What Happens if You Choose Not to Change Your Oil Regularly?

Failing to regularly change your vehicle’s engine oil can result in a handful of negative effects on your vehicle’s performance and mechanical components, and in some cases, even full blown total engine failure.

If left unchanged, your car’s engine oil will begin to solidify and eventually become sludge over time. This accumulated sludge will hinder the function of critical parts such as the bearings, crankshafts, and camshafts from being lubricated. This lack of lubrication can cause intermittent engine overheating problems, blown gaskets, and even a full-blown engine failure, which might cost you your car. Because of this, maintaining the engine of your automobile and performing consistent oil changes at set intervals are in your best interest.

How Often Should You Change Your Oil? 

Your vehicle’s owner’s manual will provide the recommended engine oil and service intervals. The conventional or synthetic engine oil and service intervals for your particular vehicle can also be discussed with one of our helpful and educated service consultants.

As a general rule of thumb, most automakers recommend bringing in most late model vehicles every six months or 8000 km for an oil and filter change service, whichever comes first. This is to ensure that your vehicle is properly serviced and inspected for other potential problems in between service visits.
