Keep your car as efficiently as possible with regular oil and filter changes. As you drive, the internal metal components of your engine are continuously churning and rubbing. The more you drive, the more the oil breaks down and coagulates. Over time, this can clog key piping and damage the engine as a whole. If you starve your engine of fresh oil, it will break the engine without necessary lubrication. Outside of lubrication, engine oil helps to keep the engine cool by reducing the friction involved in this movement. Use fresh, clean oil to let your vehicle’s engine run smoothly and extend its life overall.

Depending on your vehicle, change your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.

Car owners can easily monitor their engine oil by checking under the hood. It is recommended that you check your vehicle’s oil every month. If there is any change in your vehicle’s performance, make sure to check the engine oil. Check the vehicle manual for reference.
