When You Might Need an Oil Change

As engine oil starts losing viscosity due to thermal breakdown, it will begin changing in consistency and color. The change in texture and appearance demonstrates how engine oil is turning into sludge. When engine oil begins forming into a sludgy consistency, it can't lubricate the engine.

If the engine is not lubricated, it can cause secondary problems, such as engine overheating, rapid engine component wear, reduced fuel efficiency, and damages. Here are the most common symptoms related to thermal breakdown of engine oil:
