Why are Oil Changes so Important?

From the moment you first get your vehicle, you become aware of how often you need to stop by the shop and get your oil changed. We know that sometimes it can be a hassle, especially if your vehicle needs an oil change every 3 months. The good news is - an oil change is typically an affordable vehicle service. But have you ever wondered, why are oil changes so important? 

The engine is one of the most important components in your vehicle, and your regular oil change is what ensures that your engine stays lubricated and protected. Motor oil has a number of different jobs when it comes to ensuing your vehicle's engine runs smoothly. It lubricates engine parts to protect them from overheating and also from becoming damaged from rubbing up against other metal components. It also helps keep your engine clean by picking up dirt and grime buildup that can affect overall performance. 

When you skip your regular oil change, you run the risk of causing damage to your engine which can be extremely costly to repair. This is why we recommend never missing an oil change here at Small World Auto Center. For all of your oil change needs, bring your vehicle into our shop today!
