Even if it seems trivial, never go long periods of time separate from increasing the oil in your car. I had an old car in university that survived for as long as it did because I kept the oil respectfully changed. I also evaluated the dipstick consistently to make sure there was always enough oil inside. My close buddy Matt was also driving an old car at the time. She went for weeks with no oil in her engine plus eventually the whole motor blew up while she was resting in the parking lot at university waiting for someone to meet him at her car. She had only just started the engine when she started to hear loud popping noises as plumes of smoke rose from the hood of her car. Her family towed it to the closest mechanic who determined that the engine was basically destroyed. Unfortunately, Matt had to get a weird car to drive, which was within her parents’ budget thankfully. It was a lesson for all of us who were around when it happened. In fact, it caused me to go plus check our oil dipstick later the same day to make sure I had enough oil. Recently almost caused a similar issue with our cooling system by going for weeks separate from increasing the filter. Some people think that your air quality is the only thing that suffers from a lack of frequent filter changes. In fact, a suffocated cooling system can break down over surprisingly short periods of time if the filter becomes so clogged that it totally deprives the method of any kind of air flow. Thankfully, I remembered while taking a shower last evening plus quickly changed the filter when I got out. Just prefer I suspected, the cooling system filter was seriously clogged.
