Keeeha from St. Cloud asks: If you don’t get an oil change every 3,000 miles, can this damage your car to where it will start to leak?

Thanks for asking, Keeeha! Missing an oil change shouldn’t cause fluids to leak. Most of the time, a fluid leak is caused by a gasket that has dried out. Oil changes are important to protect the engine, so it is a good idea to change the oil based on the manufacturer’s specifications.
