Why It's Important to Change Your Oil on Time

Many of us have looked up at the sticker on our windshield to discover we are past due for an oil change. You can go outside of the guidelines by a few miles - even 100 miles isn't unheard of - but we recommend against it for a few key reasons:

1. Waiting too long can cause your engine unnecessary stress.

Oil lubricates engines, and depriving engines of oil will make them function poorly - or result in a breakdown.

2. You will get worse gas mileage.

Proper oil levels help your vehicle maintain better fuel efficiency rates, plain and simple. Why spend more on fuel when you don't have to?

3. Sludge build up only gets worse over time.

The longer you wait, the more sludge, muck, and particle buildup you will have. If not handled properly and quickly, you could find yourself with countless engine or maintenance problems.

So don't push the limits of your engine in the greater Topeka, KS area when you don't have to. Our team at Sharp Honda is located at 1818 SW Topeka Blvd for an easy visit to have your oil changed in no time at all!
