What Happens If Your Car Runs Out of Oil?

Possible Causes of a Sudden Loss of Engine Oil | Breast Cancer Car Donations

Avoid Time-Intensive and Costly Car Repairs!

If your car runs out of oil, don’t be surprised if your engine malfunctions. That’s why if you don’t want to risk serious engine damage, you have to make sure that you always have the right amount of oil in your engine and quickly replenish the oil if its level goes down.

Thanks to the oil change light on your dashboard, you’ll know if your car is running low on oil. Keep in mind that the longer it takes for you to replenish your car’s oil, the sooner your engine will fail. Worst, you might find yourself investing in time-intensive and costly repairs.

If you’ve been checking and changing your oil regularly, it’s unlikely that you’ll run out of oil while driving.

 

The Possible Causes of a Sudden Loss of Engine Oil

Some instances might lead to a sudden loss of engine oil, which is why you need to be prepared in case such eventualities happen. One example is when your car hits an object that punctures your oil pan. This will cause oil to drain from your crankcase, which can quickly deplete your oil supply.

Another instance is when the technician who changed your oil inadvertently failed to tighten the drain plug in the oil pan, resulting in a leak.

 

A Closer Look at What Can Happen If Your Car Runs Out of Oil

Breast Cancer Car Donations details two potential scenarios when your car’s oil supply gets depleted:

1. Your car will malfunction.

A vehicle’s engine is a collection of hundreds of fast-moving parts that work together to make the car move. This involves a lot of friction. Without lubrication, the bearings, rods, valves, and other parts will wear out.

It is the oil that lets these engine components slide against each other smoothly, thus reducing friction. Too much friction will result in a heat buildup, which will trigger an engine failure.

The parts grinding against each other because of the lack of lubrication will also make loud knocking sounds. The car will then slow down until it can’t take the friction and heat anymore, resulting in severe damage to the engine.

2. Your engine will become vulnerable to damage.

Since oil plays a vital role in the functioning of your car, its level should be regularly monitored. Once you notice signs that your vehicle is running low on oil, you need to promptly replace the lost oil.

If you delay or fail to do so, you will expose your engine to the risk of failure. The longer you run your car with an insufficient amount of oil, the greater the damage it will do to your engine.

After about 15 minutes of driving your car despite being low on oil, you may see smoke coming out of your overheated engine. This may indicate complete engine failure, which would cost you a fortune to repair. If you don’t want this thing to happen, better replenish your oil as soon as possible once you see the warning sign of being low on oil.
