If the oil isn’t changed, your vehicle’s engine will start to have a lot of problems.
The most common issue is that the parts in your engine will become too hot.
This can cause the engine to run less efficiently, and as time goes on, it can cause the engine components to warp and wear out.
What happens if you drive your car when it needs an oil change?
Aside from fuel the most important fluid your vehicle needs is oil. Depending on the vehicle and oil, the time between oil changes could range from 3,000 to 10,000 miles. But what happens if you decide to skip oil change? The end result is that your engine won’t last as long as it could.
Does your car run better after an oil change?
Changing your oil offers a lot of noticeable benefits, as well. Regular oil changes improve your car’s gas mileage. As the fresh oil moves through the engine, the lubrication of the metal parts increases your engine’s performance and helps it run more efficiently with less work so it doesn’t eat up as much gas.
How long can you go without changing oil in a car?
Most of the time if you are able to tolerate it, you can go about 5,000 to 6,000 miles over the recommended mileage change. In fact, depending on the age of your vehicle you could possibly go over about 7,000 to 10,000 miles. In theory, you could even run your engine without oil if you wanted to.
