The freezing temperatures may seem like it’s making your car a little noisier and sluggish than usual. It may be time for an oil change. Oil plays a major role in the performance of an engine, lubricating moving parts to keep the friction and heat to a minimum. So what happens if you don’t get an oil change? You may find yourself spending a lot of time and dollars at an auto repair shop.

Have you heard of “sludge?” Using lower quality oil can contribute to the build-up of sludge, which can be a combination of dirt, soot, partially burned fuel, oxidized motor oil, leaked coolant, and condensed water vapor. You may not be able to see the impact of inferior oils and by the time you do, it may too late to bring your engine back to life. In comparison, high-quality oils keep contaminants separate and held in suspension until they are drained out during an oil change, leaving nothing behind to create sludge.

Consider these tips about oil changes:

  1. Choose the right weight – Typically, a 5W-30 performs better in colder climates, 10W-40 for warmer climates. Using the right oil will help the overall performance of your engine.
  2. Check your manufacturer's recommendations – Be sure to use oil that stays within the recommended guidelines of your vehicle's manufacturer.
  3. Consider synthetic oil – Synthetic oil is superior in providing better protection, longer oil change intervals, greater resistance to breakdown, improved cold weather starts, and improved fuel mileage. Petroleum motor oils provide adequate protection but are prone to breakdown, sludge, and more frequent oil changes.
  4. Keep your oil clean – Engines produce metal fragments that can cause harm. Routine oil changes help "flush" out any fragments along with the dirty oil.
  5. Choose a quality filter – A high-quality filter adds extra protection for the existing oil and is worth the extra cost.

Remember: Regular oil changes play a major role in how your vehicle performs. For maximum protection of your engine, a quality, warranty-backed oil change is worth the cost!
