You may be wondering why oil changes are important.  Contaminated oil blocks the flow of oil through the engine of your vehicle, causing it to overheat and possible damage to the engine. Keeping the oil fresh and clean with regular oil changes will help prevent oil deposits from clogging the lines of the motor. So that customers will keep up with regular oil changes, many auto shops offer oil change coupons for specials discounts.

So what causes these oil deposits? With summer just around the corner, this is a good question. Hot temperatures will cause oil to solidify and bake onto the surface of whatever it happens to be in, such as critical engine components. It loses its viscosity and becomes a sticky goop that makes your engine work harder than usual just to keep running.

How do you know when you need an oil change? If regular oil change services are neglected, before long you will start to notice an increase in engine problems as the oil deposits collect. As the oil thickens, instead of cleaning, lubricating, and cooling your engine, it will start to clog the passageways, contributing to overheating and internal damage to the engine.

Even though you think your vehicle may not be as prone to oil deposits as some, be smart and take these preventative measures to keep your vehicle’s engine healthy:

  • Follow the interval schedule for oil changes recommended in your owner’s manual.
  • Schedule an inspection of your engine if your car has increasing problems with hard starting, misfiring, running hot, low oil indicator light, or a faulty oxygen sensor.
  • Use synthetic oil if you can, but at the least, use the type of oil recommended in your owner’s manual.
  • Do your research on additives--they may react chemically with your oil and actually cause more bad than good.
