What Is an Oil Change?

An oil change is the removal of old, dirty, and/or low engine oil. It is then replaced with new, clean oil. This process keeps your engine running properly and works hand-in-hand with many other components underneath the hood of your vehicle. If there is any buildup or debris, it is cleaned off the engine during the oil change process.

How Often Do I Need an Oil Change?

Great question! It largely depends on your vehicle, how often you drive, the distance you drive, and your driving habits. a general rule of thumb, with new vehicles, is that your oil should be changed every 5,000 miles. In older vehicles, it may need to be more often, likely around 3,000 miles or less. Consult your owner's manual for more information.
