WHY GET AN OIL CHANGE?
It’s important to receive regular oil changes because oil plays an important part in the operation of your vehicle. Over time, as it moves through your engine, your oil can pick up debris and other particles, causing it to become sluggish and less effective at doing its two main jobs:

Your engine is made up of many parts that rapidly most past each other during operation. Engine oil helps to lubricate these parts so that they don’t rub up against each other and create damaging friction. This movement can also cause a lot of heat buildup, which the viscous nature of oil helps to dissipate. This helps to prevent your engine from overheating.
If your oil is dirty, not only will you notice a possible performance decrease, but your engine may eventually experience irreparable and costly damage.
The good news is, if you’re diligent about having this simple routine service performed, your oil should stay clean and your engine should operate as intended.
