Every vehicle on the road depends on clean motor oil to keep things running smoothly. The oil in your engine keeps all of the moving parts properly lubricated, and it also helps to keep the engine cool to prevent overheating. When oil gets clogged and dirty, it can wreak serious havoc on your engine. Regular oil changes are an integral part of good vehicle maintenance and care. At Righter’s Auto Repair, we’re happy to be your one-stop-shop for all of your maintenance needs, including oil and filter changes.
Motor Oil Basics
For most vehicles, you should have the oil changed every 3,000 miles or per your manufacturer’s recommendations. However, if you drive a lot or drive in rugged terrain or through heavy traffic, you may need to have your oil changed more often. Check with your owner’s manual to find out when the best schedule is for your vehicle. We’re happy to set up a schedule for you so that you never forget to have it changed. If your motor oil looks dark, it’s definitely dirty and needs to be changed. Clean motor oil should have a thin, amber-colored hue. The filter should always be changed along with the motor oil to ensure that it properly catches any excess dirt, grime, and debris.
