How Often Do You Really Need to Get an Oil Change?

Most car owners know that they need an oil change eventually, but how often? Each vehicle is different, making it important to learn about your specific car. South Bend Toyota owners can check their owner's manual for more information on routine maintenance. As a good rule of thumb, most cars last beyond 3,000 miles.

What is Done During an Oil Change?

Would you like to learn more about Toyota oil change procedures? Changing your oil is as simple as it sounds. Technicians will extract old engine oil and replace it with new engine oil. They will also replace the filter. A clean filter and clean engine oil will help your car run smoothly. An oil change will include the following:

  1. Identify oil quality. There is an engine wick that you can use to inspect the oil quality. Old engine oil will look blacker and have more grime, whereas new engine oil is an amber color without dirt and debris.

  2. Changing oil.

    1. Conventional oil

    2. Synthetic oil

    3. Full-Synthetic oil

    4. High Mileage oil

  3. Replace filter. Older filters are caked with grime and dirty oil. Replacing the filter will help your engine stay in good condition longer.

Will My Car Run Better After an Oil Change?

Yes! An oil change will make your car run more efficiently. Imagine the engine becoming dirtier and more covered in grime. This happens when car owners neglect an oil change. Not only can you expect more fuel efficiency, but you can also expect better quality. Newer engine oil will keep your car on the road longer and away from pit stops!

What Happens if You Don't Change Your Oil?

Excess grime and dirt will make your engine hotter and less efficient. Newer engine oil will act as a heat absorbent and lubricant. The lubrication will prevent your engine from damaging itself, while the heat absorbent properties will make the engine more efficient. The older engine oil will retain more heat and be less lubricative. Don't allow this to happen to your car. Heart City Toyota will help you schedule frequent routine maintenance appointments so that you can keep your vehicle on the road.
