Why do you need to regularly change the oil in your car?
Two major things will eventually happen to the oil in your car if you don’t change it.

  1. Dirt and debris will accumulate in the oil. The current filter will remove the dirt for a while, but eventually the filter will become clogged and the dirty oil will automatically bypass the filter through the relief valve. Dirty oil is thick and abrasive, so it causes more wear.
  2. The additives in the oil like dispersants, rust-fighters, detergents and friction reducers will wear out, so the oil won’t lubricate as well as it should.

Regularly changing your oil will help the oil work at it’s best and keep your engine running for a long time.
