WHAT DOES ENGINE OIL DO?
To understand why we need to change our oil, first, we to understand exactly what your engine oil does. Every engine needs oil, but not just any oil. Every vehicle has its own standards and requirements when it comes to the type of oil you should be using. To put it simply, base oils are the backbone of the lubricant that ends up in your engine. They can be conventional, synthetic, a blend or high-mileage. Over time, your engine oil begins to wear out. This causes the oil to become increasingly less effective at lubricating your engine’s parts and absorbing heat.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DONT CHANGE YOUR OIL?
If you don't change your oil your engine oil begins to break down and wear out. If your oil continues to run through your engine unchanged, you’ll begin to face a list of problems.
