Why oil is to be changed?
Oil plays the most important role to safeguard engine’s parts damage.Oil keeps the engine cool by reducing the friction in-between moving parts while the parts are in motion. it also helps to avoid contaminants from depositing inside the engine. Throughout the normal course of a car’s operation, the oil slowly loses its strength to protect because of gradual contamination and heating/cooling cycles. The less driven vehicle on daily basis, the higher the contamination chances because the oil doesn’t reach it full operating temperature. The change of the oil filter is equally important. We must change the oil filter before it degrades and stops to clean the circulating oil. If it happens, the particles entering the engine won’t be cleaned out and blockage can happen in the oil path, damaging engine to a high degree, even possibly rendering it irreparable.
It is good to get the vehicle inspected as soon as you see these oil related signs or engine may get damaged beyond repair.
