Oil Change Service

Keep Your Car Running Smoothly with Our Oil Service

Changing your oil and scheduling routine oil service for your vehicle is one of your car's most crucial services. However, knowing when to change your oil and why it is so important can be challenging. Our service center provides expert oil change services and can provide helpful information to help you take advantage of all the benefits of routine oil changes.

The Importance of Routine Oil Changes

You don't have to know about the intricacies of an internal combustion engine to imagine that it can create a lot of heat. Motor oil is one of the most important aspects of keeping your engine's heat at safe levels. Motor oil reduces friction and heat in your engine by lubricating internal components. However, your motor oil doesn't stay effective forever.

Your motor oil will become less effective through time and use. Particles and debris will eventually get past your oil filter, causing your oil to become dirty. Dirty or old oil will cause heat and friction in your engine to rise to dangerous levels over time. If you do not change your oil often, it can damage and warp your engine.

While it can be tempting to put off your oil changes, you will find that routine oil changes are less expensive and time-consuming than replacing engine components due to neglect.

Find the Right Oil-Change Interval for You

Changing your oil by how many miles or how much time since your last oil change is one of the best ways to track when it's time to change your oil. Most vehicles need an oil change every six months or between 3,000 and 5,000 miles. The best way to find your vehicle's most accurate oil-change interval is by consulting your owner's manual and working with our service specialists.

You may find in your owner's manual two types of oil change recommendations. There is one for normal driving and one for severe driving. Severe driving is driving conditions and habits that require more frequent oil changes. Severe driving may apply to your everyday driving even if you don't think your commute is out of the ordinary.

Check your owner's manual and speak with our service team to determine if your driving qualifies for severe driving. Since severe driving can be anything from traveling weather extremes to driving in stop-and-go traffic, it's worth finding out if you need to adjust your oil change intervals accordingly.

Why Change Your Oil Routinely?

Changing your oil regularly has many benefits that will help you save money and enjoy your vehicle to the fullest. Changing your oil routinely will help improve your fuel economy in the long run, avoid more expensive repairs, and receive a higher resale value with your engine staying in great condition.

How to Check if You Need an Oil Service

Even if you are tracking how long it's been since your last oil change, it can be helpful to watch for other signs that your vehicle needs oil service. Most modern vehicles have an indicator light in your dash that notifies you when the vehicle needs oil service. You can also check the quality and condition of your oil with a visual inspection of the dipstick.

Be sure to follow the instructions of your owner's manual, which usually starts with a cool engine. Remove the dipstick and have a clean, lint-free cloth prepared to help you inspect the motor oil. What you want to see is golden-brown, translucent oil. If you see globby, dark-brow, or milky oil, it's time for an oil change.
