Regular oil changes also help you maintain the best possible driving experience every time you get behind the wheel. Not only that but changing your oil regularly can help protect your car from potentially costly repairs and alert you of potential leaks. In addition to overheating, other side effects of skipping oil changes can include poor fuel efficiency and engine damage.
