  • What Engine Oil Does in Your Vehicle
  • Common Signs You Need Your Oil Changed

What Engine Oil Does in Your Vehicle

Every driver should already know that engine oil is one of a vehicle’s most important fluids, but what does it actually do? Just a few responsibilities include:

  • Providing proper lubrication to prevent metal-on-metal contact between your engine’s moving parts.
  • Circulating cool oil and preventing excessive friction to avoid overheating.
  • Circulating small amounts of detergents to keep your engine clean and prevent corrosion.
  • Preventing contaminants such as dirt, dust, and small metal particles clogging up your engine.

Unfortunately, engine oil doesn’t last forever. It breaks down and becomes too contaminated itself over time, which is why you need to watch out for signs your vehicle’s oil needs replacing.

Common Signs You Need Your Oil Changed

If you think your oil needs changing, you can always check it yourself. After leaving the engine time to cool, simply pop the hood, find the oil reservoir, and draw out the dipstick. The oil sticking to it should be clear amber. If it appears dirty or discolored, you probably need to schedule servicing before continuing across Clearwater roads.

Further warning signs include:

  • Check Engine Light Keeps Coming On
  • Visible Fumes from Your Exhaust
  • Sounds of Rumbling or Knocking from the Engine
