It's no secret that the best way to keep your vehicle running like it did on Day 1 is to keep it regularly maintained. So, what's the most important maintenance item? If you said, "regular oil changes," give yourself a pat on the back, because that's exactly right. Your vehicle's engine has many parts that move unfathomably fast, rubbing against each other thousands of times per minute. That rubbing, naturally, creates extreme levels of friction. Friction not only causes heat buildup, it creates tiny metal shavings that can damage the internal components. Oil serves to lubricate these moving parts, absorb heat, and keep the metal shaving to a minimum.

Unfortunately, engine oil has a finite lifespan and loses lubricity for a couple of reasons. One job of engine oil is to carry contaminants to the filter, and while the filter removes most of the contaminants, it's impossible to remove all. Metal, dirt, soot, and other particles all accumulate in the oil over time, which is why it's important to change the filter at the same time as the oil. The other main reason is heat, which breaks down the oil over time.

Why are oil changes so important?

Modern engines are much cleaner than in the past. The rule of thumb used to be you should change your oil every 3,000 miles, but that interval has since become obsolete. Many vehicles can go 5,000 to 7,000 miles before needing an oil change, and even longer with synthetic oil. That said, it's important to check the level and condition of your vehicle's oil on a regular basis. It's easy to do, so once you hit 4,500 miles, it doesn't hurt to check every other time you fill the gas tank.

How do I know my oil needs changing?

Engine oil should be checked while it is still warm, and the car is parked on a level surface. When you shut the engine off, wait a couple minutes for the exterior to cool a bit, then:

  • Locate the dipstick. It will be labeled "oil" or have an image of an oil can.
  • Remove the dipstick and wipe it off with a rag.
  • Reinsert the dipstick all the way, pause, then take it out again.
  • At the end of the dipstick there are MIN and MAX lines. If the oil is below MIN, it is necessary to add more.
  • Note the condition of the oil. Darker oil doesn't necessarily mean bad oil. However, jet-black oil can be a sign a change is necessary. You can also rub a tiny amount between your fingers, and if leaves a mark, it's probably time for a change.
  • Reinsert the dipstick and you're done.
