Oil Change FAQs

When To Change Your Oil

When you first purchase your vehicle, it’s a good idea to review the owners manual and pay special attention to the recommended maintenance schedule for your specific vehicle. If you car didn’t come with a manual, don’t fret. Almost all manufacturer post their recommended maintenance schedules online. With newer vehicles many cars, trucks and SUVs can go as long as 5,000 or 7,500 miles between oil changes. If you have an electric or bi-fuel vehicle it may even be 10,000 between service visits. With the significantly reduced frequency of oil change maintenance, it is even more important now to get your vehicle inspected at each oil change. If you have lost track of the time since your last oil change we suggest going sooner than later. Here are Five Signs You Should Change Your Oil:

  • The Oil is dark and gritty – When you check your oil level and white it on a towel; what does your oil look like?
  • Your Car is Louder than it used to be – Oil is vital to your engine running smoothly by providing the lubricant that allows the parts to glide. Without clean oil those parts scrape, grind, rub and generally cause premature wear and damage.
  • If You Can’t Remember the Last Oil Change – Even if you fuel level is good, the oil you do have may not be lubricating your engine properly. If you can’t remember the last time it was changed, it most likely needs to be changed now.
  • Your Check Engine Light is On – Many newer cars have a specific oil light that will go on but for older vehicles the engine light will come on to indicate your engine lubricant really needs attention. A first step would be to check your oil level.
  • Your Oil Level Keeps Dropping – Engines will gradually eat up engine oil but drastic or fast reductions that increase in volume over time are a sign of a larger problem. When you oil level is low remember to check color and consistency as well. You oil may need to be replaced instead of refilled.


Will an Oil Change Help My Gas Mileage?

If you can’t remember the last time you changed your oil and it appears to be clumpy and dirty, it is most definitely harming your fuel economy.   In order for your engine to work efficiently and provide the best gas mileage possible, your oil needs to be free from particulates and maintain the correct viscosity.  The cushion from the oil helps to ensure that your engine isn’t rubbing metal on metal and reducing its efficiency and the overall life of your vehicle.

What is the difference between regular oil and synthetic oil?

Both types of oil begin their lives as crude oil.  Conventional motor oil was developed to provide lubrication at high temperatures in order to protect your car and provide optimal engine performance.  Synthetic motor oil is modified and developed beyond the aspects of convention motor oil.  Many synthetic oils have been scientifically developed to maintain their viscosity longer and better than conventional oils.  One of the advantages to synthetic oil is that it doesn’t breakdown as fast as conventional oils so you can wait longer between oil changes without harming your vehicle.

Why Changing Your Oil is Important

  • Lubricates Your Engine’s Moving Parts – All the moving parts of your engine are operating at high rates of speed and the oil helps to make those movements create less wear and damage, in turn extending the life of your car.
  • Keeps It Cooler Too – Engines with low or dirty oil create lots of heat thru the friction of all those moving parts.  Even though these are tough materials, heat and friction can cause significant damage to your car over time.
  • Don’t Sludge Your Engine – Overtime the oil in your engine accumulates dirt particles and begins to break down and turn into sludge.  The sludge is not nearly as protective to the moving parts of your engine and nice fresh clean oil.
  • Get Better MPG – Even though gas prices have fallen a bit, who wouldn’t love better fuel economy in their car.  Surprise, changing your oil is a great way to help your MPG and the longevity of your car.
