If you want your car to run for as long as you own it, then regular oil changes are essential. In and Out Tires will help you with Millsboro auto care and regular oil changes.

You spent a fun few hours over the weekend with the kids fishing at Millsboro Pond. Afterwards, you took them for ice cream and then home again. As you pulled into your driveway, you saw it – your oil change light had come on. You had one of those reactions that’s a mixture of dismay and irritation. Oil changes aren’t expensive, and they don’t take long, but they do take time out of your busy schedule. And they always seem to come due at the worst possible time.

What if you just blew off the oil change for awhile?

Probably nothing much in the very short term. But, in the longer term, you’d be doing a lot of potential damage to your engine and shortening its life at the very least.

“Failing to change the oil and the filter on time means you’re running your motor with essentially dirty oil. Dirt and debris in an engine are normal, but it’s supposed to get cycled through the oil filter which will catch the contaminants and keep them there,” motorbiscuit.com explains. “If the filter is too full of debris, dirt and grime will pass through and get cycled back into the engine over and over until the oil and filter get changed. Contaminants in the oil will cause the motor’s moving parts to wear down, and they’ll ultimately break, damaging the engine.”

Oil changes also serve another function by alerting you to other problems before they become serious – and expensive.

Motorbiscuit.com adds, “Changing your oil on time is essential if you want to keep your vehicle running as long as you own it. It can also alert you to any potential problems brewing with your engine, that you weren’t aware of, especially if you haven’t been checking the oil level in between changes. In most cases, catching those issues early can save you a lot of money in the long run. Perform regular maintenance, because the cost of maintaining a car is much lower than the cost would be to repair extensive damage, especially if you could’ve avoided it.
