Take a few moments to look over some of the most asked questions about getting your oil changed as well as what happens if you wait too long to get your oil changed.
HOW LONG CAN I WAIT TO GET MY OIL CHANGED?
It is recommended to get your oil changed every few thousand miles, even though there is a lot of answers to this question, that is the general consensus and is a good measure of how often you should get your oil changed.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF I WAIT TOO LONG TO GET MY OIL CHAGED?
Waiting longer than a few thousand miles in between oil chages can have devastating effects on your engine as well as other parts of your vehicle. After your engine oil begins to break down over time, it starts to collect dust and other particles that can cause your engine to heat up and experience more friction which will eventually wear down the parts inside the engine. Loss of gas mileage as well as overall engine performance can also occur if you wait too long, it is a good idea to follow the few thousand mile rule and keep your engine oil clean for a healthier engine and less maintenance costs.
