When Should I Schedule an Oil Change?

To keep up with maintenance, you'll want to note when your car needs an oil change. Cars, even within the same brand, may need an oil change at different intervals. Make sure that you check your owner's manual to see what the manufacturer recommends or consult with our experienced service techs for their opinion.

Some manufacturers say it should be done every 5,000 miles, while others may suggest every 7,500 miles. In some cases, you may even hear 10,000 miles quoted, which usually concerns vehicles using synthetic oil. That's much less frequent than the past gold standard of 3,000 miles.


Why Does My Car Need an Oil Change?

The oil serves to lubricate the parts under the hood, so that your car runs smoothly. When you get an oil change, the oil looks gold and transparent. It moves through all the parts and helps it to perform well on the road.

Once you've been traveling for a few months, your car will pick up all types of debris and road dust. This matter clings to the oil and eventually pollutes it. It ends up dark, muddy, and much less effective in helping your engine run.


How Long Do Oil Changes Take?

Our skilled team of techs can quickly change the filter and replace the oil in less than an hour. In fact, it's one of the most common procedures we perform in the Quick Lane. That's because our techs take care of oil changes often and know how to efficiently get them done. They'll even watch out for other areas that may need attention and let you know.




Should I Add Extra Oil Myself?

If your vehicle is low on oil or due for an oil change, you may consider adding extra oil to compensate. By checking the dipstick, you can tell how much oil you have left.

While this can work in a pinch, it's a better idea to get the oil changed. If you mix the new oil with the old, it's just creating a sludgy substance that may not be as effective.
