5 Benefits to Routine Oil Changes

Getting regular oil changes completed is one of the most important aspects of keeping your Toyota car in top condition. You likely already know that you need to get oil changes, but do you know what the benefits of keeping up with your Toyota oil change schedule are?

Here at Keyes Toyota, our mechanics are happy to explain why exactly oil changes are so essential.

Better Gas Mileage 

With gas prices hitting record highs, drivers are trying to save at the pump whenever possible. Oil changes keep your engine clean of debris and clean, which helps them run efficiently, giving you better gas mileage and significant cost savings.  


Engine Efficiency 

Regular oil changes not only keep your engine clean, but also improve its performance. Oil carries dirt, debris, and various other particles as it flows into the engine. Over time, sludge begins to accumulate. If you fail to get your oil changed in our Toyota service center, you’ll start to notice decreased vehicle performance.  


Engine Longevity 

Oil that goes a long time without getting changed has gunk that causes increased friction and faster wear and tear. In contrast, a cleaner engine runs smoother, works more proficiently, and typically also lasts longer.  


Pass Emissions Test 

California requires regular emissions tests to ensure your car is not emitting harmful gases into the environment. Getting regular oil changes gives you a much higher probability of passing your emissions test. 


Eco-Friendly 

Over time, heat degrades engine oil and releases gases. The released gas from your car will likely include harmful hydrocarbons that are dangerous to the environment. Thus, changing your oil routinely helps protect the environment.
