Oil Change Advice | Woodstock, IL

 Top Oil Change Advice

One of the most frequent auto maintenance services is an oil change, and it's something that all drivers should pay attention to. The engine is the beating heart of a vehicle, so keep yours healthy with frequent oil changes. To help you become more informed about oil changes, we've put together information on why you should regularly change your oil, types of engine oils, and when you should get an oil change.

Synthetic vs. Conventional Oil

Does your Ford car, truck, or SUV need synthetic or conventional oil? Firstly, you should figure out which type of oil your vehicle takes. Some newer vehicles require synthetic while others still take conventional or synthetic blends.

If your vehicle takes conventional oil, you can use synthetic, and there is a benefit to doing so. Synthetic oil is designed to optimize your engine for increased performance. It also lasts longer than conventional oil, but is pricier as a result. Still, conventional oil is perfectly fine to use should you decide to do so.

Why Regular Oil Changes are Important

In order for your engine to run at its peak, its parts must be properly lubricated. If you let your engine oil run low or dry, you could damage the engine, resulting in costly repairs. You can do a quick check yourself to identify the engine oil level. Ensure the vehicle is warmed up and on level ground. Find the location of the dipstick, pull it out, and wipe it clean. Then, insert it again and take it out to see how much oil is left. If the oil isn't between the top and bottom lines, it's time for an oil change.

When Should I Get My Oil Changed?

We recommend referencing your owner's manual to find the proper oil change interval for your specific vehicle and the type of oil it requires. As a general rule of thumb, check your vehicle's engine oil routinely using the method described above.
