Learn more about the importance of oil changes and how our team can help.

Why Get an Oil Change?

You need clean oil to control heat and friction in your engine. Motor oil lubricates engine components to reduce heat and friction from building up in your engine. However, engine particles and debris get past your oil filter over time, which can cause your motor oil to become less efficient. If your oil becomes too old or dirty, heat and friction can damage your engine.

It's much easier and less expensive to schedule routine oil changes than it is to repair or replace engine components.

When Should I Change My Oil?

Most modern vehicles need an oil change between 5,000 and 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. The golden rule has been every 3,000 miles in the past, but most vehicles have improved engine technology to make for longer intervals. Consult your owner's manual and work with our service technicians to determine the best interval for you.

Signs Your Vehicle Needs an Oil Change

Paying attention to your vehicle and its performance is one of the best ways to catch developing issues. If you are experiencing rough engine idle, clattering sounds, and rough performance, it could be a cause of old oil. When checking the dipstick, if the oil is dark brown, milky, or gloppy, it's time for an oil change.

Choosing the proper grade of oil is crucial to your vehicle's performance. From conventional to full synthetic oil, your Certified Service expert will offer a range of oil types, including ACDelco Gold Conventional Oil, ACDelco dexos1™ Full Synthetic, and Mobil 1™ Full Synthetic Oil.
