Oil Change And Routine Service
Do you regularly change your oil, or do you just wait for the change oil light to come on? Regular oil, lube, and filter changes are essential to keep your car well-maintained. There are many working parts in your car that require lubrication to function properly while you drive.
Warning Signs for Old Oil
When you drive, your oil gets saturated with contaminants and harmful particles. As these contaminants build up, they can cause problems for your car.
1. How Often Should You Change Your Oil?
Check your vehicle owner’s manual, but a safe rule of thumb is to change your oil between every 3,000 and 5,000 miles.
2. Does your dashboard indicate excessive heat?
As you drive, the contaminants that seep into engine oil cause your engine to work harder, potentially leading to overheating or a failure. Watch your temperature gauges. If they show a hot engine, it could be time for your next oil change.

Your engine will run smoother and stay healthier if you stay up to date with your vehicle’s oil and lubrication schedule.
