Changing your oil and oil filter regularly is a key part of keeping your car running right. Most people know that you should get an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles—or as directed by your car’s owner’s manual. But, many people don’t know exactly why regular lube services are so important. Not only does proper oil circulation help keep your engine from overheating, the oil also lubricates the metal parts in your engine while carrying away tiny metal shavings created as these parts rub together. Over time, oil will break down and fill up with these gritty metal shavings, keeping it from circulating and doing its job effectively.
