how-to-check-car-oil

Your car’s engine oil is one of the most important components that help propel your vehicle forward. Although it might seem minor to some Andrews drivers, you should always stay on top of your vehicle’s engine oil health in order to maintain its prowess while you’re driving and to prevent costly damages later on down the line.

Your vehicle’s engine oil helps lubricate the various metallic parts moving in and out of each other, it keeps the engine cool, and more. That’s why it’s so important to stay on top of your oil change frequency!

If you aren’t sure of how often should you change your oil, schedule a service appointment with the factory-trained mechanics at our service department at Tate Branch Hobbs for an oil change today!

Oil Change Frequency Based On Driving Styles

Depending on how you drive, your oil change frequency should be different. The certified mechanics at our Hobbs dealership recommend that you get your oil changed every 7,000 to 10,000 miles, but depending on your driving lifestyle, you may need to adjust this to prevent when you change your oil. The following driving lifestyles affect your oil change frequency:

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

Oil Change Tips

If you want to know more about how often should you change your oil for your car specifically, use the following tips that have worked for our Seminole customers:

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car. Synthetic oil costs more but lasts longer.
  • Oil eventually breaks down, even when the car isn’t driven on a consistent basis. If you don’t drive often, you should still change your oil at least twice per year.
  • Make sure you change your oil filter whenever you change your oil. Our parts center can assist you in getting the right oil filter for your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram.
