Certain services are necessary as part of routine servicing of all vehicles. No matter the brand or model you drive, an oil change is an important routine maintenance your car needs. According to most manufacturers, oil and filter changes should happen about every 5,000 miles. Some newer vehicles can wait up to 8,000 miles. Turbo and supercharged engine’s to be long lasting require oil changes every 5,000 miles and engine oil temperature gauge should indicate warm condition and it takes about 8-10 minutes to achieve before harder driving condition can be set.
At any servicing, the technician performs an oil change first to ensure the vehicle’s lifeblood is clean and ready to perform. New oil is thin and nearly clear-colored. It provides full lubrication level to the engine’s valves, pistons, and other moving parts. Resistance to heat is another quality of new oil. Keeping clean oil at the proper level helps the engine perform at its peak every time you drive. You will enjoy better fuel efficiency and a smoother ride.
