Motor oil, in conjunction with your car’s oil filter, play a very important role in the operation of your vehicle. The motor oil acts as a lubricant to reduce wear on the engine, thereby decreasing heat and curbing corrosion. The oil filter works to remove particles and sludge that can clog up the engine over time. Regular oil changes are necessary to prevent problems down the line. Costly repairs can occur if regular maintenance is not completed.
The frequency at which you should get an oil change is based on how long the oil has been in use at elevated temperatures and how many cycles at those temperatures the oil has been used. This will vary from vehicle to vehicle, but the general guideline is about every three months or every 3,000 miles.
