Oil Change Service at South Bay Ford

When should you change your car’s oil?

Older vehicles:
The general rule for when to change your oil for older vehicles is every 3 months or 3,000 miles.
Vehicles that are driven under one or more of the following conditions should receive an oil change at a higher interval.
  • Consistent trips under 5 miles
  • High temperatures or dusty climates
  • Excessive traffic stop-and-go driving
  • Towing or hauling heavy loads

Newer vehicles:
Typically, newer vehicles have been equipped with an oil life monitoring system to tell you when an oil change is required. These systems used to be somewhat inaccurate, as they calculated oil life based on times and miles. Some of the even newer versions analyze engine operating conditions to determine when the oil begins to degrade.

While the oil monitoring system may be accurate, the manufacturer's maintenance schedule should always be followed – regardless of what the vehicle is telling you. Many modern vehicles have oil change intervals of 7,500 or even 10,000 miles. This is much more than the old 3 months/3,000 miles standard, saving you both time and money.

Always refer to your Owner's Manual for more detailed information.
Benefits of Regular Oil Changes:

Regular oil changes are a vital part of car care. During oil change services, old oil is drained from the engine and fresh oil is put back in. The oil filter is also replaced. This process has several benefits:
  • Lubrication
  • Cooling
  • Helps maintain a proper oil level
  • Improves gas mileage
  • Helps your vehicle last longer

Not performing regular oil changes can result in extensive engine damage and a repair bill. A low oil level, sludge build up, or engine oil that has broken down can lead to lack of engine lubrication. This causes friction between internal engine parts. Eventually, the parts overheat and fail, causing catastrophic engine failure. Call South Bay Ford today for a consultation.
