It is recommended that oil changes occur every 3,000 - 5,000 miles to stop engine wear and keep oil free from particles; for your car's particular mileage always consult your owners handbook or ask one of our professionals.
Your vehicle counts on new oil and oil filters to keep it operating efficiently. Oil should be kept full, clean from particles and not burnt. Oil lubes crucial engine parts. Moving components create rubbing, and over time that heat wears the parts down. Oil or a synthetic lubricating substance can minimize the damage from the rubbing by those moving components. By performing a regular oil change schedule you will effectively increase your engine's efficiency as well as maintain the life of your car's engine.
