So, what is an oil change?

An oil change is a routine maintenance service that involves draining the old engine oil from your vehicle’s engine and replacing it with fresh, clean oil. The process typically includes:

  • Draining the old oil from the engine.
  • Replacing the oil filter to ensure efficient filtration of contaminants.
  • Adding the appropriate amount and type of new engine oil, as specified by the manufacturer.
  • Lubricating essential engine components.
  • Checking for oil leaks and ensuring proper oil pressure.

Oil changes are essential because they help maintain the engine’s lubrication and cooling capabilities, ensuring that it runs smoothly and efficiently. Regular oil changes also contribute to extending the lifespan of your engine and preventing costly repairs.
