How Important Is An Oil Change?

Changing the engine oil is one of the most important things you should do for your car or truck. As a matter of fact, nothing will destroy your engine faster than the oil running too low or not being changed. Semi-synthetic oil should be changed every 3,000 miles; if you use full synthetic oil, it should be changed every 5,000 miles. This is also a great time to get your tires rotated!

How Does An Oil Change Help My Vehicle?

Oil changes are crucial to the overall functionality of your vehicle. Oil circulates throughout your engine, acting as a lubricant. It protects the moving parts of an engine so you don’t have hot metal parts grinding against each other. Over time, heat breaks down the oil and reduces its lubricating properties. Changing the oil regularly will help protect your engine by preventing wear, rust, and corrosion in all climates.

Regular oil changes can also help improve gas mileage.  As fresh oil circulates throughout the engine, the lubrication of the metal parts increases your engine’s performance and helps it run more efficiently so it doesn’t use as much gas. Routine oil changes, lubricated fittings, and new oil filters are essential to keeping your vehicle running smoothly.

How Often Should I Have My Oil Changed?

Checking your vehicle’s owner’s manual for your specific vehicle’s recommended schedule is always a great place to start. However, most vehicles require you to change your oil every three months or 3,000 mi./4,800 km.

Typically an oil change takes approximately 30-45 minutes. However, that depends on whether the auto repair shop you choose provides additional complimentary services with which may increase the time slightly. 

Over the years, engine technology has significantly improved. As a result, cars can typically travel up to 5,000 to 6,000 miles before requiring an oil change. However, it is still recommended that you check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s suggested time between oil changes.

Selecting the correct motor oil for your vehicle is crucial to guarantee adequate engine protection and fulfill any conditions necessary to uphold your car’s warranty. Motor oils vary significantly and are designed to meet specific performance specifications and SAE viscosity grade prerequisites.

Fully synthetic oil is the optimal choice for car engines due to its superior lubrication, temperature protection, and eco-friendliness. 

Full-synthetic oil is typically more expensive, however, it is stronger and provides better performance. It also lasts significantly longer, so you are not required to change your oil as often. Synthetic blend oil is more affordable but does not provide the same great performance that comes along with full synthetic.

Manufacturers recommend using semi-synthetic high-mileage oil in vehicles with over 75,000 miles for the best results in density balance and overall quality. One of our ASE-certified technicians can help you determine the best oil type for your particular vehicle.

Opting for full synthetic oil comes at a higher cost of around 50% compared to using a synthetic blend. Conventional oils, on the other hand, require oil changes every 3,000 miles. Full synthetic oil has an average of 5,000 to 6,000 miles between changes.
