Why You Shouldn’t Ignore That Sticker: The Importance of Oil Changes

importance of oil changesWhen it comes to making sure that your vehicle runs smoothly, safely, and efficiently, the number one way you can drive with peace of mind is by staying on top of all routine vehicle maintenance – starting with regular oil changes.

The importance of oil changes really cannot be understated, making it vital that you never find yourself slacking when it comes to scheduling oil change appointments.

Engine oil works hard to lubricate the many working mechanics inside a vehicle, ensuring that they run properly and efficiently. It also absorbs heat, reducing friction between those rugged car parts.

But over time, engine oil begins to break down, become less effective, and can even become saturated with debris. This means that the mechanics in your car could be scraping against each other dangerously, while potentially overheating your engine.

Luckily, it’s incredibly easy and fast to get your oil changed at a dealership – like West Point Lincoln – and you can even change your oil at home. Your owner’s manual will recommend which type of oil to use and how often to change it.
