To have an engine that functions properly, you need to change its lubricant on a regular basis, lest you want it to suffer through the consequences mentioned in this post.

What Happens When You Don't Change Your Engine Lubricant

Being diligent with your engine's oil replacements is crucial for your vehicle's proper functioning. That's why it is so important that you are aware of the different signs that let you know when the oil needs to be changed. As  Complex  states, you should do it when:
  • you've driven more than 5,000 miles with it,
  • the oil in the engine has become dirty and coarse,
  • the oil levels have dropped significantly,
  • the engine jumps or produces loud noises,
  • the "oil" light on your dashboard turns on,
  • it's been a long time since the last time you changed it.
However, if you don't know what the oil does for the engine, you may think that skipping a few replacements isn't that big of a deal. In an effort to show you just how essential these replacements are, this post will share a few of the things that can happen if you neglected them altogether.

The Additives in the Lubricant Will Fade

Your engine goes through a lot in order to move your vehicle, and it's the oil's job to help it endure those extreme conditions. However, after some time, said conditions can actually take a toll on the lubricant and its effectiveness. For example, the additives in the oil (such as the friction reducers) will begin to fade out. This means that your engine will be exposed, unprotected, and without lubrication.

The Oil Will Be Dirty and Gritty

As stated above, dirty and gritty lubricant needs to be replaced as soon as possible. This is because all of the dirt, gunk, sediments, and filth that get trapped in the oil can actually change its consistency and thickness. What's worse is that once that happens, far from protecting and lubricating the engine, the now dirty oil will damage it due to its grittiness. So, unless you want to have dirty, damaging oil in your vehicle, you need to change it regularly.

The Engine May Overheat

If you've ever had an engine overheat and shut down on you, you know that it isn't a particularly pleasant situation. An engine overheats because the temperatures inside it are too harsh for it to function correctly. Luckily, your engine works with oil to reduce the friction between its moving parts (and the heat that results from it), and coolant to regulate the extreme temperatures. Still, if the oil isn't replaced as needed, the friction will increase, as will the chances of the engine overheating.

Loud Noises Will Come Out of Your Engine

Needless to say, having a loud engine can be troubling, as it may be distracting to you and disturbing to those around you. Nonetheless, a loud engine is what you'll get if you neglect providing the lubricant replacements your vehicle requires. This is because, as the oil becomes ineffective, the metal components in the engine will begin to grind against each other and produce a not-so-charming sound.

The Engine's Components Won't Last

Can you imagine the amount of stress the engine's components go through each time you drive your vehicle? They are metal parts that are constantly rubbing against each other. If it weren't for the engine lubricant and its ability to act as a protective layer that helps avoid premature wear and tear, it would be safe to say that said components wouldn't last very long.

The Engine's Lifespan Will Lower

If you know anything about cars, you know that the engine is its most important component, which is why caring for it and providing regular lubricant replacements for it is such a big deal. If you fail to provide the upkeep it requires, its components will wear away much faster and the engine's performance will start to decline rapidly until it is rendered useless.

Your Personal Economy Will Suffer

Finally, if you don't change the oil in your engine regularly, your wallet will suffer. Fixing or replacing an engine can be an extremely expensive endeavor, and by not caring for it properly, you're pretty much ensuring that you'll have to make a big financial commitment later down the road to get your vehicle going once more.
