All drivers know that cars need motor oil, but do you know why? Engine lubricant serves three extremely important functions. First, it lubricates the engine’s moving parts, preventing the damage caused by metal rubbing against metal. Also, it removes some of the heat generated by the friction of the moving parts. Finally, oil suspends dirt and debris particles, keeping them away from the metal surfaces where they cause corrosion.
While some engine oil is certainly better than none, quality, not just quantity, matters. As oil ages, it loses some of its essential properties and begins to break down. As this happens, the lubricant is less able to cling to and coat the moving parts. It also has reduced capability to remove heat from the engine. In addition, it ceases to be able to suspend the dirt. Corrosion sets in, adding even morae debris to the mix as tiny metal particles flake off. The aged oil and the dirt and debris form sludge, the dark, gooey substance that builds up in your engine and can sometimes be seen collecting on the outside of the engine. Sludge decreases vehicle performance and causes damage that can drastically shorten the life of your car. Changing your auto’s oil and filter on a regular basis prevents the formation and build-up of nasty sludge.
