What Happens If You Don’t Change Your Oil?

Porsche service technician pouring oil in vehicle

Every Matthews driver understands that their vehicle requires regular oil changes to operate at peak performance on local roads and highways, but it’s not always easy to flex your schedule to make time for this maintenance. You might be tempted to delay your next oil change until it’s more convenient, but what happens if you don’t change your oil? Well, motor oil can break down and become muddled with contaminants over time, which then causes excess wear and tear on the engine as it doesn’t have the same lubrication it once received from the clean oil. Additionally, your engine can get too hot if it doesn’t have clean oil to help regulate the temperature, potentially leading to an overheated car on the side of the road in Indian Trail. 

Essentially, you don’t want to learn from experience what happens if you don’t get your oil changed; schedule your next service visit ahead of time with Hendrick Porsche to make sure you can fit it into your busy life!

Why is Motor Oil Important? 

As we noted above, motor oil helps lubricate your engine’s moving parts. This helps prevent wear and tear on the internal components, but motor oil also has some other important roles:

  • Reduces wear and tear from friction on moving parts 
  • Some types of engine oil has protective dispersants that help clean sludge from the engine 
  • Motor oil also contains detergents that keep the engine free of varnish
  • Routinely changed motor oil helps neutralize acids that form from fuels, improves piston ring seals, and helps cool the engine

When to Schedule an Oil Change 

How often do you need to change your oil? The old adage that oil should be changed every 3,000 miles no longer holds true! These days, you can go a lot longer on Pineville roads between oil changes: 7,500–10,000 miles and sometimes more. Depending on your driving habits, you might need to get your oil changed more frequently. Also, whether you use synthetic or conventional oil can affect how long your oil lasts.
