Getting your oil changed every 3000 miles is one of the most well-known car maintenance tips, but many people may choose to put off an oil change far beyond this limit. You may believe that there’s no harm in neglecting to get your oil changed for a while or even never doing it at all, but you’ll be causing much more damage than you think.

1. Less Effective Oil

The main function of motor oil is to keep the entire engine lubricated in order to have all of the parts move smoothly and to move heat away from the motor. As oil moves through the system, it picks up dirt and grime. Over time, the oil just gets increasingly filthy until it starts gumming up the mechanics of the system rather than lubricating it. Oil changes ensure that your oil stays clean enough to work effectively.

2. Overheating Issues

Oil loses its ability to effectively move heat away from the motor if it’s too dirty or old. It doesn’t take long for overheating to become an issue, causing your vehicle to run roughly and possibly even break down regularly. If these overheating issues continue and get worse, the heat can warp and damage various parts of the engine, usually starting with the wiring and hoses. The longer the high temperatures continue, the more parts will be damaged. You can easily run up hundreds or even thousands of dollars in repairs and replacements without regular oil changes.

3. Engine Failure

Finally, the worst consequence of not getting an oil change on a regular basis is total engine failure. When this happens, the entire engine will need to be replaced. The cost of this procedure is usually so high that many people choose to sell or scrap the car instead of getting it replaced.

For affordable and quality oil changes, contact our ASE-certified technicians at Rebel Automotive for more information and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop serves vehicle owners in Henderson, NV, Las Vegas, NV, and North Las Vegas, NV.

Consider the risks of neglecting regular oil changes. It will actually save you money by taking care of a needed oil change rather than avoiding it.
