Do you have more questions about the servicing and regular maintenance? No problem! Let's go through a couple frequently asked questions to clear up any confusion.

 

When should I bring in my car for an oil change?

Check your owner's manual for the recommended intervals, but typically, it's a good idea to get your oil changed every 7,500 miles or 10,000 miles. The number of miles depends on several factors, such as the type of weather that you are driving in and the kind of driving that you do.

If you do a lot of stop-and-start driving over short distances, then you may want to change your oil closer to every 5,000 miles. The same is true for if you drive in cold weather often. It's a matter of whether your oil has a chance to heat up and function at its optimal temperature.

 

How do I know if I need an oil change?

Again, just check your manual or keep an eye on the number of miles since your last oil change. Sometimes it's possible to notice that your engine is making more noise than usual, but you don't want to rely on sound alone because the lack of clean oil could be damaging your engine.

If you don't mind rolling up your sleeves and looking yourself, you can use the dipstick to check the oil's color and consistency. The oil loses its transparent color over time, and by the time it's dark and opaque, it definitely needs changing.
