain damage due to rubbing against each other, engine parts can lose effectiveness due to dirt or grime, and the engine can overheat.
The outcome of skipping an oil change can cost you both time and money on repairs, which is why it is so critical to have your oil, lube, and filter service performed on time here at our Baltimore and Cockeysville auto repair shops.
