Oil Change Service

Oil Change Service

Short drives and infrequent oil changes are two factors that lead to formation of sludge in an engine. This gelling of the oil can cause premature engine failure. Oil change intervals depend on the type of driving done.

The most widely accepted service, but also the most misunderstood service. Many people think the oil should be changed either because "it's time," "it's low," or "it's dirty."

Really there is a different criteria for knowing when to change the oil. It's determined by driving conditions, that is how the vehicle is driven. Auto manufacturers take severe driving conditions into account when planning their recommendations.

Severe driving conditions are frequent stopping and going, (as in city or urban driving,) short trips (as in running errands around town,) towing (as in pulling a trailer or loading the vehicle with heavy items,) or weather extremes (such as a hot summer or freezing winter) If you use your vehicle in any of the severe driving conditions listed above, then auto manufacturers will recommend more frequent intervals than the average 3,000 mile recommended the change oil intervals.

Don't forget to change the filter each time as well, as filters are also negatively affected with severe driving because the filter gets dirtier quicker with those conditions, along with more condensation and contaminates will be present. To stay on the safe side, changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles is usually recommended by auto manufacturers.

If most of the driving is open highway with little stop and go the interval could be 5000-7500 miles. But if the driving done is short trips and or stop and go, the oil should be changed every 3000 miles or 6 months whichever comes first. Some vehicles use a monitoring program that lets the computer say when to change the oil.

Every oil change performed at Engle Automotive includes a 12 point inspection, top up of fluids and set tire pressures.
