Why Engine Oil is So Important

It doesn’t matter if you’re taking a quick trip into Tuscaloosa or driving for hours at a time, engine oil will be at work through every journey to keep your engine running properly.

It will:

  • Remove Contaminants: Gunk can form in your engine from things like dirt, dust, and metal particles. Engine oil helps remove it.
  • Cool Your Engine: As you can probably guess, your engine creates plenty of heat as you drive. Fresh engine oil circulates to cool the engine,and it ensures proper lubrication to avoid any overheating from unnecessary friction.
  • Prevent Metal-on-Metal Contact: Your engine contains many moving parts. If they move against each other without the lubrication provided by engine oil, major damage can occur.

Common Signs Engine Oil Needs Changing

Driving without engine oil clearly isn’t a smart move, so watch out for these common warning signs that it needs to be replaced:

  • Check Engine Light: There are several reasons your Check Engine light might come on, including driving without enough oil.
  • Knocking or Rumbling Sounds: When metal-on-metal contact occurs in the engine, you may be able to hear it from the driver’s seat.
  • Dirty or DiscoloredOil: Remove the dipstick and take a look at the oil – it should have a light cream or amber appearance. If it appears dirty or discolored, you should replace it.
  • Visible Exhaust: Modern vehicles don’t normally release visible exhaust fumes, but they may start if you need to have your oil changed.
