Total car care experts offer the most important reasons to routinely change a vehicle’s oil :
Engines are made up of many moving parts, and those parts need to be properly lubricated to avoid damage.
Oil in the engine provides this vital function. Over time, that oil breaks down and becomes contaminated with dust, dirt and debris from the engine as well as the environment.
When that happens, oil can’t properly do its job.
A recent study by the Car Care Council of the Be Car Care Aware campaign stated that 22% of vehicles have low or dirty engine oil.
Proactively changing a vehicles’ oil and filter will help the engine continue to work at its best and prevent costly repairs to drivers down the road.
Compare the average cost of a years’ worth of oil changes ($120) to the cost of not proactively maintaining a vehicle’s engine ($4,000)* and the benefit to both wallets and vehicle well-being is clear.
The total car care experts at Grease Monkey are sharing the top reasons oil and filter changes are so important to a car’s well-being.
