One of the simplest, most powerful, and cost-effective ways to protect your engine: changing your oil and filter regularly.

Why Oil Changes Are Necessary

Oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It reduces friction, lessens wear, lubricates metal engine parts, forms a seal between the pistons, rings and cylinder walls while helping to cool engine parts. Without the cleaning action of fresh oil, carbon and varnish buildup would be toxic to the engine. Want to help your engine run efficiently, maximize fuel economy, minimize emissions, and prolong the life of your car? Change your oil at the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended intervals.

Signs Your Car Needs An Oil Change

It’s best to follow your regular maintenance schedule. But here are some ways your car might tell you it’s ready for an oil and filter change:

  • Your dashboard oil reminder: In newer vehicles, this light or text message takes your actual driving conditions into account.
  • Dark oil on your dipstick: Fresh engine oil is transparent and light brown or amber. Dirty oil is dark brown or black — and too opaque to see through.
  • Overheating: Poor lubrication also makes your engine work harder, which can generate excess heat.
  • Grinding or tapping noises — these may be the dreaded “metal on metal” sounds, warning you that your oil level is too low to protect your engine.

Oil Change FAQs

Synthetic engine oils are produced throught a synthethis process that takes a very small molecules and assembles them into a larger designer molecules with premium lubricating properties. 

Oil Change is necessary on all automobiles with an engine. Conservative estimates for oil-change intervals are usually 3,000 mils but modern lubricants in new cars recommend oil change intervals from 5,000-,7,000 miles. If you car’s engine requires full-synthetic motor oil, it can go as far as 15,000 miles between an oil change service. It’s not recommended to judge the engine oil condition by color, so it’s always recommended to follow your vehicles maintenance schedule for oil changes, or you can stop by our shop and receive a free consultation!
