The oil’s job in your car is to provide a lubricating film between the moving parts of the engine to decrease the friction and its negative effects on engine’s parts. An oil filter is used to remove contaminants from the engine oil to make sure these contaminants don’t saturate the oil and cause it to wear on the engine parts.
When to get an Oil Change
It is recommended that a car’s oil be changed every 3,000 to 3,500 miles in order to ensure that the lubricating oil isn’t overused and becomes inefficient. Regularly getting your oil changed on this interval can sustain the life of your engine and minimize the wear that leads to multiple other engine issues.
