Types of Oil & Filter Services
The service technicians at Spitzer CDJR Homestead offer several types of oil and filter changes based on the manufacturer’s recommendations and the vehicle’s needs.
Newer vehicles, especially those with turbochargers or other high-performance components, benefit from a synthetic or synthetic blend oil. This man-made oil is highly refined to remove any impurities. It lubricates the engine components with low volatility to achieve better fuel economy. It also protects against stop-and-go traffic, idling, and extreme temperatures.
The service technicians also use conventional oil on vehicles that don’t need the added protection that synthetic oil provides. Standard, refined crude oil protects the engine from excessive heat with its natural viscosity.
Finally, the technicians also offer high-mileage oil changes for vehicles with more than 75,000 miles on the odometer. This type of oil change extends the life of older vehicles by preventing leaks, build-ups, sludge, and other engine issues.
No worries if you are uncertain about the engine oil that your vehicle needs. The experienced and knowledgeable service techs know what the manufacturer recommends, and they can advise you on the best engine oil for your daily driving needs.
Benefits of Oil & Filter Changes
To keep your vehicle running smoothly, it needs regular oil changes. As you drive, the oil moves through the engine parts, lubricating them to protect them from friction. The oil picks up dirt and debris as it flows through the engine. Most of the dirt and debris gets stopped by the filter, but some stays in the oil. When you get your engine oil changed, the service technicians remove the oil into a drain pan and remove the dirty filter. Then, they properly dispose of the old motor oil so it can be recycled.
If you don’t change your oil regularly, the oil becomes sludgy and fails to do its job causing the engine to lose efficiency and eventually seize.
Regular oil changes clean the engine and extend its life. They also protect other engine parts, like the crankshaft, rods, cylinders, and camshafts. Vehicles with regular oil changes get the most efficient fuel economy. Fresh oil helps vehicles pass emissions tests.
How Often Do Vehicles Need Oil & Filter Changes?
Vehicles need regular oil changes, but the actual intervals vary for different makes and models. The general rule for older vehicles was every 3,000 miles or every three months. People who drive their vehicles in stop-and-go traffic with lots of idling time should get more frequent oil changes. Some newer vehicles only need oil changes every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.
The two best places to find out how often your vehicle needs an oil change are the owner manual and the service advisor at Spitzer Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Homestead.
