Oil is the lifeblood of your engine, and is vital to the well-being of your vehicle. A running engine consists of many moving pieces brushing together. While normally this would cause friction and heat, which would cause the engine to break down, oil provides a layer of lubrication. Engine oil helps reduce friction and carries the heat away from the moving parts.

However, nothing lasts forever, and eventually the heat causes your engine oil to break down. As time goes on, the oil does not do its job as effectively. It can even form a sludge, clogging up parts of your engine. Fortunately, changing your oil is much easier than changing your engine. Recommended service intervals vary from model to model, as well has how much you drive. However, a good rule of thumb is to change your oil every 5,000 miles, or every six months, whichever comes first. If it's been about that long, or if you can't even remember when you last had your oil changed, schedule an appointment with our service center today. You'll be glad you did.
