February is the month of love. If you’re wondering what your vehicle longs for the most this Valentine’s season, it’s fresh oil. If you’re unsure of where to start with an oil change, follow along and read over these tips to fill up your ride with some love juice. After all, your vehicle runs on oil, and without it, you will run into expensive repairs, which is sure to put a dent in your wallet.
When Do I Change the Oil?
Any possible question you have about your vehicle can be answered by your handbook. Simply said, Google might tell you a generalized answer of when to get an oil change, but your owner’s manual is specifically made to give you answers about your own vehicle. Factors like the year model and how often you drive will determine how often you should head over to our auto service center for an oil change. While some vehicle owners tend to follow the every three months or 3,000 miles rule, some vehicles can stretch their oil as long as 7,500 to 10,000 miles.
Checking the Oil
While it may not be time to change your oil, it could be that you need to top off the oil, especially if you are driving a newer vehicle. You should be checking your oil levels monthly, whether you are required to use a dipstick or your vehicle has an electronic oil monitor. Your owner’s manual will explain how to do so.
