Oil Changes

How often should you have your oil changed? For conventional oil, we recommend having your oil changed every 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first.  For synthetic oil, we recommend having your oil changed every 5,000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first. 

We find many newer vehicles will burn oil, by some manufacturers this is by design.  The number one important aspect of your engine oil is to ensure the level is correct.  This can be done by checking your engine oil dipstick every few weeks.  You can swing by our shop any time during business hours and we can check it for you at no cost. We check the condition and level of your oil during our complimentary Digital Vehicle Inspection at every visit.

Having your oil changed routinely is important for numerous reasons:

  • Lubrication: Engine oil lubricates the moving parts of your engine, reducing friction and wear, and helping to keep your engine running smoothly.
  • Cooling: Engine oil also helps to dissipate heat away from the engine, helping to keep it cool and prevent overheating.
  • Removes Contaminants: Over time, engine oil can become contaminated with dirt, metal particles, and other contaminants, which can cause wear on engine parts and reduce engine performance. Regular oil changes help to remove these contaminants, keeping your engine clean and running smoothly.
  • Maintains Engine Performance: Regular oil changes help to maintain engine performance by keeping the oil clean and at the proper viscosity (thickness). This helps to ensure that the oil can continue to lubricate and cool the engine effectively.
  • Prolongs Engine Life: By keeping the engine clean, lubricated, and running smoothly, regular oil changes can help to prolong the life of your engine, reducing the risk of costly repairs down the road.
