What Happens If You Forget To Change Your Oil?

We all know that oil changes are the utmost vital service to get for your car. They are also the most frequent procedure you need to get for your vehicle. Without fresh and clean oil, your engine parts would bump against each other and overheat quickly. Here's what will happen if you forget your oil change:

Sludge Buildup -  When your oil gets dirty and dark and runs through the engine, it will leave behind a nasty sludge buildup. Sludge is thickened gunk that can lead to the restriction of vital fluids.

Contamination - As the engine flows through your motor, it may pick up contaminants like dirt and debris. Over time, if it gets dirty enough, it can lead to engine inefficiency. It can also create other problems, like gunk blocking the pipes.

Breakdown - With old, contaminated oil, don't be surprised if you experience a breakdown. An overheating car is inevitable if the oil isn't reaching where it needs to in the system. It can cause irreversible damage that can cost thousands of dollars. If that doesn't convince you to get vehicle changes on time, we don't know what will. 


You should get an oil change every 3000 - 6000 miles; however, you can go longer in between changes if you use synthetic or synthetic blends. Feel free to refer to your owner's manual to see which type of engine oil your car prefers. The team at Desi Auto Care will be glad to change your oil to prevent sludge buildup, contamination, and breakdowns. We want your motor to run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
