Oil Changes: Things You Should Know

Posted on May 27, 2015.

We’ve all heard the same thing; you should have your car’s oil changed every 3,000 miles.   But, what and why are the reasons for this?  What really happens at that 3,000-mile mark that makes it a necessity to change your oil?  Truth be told, it really depends on the make and model of your car that has to do with when the oil needs to be changed.  So whether it’s at the 3,000-mile mark or the 10,000-mile mark, the question still remains the same, what does an oil change really do for your car?

•    What’s the worst that could happen?

      o    By not changing your oil, you allow dirt, debris, and other impurities to accumulate under the hood.  These particles will degrade key engine parts, affecting its overall performance.  

      o    Oil means lubrication.  When your engine is not properly lubricated, the parts in your car have to work harder.  This means buildup of sludge in your engine and makes the engine have to do more work than it should.

•     Gas mileage

      o    By having your oil changed on a regular basis you can improve its gas mileage by an average of 4%.  While this may not seem like a lot, the miles on your car can add up quickly to make a huge difference!

•    An oil change is like going to the doctor’s for a check up

      o    Your car is something you use every single day.  So it’s a good idea to make sure that everything is operating correctly.  By bringing your car in for an oil change, Quality Lube Plus will have the opportunity to make sure everything about your car is running up to par.

•    Long live your car!

      o    No matter what kind of car you drive, there is no doubt that you want it to be running for as long as possible.  By regularly having your oil changed, you will ensure that your car or truck will run well for the lifetime of the vehicle.
