With the loosening of stay-at-home orders, you may be driving your car more. That means it’s time to make sure it’s still in good shape after several weeks of sitting – or of limited driving. One of the best ways to start is with preventive maintenance, also known as regular maintenance, such as an oil change. That’s especially important if, like many drivers, you were a bit behind on that oil change. 

What’s the big problem with delaying scheduled oil changes? The answer is that you’re risking your engine. First, you might simply run out of oil, which would burn your engine up. Or, dirty oil might be gumming up your engine.

“After prolonged exposure to high heat, engine oil can oxidize and break down, forming deposits known as sludge. This gelatinous goo can block vital oil passages, resulting in thousands of dollars in damage or even requiring an engine replacement,” according to consumerreports.org. Consumerreports.org notes that sludge ” often results from poor upkeep, notably not changing the oil at prescribed intervals.”

So it makes sense to get that oil changed when it’s due.  While it’s being changed, have your auto care specialist check out other fluids, your hoses, your tires, battery and brakes. It’s a good time to catch any little problems before they become major issues.
