Know When to Change Your Oil
By paying attention to your car’s warning lights, you will know when it is time to properly service your vehicle. Consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual in order to evaluate the best time and process for checking vehicle oil levels. Typically, your vehicle needs an oil change at least once a year, and our technicians will change the oil, filter, and reset your warning light. Our technicians will also assess your vehicle’s tire wear, fluid levels, and other essential vehicle functions.
Benefits of an Oil Change
By staying up to date on oil changes and routine maintenance, you can have the peace of mind that your vehicle will run smoothly during its lifespan. Though every vehicle is different, the typical oil span guideline is between 7,500 to 10,000 miles. If you typically drive under harsh conditions or frequently off-road, we recommend visiting earlier. The main benefits of staying up to date with oil changes include:
- Engine parts staying lubricated
- The engine is running at maximum power
- The engine is free of pollutants
- The engine will not overheat
It is never a good idea to extend your oil change intervals. Engine oil wears out over time, leaving your engine with insufficient lubrication and protection. Trust that our certified technicians will care for your vehicle and perform the best service possible!
