I Haven't Changed My Oil, So What? | Wichita Auto Care

Regular oil changes will keep your car’s engine running the way it did the day you bought your vehicle. Tracy’s Automotive can help you with that.

You were on your way home from the Celebrate Aviation event at the Kansas Aviation Museum when the oil change light on your dash caught your eye. To be honest, you have no idea how long it’s been on, but it’s been awhile. You just never seem to get around to changing the oil. But that’s okay. Right?

No, it’s not okay. Putting off an oil change for a short time won’t do major damage to your engine. But delay for too long and you’re risking major, expensive damage to your engine.

“If you don’t perform regular maintenance, you risk causing damage to some of your vehicle’s parts. You can replace them, but some will cost you more than you want to pay, namely your car’s engine,” motorbiscuit.com says. “It’s important to perform regular oil changes to keep the motor running as well as it did when you purchased it. Changing the oil is an essential part that you shouldn’t take lightly because if you fail to do it on time, you can have a costly disaster on your hands.”

Oil is designed to keep your engine parts clean and well lubricated.

“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. 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,” motorbiscuit.com explains.
