Getting your oil changed helps to reduce harmful emissions to the environment. Fresh oil is much less likely to burn and cause noxious fumes to be emitted into the air. If you own an older vehicle, getting the oil changed before visiting the emissions and registration office can be important in order to successfully pass the test.
Most common causes of engine breakdown and failure revolve around the improper lubrication of internal parts. By obtaining frequent oil changes you can significantly extend the life of your engine. Most mechanics will tell you that your oil needs to be changed every 3000 miles, however with today's more advanced technology getting a change every 5000 miles in most cases will suffice.
