Why is Regular Maintenance Important?

Your oil is what keeps the engine running. Without your oil, your engine won’t start, and even if it does, it will damage the vehicle without the proper amount of oil. This is why it’s important to have your oil changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. When you take care of your car’s oil, your vehicle can run smoothly. You can also learn how often you should get your vehicle’s oil changed in your owner’s manual. If you don’t take care of your vehicle, this can result in major repairs down the road, so you’ll want to schedule a service appointment with your mechanic as soon as possible.

How Do I Know if My Oil Needs Changing?

One obvious sign that you need an oil change is if your oil change light comes on. If your oil change light comes on, you’ll want to get your vehicle inspected right away. If you notice any engine noises or knocking or your oil is dark or dirty, then you’ll want to get it replaced. One way to check to make sure that your oil needs to be changed is by checking the dipstick underneath the hood. If the oil doesn’t meet a certain line, then you’ll know it’s time to change your oil. You can always change your oil yourself, but our technicians are more than happy to help you with this task.
