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 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 3,000 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.

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. More frequent oil changes 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 twice a year since the oil degrades over time.

That being said, we are not a quick-change oil shop, our oil changes take about 45 minutes, so we prefer to schedule oil changes first thing in the morning. Why? 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 on your vehicle so that we can monitor the progression, giving you a heads-up for when you will need more servce.
