Why and When Do I Change the Oil?
There are many moving parts in your engine that need lubrication in order to operate smoothly and efficiently. Motor oil provides this lubrication. It also collects the dust and dirt that enters the engine through the air intake system and traps them in the oil filter.
But, engine oil breaks down over time, losing its ability to protect your engine. That’s why you need to change your oil periodically—to keep your engine running in peak condition. Generally, this should be every 5,000 miles or six months, or whatever the manufacturer recommends in your owner’s manual. However, since other factors are often involved—driving conditions, driving habits, and the age or condition of the vehicle—it’s hard for the average driver to be sure.
To be certain about when and how often to change the oil in your car, you can visit the top-rated Service Department at Arrigo CDJR of Margate and let our knowledgeable experts figure out what’s best for your vehicle.
How Long Will My Oil Change Appointment Take?
If you make an oil change appointment with us at Arrigo CDJR of Margate, the entire process typically takes only about 30-45 minutes. Our Maintenance Service Experts will first inspect the oil and oil levels, then drain out the existing oil, change the oil filter, and put new oil into the engine.
When they’re finished, they’ll check to make sure everything is working properly, and have you back on the road in no time. If you’re bringing your vehicle in for an oil change, it’s also a good time to do other scheduled maintenance services such as a tire rotation, an alignment check, or a battery test.
What Type of Motor Oil Do I Need?
Our professionals look at many factors when determining the proper oil to use. They’re experts at knowing which type of engine oil is best for your car—synthetic oil, conventional oil, a synthetic blend, or high-mileage oil. As a general rule:
- Conventional Motor Oil is the standard new-car oil that works perfectly well for most regular duty vehicles.
- Full Synthetic Oil is manufactured for high-tech engines or heavy-duty vehicle use—like a Ram 1500 that does a lot of towing, or a Chevrolet Corvette with a supercharged LS engine.
- Synthetic Blend Oil is formulated to provide better protection for heavier engine loads and higher temperatures.
- Higher-Mileage Oil has added conditioners that help maintain older engine seals that are showing signs of cracking and wear.
