Why change oil?
As your engine runs, it uses the oil to lubricate its moving parts and remove
excess heat from the engine block. Oil is subject to extreme high temperatures,
splashing, turbulence, and thermal shocks (oil goes from high operating
temperatures while engine is running, to cooling down when engine is shut off).
Another consideration is that most times we do not let the cold engine warm up
before we take off.

Due to the above conditions and cycles, certain chemical changes take place and
the oil begins to break down and even turn acidic. It also loses its viscosity which
is very important for a good lubrication between the engines moving parts. Lower
viscosity means higher wear on the engines moving parts. Changing the oil brings
back the proper viscosity recommended for your engine and the climate it will be
operating in. For example: 5W30, 10W30, 20W40 and so on. An oil recommended
for cold climate could seize the engine if used by a vehicle owners in
a warm climate.

The oil also removes particular matter from the engine. If left in the engine too long it will eventually become thick with grime and burnt particles called sludge.

Oil change intervals are set so that you replace the oil when it is beginning to fail, not after it has failed.
