Spring In With A New Oil Change

Spring time is coming! Make sure that you incorporate getting your oil changed into your spring cleaning routine. Oil is the blood of your car. It is important to keep clean oil in your car. Recently, we had a child come in with their parent to get an oil change. During the short wait, the child asked one of our staff members what would happen if you never changed the oil in your car. Many people know that you have to get regular oil changes to keep your car healthy, but few know why or what oil changes do.

Here is why you need regular oil changes

Oil is necessary to lubricant your engine. Without clean oil, it will stop lubricating your engine and it will eventually fail. If the oil isn’t changed, the additives like detergent and rust fighters will wear out and the engine will stop being lubricated. Dirt will also begin to accumulate in the oil making it thick which would cause more wear and tear on the engine.
