Old Motor Oil Isn't a Car's Friend

Tales of drivers who never change their motor oil exist. Legends of owners who totaled their car after driving on the same engine oil for three years exist. Did you know that three-year-old oil could ruin and engine even if you don't drive the car? Engine oil breaks down over time. And the oil could create troubles long before its third anniversary arrives.

Replace engine oil once it hits about six months in age. Metals and other impurities collect in the old oil. You don't want these impurities circulating over and over again. Damage to the engine might occur.

Old oil doesn't support optimal lubrication. Poor lubrication could lead to metal-on-metal damage capable of destroying an engine. An oil change doesn't cost much money. A new engine costs thousands to replace.
