Why Should I Change My Oil?

Your engine consists of moving parts that are the driving force behind you engine. In fact, the RPM gauge you may see on your dashboard indicates the amount of cycles your engine has gone through in a minute. Depending on your car and driving habits, your engine can be moving through as little as 1,000 RPMs or as many as 12,000 RPMs. Due to the speed at which engines are required to move, oil is needed to lubricate the engine parts, disperse heat, and absorb any dirt or contaminants that have entered the engine. Over time, the oil additives begin to break down and get dirty from absorbing all the contaminants. This causes the oil to lose its ability to lubricate your engine. If your oil gets too old or dirty, it can cause your engine to seize because of poor lubrication and dirt build up.
