We all know oil changes are an important part of vehicle ownership, but we also know a lot of our customers have many questions about them. Read through this handy FAQ section all about oil changes and get ready for your next appointment!
Q: How Often Should You Get Your Oil Changed?
A: Though every vehicle is different, a good rule of thumb to go by is every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. However, there are a lot of factors, like how and where you drive, what type of engine you have, and what kind of oil your vehicle uses. Refer to your owner’s manual for an exact recommendation.
Q: How Long Can You Go Between Oil Changes?
A: Though it’s not great to go longer than the recommended mileage between oil changes, your vehicle won’t die if you don’t get an oil change exactly on schedule. If you’re unsure of when your last oil change was, check your oil to see if it's healthy. If it’s dark, sludgy, or dirty, get your oil and filter changed asap.
Q: How Long Does an Oil Change Take?
A: If you plan on doing it yourself, oil changes can take a couple of hours, depending on your ability. If you want to cut that time down, visit our service department. Our professionals can change the oil in as little as 30 minutes from to start to finish!
Q: What Happens to an Engine Without Clean Oil?
A: If you choose to wait longer than recommended between oil changes, your engine (and other parts of your vehicle) are going to suffer. Motor oil cools and lubricates your engine, and without fresh oil, your engine will get hot and need to work harder to run your vehicle. This results in a poorer performance and lessened fuel economy and can also lead to your engine overheating or even full engine failure over time.
Whether you don’t know the last time your vehicle’s oil was changed or have skipped an appointment, chances are your vehicle will let you know it needs fresh oil. If you notice any of the following signs while you’re driving, make sure you schedule an oil change at our service center right away.
