It is very important to do your regular oil change every 3000-5000 miles. Engine oil has detergents in it that clean your engine from inside. After time or high milage, detergents will stop working causing the oil to become gooey.
Blocking your engine oil passages and not lubricating your engine’s internal parts will cause premature engine wear. For example, when you hear knocking or ticking noises in your engine then your engine may be already damaged.
Some synthetic oils have additives that last up to 10,000 miles, so if you do not want to do oil changes that often, opt for a synthetic oil when requesting an oil change. At Powerhouse German Automotive we use Mobil 1 0w-40 synthetic oil for oil changes.
Change your oil regularly to lengthen the life of the vehicle. Again, oil changes are cheaper than replacing the engine of your Porsche, BMW or Mercedes!
