Why is Changing Your Engine’s Oil Important?
The Benefits of Getting Your Honda’s Oil Changed
Car oils play an incredibly important role in every car’s engine. The main role of motor oil is to lubricate your car’s engine and remove impurities such as dirt, deposits and oil sludge to make sure that all internal parts are running as smoothly as possible.
The engine parts continuously move from the moment you start your car until the moment you turn it off. Imagine the moving metal engine parts rubbing against each other with a thick oil filled with particles and sludge rubbing between them. There will be excess friction and resistance that will cause accelerated wear and possible damage to your car that will cost you later.
Now imagine fresh wet oil creating a smooth layer of slickness for the engine’s parts to move, creating optimal conditions for performance. You will not only preserve your engine but also get better mileage and performance out of your Honda on all your trips around Washington.
The longer the oil stays at your engine the thicker it becomes, which is why it is required to be changed at around 3000 miles for conventional oil users and 7500 miles for synthetic oil users.
Car oils also help in maintaining the temperature inside the engine. Good quality oil provides proper lubrication to the engine parts to avoid friction that causes excess heat that could possibly lead to overheating.
Buying a car is an investment and the longer you benefit on your investment the better. Regular oil changes will prolong the usage of your car, so if you aim for longevity of your engine then you should invest in having regular oil changes.
It is actually more economical to invest in having regular oil changes than paying for the damage on your car in the long run. Talk to our service professionals or consult your owner’s manual to find out when you should change your oil and what type your Honda’s engine needs.
