When Should I Get My Oil Changed?

Cars vary their timetables for oil changes, so you should check your owner’s manual or consult with our service techs about the best time to do so. Our techs work on so many different cars that they may be able to gauge the ideal time from their experience alone.

Once upon a time, it was universally suggested to get oil changes every 3,000 miles. Now 5,000 miles may be the golden interval, but it could be 7,500 miles. If your car uses synthetic oil, you may not need one until the 10,000-mile marker.

Reasons to Get an Oil Change

Let’s talk about what the oil actually does in a car. It essentially lubricates the surrounding parts and the engine, so that they move together in tandem and in a smooth fashion. All these workings under the hood make your car the marvelous performer that it is.

During this time of running errands, driving to work, and keeping up with extracurricular activities, your car starts picking up all sorts of dirt, dust, and debris. This infiltrates the oil, so that the muck starts building up and impacting the effectiveness of the oil. When it’s not pure, it does not fulfill its job and keep your car running at an optimal rate.

How Long Does a Typical Oil Change Take?

Our service techs work on a lot of cars, from our flagship brands to many others that we sell and fix. Standard routine maintenance like oil changes come and go so often that our technicians have perfected their techniques. You will not be waiting long if you bring your car by for an oil change.

What About Adding Oil?

Picture this. It’s around the time you need an oil change, but you’re backed up with life events. You check the dipstick by following your owner’s manual or watching YouTube. It looks low, so why not buy some motor oil and pour it in?

Remember that you’re pouring fresh, pure oil on top of dirty, old oil. This mixes up to create a sludge that may not produce the results you want. Leave the oil change to us, and we’ll replace the oil and the filter.
