An oil change is the simplest, quickest way to ensure that your vehicle is running in its best shape at all times. And for drivers in the Westport area, our auto service center at Dartmouth Nissan is fully equipped to take care of your oil change and general auto maintenance needs.
Why Do I Need an Oil Change?
You might be wondering exactly why an oil change is so important. As you already know, your vehicle is made up of moving parts that keep it running smoothly. However, when these parts rub together, they cause friction and heat.
Oil absorbs this heat and lubricates the engine so that these parts can continue running correctly and your vehicle can operate normally. Over time, though, the oil wears out, and essentially doesn’t get its job done. This can ultimately cause issues in your engine if left unattended.
When you get an oil change, the auto technician will replace the old, worn out oil with fresh, new oil. They will change the oil filter, as well, along with checking to make sure all other fluids in your vehicle are filled, and the vehicle is running correctly in general.
How Often Should I Get My Oil Changed?
This depends both on your vehicle and the type of oil you’re using. If your vehicle requires conventional oil, we’d recommend having it changed around every 3,000-5,000 miles. However, using synthetic oil is a bit of a different story.
Synthetic oil lasts longer than conventional and most vehicles using it require an oil change around every 7,500 miles. Whether you choose synthetic or conventional, these numbers essentially depend on the make and model of your vehicle, along with your driving patterns and how often you drive.
