Why Getting Regular Oil Changes is So Important

Why Getting Regular Oil Changes is So Important

As a Davenport, IA auto repair shop serving customers for over four decades, we want to share some of the reasons getting an oil change when it's time is so important. While getting the oil changed every 3,000 miles used to be the norm, today it's a bit higher as modern lubricants suggest you can go 5,000 miles or more before having the engine oil changed. Whatever guidelines you follow, be sure to have it done on a regular basis. Here's why. A cleaner engine means extended lifespan. Replacing an engine isn't cheap, but having the oil changed on a routine basis will keep your engine free from the dirt, dust, and other debris that can result in the build up of sludge in the engine. As oil circulates through your engine, these particles will accumulate in the oil. Dirt and debris can damage the engine, so it's important to change the oil regularly. Oil lubricates the engine and other critical components. Changing the oil filter is just as important, and in doing both ... read more
