And all of these parts rely on engine oil to provide the lubrication necessary for them to work properly.
When conventional motor oil starts to lose its lubricating ability, it often burns off and becomes thicker. This sludge compromises the oil’s ability to lubricate finely machined engine parts. This causes these parts to come in contact and produce engine wear through friction. Eventually, oil can stop lubricating moving parts if it isn’t changed in a timely matter. Car owners should always follow their vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations for oil change intervals. The owner’s manual, manufacturer or dealership websites can notify you of this.
