Your engine needs oil to run smoothly and avoid developing complicated (and expensive) issues down the road.
There are three primary reasons your engine needs motor oil, and fresh motor oil on a regular basis too.
- First, oil lubricates all the moving pieces in your engine to keep everything running smoothly.
- Second, it helps stop your car from overheating (and smoking up the highway!) by reducing friction, transferring the heat, and absorbing by-products from combustion.
- Third, a correct oil level keeps everything flowing properly so the engine system doesn’t starve.
Follow the specifications set by your vehicle manufacturer, as different engines have different needs. When you get an oil change, you’ll get a handy little sticker to remind you when to get your oil changed next, based on time or mileage. Traditional wisdom says you should get an oil change every 3 months or 3000 miles. (And, as always, bring your car in to get it checked out if you notice performance issues or oil spotting before that point.)
Is it time to get your oil changed?
During an oil change, we do more than pour new oil in your engine. We’ll remove your old, gunky oil and replace it with a full synthetic oil, synthetic blend, conventional, or high mileage oil depending on your vehicle’s needs. We’ll also replace and recycle your oil filter and perform a courtesy inspection which includes fluid, light, and battery checks to make sure you drive away confident in your vehicle’s safety.
When you add new motor oil to bring your oil levels back up to normal, the old, sludgy, dirty oil doesn’t disappear—it’s just mixed with the new, fresh, clean oil. This puts more stress on the new oil and keeps it from working as well as it could. By all means, top off your oil if you’re in an emergency low-oil situation, but make sure to follow up with a full oil change!
As long as the motor oil meets the viscosity grade and engine oil specification listed in your owner’s manual, switching motor oil will not be a problem. In fact, we recommend chatting with your technician to see if we have a motor oil that offers better performance than what you’re currently using! And yes, you can easily switch back-and-forth between synthetic and conventional motor oils!
Trick question: it’s important to change your oil year round. However if it is cold outside, you may want to run your engine for 5 minutes before the oil change so that the oil flows out of the drain plug easily when changing the oil.
Always follow the vehicle owner’s manual to determine the proper oil drain interval. Oil drain intervals are NOT dependent on outside temperatures!
