If you’re like many Americans, your car is one of your most important possessions. Although cars require regular care, many car owners tend to overlook how essential regular oil changes are to a car's upkeep. Changing your oil is more critical to your car than you might think.

How often do you need to get an oil change?

Typically, it is advisable to change your car's oil after every 3,000 to 7,500 miles. This is especially necessary if you drive in severe conditions. Additionally, the intervals for oil change vary depending on vehicle manufacturers and types of engines. During your regular maintenance at Walt's Auto Service, ask the specialists for recommendations regarding how often you should have your oil changed.

What happens when you don't change your oil regularly?

Failing to change your oil regularly could potentially lead to car problems. If you skip your regular oil change, some parts of the engine will become warn, making the engine less efficient. Lack of lubrication will cause the parts to wear out and eventually break down.

Oil Change Process

To ensure a successful oil change, we first determine the correct oil for your engine type. During this process, the engine should be warm. If you have an undercover, it must be removed. This provides access to the oil pan for easy removal of the drain plug.

Routine maintenance and regular oil changes will help ensure that your vehicle reamins on the road for years to come. Visit Walt's Auto Service today for an oil cahnge.
