Speaking of service, one of the most routine and common maintenance needs your car will experience is an oil change. Every driver knows that it’s important to get one, but why? And what are some signs that you may need an oil change?
As you drive, your oil gets dirty, clogging with dirt and grime.
If this continues, it can create friction under your hood. If not addressed, this friction and heat can damage your engine. That is why changing your oil is so important.
On top of that, changing your oil can help enhance your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
It’s not just about miles. If you don’t drive your car a lot, your oil still needs to be kept fresh. Even if you drive fewer miles each year than your automaker suggests changing the oil (say, 6,000 miles, with suggested oil-change intervals at 7,500 miles), you should still be getting that oil changed twice a year.
If you notice any of these symptoms, or if you’ve surpassed 10,000 miles, feel free to visit us in Southﬁeld, MI. Our team would be happy to help you with all of your service needs, including helping you with your oil change.
