FREQUENTLY ASKED OIL CHANGE QUESTIONS

  • Should I use Synthetic or Convetional Motor Oil in My Vehicle?

    The whole synthetic oil vs. conventional oil seems more complicated than it really needs to be.  By and large, many late-model vehicles are using synthetic motor oil, but it’s best to refer to your vehicle’s owner manual.

    Synthetic oil is refined, distilled, purified, and broken down into its basic molecules. Synthetic lubricants are manufactured using chemically modified petroleum components rather than whole crude oil, but can also be synthesized from other raw materials.

    This process removes more impurities from the crude oil but also enables individual molecules in the oil to be tailored to the demands of modern engines.

    Conventional motor oil is standard for many vehicles. Conventional oils are improved with chemical additives to help ensure they meet the requirements of vehicle manufacturers. This includes helping to keep internal engine surfaces clean, protecting against overheating and helping to provide resistance to breakdowns.

  • How often should you change your motor oil?

    Some manufacturers recommend oil changes at specific intervals (we suggest you refer to the owner’s manual).

    Some vehicles are equipped with on-board monitoring systems that indicate on the dashboard when an oil change is necessary.

    Keep in mind that when manufacturers recommend a set mileage interval, like 5,000 miles, it’s based on the anticipated conditions of “normal driving.” Service intervals will vary greatly depending on driver usage, for example, someone who primarily commutes 60 miles to-and-from work vs. someone who’s car only knows the stop-and-go city traffic.

  • How do I keep track of routine?

    We provide customers with our own maintenance stickers which we affix to the vehicle’s windshield as a reminder.  For late model vehicles, we also reset the oil light which will remind you when it’s almost time for your next oil change.
