When is it time to change the oil in your car?
The components in your engine need oil to run smoothly, without causing friction between elements. The engine oil ensures these components are well-lubricated to prevent wear. Over time, oil loses the ability to protect your engine's components which is why you need to perform an oil change.Check your car's owner manual for when you should change your oil. Generally, auto manufacturers recommend replacing it every 10,000km.
