Routine oil changes are part of the important maintenance that your car needs to keep running smoothly. At Gates of Granger, we’re ready to help you with your oil changes and advise you on best practices. Check below to find out more about what you need to know about oil changes.
Automakers recommend synthetic oil for some models. This oil can last up to 7,000 to 10,000 miles, much longer than the typical 3,000 to 3,500 miles with conventional oil. Talk to our service technicians about your specific make and model and the type of driving you do, and we’ll be able to recommend the right oil for you!
Once you know how often your oil should be changed, stick to a schedule. It’s the single best thing you can do as a responsible car owner. If you’re due for an oil change, schedule service today. Oil gathers contaminants that cause friction when engine parts rub together. This wears your engine down quickly, and the damage is irreversible without a costly repair.
