Why You Should Never Miss An Oil Change

There are many routine maintenance issues that you should perform on your Hyundai throughout the year, but one of the most common, and most important, is the simple oil change. This short and inexpensive car maintenance is essential for the life of your vehicle and must not be missed. Here are some reasons why you should never miss an oil change.

  • Lubrication - Your oil keeps your engine running smoothly. If your oil becomes too low or too sludgy it won't lubricate the engine parts properly, which will result in the metal parts rubbing against each other. If left for too long, your engine will eventually break down, resulting in a major engine repair.
  • Cleanliness - Besides lubricating your engine, the oil also keeps it clean. Even though your engine is tucked away, it can still receive damaging dirt, grime, and debris. The oil will pick up this dust and debris and bring it through the filter. The filter will catch whatever grime is collected, helping keep your engine running strong. Over time, your oil and your filter will need to be cleaned to prevent the debris from damaging your engine's parts.
  • Temperature - Your engine's oil also absorbs heat as it runs through your engine. This process helps cool your system down and will prevent it from overheating. As you drive, the oil will begin to break down and, if left unchanged, will begin to reflect heat, making your overheating issues more likely.
