Keep Your Vehicle Running Smoothly With Regular Oil Changes

Over time and mileage, the oil in your car degrades as it builds up dirt, metal filings, and other gunk that impact its ability to properly lubricate your engine and keep it cool. Remembering to schedule an oil change is an important part of maintaining your vehicle.

How often should I have my vehicle’s oil changed?

That’s a question we get asked a lot and the answer is unique to your vehicle type, driving pattern, and the season. In general, older vehicles may need their oil changed every 3000 miles or so, while newer vehicles may go as long as 5000 to 7500 miles. Always consult your owners manual for info regarding the frequency of oil changes for your vehicle or ask one of our trained mechanics for help.

If you’re like most busy people these days, regular oil changes are often something that’s easy to forget about or to put off for another time. Don’t do it. Your engine’s lubrication system is paramount to prolonging the life of your engine and ultimately saving you time and money. Engine oil is essential for keeping your engine clean, removing contaminants, and reducing friction that causes it to overheat. Having the oil in your vehicle changed regularly can also substantially lower emissions and provide better fuel economy, which is good for the environment and your pocketbook.

What type of engine oil should I use?

While it’s true that the cost of semi-synthetic or fully-synthetic oil is higher than conventional oil, they offer better protection over longer periods of time and ultimately will save you money down the road. As always, the type of oil and the frequency of oil changes is a matter particular to your vehicle and regular driving conditions. Our experts can help advise you on what is the best solution for your automobile and help you schedule oil changes on that basis.
