Oil is a crucial fluid for your vehicle and it serves a few important functions. The main function of oil is to keep the moving metal parts in your engine well-lubricated so they can move fluidly and not create friction when they rub together, so the risk of overheating is reduced.
It also helps cool the parts to reduce the heat that’s generated. Lastly, oil keeps the parts clean by absorbing the grease and debris to further ensure that the parts are able to move without any issue.
It’s never good to put off automotive service, especially if it’s vital for your vehicle. The oil change is no different. If you put off your oil change, your oil will begin to decrease its effectiveness at keeping the moving metal parts cool, clean, and well-lubricated. After a while, oil becomes thicker and darker, due to the absorption of the grease and debris, as well as its prolonged exposure to engine heat.
You may begin noticing that your vehicle isn’t performing as smoothly and efficiently. You’ll also run the risk of having your engine overheat because the oil isn’t sufficient enough to reduce the friction. After enough time without an oil change, your engine could seize up, which could result in costly repairs or even a full replacement.
Given the effects, it’s always good to just keep up with your oil changes.
