Oil Change FAQ

  • Why does my car need oil changes? Oil lubricates your engine, protecting it from friction and heat. Over time, it can lose its protective quality, gather debris or start to break down, which can harm your engine. So it's important to change that oil regularly.
  • How often should I get an oil change? Many technicians recommend changing your oil every six months or 5,000 miles. But that number may change depending on your vehicle, your driving habits and the conditions you drive in. Check your owner's manual and talk to your technician to find out what's best for your car.

  • How can I tell if my motor oil is bad? Check your oil using the dipstick. The oil should be thin, light brown and free of debris. If it's thick, dark or full of debris, your oil is bad and needs to be replaced right away.
