As most drivers know, the condition of your vehicle is directly related to the status of its oil. However, that may be the only thing most drivers know about oil changes.
Changing your oil is a natural part of every vehicle’s journey. That’s why, Denton Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram (CJDR) has created this online library full of helpful resources that explain when and why you should get your vehicle’s oil changed.
To get a quick overview of what’s to come, drivers near Denton, Carrollton, and Flower Mound, TX, should continue reading below!
It used to be a well-known fact that drivers should change their oil every 3,000 miles. However, with advancements in modern, longer-lasting motor oil, it is now widely recommended to change your vehicle’s oil every 5,000 miles to 7,500 miles or once every six months. Of course, this timeframe depends on a host of variables, including how often you drive, your usual driving conditions, the age of your vehicle, and so on.
For a more specified time range, you could always check your vehicle’s manual.
In general, if you’re experiencing any of the following issues, it may be time for an oil change:
Motor oil is the ingredient that lubricates your engine so interior parts can work smoothly. When your oil is thin or old, it prevents this lubrication process from taking place. Instead, the car produces a high amount of heat due to friction.
If this is ignored, it can lead to the engine overheating and smoke billowing from under your hood. Unchanged oil can bring further damage to crankshafts, bearings, and camshafts.
The good news is that these situations are preventable if you stay up to date on your regular oil changes.
