Oil Change & Filter
Engine oil is what lubricates a car’s engine, allowing it to run smoothly and last longer. Car owners must maintain a car’s engine by changing the oil and using the oil appropriate for their car’s make and model. Every car comes with a “check oil” light and an oil filter under the hood. These components allow car owners to monitor engine oil levels and add oil as needed without having to hire a mechanic.
Changing the Oil
An important part of routine car maintenance is changing the oil regularly. The necessary frequency of oil changes has become a point of contention among experts. With the advent of detergent oils and multi-weight oils, some vehicles can go as far as 6,000 miles before needing an oil change.
