Oil Change

Oil Service

Oil Change? We suggest changing motor oil every 3,000-5,000 miles- 3,000 for synthetic-blend oils, 5,000 for synthetic or every 6 months. There is the great debate when you should get this service done, but we believe 5,000 miles is ideal for several reasons.

The first is your vehicle needs to have inspections done every so often. You do not need to find out about costly surprise major repairs on the side on instate 5 do you? The oil change gives the mechanic a chance to go over everything and make sure we can save a huge headache and tow back to us. Picture you oil change like a doctor's check up.

The second reason to get a oil change is to remove sludge, metal and carbon that brakes apart inside your engine. If the auto technician find metal shavings while draining your vehicle, you may have some serious issues to deal with. They also may find any oil leaks or red flags while removing the oil fluid.

Some vehicles have advanced computers that can help determine oil quality so check the manufacturer’s manual for further information. If you’re unsure, it’s typically safe to change oil at the same 3-5000 mile interval for almost all consumer vehicles (unless otherwise noted by manufacturer). You can be sure it’s time to change oil if it’s become dirty sludgy oil thick with debris, which can happen quickly under harsh conditions like off-roading or mud bogging.

What does engine wear actually mean and how does oil help? As the engine parts move and grind against each other, the physical contact wears away microscopic particles of metal, which mix with external dirt and grime. All these “particulates” are absorbed into fluid oil to reduce friction and wear. The oil filter extracts those particulates so they don’t ruin the oil. If the filter gets clogged, it can’t do it’s job either and this reduces oil viscosity (lubrication), increasing friction and harming the engine.

Another important concept that explains the different grades of oil is “Reserve Alkalinity”. Reserve Alkalinity refers to oil’s ability to resist the formation of acids, which corrode the engine. Better oils retain “reserve alkalinity” better and longer, thus they do their job better and longer. Bad oils quickly become thick, sticky, and sludgy. When reserve alkalinity is depleted, your engine wears down much faster. Quality engine oil means you can drive farther without worrying about oil changes as often.
