Now's a Great Time to Check Your Oil

With fall here and cooler weather on its way, now is a great time check your oil and get an oil change. If you get an oil change now you may be able to forego getting one when it's colder out. Getting an oil change can sometimes feel like a hassle. However, this is one of the simplest things you can do to extend the life of your vehicle.

Oil keeps your engine running efficiently by reducing friction, providing lubrication, and by helping to cool engine parts. This works to protect the engine and prevent damage. Flushing the system of old oil, sludge, and other contaminants, plus adding new oil and changing the filter gives your engine the protection it needs for a long life.

How frequently do I need to change my oil? Typically the answer is every 7,500 or 10,000 miles for normal driving conditions, but the answer really depends on a variety of factors. Weather, short-distance travel, dust, and frequent towing or hauling can all affect the longevity of your oil change. Check your manual for your vehicles recommendations.
