The oil in your car not only lubricates the working parts that keep it moving and the engine, but it also absorbs heat, ensuring that your vehicle doesn’t become too hot and break down.
That is why the importance of changing your oil really cannot be understated. Without fresh oil, many aspects of your vehicle can be affected and even break entirely, causing you costly repairs – or worse – a collision.
Additionally, any dirt or grit that makes its way into your car can get into the oil, ultimately spreading throughout the inside of your car. Simply replacing your old oil with fresh oil should wash out most of this debris.
Fortunately, oil is easy to check and replace, and most vehicles come with an owner’s manual that specifically states how frequently the oil needs to be changed. Of course, if you drive on harsher roads than average, you may want to change the oil more frequently.
If you are ever worried about the state of your oil, be sure to have it checked out by a professional. For more service information, contact us at Steet-Ponte Mazda.
