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 cars make and model. Every car comes with a “check oil” light and an oil filler under the hood. These components allow car owners to monitor their oil levels. We have customers with 200,000 miles on their vehicles due to proper maintenance.
Changing Your Oil Is Probably the Most Important Maintenance For Maintaining A Healthy Engine and Extending its Life
Routine car maintenance includes 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. The best course of action is to check the owner’s manual and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
If the “check engine oil” light comes on while driving, this is a strong indication that the car is running low on oil. You may need to add oil. However, if the oil light stays on or lights up shortly after adding oil, there may be a leak and a mechanic should look at the car. We have a form to assist you in describing a leak found under your car to help us repair your vehicle properly the first time. We want to make it easy for you and clear to us.
