There are five main reasons why you should regularly change your oil. For starters, regular oil changes help maintain engine lubrication, which in turn stops the heat created from all your engine’s moving parts from wearing down your engine. Secondly, regular oil changes help keep your engine components cool, which, again, saves your engine and optimizes its longevity. Thirdly, regular oil changes help remove engine wear particles and sludge that build up over time and can cause corrosion and decrease the life of your engine. Regular oil changes also help improve your engine’s fuel efficiency, as poor engine lubrication leads to increased fuel consumption. Last but not least, regular oil changes make sure your engine and all of its moving parts don’t have to work as hard, which means your engine and everything that goes along with it is going to last longer.
