Many Nashua drivers pride themselves on keeping their vehicles up to date on their routine maintenance schedule. But sometimes, we’ve all gone past the recommended mileage for an oil change. And if you kept delaying the inevitable, what happens if you don’t get your oil changed? Not changing your oil can have catastrophic effects to your engine. Learn more about what happened if you don’t change your oil with Porsche Stratham. Then, check out our service specials.

What Happens If You Don’t Get Your Oil Changed?

To keep your vehicle operating on Portsmouth roads, having healthy motor oil is a vital element, as it lubricates the engine’s parts while absorbing the heat and friction generated by the parts moving as you drive. Old oil, meaning dirty oil, loses its ability to pull that heat away from the engine, so when you don’t get your oil changed, your engine overheats. An overheating engine is a dangerous situation. Sticking to frequent oil changes at Porsche Stratham can eliminate that worry completely.

Oil Change Frequency

Typically, service technicians used to recommend having your oil changed every 3,000 miles. Now, with improvements in both oils and engines, vehicles can travel between 7,500 miles to 10,000 miles on trips neat Manchester before scheduling your next oil change. Also, your owner’s manual will list the exact oil change intervals for your vehicle. The only exception for more frequent oil changes is if your vehicle is used for commercial purposes. Racing, off-roading, and heavy towing will put more demand on your vehicle’s engine.
