When oil flows into the engine from all around, dirt and other particles will begin to accumulate within it.

What does oil actually do in my car? Inside your engine there are a many key elements which make your engine run such as the crank shaft and the connecting rods. These rods control the pistons inside of your engine’s cylinders. There is also another piece called the camshaft which assists in opening and closing the vehicle’s exhaust valves. Making sure that you have clean oil in your vehicle’s engine is crucial in keeping of of these components well moving and running properly.

Changing my oil on time and I will get better gas mileage? How does that work? Finding a vehicle that is good on gas is important to all of us. Overall miles per gallon are affected by a number of factors including environment, terrain, personal driving habits and vehicle maintenance. Without proper maintenance, all that dirt and grit we talked about earlier will build up inside your engine causing friction, and friction is no friend of your engine. Friction is the enemy of engine performance and optimum fuel economy. Making sure that your engine always has clean oil in it will help to reduce friction, allowing your engine to run more efficiently with the best possible gas mileage.

When it comes to passing an emissions test it is all about how many of these particles called hydrocarbons are being sprayed out into the atmosphere. If you fail to change your oil on a regular basis, dirty oil causes a build up of these hydrocarbons inside areas of your engine’s crank case. These then get burned up, causing more of them to be released into the air through the vehicle’s exhaust. Not only will changing your oil on time help you pass this required emissions test, you will also be polluting less.

Over time, old oil breaks down due to heat. This causes it to loses its viscosity as well as its ability to lubricate the engine cylinder walls. Essentially, the dirtier the oil is, the harder it is to go where it needs to. That sludge begins to build up in areas blocking the flow to parts which needs to be lubricated. Another function of oil is to draw heat from parts of your engine. If they are sovered with sludge, these parts stay hotter longer. Ultimately the engine will run less efficiently as its performance is robbed of both gas mileage and horsepower.
