Why do I need to change my oil?

At Wayside Garage in Seaside, California, we're all about keeping your car running well and for a long time. One essential way to do that is by getting your oil changed every 5 to 6 months or every 5,000 miles. You might wonder, "Why bother, I don't drive that much?" Let's get into the reasons. 

Here are a few reasons why getting your oil changed is a must:



- Keeps Your Engine Happy: Think of your car's engine as its heart. Just like you need to keep your heart healthy, your car's engine needs clean oil to stay in tip-top shape.



- Improves Performance: Fresh oil lubricates the engine's parts, helping them move more freely. This means better performance for your car and smoother rides for you!



- Prevents Engine Wear: Over time, oil can get dirty and break down, causing friction and wear on engine parts. Regularly scheduled oil changes help prevent this, saving you money on costly repairs down the road.



- Boosts Fuel Efficiency: Clean oil reduces friction and helps your engine run more efficiently. Less friction means better gas mileage. We all want to save money at the pump!



- Protects Against Engine Damage: Dirty oil can leave deposits and sludge in your engine, leading to costly damage. Protect your engine from harm with preventative maintenance. 



- Extends Engine Life: Just like eating healthy and exercising can help you live longer, regular oil changes can help extend the life of your car's engine. It's an investment in the longevity of your vehicle!
