Why Do I Need An Oil Change?

An oil change is one of the most common service appointments for your vehicle. It is also one of the most important dates to keep on your calendar. The motor oil in your vehicle provides the following benefits:

  • Lubrication
  • Cooling
  • Protection

Motor oil cools and lubricates your engine’s moving parts. It thins over time, so regular oil changes shield the heartbeat of your vehicle. This protects critical parts with your engine and helps you drive with peace of mind.

What Is An Oil Change?

An oil change takes about 45 minutes. A factory-certified technician will check the following items off their list when you stop in for an oil change:

  • Recommend motor oil that matches your engine
  • Drain the motor oil
  • Remove the oil filter
  • Replace the motor oil and oil filter

When factory-certified technicians drain the motor oil from your vehicle, they are also cleaning your ride’s engine parts. Grime from the road can be removed. This makes it easier to drive with confidence.

How Often Do I Schedule An Oil Change?

That depends on a few things. Your mileage, and the type of engine in your vehicle, can impact the frequency of your oil change appointments.

Drivers behind the wheel of a vehicle with a conventional engine or hybrid engine may only have to schedule an oil change every 5,000 miles or so. If you are behind the wheel of a vehicle with a high-performance engine, you may require full synthetic motor oil that only needs to be changed every 15,000 miles.

Engine Type

Recommended Mileage

Conventional Engine

5,000 to 7,500 miles

Hybrid Engine

5,000 miles

High-Performance Engine

15,000 miles

If you don’t accumulate a significant number of miles, our team still recommends that you schedule an oil change at least every 12 months. This will help your engine maintain reliable output.
