The oil is an important part of the vehicle to keep it operating efficiently. Following the oil change schedule will help you to have an efficient engine. It is designed to help keep the engine properly lubricated and always operating the best that it can. If the oil is old or full of grime and dirt, then these particles can get into the engine of the vehicle and cause damage. Parts may start to wear sooner than they otherwise should. If you are not sure how often to have the oil changed, make sure to contact us. We can advise you on when the oil should be changed. This can either be by how many miles you drive, or the length of time between the last service change.
Check the Oil Regularly
You should also remember to check the oil for your vehicle on a regular basis. By doing so, you can help determine if any that is leaking from your vehicle. If the dipstick is not showing the correct amount, then there could be a leak. If you notice there is less than there should be, make sure to add enough so that it is up to the recommended amount. At the same time, you can see what the condition that it is in. If it looks like sludge or is dirty, having it changed will be needed for the vehicle. If you are not sure how often, make sure to contact us.
It is also a good ideal to keep an extra quart in your vehicle. That way if you need it suddenly, you will be able to top off the reservoir. This is especially important if you run low on oil and are not near a store. The last thing you will want is an unexpected breakdown, or ruining the engine of your vehicle.
