What Happens When You Don’t Get Your Car Oil Changed?
We all know oil changes are due every 3,000 miles, but sometimes life gets in the way and the task keeps getting pushed down your to-do list, right? Or maybe you forget about it completely once that handy windshield reminder sticker fades away in the sun. Either way, missing out on your regular oil changes sets you up for serious problems down the road.
Oil is the lifeblood of your car’s engine, lubricating the metal components to prevent them from coming into contact with each other and drawing heat away from the engine. It does its job best when it’s fresh and clean, but it can only stay that way for so long. The problem with letting oil changes slide is that you won’t know how big of a problem you’re causing until it’s too late.
✔ PHASE 1 – Build Up of Dirt and Debris.
✔ PHASE 2 – Engine Parts starts to wear down.
✔ PHASE 3 – Oil Additives Lose Effectiveness.
✔PHASE 4 – High Heat Warps Engine Parts.
✔ PHASE 5 – Oil turns To Sludge.
✔ PHASE 6 – Complete Engine Failure . . . .
DON’T LET AN INEXPENSIVE SERVICE TURN INTO A THOUSAND-DOLLAR PROBLEM
Getting your car’s oil changed is one of the least expensive maintenance services available, and most oil changes can be completed in less than a half hour. Unless you want to send your car to an early grave at the scrap yard or pay thousands to replace your engine, stick to your regularly scheduled maintenance plan.
