Why Change The Engine Oil In Your Vehicle?

It's necessary to replace your engine's oil if you'd like to keep your engine performing at its best. Fresh oil will protect your vehicle's engine from everyday wear and tear while keeping your parts lubricated.

When Should You Replace Your Engine Oil?

We recommend that you replace the motor oil in your vehicle every 3k to 5,000 miles to keep your engine performing like it's designed to. Your driving style and weather conditions you're driving in should also be considered when deciding how often you need to replace your motor oil.

For example, during winter or off-road driving, you may have to service your engine oil more frequently - although, you still should not go past 5,000 miles since your last oil change.

Finding engine oil puddles below your vehicle can be tricky, especially in the summer time. If you have the AC running, water will leak from the AC. This water can sometimes be mistaken for an oil spill under your vehicle. The spots that would leak oil is the Valve Cover Gasket(s), Oil Pan Gasket, or even the Oil Plug. If this engine oil leak is ignored, a leak could become a large problem and damage the engine due to low motor oil pressure. If you have reason to believe that your vehicle is leaking oil, make sure to bring your vehicle in as soon as possible to be looked at.
