Getting your vehicle’s oil changed may seem like an inconvenience if you’re tight on time or cash. But the dangers of skipping an oil change far outweigh the short-term benefits of saving a little time or a few dollars. In fact, if you wait too long, you could wind up paying even more.
Your Toyota needs fresh, clean oil for the engine to operate efficiently. Dirty oil or too little oil makes the engine’s job harder by diminishing lubrication and making it tougher to regulate temperatures.
If you go too long without an oil change, the results could be catastrophic. Possible vehicle issues caused by a lack of proper oil changes include blown head gaskets and complete failure. This will require costly repairs or a full-on replacement — which is significantly more expensive than the combined costs of regular oil changes.
On top of all this, not following the recommended oil change intervals in your owner’s manual can void your new vehicle warranty. That means you’ll be out even more money in the long run.
