When to Change Your Oil

When it comes to changing your oil, a good rule of thumb is to change it about every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. According to Edmunds, most carmakers now recommend oil changes between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. The type of engine oil, your make and model, and your driving habits determine when to change your engine oil. Our expert service members at South Lake Motors will be able to help you determine the ideal mileage at which your oil should be changed.

Why it's Important to Change Oil

Changing your oil is critical for many reasons. Over time, dirt can cause corrosion and decrease the life of an engine. Changing your oil lubricates the components under the hood as well as cools the engine. Too much friction in the engine creates heat and will overheat the engine. Routine oil changes and filter checkups ensure that your vehicle stays in good shape.
