A Vital Service

At Crestview Chrysler, we know that sometimes taking your vehicle in when it’s time for its recommended oil change can sometimes feel like a chore, or worse. That’s why we do everything we can to make things a little easier. And that also means keeping you informed on some of the reasons why it’s such an important service to have performed regularly. So, let’s go over some of the basics.

Protecting the Engine

Engine oil provides important protection to your engine, keeping it cool and distributing lubrication evenly so your engine operates smoothly and performs at its most efficient. Changing the oil is mandatory because over time, the oil begins to breakdown as dirt and debris begin to accumulate. Keeping the oil fresh, and at the proper levels, will continue to offer protection to your engine—the backbone of your vehicle.

The 5,000 Km Rule

Generally, the trusty 5,000 km rule is a good one to keep in mind, as it ensures your vehicle’s oil hasn’t been worn down too much. But now, with so many technological advancements, many manufacturers will recommend even longer intervals of time—sometimes even 6,000 km to 25,000 km or every 3 to 6 months—before you need to change your vehicle’s oil. To be on the safe side, it’s important to follow what your owner’s manual recommends.

Different Driving Styles

Different recommendations also depend on what type of driver you are. If you generally rack up a lot of km on the odometer then you could actually go longer than a driver who usually drives infrequently or one who continuously makes shorter trips. That’s because in the short trip mode, engines will heat up for quicker intervals and then cool down for longer periods of time, which can cause excess carbon to build up more quickly.
