Auto service experts say that getting an oil change can be one of the most critical maintenance actions you can take. Having your oil drained and replaced can keep your car on the road and functioning optimally.
City driving can be one of the harshest conditions for cars. Running to the mall, driving kids to school and sports and commuting to work can wreak havoc on your engine. These short bursts of driving don’t allow your engine and oil to heat up enough to eliminate moisture and prevent sludge in the system.
Perform regular oil changes. When you don’t change your oil, you are operating your engine with dirt and other contaminants circulating throughout the system. By changing your oil, you are removing all of those latent residues and giving your engine clean lubrication.
How often should you get your oil changed? That depends on what your car manufacturer recommends. Most automobile manufacturers recommend having a qualified car care center replace your oil every 3,000 to 7,500 miles. The auto repair experts at Rad Air can quickly take care of your oil change, giving you the peace of mind that your car is running on clean oil.
There are so many variances that can affect your auto’s oil life that no one “golden rule” fits all.
Variances that can affect your oil life include weather conditions, driving conditions, and annual mileage.
Because each driver and vehicle is different, no one answer fits every situation, but all drivers can start by consulting their vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for recommendations of a maintenance schedule. Remember, when it comes to an oil change, more often is better than less often.
