It's time for an oil change when your vehicle reaches the required mileage, or if you have been driving in a lot of harsh conditions. Ask your mechanic to inspect your vehicle while completing the oil change. Your vehicle will keep running more efficiently when you are servicing it properly.
Why Is An Oil Change Important?
Oil changes are required about every 3000 miles if you are driving a standard engine, or a more-powerful engine may run about 5000 miles. If you neglect oil changes, the engine oil will be come thick, dirty, and also evaporate over time. Your mechanic will provide you with reminders for your next oil change as well as advise you as what kind of oil to use for the season and climate.
The oil you choose for your vehicle must mesh with the engine parts. The manufacturer gives you the type to use in your owner's manual. Auto repair technicians also can advise as to the right type of oil to use for your vehicle.
A driver who loves their car will come in for oil changes on a regular basis to protect their engine and keep their car running as long as possible.
