How Important Are Oil Changes?

In a word: very. Motor oil serves three important functions for your engine:

  1. It lubricates moving parts, helping prevent excess friction.
  2. It cools engine components, helping prevent overheating.
  3. It picks up dirt from your engine, helping keep your engine components clear of potentially damaging debris.

As you drive, your engine oil works hard, but it gets less effective over time, degrading in the heat and getting clogged with dirt. Make sure you have fresh oil to keep your car running in good order.


How Do I Know if I Need an Oil Change?

There are a few factors that affect how often your vehicle needs an oil change, but a general rule of thumb is to get it done about twice a year.

Here are some signals that your vehicle may need an oil change soon:

  • Lower fuel efficiency
  • Burning smell
  • Dark exhaust fumes

How Do I Check My Oil?

Luckily, checking your engine's oil is easy to do yourself.

Park and turn off your car, then pop the hood. Pull out the oil dipstick and wipe it clean with a rag or paper towels, and pop the dipstick back in. Pull it out again, and inspect the oil.

If the oil is below the fill line marker on the dipstick, you need to add new oil. In addition, if the oil is dark and sludgy, it's old and needs to be replaced. On the other hand, if your car's oil is smooth and amber colored and reaches the fill line on the dipstick, it's still healthy and does not need to be replaced yet.

When it's time for an oil change, come to our service center! We make it easy to schedule service online.
