Worse yet, the oil degrades, eventually becoming an oily sludge. The sludge blocks the engine’s oil galleries and other passageways while dramatically increasing resistance against the moving parts. All this adds up to an increased risk of catastrophic engine failure.
Your vehicle needs an oil change every 3,000 to 10,000 miles, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Synthetic motor oil lasts longer than conventional oil, but harsh driving conditions can shorten its lifespan. If you need clarification about your vehicle’s specific needs, our service advisor and technician will work together to determine the ideal oil change intervals for you. During your appointment, we’ll change your oil and oil filter, check the status of other fluids, perform inspections, and address any additional needs your vehicle may have.
