Why are oil changes necessary?
High operating temperatures eventually lead to the thermal breakdown of oil, making it less effective as a lubricant. Lubricant is essential in the prevention of engine parts rubbing together and wearing down.
There are also acid neutralizing additives in oil, which decrease in effectiveness over time. Additionally, oil eventually becomes saturated with dust, water and combustion residues that cause engine corrosion.
Without regular oil changes, your engine will not perform as long as it should. Oil performs many essential functions, and clean oil will perform much more efficiently than dirty oil. Oil changes provide a relatively inexpensive insurance policy against larger problems down the road.
