When was the last time you changed your oil? Although it seems like a small task, oil changes are vital to the health of your vehicle's engine. A running engine consists of many moving parts. Normally these would rub against each other, producing friction and heat, but the oil provides a layer of lubrication. Engine oil lessens the friction and carries away the heat.

Eventually the heat causes the oil to break down. It will cease to do its job as effectively, and can even form a sludge, clogging up parts of your engine. It is important to change your oil before this happens. While there are several factors, including the make and model of your vehicle and how often you drive, a good rule of thumb is to change your oil every 5,000 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. If it's coming up on that time again, we're here to help. Schedule an appointment with our service center today, and we'll take care of your oil in no time.
