Regular oil changes are a great way to have professional eyes check in on your vehicle from time to time (think of it as a trip to the doctor for your car). The thing is, if you're getting your oil changed at a conventional lube joint, they may not look for -- or have any reason to look for -- issues under the hood unrelated to the vehicle's lubrication.

Oil in your vehicle helps keep operations smooth, but over time it becomes like sludge and can cause an engine to overheat. This can blow the head gasket; and unless you've got exceptional sentimental attachment to your vehicle, at that point it's kaput. The cost of fixing a gasket usually makes buying a new engine a cheaper option, and a new engine is not cheap!
