There is one key maintenance item on the list of required and recommended service for automobiles. The number one listed item is an oil change for engine longevity reasons.

Why is changing your oil so important, you ask? Because, as the car runs, the engine heats up. As it gets hot, that heat is transferred to the oil. Oil burns as it comes into contact with the ignitions going on in the engine as the cylinders fire. As the oil burns a little, and heats up a little, it begins to break down.

Oil acts as a barrier between the moving parts of your engine. When it breaks down, that barrier becomes thinner, causing more heat to be generated, and causing more wear on the engine parts. The additives also begin to break down, and the cleaning additives break apart, resulting in a dirty engine.

Now, instead of a clean, smoothly running engine, you have a filthy, hot, inefficient engine. What will prevent this? An oil change!

Look at your car's operating manual, and find the recommended times to change your oil. Changing oil frequently, according to the guidelines, ensures that your car's engine isn't running too hot and that it is being cleaned properly. Regularly scheduled maintenance is key to the success of owning and operating a vehicle. Oil changes are the key to keeping an engine running smoothly.

For even more efficiency, use synthetic oil if your vehicle can handle it. It breaks down at higher temperatures than conventional oil, and it contains additives that last longer under more extreme temperatures. Your dealer will be able to tell you if synthetic oil is appropriate for your particular vehicle.

Remember, the key to a smoothly running engine is timely oil changes!
