Because of the freezing temperatures that have hit most parts of the country during these last few weeks of winter, your vehicle may have become a little noisier and more sluggish than usual. Is it time for an oil change? Not only will your vehicle run quieter and smoother after an oil change, but it gives an opportunity for your mechanic to check out the other systems of your car for any pending problems.

The question often comes up—what kind of oil should you use and how often should you change the oil in your car? Some drivers think that because they aren’t having any car problems they don’t need to pay the price for high-quality oil changes. Or, perhaps they can extend the mileage interval between oil changes? Check your owner’s manual or ask your auto mechanic for guidance on oil changes for your specific vehicle.

Remember, just because you aren’t experiencing any symptoms doesn’t mean problems don’t exist. The damage to an engine caused by neglecting oil changes or by using inferior oil may not be noticed until later down the road. For maximum engine protection, it’s worth the extra cost to use high-quality oil at the right intervals.

Why use high-quality oil?

  • Older engines beyond the manufacturer’s warranty period are more prone to wear and tear. Regular oil changes ensure better lubrication for the protection and longevity of the engine.
  • Lower quality motor oils can distribute harmful contaminants in the engine’s lubricating system, contributing to sludge build-up (can be a combination of dirt, soot, partially burned fuel, oxidized motor oil, coolant, and condensed water vapor). Good-quality motor oil keeps contaminants separated and held in suspension. Regular oil changes will drain these contaminants out rather than leaving them behind to form sludge.
  • Severe driving (constant stop-and-go trips, short-trips, and frequent towing) creates tough conditions for an engine so that it has to work harder to move your vehicle. The oil change intervals for this type of driving are about half of the normal driving intervals (long stretches on the flat open road).

Did you know? To make frequent, high-quality oil changes affordable for customers, many auto shops provide oil change coupons.
