In order for your engine to perform effortlessly, it needs to be lubricated. You should change your oil ever so often. If you haven't been keeping track of your oil changes, here's how your car may be telling you it's about time to change it. Oil change intervals are suggested in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. You usually need to change your oil every 3,000 miles or every three months, whichever comes first. If you use synthetic oil, the oil change intervals become greater, still, you need to keep track of them. If for some reason you forgot when the last time you got a synthetic oil change was, how will you be able to tell your car is in need of fresh oil? Well, your car will give your various signs. Huff Oil Group invites you to listen to your vehicle, it might already be telling you it’s thirsty for synthetic oil. Here are a few of the signs that your car will give you when it’s in dire need of lubrication in Fayetteville, NC.

Your Current Oil Will Look Dark and Dirty

When the oil is new it has a light brown or amber color. As it gets older and engine particles start polluting it, the oil changes into a darker color. Oil doesn't immediately lose its lubricating properties as soon as it turns dark though, you need to check its texture too. Pop the hood and check the oil dipstick, if you can still see the stick through the oil then you're good, if not, better get that oil changed. When you check your oil, touch it to feel the texture. If it feels thick, grainy, and gritty,  you need to get it changed.

Your Fuel Consumption Will Rise

If you notice your visits the gas station have grown more frequent even though you haven’t been using your car any differently, a low oil level might be the one to blame. A poorly lubricated engine uses more energy to function, meaning it burns off more fuel. It’s time to get fresh oil so your engine can return to working smoothly and effortlessly. If you’re looking to save money on fuel, a synthetic oil change might just be the solution you seek. Start with AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil which you can get at their online store. To get even more mileage out of your fuel you can purchase their P.i. Performance Improver Gasoline Additive too. Not into online shopping? You can always call Huff Oil Group at (910) 988-9328 to get your oil and receive some product suggestions.

Your Engine Will Start Making Loud Noises

Has your engine been making strange noises lately? Engines are supposed to be quiet, not entirely silent, but not too noisy either. Engines are made up from tons of metal pieces constantly rubbing together to keep it going. As you know metal on metal creates friction, and oil is necessary to keep friction low and prevent your engine from overheating. If you hear strange or loud noises coming out of your engine, it’s probably because those metal parts are now grinding together without lubrication to stop them. Don’t ignore those sounds, they will only get worse. Soon they will turn into knocking, rumbling, and roaring, and eventually, it will affect your engine.

You May See Smoke Coming Out of the Tailpipe

Smoke coming out of your tailpipe is not healthy. If what you see is a transparent vapor when the weather is cold, that’s fine. If what comes out the exhaust is a thick smoke, it means your oil is way past its useful days or you might be dealing with an engine leak. Even worse, if you catch a smell of burning oil, there might be some oil burning the exhaust area and soon your engine might overheat. Get that synthetic oil change pronto.

You Forgot When Your Last Oil Change Was

This is more of a “you” sign. If you can’t remember when was the last time you gave your car a synthetic oil change, it’s probably time to do so now. Get an AMSOIL Synthetic Oil change and restart your oil change intervals. Just be sure to keep close track of them this time and write the dates down somewhere you won’t forget.
