Need an Oil Change in Amarillo? Here’s Why It’s Important.


Why are oil changes vital?
The practical explanation is that when you get your oil changed at regular intervals, you are saving the time, money, and hassle of dealing with a serious engine problem that could arise if you avoided regular engine care.

The scientific explanation is that as you drive your car, it burns up the oil coating your engine. With less oil to act as lubricant, there is more friction between all the parts of your engine that move. Replacing and replenishing this oil prevents wear and tear on your engine.

Additionally, motor oil helps cool down your engine, allowing you to drive safely without worrying about your engine overheating or malfunctioning.

What does a technician do during my oil change?
First, the technician will check the levels and the condition of your oil. Next, he or she will drain the old oil and replace the oil filter, which removes impurities from oil and keeps them from entering your car engine. Last, the technician will refill your oil.

How often do I need to schedule engine maintenance?
The right time for an oil change depends on the model, year, and mileage on your car. The way you drive it also plays a role in how quickly your oil evaporates.

Estimates on the interval of mileage your engine can sustain between oil changes varies, but will usually fall somewhere between 3,000 and 10,000 miles.

What if I want to check my oil myself?
Go for it. Use the following steps that show how to check your oil with a dipstick:

  1. Make sure your engine has been turned off for at least ten minutes.
  2. Pop your hood and locate the dipstick.
  3. Pull out the dipstick and wipe it across a lint-free cloth.
  4. Then place the dipstick back in the reservoir and pull it out.
  5. Check for an oily film on the dipstick’s end.

Note the level and color of oil. If the oil level is low, you might need to add more oil. If the oil is a clear golden brown color, your oil is in good shape. If it’s a silty dark brown or black with floating particles, it’s time to bring your car in for service.
