If you think an oil change is just about topping up your existing oil, think again. There are actually multiple steps to the process:
As oil is used by your engine, sludge and dirt build up, which can put stress on your engine and diminish your fuel efficiency. Adding new oil without removing the old oil only mixes up the sludge with the fresh oil, so it continues to take a toll on your engine.
The last thing any vehicle owner wants to hear is that they have engine problems. Engine failures are notoriously expensive to repair. In many cases, if your engine fails, you may need to consider getting a new car instead of fixing it.
Getting regular oil changes drastically reduces the risk of something going wrong with your engine. Sticking to a regular schedule of oil changes protects all of the components of your engine and ensures it operates at its peak level of performance.
Oil changes are fast and affordable, but the benefits are tremendous for your vehicle.
