The Easiest Way To Keep Your Car, Truck or SUV Running Smoothly Is With Regular Oil Changes

From time to time your car, truck or SUV will need service to ensure safe and reliable performance. One very simple service that goes a long way to keeping your vehicle on the road for many miles to come is having your oil changed. So how often should you have your oil changed?

There are a number of reasons to have your oil changed regularly. The most important reason being clean engine oil keeps your engine healthy. Engine oil keeps the moving pieces of your vehicle's engine from generating heat when running. If the moving parts of your engine heat up they could warp and possible cause your engine to seize. When your engine seizes it will no longer run and will be a very costly repair. Another benefit of regularly changing your oil is that it will keep your engine clean or road debris and junk. Dirt partials can also be deadly to your engine and over time can decrease the life of the engine. Clean oil prevents dirt from building up in your engine. Having your oil changed regularly also improves your fuel economy! When all the pieces of your engine are operating at their best they don't require as much energy, resulting in improved fuel economy.

So how often do you need to have your oil changed? This will vary from driver to driver and depend on what type of car, truck or SUV you drive.
