According to autos.com, “Over 5% of the accidents that occur today are due to poor or a total lack of car maintenance.” Routine oil changes are a necessary part of proper car maintenance. According to the general rule, you should get an oil change every 4-6 months or 5,000 miles. Why is this so important? Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle. Without it, your car can’t function at its highest level. Oil changes remove harmful pollutants from your car’s system and lubricate your engine to reduce friction. They also ensure you get the best gas mileage out of your vehicle, saving you money at the gas pump. As important as it is to get your oil changed, it is equally important to make sure your car is getting the right oil. That’s why it’s important to hire out a professional to do the job right.
