Wondering why it’s so important to change your oil on a regular basis? Here are three reasons to never make you delay it again! When you ignore these reasons, your car will break down, and this will cost you a lot of money!
- Oil gets contaminated
Even though the modern lubricants contain additives that will keep your engine clean, after a while there will be certain impurities in the oil because of the combustion process within the engine. Soot particles, for example, can form deposits and clog your filter.
- Oil gets thicker
When the additives in the oil diminish, the oil is no longer able to disperse soot or neutralize acids. As a result your oil will become thicker, which means that it will no longer be able to reach all the different engine parts, or take way too much time to do so. Because of this there will be more friction which means your engine gets damaged and can overheat.
- Decrease in engine protection
Thanks to the latest innovative additive packages, your oil contains chemical components that protect your engine against wear damage, such as anti-wear, corrosion inhibitors, etc. When these elements break down your oil will no longer contribute to the protection of your engine, and it will become more susceptible to corrosion and rust.
