Don't Skip The Oil Change

A lot of us grew up with the same instructions: change your oil every 3,000 miles. We never questioned why, or what would happen if we didn’t follow through. While times have changed (and so has the variety of oil available!), the reasons behind regular oil changes have not. Here’s a brief overview:

What the Oil Does
The oil in your car or truck does a lot to keep your car running smoothly. The most important job is to lubricate the engine and carry heat away from your engine. As the oil in your vehicle circulates through your engine, it continuously lubricates the thousands of engine components that have to work together in order to make your car operational. At the same time, as the oil moves around the engine, it draws the heat that the engine produces away from the engine.
