An oil change is one of the easiest and most affordable types of vehicle maintenance, and yet so many leave it until the last minute, or forego it for extended periods of time. Your vehicle is made up of hundreds of working parts, most of which are metal. These parts require lubrication to operate smoothly, otherwise, they will rust and fuse together. The oil in your car does a lot of different things to keep it running smoothly, and when oil levels become low or contaminated, it can be detrimental to the health of your vehicle.
To give you an idea of the cost of changing your oil vs. not changing your oil, consider the average cost of an oil change vs. the overall price you will pay to completely repair an engine. You’re talking somewhere in the low $100 price range vs. a cost of around $4500. When you think about it this way, the proactive solution seems much cheaper.
