Not changing your oil as recommended by you vehicle's manufacturer can result in serious damage to you vehicles engine. One of our main services at Kwik Kar Willow Bend is changing oil and while we would love nothing more than to have everyone change there oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months, today you may be able to extend that interval. Many of today's modern synthetic oils can last to 5,000 or even 7,000 miles. Your driving habits and environment can have a major impact on this interval but often if you are using the correct synthetic motor oil, 3,000 miles is no longer the magic number for changing your oil. It is best to always check, what your manufacturer suggest.

But what if I do not change my oil very often?

Back in May of 2013 Cars.com published an article "Why Oil Matters" and in that article they highlighted some of the disheartening effects of not changing your oil. The following is a excerpt from that article,

"In short, it's not pretty.One of the problems is that there will begin to be buildup in the cooler parts of the engine, like the crankcase and around the camshafts and valves. This can lead to carbon deposits, or sludge, coming out of the old oil. That could require an expensive engine cleaning or force you to replace worn-out piston rings. It can get worse. The pistons could eventually seize or the camshafts could be damaged. Getting a bill for either one of these repairs would make even a few high-quality oil changes look like pocket change. Consider regular oil changes to be like really cheap insurance for your engine." Read the whole article at Cars.comDirty oil motor

While the picture to the left is an extremely dirty engine, we have unfortunately seen similar sights far to often and I can assure you this customer was not visiting the shop for an oil change. The lack of properly schedules oil changes had already damaged vital engine components. A customer with an engine like this may have thought they were saving money but forgoing regular oil changes but the cost of the repairs resulting from failure to change your oil in a timely manner is almost always going to exceed the savings from not doing a simple oil change, very often by thousands of dolars!

Your fuel economy may also be negatively impacted buy not missing those regularly scheduled oil changes. Cars Direct makes this assursion in an article entitled  "How Oil Change Affects Gas Mileage" from January 2012. While this makes logical sense from the standpoint, if all the part are moving smoothing with minimal friction you should get better mileage but we cannot find any empirical studies demonstrating the savings. Even if there are mileage benefits from synthetic oil those savings are probably not going to off set the cost difference between conventional and synthetic oils. However the extended oil change interval using synthetic oil will ultimately save you money What can be stated without hesitation is that proper oil changes at the correct specified interval can save you literately thousands of dollars in early repairs.
