An oil change is one of the routine methods of upkeep on your car. Changing your oil regularly is imperative for the proper continued operation of your car. Check your owner's manual for the manufacturer's recommended period of time or number of miles between oil changes. In most cases, every 3 months, or 3,000 miles, is what's suggested.
Oil changes are important because your car uses it for several purposes. Oil serves as a lubricant for all of the moving parts of your engine. Without proper lubrication to ensure smooth interaction, parts can deteriorate from rough contact, and need fixing or replacing more often. The oil in your engine also draws heat away from the combustion systems, which keeps parts from cracking or buckling from excessive heat. It also helps keep your motor running cleanly. Engines accumulate dirt and grime from normal operation, and those built-up impurities hamper the ability of parts to cool, and to fit together properly. When your oil is drained and replaced, you can see the difference in color between new and used oil. The darkness of old oil comes from the dirt it removes from the engine.
