Why Do I Need to Change My Oil?
Motor oil is vital to your engine health and your car’s overall performance. It lubricates the rapidly-moving parts in your engine to prevent them from rubbing against each other and creating damaging friction. It also helps to keep your engine cool by dissipating heat.
Over time, as oil moves throughout your engine, it collects debris, and becomes less effective at performing its job. Not only can that lead to irreparable engine damage, but it can also decrease your car’s performance and efficiency.
In fact, a car operating with dirty oil may experience slower-than-normal acceleration and require more frequent fuel stops, among other things.
Signs You Need an Oil Change
In addition to performance issues, your car will give you other signs that it’s due for fresh oil, including:
- A knocking sound in the engine
- Decreased fuel efficiency
- Darkly colored oil
- An oil smell in the cabin
These are good signs to look for, but by the time you notice them, chances are you’re overdue. It’s best to not wait for these signals, and instead, to be proactive about your car’s oil change needs.
Your vehicle may be equipped with an oil change indicator that’ll let you know when you’re due for a change, but it’s also important to never exceed 10,000 miles or one year (whichever comes first) between oil changes, regardless of what your oil change indicator says.
For your car’s exact needs, be sure to check your owner’s manual or contact your local Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership for advice.
