Is it Time to Change Your Oil?

We all know that oil changes are important, but not everyone knows why. As your engine runs, the moving parts produce friction and heat. If left alone, this would cause your engine parts to deteriorate and break down. Oil lubricates the engine parts, helping to reduce friction, and it carries heat away from the moving parts.

However, the oil doesn't last forever. The heat that would have broken down your engine ends up breaking down the oil instead. Over time, the oil becomes less effective at doing its job, and can even start to form a sludge, clogging parts of your engine. It is important to change your oil before it happens. It depends on how often you drive, but a general rule of thumb is to replace your oil every 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. If it is time for you to change your oil, we're here to help. Just schedule an appointment at our service center, and we'll take care of the rest.
