It’s important to note that you should ALWAYS follow the service recommendations laid out in your car, truck or SUV’s owner’s manual. But have you ever wondered, ‘What happens if you skip an oil change?’ Take it from us, the longer you put it off, the worse the damage will be. Take a look at these videos for an even better look.
