Expert Auto Repair Tips
The main function of engine oil is to lubricate all moving parts, such as valves and pistons, so they can move without grinding on each other. Low oil levels or contaminated oil will cause these parts to wear much faster than they would with fresh oil.
As oil moves through the engine it collects dust, dirt and other debris that may have made its way into the internal parts of the engine. As it collects these impurities it turns the oil into a muddy mixture that can get stuck in certain areas and cause the engine to run less efficiently and drop your MPGs. Changing the oil cleans this sludge out.
Clogged Oil Filter
When you get your oil changed the service professional will also change your oil filter. The oil filter removes impurities from clean oil as it circulates through the engine. But the longer the car is ran without a new one the more clogged it gets, which prevents good oil from getting into the engine.
Engine oil helps absorb heat generated by the moving parts of the engine. However dirty oil will not absorb it as well. To help regulate the engine temperature and reduce chances of overheating have the oil changed regularly.
