FYI - Vehicle Maintenance

 

Oil changes are the #1 way to maintain your Vehicle. When you are given the advice of 3

 

months or 3,000 miles, that is an average that helps you maintain all aspects of your vehicle.

 

It used to be normal to change the oil every 3,000 miles, but with modern lubricants, most

 

engines today have recommended oil change intervals of 5,000 to 7,500 miles. And,

 

if your car's engine requires full-synthetic motor oil, they might go as far as recommending

 

15,000 miles between services!

 

What it comes down to all depends on your driving habits. If your driving routine consists

 

mostly of trips that are 10 miles or less, you should consider changing your oil more often than

 

every 5,000-7,500 miles for two reasons:

 

1.   If you aren't making long trips at high, steady speeds (like you would on a highway) then

 

your engine isn't getting hot enough to boil off condensation that accumulates in the system.

 

That can cause oil to break down faster. Especially as a car ages, we start seeing black, burnt

 

oil after 3,000-4,000 miles.

 

2.   Most of the wear and tear on your engine occurs when you're starting your car, and if you

 

aren't driving very far, most of your driving is of the type that is very hard on your engine and

 

your battery. With all the electronics on newer cars and all the phone and/or computer

 

charging  done in your car, the shorter your battery life. More frequent oil changes or check-

 

ups can and will help minimize the damage.

 

In short, if you drive your car infrequently, as in much less than the mileage of your

 

recommended service interval, you should still change your oil at least twice a year since the

 

oil degrades over time.

 

That being said, we are not a quick-change oil shop, our oil changes can take up to 45

 

minutes, so we prefer to schedule oil changes first thing in the morning. Why do our oil

 

changes take longer? Because when we do your oil changes regularly, we monitor the battery

 

health, oil condition, anti-freeze strength, tire pressure, tire conditions, we check your wipers,

 

lights and brakes and check grease fittings during your oil change, plus we keep notes and

 

even take pictures of your vehicle so that we can monitor the progression, giving you a heads-

 

up for when you will need more service.
