How Often Should You Change Your Oil

How Often Should You Change Your Oil

Regular oil changes are one of the most vital things you can do to maintain your vehicle's overall performance and durability. However, doing the job yourself can turn out to be a daunting task. Not only is it time-consuming and inconvenient, but it also requires you to get dirty and sometimes uncomfortable. Our highly-experienced technicians at Foundation Dodge Drayton Valley in Drayton Valley, Alberta, perform oil changes numerous times a day and can do your oil change faster and at a fraction of the expense of doing it yourself.

Why Do You Need a Regular Oil Change?

Oil has a significant impact on the performance and durability of your vehicle. It keeps engine parts greased and functioning correctly and cleans and cools your engine, preventing overheating and, in turn, increasing the life of your vehicle. Failure to bring your car in for regular oil maintenance can cause long-term damage to your vehicle and more money out of your pocket. Here are some other reasons you should schedule regular oil changes:

  • Keeps the engine lubricated - The engine is made up of many moving parts such as pistons, valves, and other parts, all moving at fast speeds. These components generate heat and severely degrade the engine if not properly lubricated.
  • Removes sludge and engine wear particles - Engines are susceptible to dirt particles that cause corrosion and shorten the life of an engine over time. Oil also degrades over time and turns into sludge. Oil and filter changes regularly help keep the engine running smoothly by removing debris and sludge.
