Engine oil is a critical fluid for the well-being of your car. In addition to cooling the engine, oil lubricates the engine parts to prevent premature wear. But engine oil doesn’t last very long before it becomes contaminated and loses its ability to perform these vital functions. Experts recommend changing engine oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles if you have conventional oil, or every 7,500 to 9,000 miles if you use synthetic oil. Driving on old or polluted engine oil can cause your engine to overheat, which wears out the engine and has the potential to cause immediate engine failure. Over the long run, changing oil regularly will help extend the life of your car’s engine and reduce the chances of car trouble.
