Signs Your Car is Overdue for an Oil Change

When it comes to caring for your ride, regular oil changes are vital to keeping your engine in tip top shape. Skipping oil changes can greatly jeopardize your engine and cause serious mechanical issues and breakdowns. With modern oil brands, it is generally recommended that you get an oil change every 3,000-5,000 miles.

However, some drivers may not realize they need an oil change until they see, hear, or smell something out of the ordinary. Here are some signs that you are overdue for an oil change:

  • Burning smells
  • Unusual knocking or grinding sounds
  • Thick and gritty oil consistency on dipstick

What Can Happen If You Don't Change Your Oil

It's easy to forget to keep up on your oil change when you only have to do it every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. You may even think to yourself you can put it off just a few thousand more, what's the harm? 

Avoiding simple, routine oil changes can lead to some complicated, prolonged problems. Here's what can happen when your vehicle goes far too long without an oil change:

  • Voided Vehicle Warranty - Failing to regularly service your car according to factory specifications could render the warranty null and void, this can include any issues stemming from failing to getting regular oil changes.

  • Complete Engine Failure - Probably the most detrimental consequence of avoiding oil changes. A failing engine can be incredibly costly to replace, if not completely render your vehicle useless.

  • Increased Fuel Consumption - You may think you're saving time and money by avoiding that next oil change, but ultimately you end up paying more at the pump. Stagnant, old oil thickens and becomes sludge, forcing your engine to unnecessarily work harder and therefore burn more fuel.
