Has your car’s air conditioner been warmer than usual? Is your car making odd noises or rattling in idle? Has it been more than a year since you last checked your oil? Then it’s probably time for an oil change.
The general rule for changing oil suggests not driving more than 3,000 miles without a change. However, this can vary depending on the type of oil used, driving habits, and more. As a result, drivers can usually tell it’s time for new oil when their vehicle begins sending signals, usually a change oil or check engine light on the dashboard.
Besides this, there are other signs that drivers can look out for to ensure their car is running on clean oil.
When drivers aren’t sure if their vehicle is “good to drive”, it’s always best to speak to a professional. The experts at your local Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center are professionally certified, factory-trained, and ready to provide quality service for routine maintenance on a schedule that works for you.
Signs Your Car Needs an Oil Change
Strange Sounds – If your car suddenly starts knocking, grinding, or otherwise making a racket seemingly out of nowhere, this could be the result of insufficient oil. A lack of oil renders your vehicle incapable of lubricating the engine, causing components to knock together and become damaged.
Strange Smells – Engine oil performs 2 essential functions: lubricating the internal components of your engine and regulating its temperature. If you notice a new burning smell, it could be the oil burning up on the extremely internal engine components. This is generally the result of 2 issues, which easily become severe over time. One possible cause of the smell is an oil leak, which could occur in many areas of the engine. The second most probable cause is the oil being burned up completely before circulating, generally as the result of damaged piston rings or valves.
Strange Color – The oil in your pan should be amber in color and slightly translucent. While the main purpose of the oil is lubrication and cooling, it is also responsible for some engine cleaning, picking up small contaminants found within the engine system. As a result, the oil eventually turns to a sludge-like consistency and color. Don’t worry though, dirty oil means it’s doing its job! However, be sure to change dirty oil quickly to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape.
Strange Sights – It’s normal for your vehicle to have some steam coming from the exhaust, especially when just starting. However, if the consistency is more opaque, smokey, and slow-moving (versus translucent and short-lived), you should check the engine’s oil as soon as possible.
Strange Levels – Drivers should routinely check their engine’s oil levels to prevent damage to the engine. Over-heating is one of the main causes of engine degradation.
Drivers should have oil changes done at least once a year. If you’re not quite sure if your car should have its oil changed, it’s better to do it anyway.
What Happens When I Don’t Get an Oil Change?
Simply put, you might lose your car.
As mentioned earlier, most engine damage is related to over-heating. Without regular oil changes, your engine can get extremely hot. Consequently, components may crack or warp, seals can get broken, and whatever oil is left gets burnt up that much faster.
If allowed to continue, drivers could experience a blown head gasket (usually while driving). If suddenly being stuck on the side of the road wasn’t enough, the costs associated with repairing a blown head gasket can often outweigh the value of the vehicle itself!
Lastly, engines with little to no oil may experience an engine seizure (otherwise known as a “locked engine”). While seized engines can be fixed or repair on rare occasions, the reality is that once a car’s engine locks up, it usually never drives again.
Drivers shouldn’t needlessly stress about oil changes, but it’s good to know just how important they are. Now you know, and you’re searching for the best Erwin TN oil change specials near you.
