Even though we had some unseasonably warm days scattered throughout the winter, we also had some brutally cold ones. Chances are during those times, when you had to leave your home, you made a point to get wherever you needed to go as quickly as possible. You also probably did not take any unnecessary trips, even if the destination was not very far. Winter is definitely the time to hunker down at home and find ways to stay warm. However, that time is rapidly coming to an end. The days are getting longer and much more comfortable, and you certainly will want to get out to take advantage of the warmer temperatures. This means that you will be spending more time outside and to get to some of your favorite spots, most likely you will have to drive. This begs the question: When was the last time you gave any thought to car maintenance, such as an oil change?
During the cold months, it can be very easy to neglect your car. Because you are doing less driving, it is not on your radar as much. As long as it starts and gets you where you need to go and back again, that is all you are concerned with. But now that you will soon be doing much more driving, the health of your car has to be a big consideration. Before you do any extended driving, you should have it looked at by the pros, or at minimum, make sure to get an oil change. Oil may be the most important fluid in your vehicle, as it keeps essential engine parts lubricated. Old oil hurts engine performance, which can ultimately be very detrimental to your car.
