When should I get my oil changed?
The general rule of thumb is to get your oil changed every few thousand miles to ensure that your engine oil is clean and not causing any problems for your engine. Failing to get an oil change and waiting too long can result in costly maintenance and repair bills that could be easily avoided by getting it changed.
What happens if I wait too long for an oil change?
Eventually, dirt and other particles like dust and metal will build up in your engine oil causing unnecessary heat and friction which can lead to bigger problems down the road if left unattended. If you wait too long to get your oil changed, one of the more noticeable issues that can occur is the loss of gas mileage and engine performance. Even though your engine has a lot of horsepower, it is still a delicate machine and regular oil changes will go a long way to keeping your engine standing the test of time.
