What Can Happen to an Engine With Dirty Oil?

Clean oil keeps your engine clean, and a clean engine is a healthy engine! Continuing to use old engine oil can be very harmful and even fatal to your engine. There are a few causes of this. First and foremost is engine sludge. This black, gelatin-like substance builds up in your engine's oil. Sludge is caused by dirty engine oil that gets water in it over long periods of time and can often be caused by low operating temperatures. Sludge can also have tiny metal shavings from the engines moving parts not getting proper lubrication. Getting regular oil changes can prevent sludge buildup, thus protecting your engine from seizing up.

Why Are Oil Changes So Important?

This is undoubtedly the most common question about oil changes. The answer is more simple than some would expect. The main job of engine oil is to lubricate the moving parts inside your engine like the pistons, crankshafts, valves, etc. These parts move up and down thousands of times per minute as the car is running and driving. As one might expect, this creates heat, a lot of heat. Engine oil lubricates these moving parts to keep them cool and prevent overheating. Old, broken down oil can cause overheating and seizing, marking the end of an engine's life. Remember, a clean engine is a healthy engine!
