When To Schedule An Oil Change
For years, the general rule for oil changes was to be sure to get an oil change every three months or 3,000 miles. However with recent and continuing advancements in automotive engineering and technology, most manufacturers recommend changing oil every 5,000 miles.
Of course, every vehicle is different and manufactured with unique performance specs and performance parts, so referencing your owner’s manual will give you the most accurate oil change intervals based on make and model. When you’re ready to schedule oil change service, contact the helpful team at the Acura of Avon service center.
What Makes Oil Changes So Important?
Oil helps the intricate parts of your engine run smoothly, cutting down on friction between all the moving parts. Over time, this lubricant can run low or get dirty, making it less efficient. Waiting too long between oil changes can cause unnecessary engine heating, poor driving performance, and a decrease in fuel efficiency, but most important, it can cause additional wear and tear.
How Do I Change My Oil?
To change your own oil, you must:
- Find the right kind of oil for your vehicle
- Collect tools for the job
- Drain oil from the drain plug
- Tighten the drain plug
- Change the oil filter
- Add the proper amount of new oil
- Measure the oil level
