Oil & Filter Change

An oil change is a routine maintenance task that involves draining the old engine oil, replacing the oil filter, and refilling with fresh oil. It's important to follow the manufacturer's recommended oil change intervals, which are typically every 5,000 to 10,000 miles (8,000 to 16,000 kilometers) or every 6 months to 1 year, depending on your driving habits and the type of oil used. Regular oil changes help lubricate the engine, remove contaminants, and extend the life of your engine.

When to Get an Oil Change:
  1. Consider more frequent oil changes if you frequently drive in stop-and-go traffic, extreme temperatures, or dusty conditions

  2. If your vehicle's oil change indicator light comes on

  3. If you notice a decrease in fuel efficiency or engine performance

The Basics of Oil Changes


Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for oil change intervals. Typically, it's around every 3,000 to 7,500 miles, but modern vehicles may have longer intervals.

Engine Protection

Regular oil changes help to maintain proper lubrication, reducing friction between moving parts and preventing premature engine wear.

Oil Filter Replacement

Along with changing the oil, the oil filter should be replaced to ensure effective filtration of contaminants and debris.

Improved Fuel Efficiency

Fresh, clean oil contributes to improved fuel efficiency, allowing the engine to operate more smoothly.

Cooling Effect

Oil helps dissipate heat generated during engine operation. Regular changes ensure the oil's cooling properties remain effective.

Prevention of Sludge Buildup

Over time, oil can break down and form sludge. Regular changes prevent the accumulation of sludge, which can impede engine performance.

Extended Engine Life

Consistent oil changes contribute to the longevity of the engine, reducing the risk of costly repairs and enhancing overall vehicle reliability.

Environmental Impact

Properly disposing of used oil is essential to minimize environmental impact. Many auto service centers recycle used oil to ensure eco-friendly disposal.
